I'm a pretty big believer in buying healthy food but even I admit that it can be difficult. With fast food costing sometimes as little as $1, there are times when it can be very difficult to stay healthy while on a tight budget. A few months ago, I asked two of my favorite bloggers to share their best tips for eating your favorite Latin foods on a budget.

Today it's even easier to do it, though, thanks to the Environmental Working Group combining forces with anti-hunger group Share Our Strength to create a great healthy shopping guide for low-income households. And, luckily for us, quite a few of our foods made it onto their "Good Food on a Tight Budget" list. Check it out, below, to find out how to buy healthy Latin food while staying cost-conscious.

Fruits

The best healthy Latin fruit to buy even when you're on a budget include avocado, banana, grapefruit, papaya, starfruit, watermelon and dried apricots or mango.

However, don't overdo it on the dried fruit! They tend to have LOTS of sugar, so stick to no more than 1 serving (1/4 cup).
