    The most nutritional foods, as well as being the least expensive foods you can buy at the grocery store, are beans and lentils.

    I think the least expensive, but most nutritional food that you can buy at the grocery store would be a bag of apples!

    Peanut butter is what comes to mind because you don't need too much of it to fill you up.

    Whatever produce is in its peak season. Usually if t's in season it's cheaper. Plus peak fresh produce is at its most nutritional. Legumes and beans are also great options.

    Kale, spinach, chard, apples, sweet potatoes, carrots, dried beans of any kind, split peas, and dried lentils.

    I think foods that fill you up and stick to your ribs longer are the best buy, such as beans, lentils, potatoes, bananas.

    Dried beans, dried split green and yellow peas, barley, oats, brown rice. You can a variety of foods, soups, stews, veggie burgers and bread using these ingredients or combining them with other ingredients you may have on hand.

    Jokingly I would say seeds so you can grow your own veggies free of chemicals.

    Seriously, I think dried goods like black beans and brown rice are really inexpensive and they have good nutrition to offer, but you do have to take the time to cook them.

    What a great question and a lot of great answers. I agree that yams, seasonal produce, and dry legumes and pulses are nutritious and relatively inexpensive.

    here in the Philippines the most cheapest but very nutritious you can buy is horse radish tree leaves.Young leaves are a rich source of calcium, iron, phosphorus and vitamins A, B and C. High in HDL (high density lipoproteins); a source of amino acids, omega oils, antioxidants. Young fruit yield a high amount of protein and phosphorus, a fair source of calcium and iron, also rich in potassium.

    I like bananas, broccoli and carrots for my personal choices.

    A little advise on your typing style used in your question. Working with a dyslexic friend I confirmed that people read word shapes and that capitalizing all the words or alternating between upper and lowercase is very hard to read as well as all caps. You might reconsider your "cool" approach to a long question . Billboards are only 7 words or less for a reason so restrict all caps to that and use regular sentence structure for anything longer.

    A good nutritional selection would be dried beans and lentils, bulk apples (peeled), green tea, chicken broth in cartons, eggs, carrots, quinoa, and sweet potatoes in addition to growing your own leafy greens , berries, garlic. onions, and herbs and catching some fresh water fish every now and then.

    One of my favorite nutritional foods is the "Avocado" or as a I call it the "Super Fruit" as it has more nutritional value than any other fruit or vegetable.  You can buy Avocado for less than a dollar at most grocery stores. I myself  use them to make health smoothies as well as using some to make a face mask paste with some honey.  This is what I call getting multi-uses out of one product;  I had a avocado face mask cleanse today- my skin feels so refreshed after it!

    I would say fruit, vegetables and pasta are good value if you are on a budget.

    Tofu is fairly inexpensive.  If you go to Trader Joes, you can get a block of Tofu for under $3.00 and it has a lot of protein.  In addition, a bag of carrots is under $2. Pinto beans, lentils are all inexpensive

    Love all of the answers containing beans, lentils and rice.

    I would add to that the following:  whole wheat pasta, whole wheat bread, black beans, brown rice and any other whole grain foods.  Lots of great carbohydrates, protein and fiber in these inexpensive foods.
