What you are looking at here is just the fruits / veggies we bought. I think we calculated the total cost around $23.00. $23.00 will get you all of the food above: we are talking: bananas, 3 peppers, 3 heads of broccoli, a case of mushrooms, a large bag of spinach, carrots, apples, sweet potatoes, regular potatoes, 6 kiwi, plums, Brussel sprouts, grapes, onions and 5 large stuffed size mushrooms.
Another fun fact is that most of these items are imported from Holland, France, Chile, Ireland, etc. I just can't understand how all of these imported items are so cheap when oranges / other fruits from California are soooooooooooooooo expensive and they are domestic back home!
While I terribly miss certain foods, I am quite pleased with how fresh you can feed your family over here for so cheap. Steve and I can literally feed our entire family for a week on $50.00 a week (not including booze). How crazy is that?
Just thought I would share a little tidbit into our grocery shopping each week. I am pretty much eating the same healthy foods as I was back home, but at such a discount!!!
While the English love to indulge, especially when it comes to chocolate, pints, fish & chips, pies, etc., they also know how to get their veggie on!!!!
