So I just got back from grocery shopping.
I went to Target and got a 2-liter bottle of Pepsi. With the coupon it was free, so no money there! Of course, it meant that I had to buy Pepsi, so I guess my husband and daughters will have it (my son and I don't drink cola).
Now the lady who wrote the book "Not Buying It" said that she didn't buy anything that was processed during her year-long experiment.
As I was shopping at Costco, it suddenly dawned on me, what exactly does "processed" mean?
I bought milk, heavy cream (so we could make our own ice-cream), ground beef, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, and lemon juice.
I was torn on the lemon juice. Should I have bought fresh lemons instead and juiced them myself? Is lemon juice "processed"? If it is, was the cream also "processed"? Should I have gotten a steak and ground it myself?
So confusing. Anyway, the good news is that my Costco bill was about half of what it usually is!
