Produce varies depending on where you are in the world. Use what you’ve got, and make it work. Do try to shop outside your comfort zone because you might find something amazing like this:A HUGE lovely bunch of organic spinach. And mind you, we’ve had MANY a store clerk comment on our organic produce. It isn’t uncommon to hear:
” I wish WE could go organic too, but we just can’t afford it.” – It’s true, sometimes you can’t. We couldn’t for awhile. BUT, now we can because we make sacrifices in other areas.
“Is this ACTUALLY organic?” – Sounds simple, but mix that with the cashiers look and tone, and what she was truly “saying” was “what a waste of money.”
But, when our Spinach compares to THIS, far left:
we will put up with a few comments. The middle piece of spinach is from a bunch of organic spinach from a moderate health food store. I’m not such a fan of baby spinach anymore. The spinach on the left is grown in Colorado, maybe the mountains help to grow crazy big and yummy spinach? I don’t know.
What is your best salad? I need some ideas. You all know my favorite…corn, black beans…
You ladies made me feel WONDERFUL! I really was in a funk the past two days…just ask my Mom. I was crappy, nasty, grumpy AND I didn’t even have PMS. Imagine if I had! No wait, don’t do that. Thank you friends for lifting me up!
