Is it possible to eat healthy on a budget?

It's extremely easy, because you'd eat mostly raw ingredients -- vegetables, fruits, milk, grains, etc. The more that food is processed, the worse it is for you -- and often the most expensive due to the processing costs, advertising, etc. A large salad with some cooked beans and a small can of tuna or cheese is a fabulous, filling thing to eat and costs very little. In addition, drinking plain water (tap or in large jugs) is probably the healthiest way to drink and also the cheapest.
