So are you considering "mugging" your carrots? :0)

That was terrible.

We don't eat meat and eat hardly any dairy or eggs, but there would be some. We would have several cartons of soy, almond, and coconut milk and some boxes of crackers, but that's it for boxed foods. There would also be a few cans of things like beans or tomatoes.

One thing I noticed is the variety we enjoy that many countries just don't have access to. You would not find a particularly large sack of any bean or grain, but would instead find 6 or 7 small bags because we rarely eat the same one for more than two meals in a week. We're very lucky here.

I also noticed that the family in North Carolina spent about twice as much as we do for a similarly sized family. (Their kids are older, so I'm sure they eat more. But if you've ever seen my kids pack it away, maybe not much more.) People always complain that eating healthy is too expensive, or eating vegetarian is too expensive, but that doesn't seem to be the case.
