Wholesome and Economical Groceries

This is what our shopping cart looks like these days.  The cashier thought it must be some sort of project or experiment; she said people don't usually buy that much produce.  Laughing, I told her this is just what we are eatting.  The boys picked out lots of fruit, but buried in the back are potatoes, lettuce, spinach, radishes, onion, etc.  

Does it cost more?  We're still trying to decide.  Organic does raise the price, but all in all for the same amount of money we would have paid for a case of Mountain Dew we can now buy a fresh pineapple. This particular trip was under $100 at Price Chopper and my shopping cart was overflowing with a variety of tasty foods.  

Want to include more produce for your family?  Lay it out with a variety of colors like the fruit bowl below and you'll entice people to munch healthy things before they even know it.
