Some food for thought

A family size bag of Nacho Doritos usually costs $3.29. The same amount of money can buy you a pound and half of grapes instead. To sweeten the deal, the grapes only have 63 calories and 0.3 grams of fat per 1 cup serving verses the 140 calories and 7 grams of fat per 1 ounce serving (a small handful) of the Doritos.

A candy bar costs up to $1. An apple or orange is a better bang for your buck. You can buy 2 apples or oranges (mix and match) that make a much more nutritious and cheaper snack.

Next time you think eating healthfully costs too much, think twice and remember that it can actually save you money!
