Any tips for healthy eating on a budget?

Question by gratefulearthdesigns: Any tips for healthy eating on a budget?
I am a 23 year old college student and I am looking for some good tips/recipes/ideas for healthy eating on a budget. I love fresh fruits and vegetables… and pretty much anything diet related/healthy…. that’s not the problem. My problem is that I can’t afford to pay the ridiculously high prices for healthy food! Does anyone have any ideas?
I like the ideas so far but one thing I should definaely qualify is that I live in maine… so this time of year the farmer’s market is not an option… sadly.
