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.

This is a VERY old article! I earned my park points for it in 2008! So it is at least that old! An update using current prices would be nice, esp. since this article was just featured in an e-mail!

Wow. I haven't seen a dozen eggs for $1.99 in ages! We usually pay somewhere around $3.29 for a dozen...but then again we live in Silicon Valley where everything is over priced. lol

There is a footnote at the end of the article that says where the prices are from. Things are a bit spendier here, but the overall idea of which items are a better value still holds.
