We know that it’s a scary world out there at the moment, and all of us are trying to find ways to stay as safe as possible and ease our anxieties in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. But many of the ways we are being advised to keep safe on social media – like washing our veggies in soapy water or leaving our groceries in the garage for 12 hours – can cause more harm than good.
You’re tired after a long day at work, the kids are moaning from the backseat and you can already envision the line of pre-dinner shoppers lining the supermarket aisles. Don’t panic! There’s no reason to dread buying groceries! With some clever planning you can be in and out of your local grocery in a flash.
While doing our rushed mid-week grocery shopping, most of us probably don’t give the label on our meat a second thought. Despite the extra effort, knowing whether the beef you are putting in your basket has been grass-fed or not, can make quite the difference, to the quality of your meal and the environment! Choosing a grass-fed cut of meat means that it will be both tastier and healthier, it also gives you a chance to support more humane methods of farming.
‘Buy in bulk and save’ is slapped on many a bargain-buy, but sadly, it ain’t always so. We tell you which groceries to stock up on and which to buy when you need.
