I have been a bit nervous about my ability to find BTD food in a small town. I've been in lots of small town grocery stores, and there wasn't much variety. The first grocery store I went to here, was just what I had expected. Standard produce selections - apples, bananas, carrots, lettuce, etc; but nothing exciting like Swiss chard or kohlrabi. Lots of prepared frozen food - most of it with MSG. It was depressing.
I tried another grocery store on my second shopping trip. Oh my! It was like going to a BTD smorgasbord. They had all sorts of fresh greens in their huge produce section. They even had kohlrabi, and it was fresh. They had soy milk and soy cheese. They had hormone free chicken and fresh fish. They had 100% rye flour and Ezekiel bread. They had grass fed ground beef. This will be a delightful place to shop.
I unpacked the last kitchen box today. I've gradually started cooking more fresh food. My husband and daughter are ready for me to resume baking.
