  • I haven't seen prices this low in Louisiana since the 80's. Where are they shopping? All produce is very expensive now. And chicken, eggs & milk have all gone up. There is no more cheap food.
  • I will grant you that these are healthy choices. However, the pricing should be updated as they are over a year old according to the notation/ footnote. I would also like to know what region they used because here in LV the prices, even on sale, don't come close to those quoted...especially the berries and nuts.

    Also. I take issue with the word "cheap." Inexpensive sounds better, even though in this case that doesn't apply either.
  • If these foods aren't part of your specific "diet plan", then why post? Spark does not follow any particular "diet". Also, prices will change with time, yet these items are still a good buy. Hard to believe all the negative comments. Personally, I'm thankful for this article.

    Huh? Healthy foods? SALMON, EGGS, CHICKEN, MILK????
    I don't believe that these are healthy foods... Read 'Eat to Live' by dr. Joel Fuhrman. Animal products are an important factor in getting cancer, as I understand it.

    You are not helping me. I need a list of low protein foods! I will be going away in August & Sept and want to know what I can order in restaurants. I do NOT need to lose weight, I just need low protein foods for three months. PLEASE send me a list!!!
    Thank you.

    Like some below me have stated, these prices need to be updated. Also do realize that you have customers from across the world and so prices vary from region to region.
  • I can see how this is geared towards the States, unfortunately here in Malawi (Africa) a lot of the items on the list are super expensive! I wish there was a list for those living outside of the States.
  • as others have said, the prices quoted do not reflect what I find in the NY/NJ metro area as of 7/2014 but the items listed are still valid for creating a shopping list of good buys. For my money, nothing beats frozen veggies for economical/no waste food. I just wish fruits were more reasonable. $1 an orange...who would have thought that day would come
  • That price for Almonds is quite honestly reflective of what we pay in the Midwest, granted this article is a bit outdated. Tonight's news showed that egg prices, beef, and other grocery items have gone up in the last month...so yes, this article's prices could use an update!!
  • I cannot help but wonder where they are coming up with these prices. It certainly doesn't reflect Northern California, and that is the heart of almond country. I can't even get that price at a pick your own or a farm stand.

    I can't take this article seriously with the title including the word cheap and many of the items are generally not considered even inexpensive, let alone cheap. Almonds for one are very expensive even when you get them on sale and clearance because they've expired.... still expensive.

    The article should really be updated, these prices haven't been seen in this area for a very long time...they don't even reflect "sale" prices
  • This is obviously a very old pricing list. Las Vegas prices font come close to these lows.

    Garlic has 10 servings per head? Not the way I use it. I get 1 to 2 servings per head. Of course it might explain why I have so few friends. ;-)
  • Currently I'm living in Japan and fruits and veg are sometimes DOUBLE that of meat products! Eating healthy here is VERY hard on your pocket O.o
