$10.26!!!  All of these vegetables could last a week for a family of 4.  Just $10!!!  I've always believed that you can eat nutritiously at a low price, you just have to make a conscious decision with regards to where you buy your groceries.  If your local Chinatown is not close by, you can always try your local Asian markets since typically, Asian markets sell fresh produce at cheaper prices compared to the large chain supermarkets.  One thing to keep in mind is that at times, those cheaper produce might not last as long.  Again, planning is key.  With a little planning, you can eat whole, nutritious food with little cost.

So what was your guess?  Leave a comment I would love to know!
