Do you want to eat healthier without putting a major dent in your wallet? Dollar stores may surprise you. They have a wide variety of healthy foods for a dollar or less. Here is what you can expect to find at your local dollar store:
There’s no real surprise that vegetables are important to any healthy diet. They are rich in nutrients and low in calories and fat, making them the ideal food. Vegetables are high in six key nutrients: fiber, folate, potassium, vitamin A, vitamin C, and iron.
• Mini Cucumbers
• Frozen Vegetables
Like vegetables, fruit is nutrient dense and light on fat and calories. Its sweetness also makes it a great healthy snack. Fruit is the highest source of potassium which may be beneficial for blood pressure.
• Dried Fruit
• Frozen Fruit
We use protein to make everything from muscles and skin to hormones and neurotransmitters. It is also much denser than fruit or vegetables, keeping you fuller longer. As an added bonus, animal protein is the only sufficient food source of vitamin B12 which is vital to the nervous system and brain.
• Frozen Chicken
• Pork Loins
• Canned Tuna
• Canned and Dried Beans
