For protein you can have eggs, or any pulses (various types of beans and peas) in place of meat and fish.
Then eat seasonal and/or local fruit and vegetables, which are a lot cheaper than out-of-season stuff, where you are having to pay extra for transport.
If there are any local farmer markets around your area, you can usually purchase cheaper fruits and vegetables than from your local grocery stores.
Healthy eating tips in low budget means, you have to cultivate vegetables , fruits and cook it by yourself and eat it.
Lentils are high in protein and one of the least expensive foods. Also, if you go to the farmer's markers towards closing time they will usually give you a deal on produce, so they do not have to pack it up and bring it back with them.
Cook at home! Dry beans and lentils are a great protein, brown rice is your whole grain carb, milk, and in season produce, preferably local. Doesn't get much cheaper and healthier than that.
It's easier than you think, you just have to plan and shop around. Walmart surprisingly has great food selection and so does Target. Alot of times some foods are cheaper there than at a regular grocery store. Buy foods that are rich in flavor. Stay away from processed foods.
Take blackstrap molasses daily. It's a little-known health supplement that contains a huge number of trace minerals (such as magnesium, copper, iron, potassium, etc.). Best of all, it's extremely cheap to buy in most countries.
The men in my family use crock pots. They cook soup, stew, roast, chile, beans etc. on Sunday or Monday and eat from that all week. I personally like more variety. I add salads and just about any kind of veggie in season. Taking a lunch to work is very is very economical. Don't buy drinks when you go out to eat unless water costs the same as every other kind of drink offered.
When all else fails Taco Bell.
Farmers market. You can get all the vegetables you need at 1/2 the cost of a store, also see if youe town has a damaged fight store if so you can get your meat and dairy there very cheap and it is still good.
