What if the only things we ate were things that we bought? I consider myself much “earthier” than the average city dweller; I forage for berries, I pick wild lettuces from time to time, and I can identify most edible fruits around me… and yet…
I or another person buys 99-100% of the food I eat.
What’s the issue?
What if there’s some food that simply can’t be sold very well?
There are some fruits that I love that are not sold in stores. Perhaps because people haven’t heard of them, perhaps because there isn’t a big enough market for them, or perhaps because they spoil too fast once removed from the plant.
I don’t want us to miss out on nutrition just because it doesn’t sell well.
Truly fresh food makes a difference. I can feel it. When I don’t eat from the farmer’s market for a couple weeks… my vitality goes down. When I eat fresh fresh… my vitality goes up.
When I lived on a farm… my vitality was waaay up there.
Some things just currently aren’t sold in stores, so we don’t buy them. We could spend a lifetime never getting certain things simply because they’re not sold.
SOME THINGS ARE NOT SOLD… you have to acquire them by other means.
