Despite USDA reviews, anecdotal evidence, and plenty of articles from magazines and websites like ours, there’s still this prevailing, problematic idea that eating healthy has to be expensive and difficult. But that’s just not the case. Even in fall and winter, when fresh produce may seem a little more difficult to come by, nutrient-rich, seasonal superfoods are still affordable and available, even for tight budgets and those in low-access neighborhoods.
If you’ve got even a basic grocery store nearby, these tasty, easy-to-prepare, and, often, shelf-stable superfoods are the perfect resources to stock up the larder on the cheap. If you’re looking to pinch some pennies (and stash some quick meal ideas for leaner months), add these ingredients to your grocery list immediately.
