"Cannot people realize how large an income is thrift?"
Hello everyone! I hope that this day finds you healthy and well.
I'll warn you now. This is another one of my "what am I going to write about today" blogs. Come on... They're not that bad are they? On second thought... Don't answer that please.
|What is this? Why does Chucky show this image to me?|
Okay, it doesn't take a brain scientist to conclude that the above includes the following items: 2 bottles of P.K.N.T. Carménère wine, a bag of habanero peppers, a 5-ounce bottle of hot sauce, a container of fresh blackberries, 5 tomatoes on the vine, and 11-ounces goat cheese.
"But why the picture Chucky?" Will you take the "how much did Tiffany and Chucky pay for all of this" challenge? As a twist to this puzzle, I will tell you had we not tossed in the blackberries it would have cost us and extra two bucks ($2.00 USD). "This simply doesn't make sense Chucky." But it does with a coupon.
Would you believe $27.00 for ALL of this beautiful and healthy food at Eat More Produce? We had to toss in the $3.00 blackberries in order to make that magic $5.00 off of $30.00 or more price-point.
"Okay, so I get it. You only paid $27.00 for all of this. Yes, that's an incredible price but what is your point Chucky?" My point being that enjoying the life as a vegetarian (or vegan) is most affordable and achievable. Contrary to what I frequently read when people are considering an improved lifestyle, it is NOT an expensive task. Actually, money stays in your pocketbook on two accounts: (1) vegetarian/vegan food sources are cheaper than carnivorous meats and (2) your long-term healthy cost will most certainly be lowered.
This is not only my opinion but simple fact. Tiffany & I eat healthier and more diversified than ever before. And for less. We laugh and smirk to ourselves when we go into Costco and see those poor carnivorous souls cost-comparing items in the meat counter. It's an expensive price a carnivore pays for their meal. The cost to the environment, the cost to their pocketbook and the cost to their health. I often reflect back and wonder why I lived that way? I suppose that I simply did not know better. Nor did I realize that living life is cheaper and more affordable now.
