I’m starting a new category on my blog called “Signs I’m Getting Older”. Some realizations may be confronting. Others may be easy to accept and maybe even for the better. Like today.
A couple weeks ago before the lockdown I went to the market and for the first time bought fruit and veg (first time buying at a market. I have bought veggies before). For some reason I felt so proud of myself. I spent $15 and came back with a big bag of food and literally sent a picture to people I thought would be proud of me. And they were. Proud and impressed. So, it’s easy to see why I would have been excited to go back once I was allowed, which is what I did today.
$20 I spent on this crap. And at the same time, I’m impressed. I don’t eat real healthy a lot of the time but there’s something about going to a green grocer and buying this stuff direct instead of shopping at a supermarket which is what we usually do.
You can see the quality difference!
The sizes are different.
It looks healthier.
And I noticed it lasts longer too. Is that because I’m getting it directly from the source where else supermarkets go through the grower, the delivery dude and it gets dispersed between a couple stores? I’m speculating here. I don’t know how this stuff works. But I’m noticing the last time I bought from the market the veggies lasted about 2 weeks in the fridge. Even the cilantro lasted a week later than usual.
I’m also addicted to nuts now. Another sign I’m getting old? Never used to like them and suddenly I can’t wait to get every type of nut in my mouth! Brazilian nuts I love! And smoked almonds.
But it pains me how expensive these things are.
Why is everything good for you expensive!?
Don’t blame me when I’m fat. It’s just cheaper to be!
Look at my health haul!
