At the grocery store, why do you find yourself reaching for the bag of chips rather than a package of kale? The reason, new studies from Consumer Reports suggest, might be the high price.
The study analyzed eating habits of women nationwide, and found that most women found excuses to not buy healthy food. Price was the number one reason to skip the veggie and fruit section, with 57 percent responding yes. Also a factor in whether or not women eat healthy? Social temptations. Nearly 48 percent of women responded that when in company, they tended to eat worse than when they were alone.
