Hello everyone and thank you for visiting…
Perimeter shopping at the grocery store has always been my way of shopping for food. I would only visit the interior isles of the store for a very few food items. Perimeter shopping is now enforced by all grocery stores.
When shopping for groceries, I would only shop the perimeter of the store. It made perfect sense! This is where you will find all of the healthy foods, fresh fruits, vegetables, lean meats, fish, eggs and whole grains. That’s all your body needs.
Now, we are forced to shop this way to keep us safe from contracting the virus. When you enter the store, there are little arrows on the floor, to show what direction to go, and which way to go down each aisle as to help in keeping our distance from other shoppers.
I have preached perimeter shopping to my clients and friends. The Coronavirus makes it mandatory for us to shop this way. Things have drastically changed. I think it’s a good thing in ways, but it makes me sad to see wilted produce and sparsely filled shelves.
I have chosen to buy more frozen fruits and vegetables as not to waste the fresh vegetables. They are, by the way, just as good for you, nutritionally, as fresh. But now I am skipping over the fresh stuff.
Now I mostly skip over the fresh produce, except for the vegetables that I am going to cook that night, or within the next few days. I am afraid that I will waste the vegetables and fruits that I purchase. I always grab citrus, onions, garlic, avocado, and some unripen bananas. Not ever sure what the next day will bring.
I can’t wait until the Pandemic is over and we get back to our the normalsee of Fruit Stands, and Open air Fresh Food Markets!
…..remember to make a memory every day, and don’t apologize for who you are….Rebecca
