Eating healthy is challenge for anyone on a tight budget. Or, is it? When you consider the value of the food in terms of nutrients, the servings it provides, and for how long it actually keeps you full … you may want to reconsider paying for those cheaper dollar-menu fast-food type items that will have you quickly going back for more. And, instead spend a few extra dollars on the healthier alternatives that will keep you fuller longer, while you’re reaping the benefits of of their nutrition.
For example, some delicious nutrient-dense foods include:
Frozen or Fresh Broccoli
Flax or Chia Seeds
If you keep these 10 foods stocked at all times, you can turn them into a variety of meals to keep your tummy full and your wallet happy. Not only that, they’re great for juicing, and also easy to prep for snacks on the go.
