I believe that there are two kinds of people. The ones that love a good super market thrill (like me) and the others who absolutely dread going to the super market (my sister). I am not sure if there is anyone in between.
I love a good super market visit. I am not prone to buying half of the store but I love finding new things on the shelves.We live in the suburbs of Athens and we really have crappy super markets. If I need to find everything I want I must go to 4 different places. Am I crazy? Maybe. Still, I have my reasons.
I need to cook three different kind of meals daily. Two low fat for N. & Yianni due to high blood cholesterol levels, one low calorie/low carb for me as I have recently had a thyroidectomy and one full fat for Iliana as she is the LUCKY one in our family with no dietary prerequisites or problems.
Furthermore, I try to find the healthy alternatives to shitty products full of MSG and not pay a small fortune while doing that. I could just go to the health store and buy everything from there. There are two problems though. One: I would need to find a job in order to afford the extra costs. Two: N. doesn’t really believe in organic stuff (I mean yes, they are better for you, but do we really know WHERE they are coming from)?
So, to cut the story short, these are the places I visit on a weekly basis: the local supermarket, the german discount super market chain -you can’t really beat their gherkins-, the local farm market and the health store (kid or kids inclusive).
Any other supermarket/grocery store addicts out there?
