Super foods, super expensive

I read this story yesterday

…many super foods like blueberries are popular because they allow you to enjoy health benefits without skimping on taste. They’re not alone: Super food lists widely vary, but here’s a list of 10 that show up on many nutritionists’ lists and on various Web sites.

The list included: acai, salmon, swiss chard, cherries, green tea, walnuts, blueberries, kefir, brown rice, ground flax seed. Varied ingredients with a common goal – to make you super healthy.

I quickly pulled my shopping list and added a few of those.

I spotted the blueberries – (yes!) – $6 for 2 lb. No way. I’ll stay with strawberries, they are probably almost as healthy anyways.

Walnuts were almost $10 a pack. I’m a college student, I can’t afford a $10 pack of nuts.

I chose the salmon fillets at the fish section, then saw the tilapia filets. It was $8 for salmon vs $3 for tilapia. Guess who won.

I ended up with only two items of my super food list: green tea and brown rice (which was actually a bit more expensive than regular, but bearable).

I guess it was super food, not super cheap. Sorry to find out I can’t afford being super healthy.
