That is really cool, loving seeing how one simple dollar can yield so much or so little in different countries. Happy Tuesday hun!

Except for the organic blueberries, a good part of those $1.00 foods were refined, white flour. They say it costs money to eat well.
Don't forget the vegetables! :)
Hope you are having a good week, Veronica.
