Typical Whole Foods trip. Since I order my meals, grocery shopping is for fruits, snacks etc. I get organic because conventional fruits & produce (i.e., anything that doesn't say "organic") are sprayed with pesticides when they're being grown — in other words, the stuff that kills insects are sprayed on your fruits and vegetables. Washing them off won't get it all off, on top of the fact that the soil in which your food grows absorbs those same chemicals. The bananas are my usual pre-workout meal and the spinach is what used to be potato chips or pretzels. This photo is $47 worth of food. Some people — including me in the past — think that eating organic & shopping at Whole Foods is expensive. Well, do you have any friends or relatives who have regular medical bills in their middle- or old-age because of what they put in their body for years? Or someone who can't take care of themselves anymore and end up in a nursing home or being cared for by their children? What if you can't walk or go to the restroom by yourself for the last 10 years of your life? What price do you put on that? Of course there are other factors (such as exercise) but what you put in your body is a big part of the equation. Those medical bills are much more than the cost of groceries. I heard a TED talk where a woman said, "you can either pay now, or pay later." #Organic #Food #WholeFoods #Food #Health
