I am constantly at a loss over food purchase. Lexington has a coop that offers locally grown food (as well as bulk spices, grains, and nuts). But Lexington is 2 1/2 hours away. There isn't much locally grown food because there is very little farmable land here in the mountains. There is a farmers' market at the park in the summer, but a number of folks simply go to the grocery store, buy a bunch of produce, then sell it off the back of their trucks. My husband is a vegetarian so we rarely buy meat. It's just so hard to know what to do. Thanks for the heads up - I'll start paying more attention.

I get lost with processed food, and restaurant food. I try to cook everything with whole grains, but it does take a lot of time. But it's the only way I think.

I loved this and had to comment. After living in Downtown Fort Worth for several years and having Central Market with in a few miles, we were eating well. I thought when we moved to this little town in East TX, that farmer's markets would be on every corner and I there would be NO problem in finding fresh fruits, vegetables, etc. To my horror, all we have is a WAL MART and one independent grocery left and rumor it is to close the end of year. (2 others closed their doors this year). No farmer's market here either.
So, I went back to my roots, and planted my own garden this year. Not the variety I had enjoyed at Central Market. But I refuse to shop at Wal Mart and much less buy there quote 'fresh produce'!. Thanks for doing the research, it sure gives me a lot to think about and looks like more studying on my end!
