Nutrition, On the Cheap

Stretch your budget with vegetables. Dried beans cost just pennies per serving. A vegetable omelet with two eggs costs about 50 cents — half the price of one item on a fast-food dollar menu.

Seek frozen bargains. Fresh cherries can cost $8 or more per pound. But frozen, unsweetened fruit has the same nutritional punch for much less money. Use them in smoothies, cooking, mixing with other fruit or even for eating slightly thawed. 

frozen grapes or what have you are perfect on a hot summer evening.  yum!
