i've been getting discouraged lately by the price of fruits and vegetables. seriously it's cheaper to eat at mcdonalds every night than it is to cook a healthy meal. i make it a point to give the kids five servings of fruits and vegetables a day, which is fairly easy because they eat ANYTHING. BUT - if you have never went grocery shopping in hawaii, your in for a rude awakening. in hawaii milk will run you from $7-9.50 a gallon. broccoli $3.99lb, bread $3.50 (store brand) $4.99 (good bread), pepper (green, yellow, red) $6.99lb - scary right.
i remembered to stop by the farmers market this morning to pick up a few things...i am going to be persistent about going every week...because of the massive amount of money i saved.
we purchased Bok choy * 5 tomatoes * long green beans * green beans * 5 eggplant * ong choy* for $10.50!!! that's CRAZY people!!
