Kay in Cal Posted March 1, 2008 Share Posted March 1, 2008 I am by no means the healthy police. I have been known to (cough cough) drive through. I will actually on occasion feed my children from the horrid "Blue Box of Death". I mix in peas first--that makes it healthy, right? Anyhow, just got back from some shopping and I'm consistantly shocked by the amout of crap that people buy. Chips. Cookies. Candy. Big cases of soda. Not a veggie in sight. And have you ever seen those pictures of "What the world eats"--the ones where the American family is surrounded by pizza boxes and fast food bags? So just to assure myself that the world is NOT coming to a culinary end--what veggies and fruit do you have in your house RIGHT NOW? Not what do you wish you have--but what do you actually have? Admittedly, I just shopped, so if you want to post on or after shopping day, that's fine. We'll count frozen--it is winter, after all. Here goes: Fresh Veggies: Asparagus Artichokes Tomatoes Cucumbers (English) Carrots (little peeled ones) "Snack Packs" with organic Broccoli, Carrots, Tomatoes and ranch dip Zucchini Onions Mushrooms Bagged Mixed Salad Greens Fresh Fruits: Apples (Granny smith and Gala--some new, some left over) Plums Raspberries Blueberries Mango (one--from last shopping trip) Pineapple Orange (one--from last shopping trip) Dried Fruits: Prunes (excuse me, "Dried plums") Raisins Frozen Veggies: several bags of green peas several bags of "mixed veggies" or "stir fry veggies" Brussels Sprouts (probably 10 or more bags--I love these things, even frozen) Green beans Hmmm.... just realized we need to get bananas, some iceberg lettuce and some whole broccoli. But we don't have those things now! The last bananas went on cereal this morning, and I threw out some old green onions and some old cabbage from the bottom of my bin. I hate that!
