I advise brown rice or whole wheat tortillas with black beans &/or eggs with lettuce/onions/tomatoes & carrots & ideally avocado- a good mix of healthy proteins, fiber & phytonutrients.

To eat healthy would cost me $450 a month. I am on food stamps and have 3 kids. Frozen, prepackaged food is cheaper. How can I eat healthy on a budget?
Use veggies: While fresh and organic vegetables are best, frozen vegetables are almost as good. There are also plenty of canned foods like beans that have good nutritional value. Meats are important, but our bodies only need a few ounces per day. Avoid starchy foods like breads and pastas. Even though they're cheap, more than a couple of small servings a day is bad for a person over time. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Healthy weight loss: When losing weight you don't "burn body fat" preferentially over muscle. As such, don't waste time or money on products, books, or foods that promise to do so. Also, a 15 pound weight loss over 4 weeks can be achieved but may make you sick--strive instead for a realistic goal of 1-2 pounds/week. Dehydration is not meaningful loss. Healthy weight loss mean small portions, low calories, exercise. ...Read more
