    Don't be so concerned about yesterday, or worried about tomorrow, that you forget to enjoy today.

    "Garden" burgers, tofurkey, fake/soy bacon, pepperoni, etc. Vegannaise. Vegetarian cheese - really? I've yet to taste a vegetarian cheese that tastes anything like cheese, and if it tastes like s***, it's probably not that great for you.

    This. The "vegetarian" section of my grocery store makes me all twitchy.

    Yeah, me too. That whole section at my co-op is full of 'healthy vegetarian" frankenfoods. Even when I was briefly vegetarian, I couldn't choke down fake cheese. Blech.

    With the exception of the Farmer's Market most stores are 80% glorified health foods or junk foods. That's why you just go around the outside to the produce, meat and dairy aisle.

    Trader Joe's does have a lot of food I don't buy but:
    Produce is generally good and about 50% less than Farmer's Market or some place like Whole Foods.
    I can get good eggs.
    Kerrygold Butter is dirt cheap.
    I can get grass fed ground beef, steaks and they have had leg of lamb lately.
    I get lots of fish for my SO.
    Frozen fruit and veggies are cheap and enhance my eggs and smoothies.
    They have lots of nuts and almond butter is not too pricey.

    It's pretty easy to walk past all the crap and just buy what I need. But bottom line, I can spend $165 a week at Whole Foods or the Farmer's Market, $130 a week at Harris Teeter or $100 a week at Trader Joe's. If Trader Joe's selling crappy processed healthfoods is part of what enables them to sell me good foods cheap, so be it.

    But I digress:
    Healthy Choice Frozen Meals.
    Fat Free Sugar Free Yogurt that tastes like fake desserts.
    Smoothies at the damn smoothie place by me that only has soy protein and uses "fat free frozen yogurt" as the base.
    Oatmeal packets with the second ingredient being sugar.

    I don't really notice all those other products anymore. I couldn't provide you a list.

    Except the meat. Unless it's the lamb I don't think their meat is any different from meat you can get anywhere. I think there was even a recent news article revealing their pork to be just the basic CAFO stuff or something like that. So I can pay what is it, $8 a pound for top sirloin at TJ's or I can go to my meat market and get it for $3.50 a pound. Sometimes less if it's on sale.
