After scrubbing approximately a half-inch of wax off of my apple this morning I decided that tonight I’d go by Whole Foods and see about that organic food the hippies talk about.
It was…pretty interesting. As soon as I walked in, I smelled fresh produce. It was stacked up very neatly and looked so…good! I immediately went for the apples. No waxiness! I also picked up some tomatoes, strawberries, baby carrots, mixed greens and sliced portabella mushrooms. All organic.
Confession: I have no idea what to do with sliced portabello mushrooms. (nor can I spell them, apparently) Any ideas?
Whole Foods is like bizarro Genuaridi’s. Lots of all-natural things. Lots of vegan things. Aisles of homeopathic remedies (something I’m getting more into as I get older). Nothing familiar! I bought some meat, chips, salsa and spaghetti sauce – all organic. I wonder if it’ll taste better? There was a pet food aisle, so I bought some organic rawhide rings for Max.
Yes, let me type that again so it sinks in. I bought organic rawhide rings for Max.
As in, I bought dried cowskin pieces with the word “organic” on them for my dog, who drinks from the toilet and occasionally partakes of the Litter Box Buffet. Sometimes I don’t know if I need a shrink or a slap.
Proactiv update: It seems to be working. My skin texture has vastly improved – very soft! I still break out on occasion, but the blemishes are smaller and go away quickly. And I don’t break out as much. It’s much more like the occasional zit that normal people get than the red and bumpy stuff that I used to get. The downside: It’s pricy, time consuming (5 products in the am, 3 in the pm), and it’s bleaching my pillowcase as I sleep.
Weight: 157.4. Down 1.4 from 2/24, and about 8 from where I was in December/January. It’s painfully slow, but now that I’ve added some Bowflexing to my life, business should pick up. I just want to be in size 10 shorts. Soon. Because one never knows when one will be jetting off to someplace warm, hm?
