First up, a very simple salad. One thing people tend to forget about cheap eating is that produce is pretty economical. The amount you can buy for the same amount of pre-made food is astounding. I am always amazed at what $20 of fresh fruits and veggies looks like compared to $20 worth of frozen dinners.

TOTAL MEAL COST: $1.25!
Honestly, the real star of the show was the reed avocado I used. We sell them at my job right now and they were on special last month. I paid 99 cents for an avocado the size of a softball! I never realized there were different types of avocado before moving to California. What I can tell you is that reeds are huge and silky smooth. Those bad boys are straight buttery and perfectly sliceable. The best avocados that I've ever tried. You'll never go back to haas. Check it:
