Quick and fresh

Do our diets reflect a supermarket layout or do supermarkets reflect our diet? I am tipping it’s a little of both but when you look at the amount of space dedicated to processed foods compared to that given to fresh foods the lack of balance is very obvious. Most of us dash in and out looking for quick and convenient options, but what could be more quick and convenient than being able to do the majority of your shopping in just 10% of a supermarket floor plan? By buying fresh instead of packaged, you will do exactly that. So next time you reach for a tin of canned peaches or a foil sealed tub of fruit, think about a fresh, preferably organic, option. You will also be buying less packaging, less processing and therefore less chemicals as well.
