With the economy the way it is right now, it may seem harder than ever to eat healthfully on a budget. But there is something that you can do that will help your health and your bank account. Be a vegetarian just one day per week.

Meat is one of the most expensive items in the American diet, and it is often a source of saturated fat. So by being a vegetarian once a week, you can focus on getting more plant-based foods that are high in nutrients like antioxidants and fiber, while still enjoying meat the other six days of the week.
