November 13: An epiphany you had this summer
Runners often joke about being able to eat whatever we want.
Will run for ice cream. Will run for cupcakes. I thought you said rum.
But most runners recognize the importance of proper fueling - not just during the long runs, but always. There are lots of theories out there on what exactly is the best way to eat.
No matter what you choose - paleo, low carb, clean, etc - fresh produce is probably a key component.
CONFESSION: The produce department freaks me out.
I realized this summer just how intimidating the produce department is for me. I want to eat more veggies. I really do. They make me feel so clean and healthy.
But I can't stomach buying produce. There are so many choices, and I don't always know what they are or what to choose. I find myself just grabbing some bananas, packaged salad mix, maybe a couple roma tomatoes, and getting the hell out of there.
Becaue of this, it seems we really only have fresh produce during the weeks that we purchase a Bountiful Basket. I ♥ Bountiful!
Mostly because it takes the stress and anxiety out of produce shopping. Plus I get to try new things that I'd never try on my own.
Where do you get your produce?
Does the produce dept freak out anyone else?
