"What goes bad is good for you"
This is a line I repeat to myself over and over again when I shop for groceries.
And as a result I come back with shopping bags full of greens and whole grains.
Is it easy?
No it isn't.
The greens spoil quickly and must be consumed rapidly.
They come with soil on them and I have to spend a lot of time cleaning them
The whole grains have a short shelf life.
I have to buy them in small quantities and use them quickly.
But I keep reminding myself
That if the bacteria and fungi - that are brainless organisms - think something is not worth eating...
Then I with my highly evolved brain should definitely not eat it.
Because it simply has no nutritional value!!
If we plan to win the battle against microorganisms and live on the earth... we need to follow their lead and eat what they eat.
This pandemic has taught us how precarious our hold over the world is.
Let's not lose that hold.
What do you have on your shelves?
