Being a university student on a budget, and a strict one at that, it often seems that the food available to buy is all heavily processed and quite unhealthy at a low cost. Instant Mac and Cheese only goes so far. Does anyone have ideas on what type of foods are environmentally friendly, and healthy, without breaking the bank?
Typically, I shop at Safeway® because it is the most convenient and closest (I use public transit in a large city) location. I buy fruits and vegetables as often as I can, but recently began thinking about where they actually come from? Is it even worth it if your bell peppers came from 3000 km away? I've always been environmentally aware, but now, I would like to start making a larger effort to be eco-friendly.
Thanks for any advice out there!
