Instant oats =/= instant oatmeal. But for a far better way to eat them, go steel-cut instead. You can get them in bulk at natural food stores and some regular grocery stores. They take a long time but you can cook them in a large batch once a week, and refrigerate them. Add a bit of milk or water, microwave, and stir. They're better for you and have a far better texture and flavor.
I think a better overall quiz question would be, can you AFFORD the healthy food in your grocery store? I for one cannot afford to load a cart up with fresh fruits and veggies very often. With apples at $3+ per pound and few bulk varieties (Red and Gold Delicious, Fuji, and the reviled Gala), peppers and so on at a likewise ridiculous rate, I could blow my entire food budget before getting anywhere else in the store. Farmer's markets here are NOT a cheaper option, they're just as or sometimes more expensive, and organic markets and co-ops tend to be likewise (or have produce that goes bad the next day).
I do garden during the summer, but when nature gives you a bad year...
