Don’t overpay for precut fruits and veggies!

Meanwhile, on the flip side of things, we all know fruit and veggies are healthy. But when you’re picking up a few quick items at the grocery store, how much are you overpaying for those precut fruits and vegetables? ShopSmart magazine ran the numbers and found some startling conclusions:

Product Cost vs. national average per pound
Diced onion 370% more
Kale (washed, trimmed) 317% more
Cut green beans 192% more
Pomegranate seeds 166% more
Oven-ready potatoes 147% more
Butternut squash (peeled and cubed) 93% more

The only one exception where it was cheaper to buy already prepared was with broccoli florets. Those were 12% cheaper precut than unprepped.

Most people only eat the little flowery part anyway. If you eat the whole stalk, then it is cheaper to buy whole thing. But other than that buy it prepped!
