I went to one of the bigger grocery stores in my area that I knew would have some of the suggested items for the Action Plan. I about had a heart attack at the prices for stuff though. I did buy some brown rice. All the rest was crazy. Almond butter ranged from about $9 to $15 a jar. Depended which isle it was in. Same jar, same brand, different isle. ??? Talk about marketing. Agave nectar was in the same price range for a small container of it. Looks like I will have to be very careful about how I shop for this. I could easily have over a hundred dollar check-out with very little to show for it. Yikes. Winter sure makes me miss my garden and the farmer's market. Ours is seasonal. Prices of fruit and produce spike in the winter too.
Good shopping practices will be my major challenge it looks like.
