Eat– for Good Health

Spring’s bounty is about to hit the shelves, and with my money saving moves, you can stock up on fresh fruits and veggies without emptying your wallet.  The farmer’s market photo below is courtesy of photographer Natalie Maynot.  1). If shopping at the supermarket, know that grocers spray water to freshen produce, but the problem for the shopper is that we pay for the extra water.  Shake, shake, shake off that water before placing produce in your bag.  2). Serve up some savings at the salad bar.  Some items may actually be cheaper there, and particularly if we only need a small amount.  3).  Because a farmer’s market eliminates the middle man, this boosts savings for fruit and vegetables.  At a fresh produce market, change is in short supply which prompts some retailers to give you a discount if you pay with correct change.  4)  Your wallet’s best friend is the scale.  If something like a cabbage is a set amount, weigh some big ones and choose the biggest.  Peppers vary with the amount of seeds they contain.  Seeds are heavy.  Pick a pepper that is large and light in weight.

    Kiwana, I go to Sprouts Farmers Market a couple times a week. Produce is higher quality and cheaper. A head of Romaine that sells in a supermarket for $1.69 is .99 at Sprouts. Dairy is cheaper, too, as well as meat and soy products. But, I do to the supermarket for pet food. It’s expensive at Sprouts, and our dogs and cats are fine with non-organic.

    Hey Mary Alice–in fact I have to leave soon. I’m lector #2 today at 10:30 and will take the part of the Voice which encompasses the betraying group against Jesus.

    It’s getting tougher and tougher, and I’m guessing there will be prayers about it in “Prayers of the Faithful” but pray all they want, the priesthood continues with cover ups. I think an organization is the most faulty when there is dishonesty from the top down.

    As much as I enjoy the pomp of the Catholic church, the hierarchical structure and craziness that priests can’t be married keeps me protestant!!
