Another R320 (+/-$32) healthy spend

I feel old when I shop like this, but ironically, I feel young when I eat like this!

Why am I posting what I bought?

When I go to the supermarket, I feel like I’m shopping in a mausoleum. Much of the food is dead. It’s packaged in boxes, tins, and plastic, and has been treated with heat and chemicals. People don’t realise this; they think that because it’s being sold in a store, that it must be fit for human consumption.

The stuff I’m buying is not necessarily organic or perfect, but I think at least a large percentage of it is fresh. It’s my new way of shopping, and I can’t imagine reverting to my old ways. I wonder to myself, if I don’t buy 70% fresh produce, then what AM I buying?

This is the healthy food I got for R320 (+-$32) at Pick ‘n Pay Supermarket, Cape Town, South Africa. Nicely wrapped in plastic!
