In a lot of areas basic healthy foods were just too expensive. We're talking apples, whole grain pasta, milk, lean ground beef-the bare basics. There were startling variations in some cases where none would be expected. But the real surprise was that cookies, pop and junk food-there was little variation no matter where the location, even in the far North. So what can we do, fellow Ds, to try and keep to a healthy diet. We all have basic living costs-and the real biggy-health costs- to contend with in this economy.
