Our Chairman, David H. Murdock, frequently gets asked what he eats to keep so fit at age 89. When he describes his diet of primarily fruit, vegetables, fish, nuts and beans, someone invariably complains, “Well, I can’t afford to eat like that.” Our response: You can’t afford not to eat like that. A healthy diet is the best investment when you’re on a tight budget — helping you avoid hefty health care costs of obesity, heart disease, and other conditions. That’s why we’ve created the Dole Budget Cookbook!
Our Dole Budget Cookbook goes beyond providing affordable recipes. In addition to the obvious advice — stock up on staples, buy in bulk — we recommend choosing foods that provide the most nutrition bang for the price tag. The “Thrifty 13″ list draws on both price per pound and nutrient density data.
The recipes in this book provide ideas on how to incorporate these foods into your diet. For breakfast, (yummy Banana Pancakes), lunch (delicious Fresh Fish Tacos) and dinner (satisfying Chicken with Broccoli & Parsley-Walnut Pesto). In addition to a bonanza of tasty, budget-savvy recipes, the new Dole Bud get Cookbook is packed with penny-pinching tips and helpful health hints that will keep you cooking nutritiously and judiciously for a lifetime. For a limited time we’re offering free shipping on Dole Budget Cookbook orders to make healthy cooking even more affordable.
