healthy living is expensive

May 19, 2008 - 4 comments

Day One

came back from the health food store and got all of the things suggested in the thomas recipe, and boy was it all expensive!  Almost $100 later, I really hope that this stuff helps and that i didn't waste my money! We will see how it goes today.  Mostly just anxious so far, runny nose and sore throat are present but not terrible yet.  I am also freezing cold but sweating my behind off at the same time. Lovely!

It will also take time for all those vitamins to kick in as well. To bad you could not of started them a week or so before detoxing...

     Good Luck,

I agree with you completely. Safer and healthier food is indeed more expensive, either directly (cash) or in the time and effort taken to acquire it. Personally, I love Whole Foods. You generally won't find high fructose corn syrup, MSG, dyes, pesticides, etc. Just good organic food made the way our grammas would have made it - just pure stuff and simple ingredients. No polysorbate 80.

The produce section is where the greatest damage is done to the pocketbook. And if you choose organic, trying desperately to keep unwanted chemicals out, the price is even higher. Many towns have farmers markets, where you find things a bit cheaper. But now you need to factor in the level of effort (time, commuting, crowds, etc.). It all has a cost, unfortunately.

We're all in the same boat it seems.

Wishing you the best of health (and discounts where you can find them).
