As much as we try to eat healthfully and buy organic and nutritious food, it can get expensive. That’s why I was happy to see an article titled “Eat Well, Eat Cheap” in the March issue of Better Nutrition magazine — a freebie publication that’s probably in your local health-food store. I’m usually cynically suspicious about this magazine — Will the SuperEnergy Natural Organic Green X48 multi-vitamins really help me lose weight, sleep all night and beat every disease that comes my way? — but this article actually was objectively helpful. It’s not on the Web site, http://www.betternutrition.com/ yet (the site’s getting a makeover and will be updated early this spring, so the cover image here is March 2008 instead of the newest magazine that’s out right now), so grab a copy of the March issue if you find it. And what are some healthy and nutritious foods you can include in an even stretched-to-the-limit food budget? Author Lisa Turner details 15, such as eggs, cabbage, sweet potatoes, sardines, canned tomatoes and oats. This issue also has a great recipe for a St. Patrick’s Day potato appetizer that even people who turn up their noses at “health food” will gobble up: Top roasted red-potato slices with a feta-olive oil-fresh basil mixture and garnish with a parsley leaf. Yummy and green!
Well, now I have to go hunting for this magazine. But first I’ll check the out the website to see if they offer a way to get it via mail/e-mail.
Thanks for the info.
I’ve never seen this at my store but like you I tend to pass these things by. Could you email the recipe to me?
Oh sounds like a good recipe, good ideas and great magazine! Thanks for the tip!
I’ll be happy to send the recipe and the list of the 15 affordable organic foods to anybody who wants it. Michele — it’s on the way!
