DESCRIPTION: When measured on a cost per serving, cost per weight, or cost per nutrition basis, fruits and vegetables beat out meat and junk food.

I have some other videos along the same vein:
· Eating Healthy on the Cheap (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/eating-healthy-on-the-cheap/)
· Biggest Nutrition Bang for Your Buck (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/biggest-nutrition-bang-for-your-buck/)
· Cheapest Source of Vitamin B12 (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/cheapest-source-of-vitamin-b12/)

· Are Goji Berries Good for You? (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/are-goji-berries-good-for-you/)
· Superfood Bargains (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/superfood-bargains-2/)

Hasn’t the nutrition of our crops declined over the decades though? Or is that just supplement manufacturer propaganda. Find out in my video Crop Nutrient Decline (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/crop-nutrient-decline/). And if you want to strive to maximize the nutrienbt density of your diet, check out Calculate Your Healthy Eating Score (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/calculate-your-healthy-eating-score/).

Have a question for Dr. Greger about this video? Leave it in the comment section at http://nutritionfacts.org/video/eating-healthy-on-a-budget/ and he’ll try to answer it!

  1. You can get quite a …
    You can get quite a bit of protein from legumes, nuts, seeds, grains – and
    yes, fruits and veg contain protein. The question is: How much do you need
    and is too much a bad thing? Well… we don’t need very much protein (you
    get enough protein by eating enough calories on a half-decent diet) and we
    know that too much from animal sources is damaging to our health. So what’s
    the problem?

  3. Watch this guy’s …
    Watch this guy’s video called “Uprooting the Leading Causes of Death”. It’s
    the top hit on youtube. It’s about what else you get when you eat animal
    products – 15 of America’s leading causes of death. They are all tied to
    meat and dairy consumption. Vegan diets are not only nutritionally
    adequate, but prevent, all 15 leading causes of death as well as treat and
    reverse some of them.

    Wow, research from the late 1800s. Fascinating. This video is a good
    reminder to me that we should be critical of how government (and anyone)
    defines “healthy food”. Ask: What’s behind the numbers?

    Yeah, and how about the cost savings when you make over a couple flower
    beds and grow your own kale? Not much news here WFPB vegans have been
    knowing and saving, now and later, for many, many years! All the best,
    people.

    100% vegan for a few years now and my c reactive protein is almost zero.

  10. Nutrient density …
    Nutrient density should have been measured per calorie, as Dr Greger did
    with calcium sources.

  12. Organ meats and …
    Organ meats and animal products from pastured animals (including raw dairy
    and eggs), bone broths and fermented foods have the highest nutrient value
    absent of caloric content which should ALWAYS be measured separately and
    therefore provides more bang for your buck. That’s a real nutrition fact!

    I don’t eat meat and I don’t leave the table hungry. I spend about the same
    on groceries as I did before I quit eating meat, but I eat a lot healthier.

  14. Potatoes and pasta …
    Potatoes and pasta really aren’t that bad if you’re eating them whole —
    with all the grain and skin intact. Just get some nutrient dense veggies on
    the side and you should be good.

    In addition, when we consider the hidden health care cost associated with
    consuming harmful foods, the overall variance in cost is almost
    immeasurable.

  16. I think you’re …
    I think you’re caught in the trap of believing that more protein is better,
    and that’s not true, especially when you’re talking about animal protein.
    Let’s say you required 80g of protein (a 180lb male who works out requires
    this), 1 cup lentils, 1 medium potato, 1/5 block of tofu and one small can
    of kidney beans will give you over 60g and you’re only at 1000 calories…
    the rest is simple to get. I got over 90g today just eating regular stuff
    (no fake meats or tofu).

    No problem just stating some facts, lean meat is all protein. Percentage
    wise you won’t find anything in the vegetable or fruit world with that much
    protein. What are some high protein legumes? Nuts and seeds come with a lot
    of fat, healthy fat I know but still fat. What grains have a lot of
    protein?

  25. The amount of …
    The amount of protein you need really just kind of goes the same as how
    many calories you need. If you’re the average person that doesn’t work out,
    your need isn’t too heavy. However if you’d like to put on some muscle mass
    or lose some weight through cardio, you need that protein, and around 1-1.5
    grams per pound of bodyweight. Not trying to preach or anything, just felt
    like sharing
