Save on Natural Foods

Does it seem like every time you go into the natural food store you come out with a small bag of groceries and a big hole in your pocket? There is no doubt that organic and natural foods come with a high price tag, however, it's possible to cut corners without losing quality. Just like in the regular supermarket, the most expensive foods are the processed and heavily packaged snack foods. Do you really need that bag of organic volcanic sea salt potato chips? The way to save money on natural foods is to only buy the base ingredients, and better yet, buy them in bulk.
If you have a chance, participate in a local food co-op to get the best savings. Buying in bulk means buying the base ingredients from large sacks, these are already bought at a low price directly from the vendor by the store and so you are only paying a slightly marked up price. Here you'll find: beans, rice, flour, grains, granola, spices, and in some cases even dairy products. The next step is learning how to cook. With a diet based on these ingredients you can cook delicious food, save money and be healthy!
