Thanks for sharing
Grains are out for me, not all but most of them. Have trouble with wheat and corn.
Great ideals. Thanks for sharing.
Good information and advice.
Of course prices vary depending on your location and the season but savvy shoppers can find even better prices on some items. I like visiting the farmers market near closing time! Sellers don’t want to take unsold items back home! Or offer to buy the ugly bruised produce and negotiate! Fun to find deals!
Prices in Las Vegas are quite a bit higher since all of our veggies and fruits are shipped in but I buy the fresh frozen variety of many items like, berries, strawberry/bana combo, collards, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, etc. and can usually eat healthfully from week to week.
I can't find these foods at this price in Florida, where they grow so many fruits & veggies. I about have a fit every time I shop. But I guess everything is relative.
2018 and many of these foods I buy cheaper than shown in this article. Try to buy when on sale!
When s the last text they shopped? This list needs to be updated. Some of the items can be purchased cheaply, but almonds?
Healthy foods yes, cheap, not really. But inflation and the need to transport foods a long distance.
Interesting article but since it was written ten years ago prices in our area are double or more for most of the articles listed. Time to update some of these articles.
These prices really need an update, the prices are ten years old.

Prices vary a lot regionally and by store but you get the idea. These are economical foods with a lot of nutritional bang for the buck.
