So I was stumbling around looking for cheap health guides and how to grocery shop on a budget, and found this neat article on Eating Healthily for ONLY $3 a day, written by an online blogger. All of his daily meals provided 2000 calories of nutrition and met daily recommendations for percentages of fats, protein, and carbohydrates as well as various vitamins and minerals.
Here was his daily meal breakdown:
• 3 cups cooked brown rice ($0.53)
• 2 cups cooked pinto beans ($0.23)
• 2 stalks cooked broccoli (360g) ($1.06)
• 1 baked sweet potato (180g) ($0.40)
• 1 tablespoon olive oil ($0.18)
• 1/2 cup sunflower seeds, shelled ($0.22)
• 2 cups nonfat milk ($0.37)
And he ended up only spending $2.99/day. TIP: He bought the majority of the items in bulk, as opposed to small amounts at a time. Granted, it’s not the most exciting bunch of foods, but you can’t deny the nutrition for value ratio here. I thought it was an interesting read! Really shows that there are options out there.
