Plant-based Diet the Most Economical

A new study of dietary patterns and grocery-store spending among 79,191 women participants in the Nurses’ Health Study reveals that the healthiest eaters spent 24% more on groceries, and experience less high blood pressure and type-2 diabetes.

Interestingly, the study did not compare the grocery outlets used to purchase the foods. The authors were quick to emphasize that “large improvements in diet can be achieved without increased spending.”
