I stumbled across this list of 20 Healthy Foods for Under $1 and was glad to see some of my favorites on the list:

1. Oats
2. Eggs
3. Kale
4. Potatoes
5. Apples
6. Nuts
7. Bananas
8. Garbanzo Beans
9. Broccoli
10. Watermelon
11. Wild Rice
12. Beets
13. Butternut Squash
14. Whole Grain Pasta
15. Sardines
16. Spinach
17. Tofu
18. Lowfat Milk
19. Pumpkin Seeds
20. Coffee

My day usually starts with a cup of coffee and while breakfast is usually reserved for weekends, oatmeal and eggs are regulars on the menu. The greens like kale, spinach and beets are returnees in our garden, so we have them almost every week at their summer peak. The same thing goes with squash. In our garden, we have more than just butternut squash, we also have acorn, zucchini and summer squash. And yeah, when you get it from your backyard, your cost goes down even more.
