The most affordable, healthy foods for adults

Maybe your New Year's resolution for 2011 was to shave off a few pounds, cholesterol points or both -- but one thing is for sure -- gyms across the country never seem quite as populated in February as early January.  Some struggle to workout; others find it difficult to eat well-balanced meals.  The old saying "you are what you eat" carries a certain weight though (no pun intended), because even if we do exercise regularly, if our diets are off kilter then results just won't come.  Dr. Mercola, author of a popular Health Newsletter, said the following about food choice:
When you consider the nutrient value of fresh versus processed-to-death denatured foods and the subsequent health consequences of each choice, it's quite clear that you can eat well and improve your health and still not spend a fortune.
PlanetGreen released a list today of 15 "superfoods" for less than $20, and accompanying recipes.  Some of the more savory choices: Quinoa With Butternut Squash, Sweet Potato Red Curry with Baby Bok Choy and Tofu and Brown Basmati Rice, and Sweet Potato Pancakes.
