Whole Grains
18. Whole-grain Pasta, $0.37 cents per ½ cup serving, about $3 per box:
Move over white stuff; the whole-wheat version of pasta is full of fiber, antioxidants, and protein, and may help lower risk of heart disease. Enjoy its nutty flavor with stir-fried veggies and hearty marinara sauce.

19. Brown Rice, $0.18 per ¼ cup serving, about $2 per pound
: Listen to our manifesto: Choose brown rice over white (especially at Chipotle). The whole-grain version is full o’ fiber and may cut the risk of diabetes.

20. Popcorn, $0.30 per ½ cup serving, about $1 per pound for plain kernels: 
Snack attack? Pick a low calorie snack that’s also a good source of fiber. Pop kernels in the kitchen and add spices. Movie theater popcorn ain’t got nothin’ on this!

21. Quinoa, $0.60 per ¼ cup serving, about $4 per box
: It may be hard to pronounce (that’s keen-wah), but it’s easy to prepare and packs a nutritious punch. Filled with protein and fiber, this superfood also contains nine essential amino acids our bodies can’t produce on their own.
