Nutrition Baskets: No.1

It has come to my attention that when it comes to vitamins, minerals and their sources, my brain is a sieve. No matter how hard I try to retain the information, those fact just elude me like posh person eludes a hooligan. I’m not a hooligan, but trying to convince those facts of it is beyond my capabilities.

Thus, I have created a spreadsheet. Yes, a spreadsheet with columns and rows and sidebar numbers. It’s the only way I’ll be able to keep record of what’s what in the vitamin and mineral world. My document is still a very long way from completion, but one day, when I’m 92½, it will be done, and it will be my pride and joy and I shall name it ‘Scruffy’.

The point is, I am in the process of making such a spreadsheet that will help me to buy the right kinds of foods with the nutrition that I need as a woman. You see, fresh fruit and vegetables are expensive where I am. I just can’t afford to buy a variety of them, so I have to make sure that when I buy broccoli, for example, it must contain what I need personally. So, my little document will help me to see which vitamins and minerals I need, where their sources are, and where to buy them in Cape town at inexpensive prices.

I know this must seem like such a strange little post, but it’s what I have been thinking about, and it’s something that I might share with you once it’s done. Maybe. I’ll keep the purchase places blank, though. You can fill that out yourself according to where you live. Yes? Okay.
