Love/hate relationship

I have discovered a love/hate relationship with whole foods. Jon and I went there last weekend before I started the challenge to load up on some healthy foods that werent so processed. I knew it would be a little more expensive than our weekly Albertson's trip. You guys it was WAY more expensive. We got a lot of  produce there. I had gotten an apple from harvest a few days prior to that and my apple literally tasted like nothing.   I kept taking more bites expecting to taste something and instead tasted absolutely nothing. So I thought maybe organic produce would taste better. Thinking this produce was going to be only slightly more expensive I was on board. After checking out at whole foods I looked at Jon and said, "never again..."

Today we went to Walmart. Yes, I forgot today was Sunday and more people attend wal mart than they do church services on Sunday. I got some produce there for much less and figured I wouldn't notice the difference too much. I just had half a cucumber. I don't even know if I can call it that, but I can't think of anything else to call it right now. It was disgusting. It tasted basically like slimy semi-solid water if you can imagine that. 

My point...well I don't know. I know the produce tasted like a million bucks from whole foods. It cost that much too  but who am I kidding, ill see you tomorrow whole foods so I can once again savor my delicious apples and cucumbers. If I'm going to have a diet consisting of so much fruits and veggies you better believe they are going to be the tastiest ones I can find!


  1. I don't know about growing apples, but I grow my own cucumbers every year and they are amazing!!! I also do snap beans, squash, zucchini, bell pepper, and herbs! Just saying, seeds and dirt are really cheap!

  2. Well first of all, thanks for leaving a comment. You were my first comment! Well, actually you were my second. The first one had to be deleted because it was a random person being ugly for no reason haha.

    Secondly, that's really cool that you grow so many things. I have been working on my garden, but I DO NOT have a green thumb. I think may get some seeds and try it out though!
