It's 6:30 at night.  I'm driving to the parking lot of an abandoned strip mall.  All that's left is a run down Kmart and a Taco Bell.  I didn't even know we still had a Kmart around here.  I pull up to see the usual crowd parked waiting in their cars for the semi to pull in.  We are a small group of people who are committed to organic natural foods, but not so keen on Wholefoods and their over the top prices.    I love seeing what everyone else is buying, learning how they store it and what else they do to cut corners.  There are lot of corners you can cut to feed your family well, but it is a commitment that many people don't understand, even criticize.  My husband being one of them.  He does not understand my need to make sure our children don't consume chemically laden juices and snacks.  He only see's the big price tags at Wholefoods eating away at his hard earned money.  I am not a huge fan of Wholefoods, it's convenient, but not for feeding my family.   My solution is to cut back every where I can and get quality food at the lowest price possible.  So once a month I place my order, wait a week and then when I get the call, drive out to this sad lot to pull my food off the back of the truck.
