Although healthy foods can be affordable, if less healthy foods are cheaper, individuals may have an economic incentive to consume a less healthful diet. Using the Quarterly Food-at-Home Price Database, the authors explore whether a select set of healthy foods (whole grains, dark green vegetables, orange vegetables, whole fruit, skim and 1% milk, fruit juice, and bottled water) are more expensive than less healthy alternatives. They find that not all healthy foods are more expensive than less healthy alternatives. They also find considerable geographic variation in the relative price of health

In fact, the basic staples of soul food include lots of healthy vegetables: dark leafy greens, sweet potatoes, and high-fiber black eyed peas just to name a few.
