Me with my Costco-sized bag of kettle corn.
Last night, Frank and I were walking around Costco, happily munching on some non-GMO kettle corn we found in the snack aisle… (Do you know how LONG it’s been since I’ve had kettle corn???) …when we came upon the giant pallets of organic cold-pressed unrefined coconut oil.
We began to price-compare to see if this was cheaper than anything online (it is), and while we were standing there, calculator-in-hand, a family walked up—a mom, dad, three kids, and a baby—and observed us talking about price differences.
“Do you know of somewhere cheaper to get it?” the mother asked me from across the aisle.
“Nope,” I said. “This is the cheapest you’ll find it.”
As I observed the family, I noticed that everything in their cart was something that I would buy! And that NEVER happens!
Ever awkward at social moments, I blurted out, “This popcorn is non-GMO, in case you’re interested. And it’s made with cane sugar and sea salt. Still a junk food, nonetheless, but as close as I’ll come to eating a junk food directly out of the package!”
Despite my awkward conversation starter, we started to chat.
“Are you from around here?” they asked.
“No, we just come to Costco for a few organic things,” said Frank. They did, too, traveling from over an hour away.
“Have you heard of Weston Price?” I asked.
They didn’t hear me, so I repeated, “WESTON PRICE?”
What came out of the mother’s mouth just tickled me to death! She immediately grinned, gestured toward the baby in dad’s arms and said, “Oh, he’s my first Nourishing Traditions baby!”
We lapsed into talking about pastured poultry, raw milk, liver, and other such things. :) Which is why I agree with Sarah, The Healthy Home Economist, when she says, “Raw milk drinkers are everywhere!” It’s true! :)
