Food is a Form of Health Insurance

So, I just read about this guy's interesting life here.  The Yahoo Finance story is about a man who lives on an income of $11,000 per year.  I thought it was so cool that I absolutely had to share it with you.  Here are some key quotes by the subject of the article:
"I eat pretty well. I don't skimp on food. I eat a lot of grass-fed meats, fruits, and vegetables ... some people call it the caveman diet. I go to farms, farmers markets, and health food stores. I probably spend about $250 a month on food. I could spend a lot less if I didn't care about eating well."
"I don't go out much at all. I prefer the food I make to what I get in restaurants. More often than not, I'm disappointed. I'm pretty health-conscious and I want my food to be real food, so I'm content eating what I make."
When asked if he splurged on anything he answered:
"The food I eat. I don't feel like I'm skimping at all. It's a form of health insurance to me."
Food is a form of health insurance.....couldn't have said that better myself.

It shoots down the argument that our diet is elitist and unaffordable. And yes - it's the best health and life insurance!
