5 Must-Have Healthy Foods for Under a Dollar

Each month it seems as if there’s a new trendy health food, such as pomegranate and coconut water.  Yet, many of these health foods can be hard to find and often tough on the wallet.

Here are my 5 must-have health foods that should be in everybody’s kitchen.  And, here’s the best part…they can all be found for under a dollar!

  1. Canned Salmon: high in omega-3s, a great food for your heart.
  2. Low-Sodium Canned Beans: rinse them under cold water to lower the amount of salt. Use this instead of ground beef in chili and tacos.
  3. Rutabaga: a healthier substitute for potatoes due to its high fiber intake, calcium, folate, and vitamin C.  CDC_rutabaga
  4. Butternut Squash: a great source of vitamins A, B1, B3, B6, C, and E. Roast it or puree it into a soup for delicious meals.
  5. Eggs: a great alternative to meat with its high amount of protein and lots of vitamins and minerals. One egg is only 70 calories!
