If you’re someone who associates healthy eating with being too costly, I get it. It’s cheaper to purchase a finished prepackaged meal, and throw it into the oven or microwave.
BUT, when it comes down to it, the research shows that eating a diet consisting of only whole foods costs approximately £1 more per day than a diet of processed foods. That’s less than your morning cup of ☕️ .
