The Cheapest Places to Buy Healthy Food

where to find cheap healthy food

I have been on my healthy living journey for quite some years now, so I thought it might be helpful to list where I source all my food from.

When choosing food, I take into account two things: cost and convenience. I am on quite a tight budget, so I try to keep the cost down as much as possible. Of course, it would be great if everything I ate was organic, but in reality I just can’t afford that. So, my general rule is if I can get it organic for less than double the price of non-organic, I’ll buy it. If it’s double the price or more, I just have to go with the standard version of the food. Secondly, it’s gotta be convenient to get a hold of it. I don’t have time to drive all the way out to Woop Woop just because I can get something for a dollar cheaper there.

So, here is a list of the places I’ve found to be the cheapest and most convenient for me to find nourishing food:
