Let's face it - most of the cheap food is processed. So, how are you expected to eat healthfully while on a budget? During the summer, I've found local farmers markets to be a money saver, plus the produce is fresh and I like supporting local food. But what happens when winter hits? How do you maintain healthy eating while staying on budget?

I'm part of a CSA, and it's great. The CSA I belong to allows you to customize your package a bit - the quantity of specific fruits and vegies as well as the overall size of the package. Good idea to look into a CSA!

lots of local farms offer CSAs (Community Supported Agriculture). They are programs offered by local farms. Basically, you pay a flat fee, and every month you pick up (or are delivered) an assortment of seasonal produce (and sometimes eggs). It's actually pretty cool - you may discover some new produce, plus you'll still be supportive local farming.

To find a CSA near you, try: www.localharvest.org
