Look what happened now...
Ready, Set, Jet!
Yes, That is one HUGE avocado
It should be, it cost me $1.50US but as I stood in the produce department lost in thought over the pros and cons of spending that much for 1 avocado, I thought what am I doing? I love them, they are super healthy and it's not that MUCH. But the more I thought on it, the more I wondered why it is still so hard for me to spend more on good veg?
They are organic, healthy and a filling meal. So why am I complaining? Why did I hestate to put them in the bag? I think I still have the mindset that I shouldn't pay that much for vegetables or fruit. Even though thats mostly all I eat. I remmeber what they used to cost and it sucks they are so expensesive now, but everything has gone up. I don't eat fast food, God only knows what that costs now a days.
*Note: I do not count tacos as fast food, ok?
Speaking of prices, here is more sticker shock from a recent shopping adventure:
There would be more photos, but I received a call while in the store and had to leave. So I only spent $110.USD (mostly on nuts and fruit).
That's 2 cases of water making my trolley look so full. Everyone here in South Texas drinks bottled water. No one drinks tap water. The city says it safe, but it smells of chlorine and tastes awful. To be honest, it also breaks out my skin if I stay in the shower or bath too long. It's just not pleasant.
I am so used to drinking bottled water, that when I travel I also purchase bottled water, much to the shock of the locals. I'm sure your tap water is great, but here in the land of oil and fracking it seem like we would be much better off drinking bottled water. So don't be a hater.
And who doesn't want to kill parasites, have glowing skin and sleep better? I'm in!
Life is good again. All it took was a basket full of fruit and veg.
Todays breakfast was a very filling smoothy made with organic blackberries, over ripe bananas, and with just a splash of (not tap water) almond milk. It was delicious purple goodness.
See you at the airport-
