I agree on the prices at Wegman's. I used to shop there exclusively, but hardly ever go there any more. For one thing, it takes much too long to go through the store and my time seems to be less and less these days, and the other thing is the prices. But I sure do love it there!

I can do it!!

I agree with your point on Wegmans, however OUCH, the prices! Although sometimes I'm pleasantly surprised. The other thing is living on the east side of the county Wegmans isn't as conveniently located for me as a rule.

Don't know about factory-farming and how one checks on that. Beef prices are so scary high it is a rarity for us to bother with it except once in a blue moon.

Aldi's has become one of my favorite stores. I save so much there in general and the products are just as good as any place else. Their produce is generally better than Weis (but nothing beats Wegman's produce as far as freshness and variety). I never think about going to Maines any more since they have moved to Front St...it's out of my way. I used to go there when I was in JC before the flood.

I see in the flyer for Aldi's today they will have organic, grass-fed ground beef on special but not until Wednesday. Does anyone know if the cows are factory farmed or not? I'm really trying not to buy meat produced from factory-farmed animals any more...it's hard, though, because it's generally very expensive. We don't eat much red meat these days, but once in a while we do. In the summer I can easily find it at the farmers' markets.

We all know it's not easy to keep costs down when it comes to buying healthy foods.

BUT: it's not impossible either!

How about we share among ourselves any special tips or alerts to special sales which we can take advantage of to stock our fridges and pantries of healthy foods that will help us to reach our fitness goals and maintain our healthy and well lifestyle?

I'm going to start with one of my favorite foods: red bell peppers! I eat a whole red pepper every day...yum! It's the sweetest veggie I know! They are on sale this week at Maines on upper Front St. Binghamton for only 99 cents a pound! Maines is one of my go-to stores for great deals on freggies. Last week they had asparagus on for 99 cents a pound. There's ALWAYS something marked down way low that makes one's trip worthwhile.

My 2nd go-to store for low-priced freggies: Aldi's. Always great deals on fresh veggies and fruits there to help make it possible to eat healthy and stay within a budget.

Feel free to jump in and share any tips you may have for other healthy foods you like to incorporate into your daily routine and especially if there is a hot deal worth stocking up on! :-)
