Do You Buy Low Calorie Items or Low Cost Items at a Grocery Store?

Low in Calorie or Low in Cost?

It is commonly known that high-calorie foods tend to cost less than lower-calorie items at the grocery store.
If you look at canned soup, meat, pasta and etc., the items that are better for you are almost always more expensive (aside from fruits and veggies). When faced with choosing between two items, one low calorie and the other low cost, I typically chose the one low in calories — though it is often a difficult decision to make when looking at my food budget. Of course I am curious about you guys — are you more inclined to go with an item based on its calories or cost?
