Operation Frontline: Healthy Meals for Less

While we’re on the topic of gluten-free meals and cutting costs, here’s a Boston Globe article I wrote about eating well in a down economy and Share Our Strength’s Operation Frontline, a nutrition education program for low-income families. Check out the article for tips on healthy eating on a budget, but more than that, check out Operation Frontline—it’s a great program and its mission of feeding families well for less is an important one, especially these days.

As a 20/30-something living with cancer, health and affordability are key. It is easy to fall prey to health food labeling that claims no anti-biotics, no high fructose corn syrup. Beans and apples don’t have these nasty additives either but, as you point out, with no labeling they seem so blasé. I’ll share this article with my blog readers: we need a reminder that Cascadian Farms and Whole Foods are not the only way to be healthy.
