Ranking foods by antioxidants per dollar spent.
But three even better bargains to go.
Winning the bronze for best bargain: Cloves. And the Silver to cinnamon. Wait until you hear the gold, though. It’s going to blow your mind. Busting off the charts as the number one antioxidant bargain in the world? Purple cabbage--red cabbage. Cheap as dirt, like 30 cents a pound, and packed with antioxidants—look at that color. And it lasts forever. Next time you go shopping, buy a red cabbage, put it in the crisper, and slice off shreds to put in as many things as you can thing of—great crunch for salad, throw into soups, stir-fries, whatever. And then when you run out you go buy another red cabbage. And if I’m ever over at your house, don’t think I won’t check the crisper… In terms of eating healthy on a budget red cabbage cannot be beat by any food on the planet Earth. Bar none. Period. Done.
