8. Myth: Eating healthy is too expensive
Truth: Well that’s just poppycock. A survey by the USDA found that, by weight, bottled water is cheaper than soda, low-fat milk is cheaper than high-fat, and whole fruit is cheaper than processed sweet snacks. Preparing homemade food may be slightly more labor-intensive than popping a frozen pizza in the oven, but a pot of lentils is cheaper and healthier than packaged, processed macaroni and cheese any day of the week!
