I actually find it easy to eat healthy on a budget.

Brown rice, beans, chicken on sale, veggies from the farmer's market, cabbage (I've been on a big cabbage kick lately), lentils, all are very cheap.

The more expensive things that I eat are ones that tend to last longer - my protein powder is $28 a container, but it lasts me a month or more. Milk is a little spendy, but I use it to make my own yogurt (which saves $$) plus to make protein shakes. Meat/fish is probably the most expensive thign I buy, but I could do w/out it if I needed to. Or buy frozen and on sale.
