I love going to the Chinese supermarkets. The food is fresh and so inexpensive. I always forget how fun it is to walk through the vegetable aisle trying to figure out what all the different vegetables are and how can I use them. I went the other day and filled my cart with vegetables, fruit, sauces and more, all for under $70. The best part is, I come home with lots of fresh vegetables, tofus, meat, and noodles to make a weeks worth of healthy delicious dinners.
Some of these ingredients can be found at standard grocery stores, but you will spend 20-50% less by going to the Chinese Markets. For example, 3 bunches of green onions were only $0.99, compared to $0.99/each at Safeway.
I’ll try recording all my dishes so you too can take a trek to the Chinese market and try something new. Here’s pictures of some of the things I bought on my little trip:
