    I can't find it but Cornell University puts out a list of all the most nutritious and cheapest foods in order to dispel that myth. I think part of the myth comes from the truth that if you do live in the inner city it is very difficult to buy fresh produce. But if you have access to fresh produce, there is no reason you can't eat healthy and cheaply. Check out your local thrift store for cookbooks and get cooking!

    that is true! people in the inner city are really at a disadvantage. i read something, i think in Mother Jones, that most of the stores in inner cities are bodegas that do not even have fresh produce or whole grain foods, and milk is much more expensive.

    Healthy foods are always better than noodles and quick soups, but they also cost more so the choice is not obvious. But for a diet better healthy food.
