Healthy Meals for $2 or Less
Tweak your shopping habits just a bit and make family meals that are easy on the budget.
Cost per serving: $1.88
Healthy benefit: Low-sodium chicken broth and no-salt-added tomatoes make this soup better for your heart than the store-bought kind.
Money-saving tip: OK, we cheated on this one. Since fresh basil accounts for more than half the cost, we substituted 1/2 teaspoon dried basil instead. Have a sunny window? Start a mini herb garden, and grow your own.
