Whole Foods

Hahaha, this cracked me up this morning. Hopefully it will crack you up to.

Pretty funny read, I can't fucking stand Whole Foods nor the people who shop there. I went in once, and that was already more than enough.

I beeline to the meat and fish counters, and then run right out.

Organic food is the way to go though. With all the GMO's and chemicals/hormones in our foods, I can't believe that it doesn't affect us negatively. It's pricey but worth it. I shop at a more up-scale location so the people look more normal though, but there are still a couple of white women with dreads working there. Haha.

I go to whole foods every Thursday.

Why?

Simple, I fill a growler(or two) with local/imported craft beer for $8 since its $4 off any growler fill on Thursday. Best Deal Ever.

I buy nothing else.

Garage List
Whole Foods = Organic, unwaxed fruit. Then out the door. Trader Joe's is cheaper and has better stuff, at least in Indy. WF might be better in bigger metro areas.

Its all the same shit. They just say organic. If you want fresh meat go to a butcher. If you want fresh veggies grow them.

Yeah but that butcher is getting meat that's unnatural because it's filled with growth hormones.

Not if you find a good one. Or do what I do and buy a whole cow that you know has been fed right

OMG same here. I go to the gym then stop by WF which is three miles east of it and nearly every time there's someone from the gym I saw that night shopping.

You sure abut that? The downtown Austin, TX Whole Foods is their flagship store. It's 80,000 and as of a few years ago it was tied for the largest Whole Foods in the world.

Oh and BTW it's .5 miles from my apartment

EDIT- I see the one you're talking about now. 86,000 square ft. Fuck it, I'm flying to Cali

Hell yea! I got Hofbrau Hefe last night for $8 which is a great Vienna brew.

I would suggest you check or call a local one to see if they have a bar with taps and if they have deals.

hahah the only reason why i know about that is because they kept advertising it when the place opened up. I keep telling myself to not shop there anymore because it kills my paycheck but I've gotten so used to their products and they literally have everything i need.

It's nice...just so damn overpriced. GMO foods have not been shown to be dangerous, and are often safer since they require fewer fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides. There's only been one study suggesting danger (the French rat study) and it has been throughly debunked. Never passed peer review.

I'd prefer not to have feedlot hormone and antibiotic laden meet though, but am seldom willing to pay the premium. Man...the beef I had in Argentina was amazing. They put limits on how much they're allowed to export though. Economic genisus they are!
