7 Healthy Foods That All Cost Less Than $1

  7 Healthy Foods That All Cost Less Than $1 It’s a common complaint: Healthy food is so expensive. While there’s no question you can spend a ton on good-for-you fare, the fact is, there are plenty of ways to save a bundle and still eat well. Here are seven delicious and nutritious foods you can enjoy for less than a dollar per serving. PB has taken a backseat in recent years to more glamorous spreads made from almonds, cashews, sunflower seeds and more. And while variety is great, classic peanut butter is hard to beat when it comes to inexpensive-yet-nutritious foods. Sixteen-ounce jars run from around $2.50 to $6 and beyond, with organic and flavored varieties at the pricier end of the spectrum. But even at $6 per jar, one serving (2 Tbsp.

For many, pumpkin spice goodies signal fall and all the joy that comes with it: autumn leaves, cool air and cute boots. For the rest of us (the realists), it’s the death of summer . We’re just a month and a half into this season (we’ve only worn our swimsuits once!) and the powers that be are already forcing fall down our throats with their pumpkin spice things. The 12-ounce bags promise “the flavors of fresh baked pumpkin pie” — so you can just toss aside that summery strawberry shortcake you’re gorging on.

The pumpkin spice latte was so unlike any other coffee drinks at that time, that people couldn’t get enough. So the PSL has blown up to become Starbucks’ most popular seasonal drink of all time, with more than 200 million sold in its first decade on the menu. What’s more, back-to-school season in late August and early September gets many adults nostalgic and excited for autumn traditions, and the scents and flavors that bring those memories back. And retailers are only happy to entice consumers with every version of pumpkin spice product under the sun, from coffee to deodorant to Spam.

For many, pumpkin spice goodies signal fall and all the joy that comes with it: autumn leaves, cool air and cute boots. For the rest of us (the realists), it's the death of summer.

We're just a month and a half into this season (we've only worn our swimsuits once!) and the powers that be are already forcing fall down our throats with their pumpkin spice things.

While they found companies were offering 50 percent more pumpkin spiced products than the previous year, sales climbed just 21 percent.

But according to recent data from Square Analytics, pumpkin spice food-related sales start to decline as early as November. Guess we’ve already moved onto other holiday drinks, like the Holiday Spice Flat White at Starbucks. Sorry , PSL. We still love you. Square found that sales of pumpkin and pumpkin spice -related items peak in October and decline a whopping 30% in November. Pumpkin flavor and pumpkin spice season is mainly from September to November, picking up a latte steam in August.

World Market isn't the only perpetrator ushering in fall way too soon. Cheerios pumpkin spice flavored cereal, Dannon's Light & Fit Pumpkin Pie Greek yogurt and Ghirardelli's pumpkin spice caramel-filled chocolates were spotted in stores at the end of July. While Starbucks has yet to announce the release date for the mother of all pumpkin spice things, Pumpkin Spice Lattes, its pumpkin spice-flavored ground coffee and K-cups are already in grocery stores.

Starbucks has been debuting the Pumpkin Spice Latte around Labor Day since 2003, selling over 200 million cups of the game-changing drink since. But the coffee chain has been known to rile up the PSL cult by offering opportunities for fans to get the drink early, usually the last week of August.

In the last few years, however, pumpkin spice demand has reached a fever pitch. Data from Nielsen shows that total sales of pumpkin-flavored foods in the U.S. grew almost 80 percent between 2011 and 2015, to over $360 million in 2015.

If everyone is trying to one-up the competition by releasing their pumpkin spice things early, why not just serve PSLs and all their packaged food friends all year round? Can't we satisfy the hordes of gourd fans without declaring a war on summer?

"It is the signal of fall for customers," a Starbucks spokesperson told FastCompany when they posed that very question. "The spicy essence-that signals fall has arrived for them."

The truth is, as FastCompany points out, that the perceived limited availability of pumpkin spice things is what helps drive the frenzy and contributes to people buying more and more of them.

Summer officially began on June 21 and won't end until September 22. But practically speaking, things are moving fast. Exhibit A: World Market launched its pumpkin spice blend ground coffee on Monday, becoming the first major retailer of the season to advertise a new fall-flavored treat, according to It gets worse. Delish pointed out that people have been posting on Instagram for days about finding pumpkin spice foods already sitting on store shelves.

The Great Pumpkin-Pie Conspiracy .
There’s a decent chance, if I may blow your mind for a moment, that your favorite pumpkin-pie recipe does not contain any actual pumpkin—at least, not the way you think. Scoop that autumnal goop out of a can, even one labeled “100 percent pure pumpkin,” and you just may be living a delicious lie.

And does it still count as a pumpkin?Debating canned-pumpkin labels is becoming something of a perennial exercise.
