When we’re grocery shopping for our family, we’re balancing a lot of priorities. Of course we want food that’s nutritious and tastes good, but we also want to stay on budget and buy food that doesn’t come at too high of an environmental cost. Balancing these goals can be tricky. Foods that taste good aren’t necessarily healthy, while foods that are grown sustainably can often be budget busters. That’s what makes the Environmental Working Group’s new shopping guide so handy.
The EWG’s shopping guide, called “Good Food on a Tight Budget,” highlights foods that are rich in nutrients but come at a lower price and are relatively low in pesticides, contaminants, and artificial ingredients. Foods are presented by category like fruits, grain, protein, etc. so it’s easy to plan your shopping trip. There’s also a fair amount of useful, easy-to-understand nutrition information so that you can see why they’re recommending the foods they do. Interested in learning more? Head over to the Envirnmental Working Group’s website and check it out.
