An apple a day keeps the doctor away, and a carrot a day will keep spending at bay. Or make that any vegetable, really. As DailyFinance reports, eating greens saves you green. The reader’s digest version: Invest in your health now so that you’re not paying astronomical prices for health-related issues in the future. But also save money now by buying veggies over other food staples that are donning higher price tags (i.e. beef, pork, and coffee). For lower prices on produce, shop locally, buy seasonally and don’t fear the freezer. Buy in bulk, chop and freeze. Maybe even consider growing your own.
