Things considered when creating this list:
- Goal to make a list of foods “that pack the most nutrition for the lowest cost.”
- “Researchers based the weekly plan on the government’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (also known as food stamps) budget of $5 to $6 a day. The example meals total $35 using average food prices.”
- “Experts then screened out foods that contain a lot of chemicals, like pesticides, or whose production creates greenhouse gases.”
*Remember- junk food may be cheaper when considering price per calorie. But, healthy food is cheaper when considering price per oz and nutritional content.
