From the rising cost of healthcare to the price of our carbon footprint, Ed and Rachelle explain your options for saving money by eating healthy. How can you get cheap, healthy meals if you’re cooking at home or eating at a fast food restaurant? What are the benefits of buying from farmers markets or CSAs? They also debate which if microwave ovens are bad for the environment, how to find affordable and nutritious food in the supermarkets, how to start a vegetable garden with your own DIY compost, and why veganism is a good option for your body and your wallet.
LESSONS FROM THE BEGLEYS:
Buy organic and locally whenever possible.
Better yet, grow your own vegetable garden. Make your backyard your grocery store.
Change to a plant-based diet is one of the best ways to lower your carbon footprint. You don’t have to do it all at once. Every little change counts.
