What $40 of Healthful Food Looks Like

I have to admit, this "living healthy" thing I got going on this year isn't easy on the pocketbook -- I can't wait until I can start growing stuff (and participating in the local CSA) because this is ridiculous.

Behold -- $40 of food:

I admit to splurging on the rotisserie chicken (I love them -- I'm considering buying a machine to do them myself), but nothing else. Even the sliced mushrooms were the same price per pound as the unsliced ones.

So: apples, celery, carrots, peppers, mushrooms, an onion, cabbage and lettuce chicken and cottage cheese.

Forty Dollars.

Makes me crazy...



  1. Were those organic products? If not, I imagine the price would have been higher.

  2. Not organic -- those were 2 - 3 times as much. They ARE however non-imported.
