I was chatting with a friend of mine today … she had just spent ten euro in the supermarket.
A bag of salad leaves
2 punnets of berries
A bag of parsnips
Berries are pricey enough in Ireland … and buying whats locally in season can help the price tag a bit ….
Fresh v frozen
Fresh local is best but frozen berries can sometimes make sense… better value for money, and are often nutritionally dense, being allowed to ripen before harvest… as opposed to the fruit termed fresh that may have had a long trip on a ship before reaching our shelves…..
This means …. on the journey, the unripe fruit may change colour similar to the ripened match, but is not indeed ripe in nutritional terms as it has been removed from the source of nutrients! (Soil)
the bigger shocker was what else you can buy at the supermarket for 10 euro????!!!!
…… only a 3 pack of processed frozen pizza plus a six pack of coca cola cans!!!!!!
….So we could bring home 3 pizzas and coke and feed about 6 kids??… of course instead of a salad starter and berry desert, more common when starting with pizza is to follow with ice cream!
….of course the payoff may be undernourished bodies that later in life need much intervention in battling against chronic illnesses diabetes obesity and heart disease!
So the question is …
