Healthy Eating on $7 a Day: Top Staples

Healthy Eating on $7 a Day: Top Staples

Beans and tofu: When possible, look for organic bulk dried beans and tofu. Beans and tofu are an excellent source of protein, especially when you’re eating on a budget. Bulk beans are less expensive than canned beans. Depending on the type, bulk beans can be cheap as 30 cents a cup. You need to learn about proper soaking and cooking—ask supermarket bulk-section managers for tips. In any case, the plus side (along with the savings) is that one pot of cooked beans—say, Tuscan white beans—goes a long way, and can be part of different meals (pasta, soups, tortilla wraps, dips and more).
