I tried to do a comparison shop with the big guys and what I paid in Houston and the total came to $700.00 without tax. In all fairness though - I did say that the groceries in Houston are ~ half the price more or less, so the same groceries/house/body keeping items would have come to $1060.00 or so here in California.
The items they didn't have were:
Gluten Free oats
Wheat Free Tamari
raw goat cheese
black soy beans
But - the equation goes deeper than that when we consider most of the products I buy are produced in California and the carbon footprint is far less than buying the same from Houston. The injustice is that we pay way more for something grown in our own backyard than what we pay for it to be trucked to Houston, TX.
This morning we had a good breakfast:
Sauteed Spinach (drained)
Topped with fresh eggs over-easy
Have a nice one - later on - I'll be baking for Valentines!
