Thursday, 16 June 2011, Day 205/365.
I made a trip to the local market and it’s much much better than buying food in the supermarket.
The food is newer, I hope, and it’s certainly cheaper. I bought strawberries for about $2 cheaper per punnet than at the supermarket and bananas were $2 a kilo cheaper too. They’re still around $10 per kilo at the moment though because of the cyclones and bad weather in Queensland earlier in the year.
I’ve started making more fruit and yoghurt smoothies just so I can make some powder (a glucosamine type thing) I’m taking for my sore knee joints more palatable. You’re supposed to drink it with water but it smells and tastes hideous and makes me dry retch the two or three times I tried it.
With a fruit/yoghurt and milk smoothy I can barely taste it and if I hold my nose while the container’s open I don’t have to smell it at all.
