10 cost-friendly organic foods

Posted: Updated:

It can be tough to eat healthy on a budget, but there are many high-quality, organic foods that can be bought on the cheap.

Those who want to avoid additives like aspartame, genetically-modified ingredients, high-fructose corn syrup, and MSG don't need to break the bank to do it. Shopping in bulk and by season is a financially friendly way to build up a dynamic and healthy diet of whole foods.

According to the documentary "Food Stamped," it is possible for a couple living on food stamps to afford a well-balanced diet of organic ingredients. In 2009, the two filmmakers were able to subsist on an organic diet for about $40 a week as part of their experiment to live on a food stamp diet, which averaged out to a budgeted dollar per meal.

The most recent data released by the U.S. Department of Agriculture on March 8 shows a record 47.6 million Americans use food stamps, a number that tops the total population of some large nations.
