Healthy eat­ing is cheaper (re­ally!)

Weight Watchers Magazine (Australia) - - Food // Fit // Feel -

There’s a com­mon mis­con­cep­tion that healthy eat­ing is ex­pen­sive, but the Di­eti­tians As­so­ci­a­tion of Aus­tralia (DAA) be­lieves there are plenty of ways Aussies – es­pe­cially uni stu­dents who might be strapped for cash and need plenty of nu­tri­tious food to boost cog­ni­tive de­vel­op­ment – can choose healthy foods on a bud­get. Tim Mc­mas­ter, DAA spokesper­son and ac­cred­ited prac­tis­ing di­eti­tian, sug­gests hav­ing an ap­ple (45c/100g) in­stead of a cho­co­late bar ($2.20/50g), por­ridge (15c/30g rolled oats) over corn­flakes (30c/30g) and buy­ing lean raw chicken (40c/100g) rather than pre-made ke­babs ($2/100g).
