Groceries

In an ideal world, we can all afford locally produced, non-gmo, organic food.  We would have CSAs (vegetables delivered to us directly from the farmers) and our meat would come from local butchers who wrap everything in butcher paper.  The reality is that if we are living on a shoestring, we are likely going to choose the cheap apple, not the organic apple.  If occasionally, we are able to put an organic apple in the cart, then we can do a happy dance as we nourish ourselves and the planet.

Studies show that it costs the average family over  $2000.00 more per year to eat healthy food.  The Resilient Wallet will explore ways to eat well without blowing the budget.
