It’s not as hard as you might think to eat healthier in 2011, and it won’t cost you an arm and a leg.
We have 25 ways to save money while eating better for you in our March issue, which is on newsstands now. For instance, did you know what canned tomatoes have more of the antioxidant lycopene than fresh ones? Really! Good to know in the depths of winter! And cans of tomatoes will last up to two years as long as they’re not opened.
Fiber-rich foods are really pretty inexpensive: a small serving of peas will cost you about 25 cents AND three-quarters of a cup of peas will give you more protein than an egg. And if you don’t peel your taters, you’ll add another gram of fiber for each one you eat. And … and … there’s a lot of great info here.
Our panel of experts range from dietitians and chefs to a wellness coach, all people who care about making sure we eat well. They looked at foods by the nutrients they supply: antioxidants, calcium, fiber, protein, and omega-3s. So check it out to see how you can eat better in 2011 and not spend a lot to do it!
