It’s a common misconception that eating a clean healthy diet is expensive and less than budget-friendly for the majority. Superfoods often get roped into the “expensive” category, alongside organic. And to be fair, some superfoods do come at a higher price point due to sourcing, purity, and exceptional quality. However, there are plenty of superfoods more budget-friendly than you might think. In fact, some superfoods can stretch your dollar quite far when consumed in proper proportions. The thing to remember about superfoods is that they pack quite a nutritious punch, and a little bit goes a long way. They are nutritionally robust with increased bioavailability and the nutrients are readily absorbed and used by your body. You don’t need to consume them in high amounts to reap the benefits.
We understand it can be challenging to select which superfoods to spend your hard-earned dollars on, especially if you’re on a tight budget. But we’re glad you’re doing your research, and we’d like to offer our top five budget-friendly superfoods.
