1. Sweet Potatoes
Sweet potatoes are an incredible food; they’re deliciously sweet, highly affordable, and packed with health benefits. Sweet potatoes are great sources of fiber, the antioxidants beta-carotene and vitamin C, iron, potassium (more than bananas!), magnesium, and vitamin B6 which lowers blood pressure levels and provides nervous system health benefits.
2. Berries (Especially Frozen)
All varieties of berries are nutrient-dense and can be included in your diet no matter your budget. Buying frozen berries will save you the most money per serving, and don’t worry about frozen berries not being as healthy as fresh varieties; frozen berries are frozen at peak harvest, just like veggies, and retain more nutrition as a result.
3. Broccoli (Especially Frozen)
If you’re on a budget, broccoli is one food that you definitely want to include in your diet to increase your nutrition.
Apples are one of the healthiest foods you can eat and they’re available all year round. While you should opt to buy organic apples whenever possible (non-organic apples contain one of the highest concentrations of pesticides compared to other fruits), that doesn’t mean you have to avoid apples if you can’t afford organic.
5. Green Tea
Green tea is very affordable and beneficial for your health. Green tea is one of the most well-studied, health-protective food/beverages you can enjoy for just pennies per serving, and it even helps combat inflammation, and promote alkalinity. READ FULL STORY AT ONE GREEN PLANET.
