I actually spend less now buying fruits, veggetables, nuts and beans than when i purchased meat products along with fruits and vegetables. The local Walmart where I live has several organic options as well. Depending on where you live, you may want to consider farmer's markets. They are open year round in South Florida, but i'm sure that they may be seasonal other areas around the country. I buy a lot of smoothy foods (apples, pears, bananas) in the clearance bin $(1 per bag) because they are slightly bruised or the bananas have spots. Cut around the bruises and they are just fine!
