Ten Cheap Health Foods

There are so many ways to eat healthfully without breaking the bank. I hope you can find something that you can use in the following ten items.

  • 10. Organic eggs – Eggs have gotten a bad rap from medicine and diet dictocrats for the last forty years because they say the cholesterol from eggs causes cholesterol in your blood vessels and hence heart disease. This is an out-and-out lie. There has never been one study or one ounce of evidence that eating any type of cholesterol causes cholesterol.

Eggs can be an inexpensive health food but even organic store eggs can be unhealthy if you are not careful to buy best cage-free, free-range, fresh eggs. Most store bought eggs are 3 to 6 months old even if they are organic. The best solution besides organic free- range eggs is to find a person who raises eggs in the city or country. It is quite the rage to have chickens in communities. They are a great source of protein.

  • 9. Organic plain yogurt without sugar – This is true and this may be the best you can get yogurt, but making your own yogurt from raw milk is the healthiest way to get beneficial bacteria (contact www.westonaprice.org website). Adding fresh local organic fruits can add many antioxidants for better health.
  • 8. Seeds – A great way to add nutrition and be cheap at the same time. There are all kinds of seeds and nuts that are healthy, but avoid the ones done in oil (usually vegetable, hence trans fats) and salt. Walnuts are wonderful because of the healthy omega. Almonds are fine, but the California Almond board wants to use radiation on all of their nuts. (This is in court as I write this.) Always check sources of all foods before you eat anything.
  • 7. Berries – These are loaded with antioxidants and can be very healthy if they are organic. Unfortunately, most fruits and vegetables are not raised on healthy soil and are sprayed with pesticides. Frozen berries can be fine if the source is clean.
  • 6. Buckwheat – This is a seed, not a grain, and quite healthy if grown on healthy soil. It is not wheat and, in fact, it is a good substitute for those who are sensitive to wheat products. You can make a cereal/porridge out of buckwheat. It has the ability to stabilize blood sugar. It is similar to rice and, not being a grain, is very beneficial.
  • 5. Coconut milk – This can be a cheap substitute for all the processed milk in our grocery stores that is so unhealthy. This is a good source of healthy saturated fats and protein. It is natural and the trees cannot be destroyed and damaged by corporate industrialized food companies. If you can’t buy raw milk, then use this as a substitute in your favorite recipes.
  • 4. Spinach – Is a great vegetable that can be cooked with scrambled eggs and in other healthful ways. It should be organic and now the new worry is that the government is allowing spinach and lettuce to be irradiated to kill bacteria from sloppy, dirty farms and poor handling companies. It can also be eaten raw in salads.
  • 3. Garlic – This certainly is a stinky food but the health benefits are enormous. It helps to cleanse the body and detoxify many of our pollutants in the food, water and air. It  has a high sulphur content to help with joints. Do it raw if you can, otherwise cook with it regularly.
  • 2. Wild rice – which is not  rice but actually a grass. This is a great food and with real butter, can build your health. If you can’t find real raw butter, then coconut oil is a great substitute for improving your health, particularly your immune system. Wild rice is not like wheat that creates many allergies and it will also help your blood sugar levels.
  • 1. Lentils – These are part of the legume family. They have good protein and lots of fiber. They taste great, but they take on the flavor of whatever you are cooking with them. They will do well with ham, vegetables, chicken stock, mushroom stock or whatever you want to cook with them.

I certainly have not mentioned everything, but these ten are good starters. I did not mention lima beans, pinto beans or soup beans, and with spring coming on, we will have tomatoes soon that can be grown cheaply, even on a patio.

Always be careful what you use for seasoning, as so many condiments have radiation used on them today, and so many prepared seasonings have MSG, hydrolyzed vegetable protein and large amounts of salt.

Remember that salt is only bad when it is used excessively and when it is only sodium chloride, without seventy two trace minerals like the salt from Redmond minerals in Redmond, Utah.
