Infographic: The ultimate comeback to shoppers' #1 excuse for not eating healthy

Save money and live 10 years longer? Put the power of real, healthy food into perspective for your shoppers.

"Eating healthy costs too much money."

This is a common excuse in our cheap, fast-food culture. I'll admit, even I've muttered this complaint to myself in the Whole Foods checkout line. Occasionally skipping the better (more expensive) organic choice to save grocery money seems harmless, right? Wrong.

Apparently, opening up my wallet and making healthy choices today could save me $1,429 per year.

What if more people knew that they could save $1,429 per year in health care and medications simply by eating healthier? Or that obese people can die 10 years earlier than those at a healthy weight?

Food Revolution's Bring Food Education Back infographic certainly puts the power of real food into perspective.

What are your shoppers' excuses for not eating healthy?
