Often I feel overwhelmed at the amount of unshared knowledge I have in my head. I am sure many people could say the same. But then it also amazes me how lacking some people are in basic things, like how to eat healthy.
Watching the buying pattern in market is an education. We are a farmers’ market with a diverse array of vendors, the same is true of our customers. Our customers vary from the upscale chef and the organic shoppers all the way down to the junk food, out for a scroll customer. While some are buying organically grown carrots and leeks, others are buying donuts, chips and pretzel wrapped hot dogs. While one group is not necessarily more likeable than the other, I can tell you there is a difference in the over all appearance of these two groups of people. If only they would stand side by side in front of the mirror those under nourished and over calorie people might see the rewards of healthy eating. It’s not that hard when you get right down to it. Start with vegetables, add a little meat and fruit and stay away from the bread, cakes, pastas, potatoes and sugar. Oh, and eat raw vegetables and fruits or learn to cook; processed foods are a big no. They suck up your food budget and leave you fat and malnourished.
