If you know me personally, you probably know that shopping for clothes is not really my thing. I get bored, grumpy, tired, and hungry- the hanger gets real. On the other hand, I do like a good trip to the grocery store. Maybe it’s because I still live at home and going grocery shopping is something I choose to do rather than have to do, or maybe it’s because I love food, but I’m a careful shopper and I have a good time with it.
Now, if supermarkets would just STOP BEING FREEZING and crowded, we’d really be talking.
Of course, country-hopping around Europe has allowed me to visit a plethora of markets and supermarkets. In a new country, I always try to walk into one! I think you can tell so much about a culture from the food culture there. Plus, there are fun products. (Which I don’t usually buy unless they’re something I will snack on, since I’m living in a homestay and my host mom prepares meals for me.)
I know my sister and my cousin went a little overboard and bought like 10 news flavors of Pringles (definitively not Spanish) when they visited me. That said, I decided to share some photos of a Spanish grocery store for a lighter post today.
The Produce Section
More Refrigerated Products
That’s all for today!
Did you like the lighter post? (There has GOT to be somebody else in the world obsessed with grocery stores.) Do you want me to get back to talking about intuitive eating, HAES, and other more serious issues?
In lieu of this post, I thought about writing a travel recap. Would there be any interest in that?
Okay, lots of questions, but finally:
How do you feel about grocery shopping?
Do you try to avoid buying “junk food” because you don’t trust yourself to keep it in the house?
Do you look at nutrition labels? Do you find yourself paralyzed trying to choose between products?
And, what are you favorite cool products?
Happy Mother’s Day to everyone celebrating on Sunday, and especially to my mom. I love you more than you know!
