Luci's Healthy Marketplace in Phoenix: What We Bought, What We Skipped and What We're Still Lusting Over

Page 3 of 3

What We Skipped: Why anyone would ever spend $19.75 for an iPhone case with a brass knuckle style holder on the side is beyond us. We expect that kind of douchebaggery in areas of Scottsdale, but not in uptown. On a different level of self-unawareness, the nearly $16 book "Journey to the Self" is on sale at Luci's. The only self-help we're looking for in our grocery store is the occasional self-checkout lane. All trinkets aside, we just couldn't fathom buying our next find--a honey-flavored agave nectar ($5.99). Sorry to the level 10 vegans, but we love real deal local, raw honey too much to give it up and flavored agave is just no substitute.
