Many bloggers recently have emptied their purses and shared its contents with others.
I find it interesting to see what woman carry in their purse, but what I find even more fascinating is what is in stranger’s grocery carts.
For the most part I only peer inside people’s carts while waiting in the checkout. I am ashamed to admit it, but do pass judgment on carts filled with processed foods and white bread.
And I can’t help but comment under my breath when people buy ridiculous snacks/meals for their children.
It usually sounds like this: ‘Don’t buy that crap for your kids.’
People please, I beg of you, don’t buy Lunchables for your children. Have your read the nutritional label on these things? They are full of salt and fat.
Make your own. Low-fat whole wheat crackers are better full-fat, no-nutrition white cracker.
Lunchables make me shutter as does juice cocktail (code: not juice) and other sugared drinks and single-serving oatmeal with cookies and other treats inside.
I like looking in people’s carts, seeing something I would never buy and getting information about it. I learned about lychee nuts after seeing the fellow shopper put them in her cart and I have been stopped on many occasion to ask about the variety of produce that finds its way into mine.
So let’s start a new blog trend. What’s in your grocery cart or equally as exciting, what’s in your fridge?
