Eggs are loaded with vitamins and protein, and cost around a dollar a dozen.
But won't eggs jack your cholesterol to the moon and lead to your untimely death? No. While eggs take a bad rap for hurting your cholesterol levels, they are not tied to blood cholesterol.
And eggs aren't just for breakfast. Nowhere does it say that you can't scramble up a bunch for dinner.
No. 2: Buy frozen fruits, vegetables
No one will dispute that fruits and vegetables are good for you.
Fruits and vegetables provide you with tons of vitamin, minerals and fiber. And while fresh fruits and vegetables are certainly visually appealing -- and absolutely worth your time and money to buy -- sometimes you're better off buying frozen.
Nutritionally speaking, there is no discernible difference between fresh and frozen. But it isn't just the price of a bag of frozen blueberries versus a pint of fresh where you see the savings.
In addition to upfront cost, frozen takes less time to prepare (they're already cut and washed), you won't waste money if they aren't eaten before they go bad and you can buy them in bulk in keep them in your freezer.
