This article should be updated with prices and give a range. What you pay in one part of the country, you won't pay in another part of the country. Also what you pay in rural areas can vary from metro areas. I live in rural Minnesota and buying many/most of these items even at Walmart isn't this cheap.

All but 2 of them are on my regular grocery list, especially when they are on sale. Now that GMO salmon has been approved for sale in the USA I will be avoiding that. With a certain political party sponsoring a bill to forbid labeling GMOs, it will even harder to eat natural. I choose to vote with my pocketbook and economize elsewhere.

Yeah this is not evenly remotely helpful for Canadians- eggs close to 3 bucks a dozen and a pack of four chicken breasts runs over 20-25 dollars.

How much do Doritos cost per pound? ($4 a pound) Or snicker bars? ($5 a pound) Or McD's chicken nuggets ($13 a ponnd). Even if you double the prices in his article, it is still much cheaper to eat healthy.

I think prices have gone up since this was written! I know eggs cost more than that, and so does the chicken breasts we buy!

Fast, fresh, local all these words apply to getting the lowest cost for healthier foods. I love canned beans and they can taste as fresh as the dried ones that take hours to cook.

JIMINYC, how I miss HEB, especially the Central Market. I would love to have one here in MS.
One way I save is to watch when meats are being put on sale right before the expiration date. I buy family packs of chicken legs, thighs, and breasts, open them and divide them up into single meal freezer bags. It's a great way to have something on hand that's easy to defrost and cook.
Prices are always changing, and I think we all have to be very flexible in shopping and menu planning.

The point is these healthy foods are cheapER. However, in Texas many of these prices can be had today, some for less. Also check Amazon some of their prices for food are good. My local HEB food store has canned salmon 14.75 oz. for $2.62. Black beans as low as 72 cents. Eggs are higher now and some of the other items but really the exact price is not the point of the story.

While I agree that these prices are off, did anyone bother to read the last comment that the prices were from only 2 stores and they are from 2013. So of course the food cost have escalated. So give the editor a break and focus on the food.

I have this conversation (every time I'm at my doctor's office) about the price of healthy foods. She doesn't get it either....lining her fridge with healthy foods is easier for her pocketbook than mine. These prices quoted here? Wow! Please don't stoop to adding insult to injury....be accurate and suggest ways that you're going to lobby to help LOWER healthy foods costs!
