This past Sunday I finally made it to the Hillcrest Farmers Market here in San Diego. I’d been wanting to attend for some time, and finally made a point of going. I had a great time, and loved the offerings for quality food! One of the best things about living in San Diego, is the year-round offerings of amazing food and markets. I’m making more of a point to attend and check them out, there are so many to choose from, and on each day of the week.
These were my purchases last week:
Having just received my Paderno Spiralizer and having loads of zucchini in the garden, I was really excited to get this pesto for a “pasta” sauce. The Happy Pantry, I loved! 5-6 kinds of homemade organic sauerkraut (I bought the spicy kimchee flavor after trying most of them), and can’t wait to have it with sausages, eggs, etc. On the bottom, some garlic and herb homemade goat cheese. It is pasteurized, but I’m okay with it now and then. It was so creamy and tasted amazing! This Saturday, I think we’ll try the Little Italy Mercato 🙂
Then, I ran into a booth that had a great selection of health foods, supplements, etc. and I was drawn in! Until…while talking to a couple of women at his booth he said, and I quote “30 days, and you can completely reverse type 1 diabetes.” Oh no. You cannot do that. I eat pretty raw already, and have been Paleo for 2 years, and while these things have drastically helped me manage my type 1 diabetes, at the end of each day, I still have it. Supplements don’t reverse the autoimmune reaction (nor do foods!). I took his card so I could reach out and share information, so that it will perhaps help him understand. This was one of those times where it really bothered me, but I didn’t have it in me to educate at the time.
