Price wars in family nutrition! !

I was chatting with a friend of mine today … she had just spent ten euro in the supermarket.
She got….

A bag of salad leaves
2 punnets of berries
A bag of parsnips

Expensive?

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)

However …..
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

    Very good point. Plus, it may likely be a matter of spend more on good, healthy food now and save a lot later on not needing doctors’ visits, prescription drugs, etc. Fortunately I think more people are beginning to realize that, although drug companies and Big Ag do a lot of advertising to brainwash people. So glad the internet gives us ways to access information that mainstream news and most government agencies are not good at making available.

  4. Yeah thank the universe for freedom of information on the Internet! !! Thanks for stopping by Zirah!
