"But it's too expensive to eat healthy!" If I had a dime for every time I heard this excuse I'd be one of the youngest retirees on the face of the planet. Eating healthy has become synonymous with eating expensively, but it doesn't have to be. It is what you make of it.

You can spend a fortune shopping at the trendiest and fanciest health food store down the block filling your cart full of high end organic produce, or you could accomplish the same by seeking out less conventional routes for grocery shopping. This is where food co-ops come into play.

My local vegan cafe gets all of it's ingredients for their vegan cakes and savouries from Highland Wholefoods, which is a kind of co-op, which drastically reduces costs.

The Riverdale Centre also sell these ingredients on in their organic health food shop, which means they are at a reasonable price.

I agree more independent retailers should use co-ops as sources to be able to offer regular health foods to more people at an affordable price.
