    thats not true. they have a phenomenal beer selection.

    but otherwise, whole foods is expensive as fuck. thats why people call it "whole paycheck"

    If you know what to buy there they aren't that bad. In the winter their produce seems to be better than some of the regular grocery stores. It also last longer. A lot of the produce I get other places rots out the next day or the day after. Since the wholefoods produce last longer we save money in the long run. But some of their shit is really expensive like their meat.

    why didn't you get one of their lunch specials for $7.99 or a whole pizza for $10? you can't go in there and say, "give me a bucket of mac and cheese" and not expect to be expensive.

    the hot bar sucks. it's fucking sneaky. i had a salad with an egg in it and cost my $12.

    the best bet is to get a lunch special or go to the grill area. some even have a burger/steak/fish diner too.

    Mac and cheese is easier just to grab it at the bar. I doubt its even much cheaper to make it yourself.

    yeah, but it's heavy. it's $7.99/lb for the bar. when i got my salad i think i had lettuce, turkey, an egg and a little bit of watermelon. probably $4 in ingredients and cost me $12. i'll never make that mistake again.

    another time i made a burrito at the bar, cost me $9. the one at the grill was only $7.

    Problem is I'm a picky eater...it's the one childhood thing I never overcame


    I eat very bland/basic food so that whole scene in there looks wack to me




    I don't eat any subs/wraps/sandwich's except grilled cheese (or cheese quesedillas)...no soup, no fruit, only veg is corn, some variants of chicken, no seafood, ect


    I'm much better about it now, when I was a kid it was hell going out to dinner

    Get a bike? :shrug: Then you might have a wider variety of stuff that's within a reasonable distance.
