It's not just an excuse: Nutritious eats really are more expensive than food that won't do a body good.
According to a new study, healthful food is $1.50 more expensive per day, or about $550 per year.
But that certainly doesn't mean you can give up on fruits and veggies, nor does it mean that lean meats and whole grains have to break the bank. Here are eight of our favorite superfoods -- all of which cost less than a buck per serving. Now that's delicious!
