Most people are probably aware of superfoods nowadays, although they may not realize how easy it is to add superfoods that cost less than $1 to their diets.

Superfoods are not all expensive and obscure;

in fact, many of them may be things you eat already โ€“ but if you know how great they are, you can try to eat more!

Here are 9 yummy superfoods that cost less than $1.

1. Cabbage

Cabbage

One of the best superfoods that cost less than $1 is the humble cabbage.

As well as being packed full of vitamins C and K, fiber and antioxidants, cruciferous vegetables like cabbage are linked to lower cancer rates.

Cabbage is also very low in calories and you can get 3-4 portions for your $1.

2. Oranges

Oranges

Just one orange can provide you with all the vitamin C you need for a whole day, as well as plenty of fiber, water and beta-carotene to keep your eyes healthy.

Theyโ€™re also tasty and low in calories.

Do be aware that while orange juice will provide you with the vitamin C you wonโ€™t get the fiber, so eat an orange instead if you can.

3. Tea

Tea

It may not technically be a food, but tea (both black and green) is full of antioxidants, and can cut your risk of a heart attack in half.

Green tea is even better for you, but as long as you donโ€™t fill it with sugar and only use low-fat milk, black tea is a superfood too.

4. Lentils

Lentils

Lentils are incredibly low-cost, versatile and easy to cook, but the high levels of fiber and protein also make them great for your heart.

Theyโ€™re also one of the cheapest superfoods going.

5. Peanut Butter

Peanut Butter

You may not expect to see peanut butter on a list of superfoods, although you probably know that nuts (in reasonable quantities) are very good for you.

If you buy natural peanut butter (made with just peanuts and very little or no salt), you get the health benefits of pricier nut products for a much lower price.
