Kelly Clarkson: ‘Eating healthy is really expensive’

Kelly Clarkson is reportedly getting focused on eating healthy. During a visit to the Today show as a guest co-host earlier this week, Clarkson admitted that eating healthy is "really expensive," and that she might not have been able to afford it when she was growing up. Today host Hoda Kotb sat down with The Voice judge to discuss beauty trends and weight loss.

Clarkson is a mother of four; she has an autoimmune disease and thyroid problems. So she turned to a book called The Plant Paradox, which she credits with essentially teaching her to "understand food and understand what we do to food."

The book encourages people to avoid foods like whole grains, dairy, nuts, and things like tomatoes that can cause inflammation, and Clarkson noted that trying to feed her family from a much more limited, organic, fresh menu is terribly expensive.

“Honestly, I’m going to be real with you. It’s really expensive to do. I wish the government would really back humanity on this because it’s really, really hard to find [ingredients]. I was poor growing up, there’s no way my family could have afforded this. It helps out so much with health. Like I said, my auto-immune disease is, like, gone. And I’m, like, 37 pounds lighter!”

Unfortunately, she's not wrong. Fresh fruits and vegetables tend to be considerably more expensive than processed foods.
