RODALE NEWS, EMMAUS, PA--Despite what some economists say, times still feel pretty tough, and few of us are ready to throw caution to the wind and start emptying our wallets on fancy clothes and gourmet food. A survey published in early 2009 even found that people were cutting their food budgets by spending less on healthy food and more on, of all things, hotdogs! But a new study shows that you don't have to live on white bread and wieners to save money; eating healthy foods can be just as cost-efficient. The research, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that eating healthy foods on a budget is as easy as replacing some red meat with less-expensive whole grains and beans.
