HEALTH MATTERS, FEB. 5, 2020: DIET COSTS

Health Matters

Eating a healthy diet doesn’t always have to be expensive.

University of Alabama College of Community Health Sciences faculty member and Registered Dietician Suzanne Henson said it’s not complicated to live healthy within a budget.

“There are foods on those shelves that are cost effective, and so hopefully we can fight that myth that eating healthy is expensive,” Henson said.

While you can buy out of season fruit fresh any time of the year, it’s more expensive than shopping for what’s being grown in season. But there is a way to get great veggies and fruits throughout the year for a wallet-friendly price, Henson said.

“One of my favorite tools is to use frozen produce,” she said.
