Nutrient dense foods are the best choices you can make when trying to eat healthily. Nutrient dense is a term that refers to how rich in nutrients something is compared to the amount of calories that it contains. To illustrate: a small cookie and a banana may have the same amount of calories. However, the banana is more nutrient dense because for the same amount of calories you also get a lot more vitamins and minerals than the cookie, such as potassium, B vitamins, vitamin C, selenium and magnesium.. Typically, foods that are as close to all natural as possible, with minimal processing are the more nutrient dense foods.
A theme in a number of the budget friendly recipes is the use of leftovers. Leftovers are a great help for eating on a budget. Don’t like the term leftovers? Call it “planned extras”. Big batch cooking is easier on the budget than making many smaller meals. And a planned extra can be changed up a bit the next day by adding different seasonings or vegetables or cooking it in a different way. Tiffany’s blog Don’t Waste The Crumbs is not just a food blog.
