Today's post is short. I haven't shopped at a Whole Foods since August. Thought it would be hard to do, especially where I live, because there aren't any other health food stores nearby and my local grocery chains don't carry most of what I need. So I ended up ordering a lot of stuff online from Barry Farm and Pangea. They've got a ton of great stuff. But....I was almost considering shopping at WF again, at least for bulk grains,etc...and some frozen items. I'm not sure I can get myself to do it. I stopped going there after the whole John Mackey thing....and I also see WF as catering to the wealthy as opposed to the healthy.
So I'd like some opinions please. I wonder if it's cheaper or more expensive to buy the bulk grains there, rather than online. I wouldn't have to pay shipping, so maybe it would even out? And I'd like a bit more access to some specialty items and not have to wait for a once every 3 months online order....like some vegan cheese, etc. I know a lot of you still shop there and I just wonder if it would be awful for me to start again....it would be only once a month or less. Or am I caving in and giving up on my boycott? Or was I not making a difference anyway, since I'm only one.
