Healthy Eating on $7 a Day: Top Staples

Healthy Eating on $7 a Day: Top Staples

Nuts and seeds: At first, nuts and seeds—sesame, flax, almonds, walnuts and cashews and others—can seem expensive if you look at their cost per pound. But you can stay on the $7-a-Day plan if you watch for sales. For example, recently at a Whole Foods Market both almonds and cashews were on sale for $3.99 per pound. Nuts and seeds add flavor, healthy fats, protein and sometimes calcium. They’re great with all meals, including snacks. The key is to eat what you need, instead of absentmindedly stuffing a handful into your mouth. If you are hungry, a dozen almonds could be enough to keep you going until your next meal.
