One of the excuses for not eating healthier is that it is expensive. Hey, I get it.
Whenever I shop at Whole Foods, I feel like a vacuum cleaner has been applied to my wallet. The key is to leave the $20 per pound wild shrimp alone, and start shopping smart.
I was cruising the internet when I found this great slideshow: Eating Well 12 Superfoods For $1 or Less. Kerri-Ann Jennings, M.S., R.D., put together this list with price per serving to help us see how affordable these healthy foods are.
Some of these foods will cost you more because you will have to add ingredients to make them edible, such as lentils. But, many of them can be eaten raw (apples, oranges, carrots).
I was happy to see that I have featured many of these “superfoods” on Snack Girl. I can honestly say that I eat a few from this list every week and some of them on a daily basis.
If you haven’t tried one of the foods on this list, at least you won’t spend a lot to try one.
- Canned Tuna
- Peanut Butter
What other foods are inexpensive and healthy? What is missing from the list?
