List Of Superfoods You Can Easily Afford On A Budget
Sweet potatoes are about to really hit their stride for the season, which means you can get them at any farmer’s market or produce stand, and pretty much be assured that they’ll be tasty. They’re also packed with necessary nutrients, low in fat, and pretty much an ideal starch. Roast them, bake them, grill them, bake with them, turn them into patties, hell, even turn them into oven fries. The possibilities are endless–and they’re pennies apiece.
Lots of Americans skip right by purple cabbage at the grocery store or produce stand because, well, it seems kind of dull. But shredded cabbage is a great way to add potassium, vitamin A, and fiber to your family’s diet. Shred it for salads and sandwiches, sautee it as a side dish, or sneak it into soups and stews for added benefits.
Canned salmon Slide
Sustainable, omega-3-filled salmon isn’t just for expensive caesar salads in fancy restaurants. The canned kind has gotten the Seafood Watch seal of approval, and can be used in a variety of ways. It’s a little more expensive than tuna, but it’s worth it for the extra nutrients, lower mercury levels, and eco-friendliness.
In addition to being less expensive, it’s also easier to use than the frozen or fresh variety. Add it to a salad, sandwich, or noodle casserole to add brain-boosting good fats. Get four more of these budget superfoods here.
