I hear all the time, how expensive it is to eat a variety of fruits and vegetables. But really, if you stick to the basics, buy what's on special, and stay out of the fresh meat case, you can get away with spending the same money for healthier choices as you would on crap.
One neat phenomenon about eating high nutrient foods - is that you aren't as hungry as often. Yep, you read it here first. Eat 5-7 fruits/veggies and you won't be as hungry even on less calories. Now, everyone knows that dietary fiber fills up your tummy and helps that physical sensation to click saying "I'm full." But what most people miss is that your body is pretty smart...it craves nutrients - NOT FOOD.

Last night I made Turkey Burgers for the fam and had one of those *shrug.* On Wednesday, I had some chips with a little sour cream. *Eh* Like I said before, I'm not doing this to make a statement or be a trend setter. I just want to keep crossing finish lines when I'm 70.
