This is why its annoying when people say its sooooooo much more expensive to eat healthy.
BULL. FUCKING. SHIT.
I go shopping for my entire family—I draw up the grocery list, I go to the store, I pick up the food, I know how much we pay for the goddamn stuff.
YOU CAN NOT FIND THIS SHIT FOR THAT FUCKING CHEAP. I don’t know where these morons went to get these prices but fuck them, cause nowhere around here is food like this that cheap. Where the fuck are they buying 2 pounds of chicken breast for $2? Not to mention, you can’t just buy some off brand shit and expect it to taste the same as the brand food that most people want.
This is not taking into account the time it takes to make food! I can spend hours shopping then returning to cook meals or I can go down the road and pick up something to eat in five minutes.
Thank you LH for your commentary!
No but for real though Danielle and I get our food from Aldi, aka cheapest food around, and I have *never* seen ground beef at even 80% lean for less than 3 bucks a pound. I agree with LH these prices are either fudged or not from this decade
I happen to work in a grocery store, so let me break that big top photo down for you into actual prices for the Greater Boston area:
- 1 box Morningstar burgers: $4.99
- 1 pound lean ground beef (I’ve never heard of 96% lean but you think 10 lbs of potatoes is $2 so): ~$4.63
- 1 lb cashews: at least $6. Organic will run you $9 or $10.
- 1 lb strawberries: $6.99 WHEN THEY’RE IN SEASON (a pint costs $5). In the winter expect to spend about $8 or $9.
- let’s just pretend you meant 1 pound of potatoes, okay?: $1.99 - $2.49 per pound, depending on variety.
- 1 gallon of real orange juice: $5.49
- 1 pound of frozen mixed vegetables: $1.99
- 1 bunch of broccoli: I forget but I think it’s $1.99 or $2.49
- 1 pound of pintos: $2.39
Let’s add that up, shall we?
That brings us out to $37 on the conservative side.
In short: fuck you, fuck your assumptive classism, go away.
