#9 – Quitting Supermarkets: Practical and Ethical Concerns

I spent a lot of my time researching and making connections with people to find my sources of food, and that takes time. – Alison

Not like I really knew what I was doing, I never know what I’m doing. – Andrea

Once it is ready, the bouza course we referred to will be loaded to the courses page on Alison’s blog, Ancestral Kitchen

“The chocolate book” we alluded to is The Secret Life of Chocolate by Marcos Patchett

In this podcast, Alison is asking us to help hold her accountable to leaving the super market! Feel free to leave comments on Instagram and ask us (both!) how it’s going!

I think I’m on a soapbox right now. – Andrea

Why We Get Fat by Gary Taubes for more fascinating information on the strategy and science behind supermarkets.

Here’s an idea that we didn’t mention on this episode but you will hear more about later – share your farm and farmer’s market and direct market hauls with the hashtag #bringbackhighstreet !

Shannon Hayes interview on a podcast where she talked about shoppers at the farmer’s market

For my journey, the basics aren’t more expensive if you change what you expect and your habits. Bulk grains are cheaper than bread, offal is cheaper than meat. – Alison

To see how we changed some of our habits to accommodate eating better on a budget, check out this past episode: 5 Most Expensive (and yet, the cheapest!) Foods!

By talking about this I’m not trying to browbeat somebody into making a decision or a choice, what I’m trying to do is reveal to them what perhaps they weren’t aware of. – Andrea

Do you know how to leave us a review? Obviously as you heard at the end of this episode, neither of us have it figured out yet. If you know how to leave a review, we appreciate it!!!! (Also can you tell us how it’s done?!)

We’d love to continue the conversation. Come find us on Instagram:
