|My first red dragon fruit!|
I didn't take a picture of my dinner, because it couldn't have been more boring. I was craving rice and tofu. Like just rice and tofu. It might sound weird, but sometimes I crave just plain rice, and plain baked tofu. Sometimes I eat it as is, last night I drizzled on some Trader Joe's soyaki sauce, and lots of sriracha. It tasted amazing! Very soothing.
I watched a video this morning on YouTube where the topic of buying organic came up, and they kind of shrugged at the fact that someone doesn't want to pay the higher prices for organics. I wish that instead of shaming people who can't, or won't buy organic, we could shame some of the stores and companies into lowering the prices. In some cases organic foods can be double or triple the cost of non organic. And I'm not even talking just Whole Foods, I'm talking about organic produce at a regular old grocery. It is an issue that seems to get swept under the rug.
I know that because I now have Trader Joe's and Grocery Outlet very near me, I'm able to buy mush more organic than I was previously. Not everyone has access to those stores. Many people don't even have access to a store with any produce, let alone organic!
I read an article like a hundred years ago that said if we all keep supporting organic this and that, it would bring the cost down. I also read an article a hundred years ago that said reality television would fizzle out. Both of these articles lied right to my face! I hope that maybe someday this problem will be solved. Okay rant over. Sorry, I guess that video bothered me more than I thought. Shaming is an alarming trend on YouTube. I just did a massive unsubscribe not too long ago, and recently channels that I thought were safe are maybe not so safe.
Happy Sunday. May we all be as content as my stoned kitties!
