It's not how you eat but how you shop

I overheard two ladies whinging about cooking and saying how they were bored with their same repertoire, then one said 'I just go round Tesco's looking for new inspiration", she doesn't find it.
How have our large supermarkets blinded people to think there isn't an alternative.
There is and that's the High Street, SHOP LOCALLY,  talk to the experts and the producers and they will recommend what's special and how to cook it.  Start at your local butchers, buy some pork from them, it's cheap and I bet cheaper than the supermarket.  Follow this on with a trip to your greengrocers, buy what's seasonal, our local Bramleys, sells bowls and bowls of fruit and veg for £1 each.  Take it home in a box with change in your pocket and zero packaging for the landfill.  Follow this up with a trip to your local bakers, buy a fresh loaf ideally an overnight dough, you won't have to keep it in the fridge and it will last a week.
Try it please, you might even like it, let me know how you get on.

  1. Pretty depressing that they would have sought inspiration in Tesco.
