Re: “Grocery Co-Opted

Yes, price matters, but health does too. It's very complicated, but I shop both -- 99-cents Only Store for goods; will now shop Mandela Foods for food. We are bamboozled into buying cheaper when it's making us sick, especially long term. My nephew came with me to the grand opening and came home telling his mom, "Look mom! Healthy candy tastes good!" lol Last time, we had whole-grain waffles and I told him to give it a minute to see if he was full (we all have unbelievable appetites, and can't deny them). I promised that if he was hungry 30 minutes later, I'd get him a snack or something more to eat. We went on with our day and that day he told my grandma, "GG, I had a waffle that actually got me full!" That's what the healthier (natural/organic, etc.) food does. It is what your body needs. The cheaper stuff has been changed somehow, therefore, affecting how it works in fulfilling the needs of our body. There is an art to how we need to manage this, especially on a tight budget, but it must be done. Options is an exciting start!
