Does it Really Cost More to Eat Healthy?

Published on April 4, 2014,

Self-described ‘rogue nutritionist’ Jonny Bowden asks on his blog if it really costs more to eat healthily. His answer? In the short term yes (and it will be more difficult too), but the long term benefits are well worth it…

Does it Really Cost More to Eat Healthy?I want to talk to you about two subjects virtually everyone is interested in: food and money. Specifically, I want to address the frequently heard complaint that it costs much more to eat healthy. Don’t worry-I’m not going to give you a lecture about how much broccoli you could eat for the price of a Big Mac, or how, if you were really inventive, you could make a four course nutrient dense meal for the price of two large bags of Dorito’s and a 2 liter coke. That stuff may be true, but it doesn’t speak to your experience, which is that calories are generally cheap, and good food (like grass-fed meat) isn’t. And that it takes a lot of work (and time!)
