It was full of great things....the breads looked SO delicious and there was a pain au chocolat that was screaming to me. Lots of lovely veggies and fruit. Music. Good smelling brekkies being cooked up. I liked it.
Unfortunately, but not unexpectedly, it was expensive, and of course it is. Two reasons, I guess - what the market can bear and just simply the lack of buying power or producing power of large corporations. And growing organic is expensive. Hey - if I was cashed up, I would shop there all the time for everything. As it is, I am not, and I just don't have that kind of money. What I did opt for was to buy the fresh fruit and veg that's higher on the list of pesticide-laden - the dirtiest, if you like based on list such as the EWG Dirty Dozen. (If you haven't check out their website..it's so bloody great. Seriously.)
Therefore, today I got....some capsicum and some celery and also I got zucchini and pears cos they looked yum and I have some recipes in mind. They're pretty organic - I came across quite a few critters in amongst the celery ribs. Ewww.
Although I think it's great for Little Miss O to get into healthy eating and be aware of all the good things out there, it's a bit hectic with a 4 year old. Maybe when she is a bit older and not so easy to lose in a crowd. I also spent some time trying to find my dad who came back laden with pies and peanut butter. Sigh. Also - it's very busy by about 9.30 am. My next goal? Early and alone!
See you there.
