And, oh boy, did we! I managed to knock out 95% of the fruits/vegetables on my list for about 1/2-1/3 of the price!! Here's what we got...
- 1 bunch of bok choy - $1 (SCORE!)
- 1 bunch kale - $1
- 1 bunch beets (4 beets) - $1
- 3 avocados - $4
- 1 medium sized piece of ginger, 1 onion, 1 bunch of broccoli, 1 garlic bulb, 1 zucchini - $3.50 for the bunch (double SCORE!)
- 3 tomatoes - a couple bucks
I don't remember the price of the strawberries as they were the boyfriend's purchase. I also got a "Tri Color Salad"
I tried a little bit when I got home and, while I love the small ingredient list, I found it a bit bland. It could really use some lemon or vinegar to give it a kick and at $4 it was hardly a steal. Overall I found the fresh produce to be great, fresh and cheap; plus I love supporting the local farmers! The prepared foods such as the Tri Color salad and dried fruits, etc weren't as good a deal. Later, Matt and I went to the gym where I worked out my legs BIG time! After, I used half of the bok choy, the zucchini, the broccoli and two carrots I had at the apartment to make a wonderful veggie brown rice stir fry for tonight's dinner.I'll be eating these leftovers all week!
Oh, and did I show you the bowl I bought for my fresh produce last week??
I thrifted it for $4!! The boyfriend and I are loving all of the great thrift stores around Los Angeles and the wonderful treasures they hold!
