While it can be done and there is noticeable improvement lately, it is not always easy to find healthy foods in grocery stores here San Pedro.
In an effort to help tacoboy and I get better at healthy foods and healthy ways, I decided to pay a visit to our local health food store and see what they had and do some price comparisons for the items I bought. After all was said and done I was happy with the items I got for the price paid. Even the unknown brand of probiotics I checked out at GNC in Playa Del Carmen fell in the $25 USD range.
Since the store prices were all in Belize dollars I converted them to USD dollars to go with the online comparison.
