The Healthiest Foods For Your Money: A Shopping Guide

 

Eating healthy on a budget isn’t difficult… as long as you know the best stuff to buy! The Environmental Working Group (EWG) recently published a first-of-its-kind guide to eating healthy on a budget. And that’s not all — they’ve also factored in food safety concerns, like the levels of pollutants, pesticides and artificial ingredients. After analyzing a list of 1,200 foods from government surveys and tests, they narrowed it down the top 100. Click through to explore the best fruits, veggies, grains, nuts, dairy and more. You should also check out the EWG’s website, where you’ll find even more tips, tools and useful information.
