This is what $7 buys at Whole Foods

We went to Chick-Fil-A for dinner last night using the a Groupon we bought ($8 for up to $17 in 2 combo meals). Which is good for us because we go there maybe once a month. The Mr stayed with the Piggie as she finished her ice cream cone. *If you don't want the book they give you in the kids meal, you can swap it out for an ice cream cone. I walked over to Whole Foods because my sister has been raving about Icelandic yogurt being better than Greek. Anyways, I went over there with the intent of buying apples and yogurt. I walked in and saw a beautiful display of heirloom tomatoes and had to take one home for me. Finally on my way out I walked by a sea weed display. For $0.99 I wanted to try out their "low sodium" version. To be honest, I really don't know how it compares to the ones you get at the Korean market. Now I know the low sodium is 50mg...I'll make sure I check.

So here's the deal - I'm all about trying to eat organic and buy local. However for $7, I feel like I can get a lot more bang for my buck at farmer's market. I paid $2.49/lb on the apples and $3.59/lb on the tomato. I guess that's the premium I pay for getting pseudo farmer's market fresh on a whim. I'm just saying.

the farmers market that i go to is an average of $2.50/lb for most fruits. the heirloom tomatoes are $4.00/lb...so for me whole foods isn't that bad.
