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That price for Almonds is quite honestly reflective of what we pay in the Midwest, granted this article is a bit outdated.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

these or price do not match up Apples are outrageous. Lets face it fresh freggies are expensive. I will plant a garden this year. Please do not mention almonds or nuts period. EXPENSIVE. Dried beans and oat are inexpensive LOL!

I really wish these prices were close to where I live. A lot of the fruits and veggies are similar, but the rest are way off. On a good day I pay $20 for 3-4lbs of chicken breasts, and $5/4L of milk. Eggs run anywhere from $3-6/dozen.

Most of the prices are pretty close for my area. Food prices vary by location season etc, I think the thing is to see the prices of the healthier items in relation to the not so healthy.

I used to think that eating healthy was more expensive but I've found it's not, it just takes a lot more time, effort and planning. And can be more difficult to do for just one or two people as cheaper bulk veggies and such may go to waste before used if not careful.
