grocery shopping

Every day there's a new, supposedly healthy super food on grocery shelves promising you eternal youth -- or at least a trimmer figure. Some of those foods are actually legit. They really do deliver a high dose of powerful nutrients. Also? Most of them have been around forever, and you'll find them in the produce aisle. They're called fresh fruits and vegetables. You should try some!

Womp, womp. But seriously, we're not judging you for trying out some of the trendy health foods out there. That can be fun. It's just that some of them are rip offs. You're shelling out a lot of money for food that doesn't actually do that much for you. Here are 6 health food rip offs you can cross off your grocery list.

I disagree on the almond milk. Its the tastiest milk option Imo. I know I could make it from real almonds, but I could also get cow milk from a cow. Its just easier to buy it in a carton.
As for the nuts. I don't have a bulk section near me so I buy them in the baking aisle. So many options of unsalted nuts and cheaper.

I buy bulk almonds from Costco and make my own almond milk and flour but the milk doesn't taste the same as store bought and it goes bad very quickly. We end up buying almond milk but use both kinds.
