4. You Don’t Buy the Least Expensive Produce

Some people are willing to spend endless time looking for a bargain. For them that might mean hitting up several stores for the lowest prices. I don’t like to be bothered with that, but there are a few points to keep in mind when shopping for healthy foods–especially fruits and vegetables. Avoid choosing out-of-season produce like fresh strawberries in January, because that’s when you’ll pay big bucks for them (not to mention that they won’t taste like much). Instead, in the dead of winter opt for cauliflower or chard. Keep up to date about the fruits and vegetables that are best to buy organic–and the ones that are not–so you can spend your money on the ones that count and save on the ones that don’t.
