November ninety – day fourteenPosted: November 15, 2013
Left my lunch at home so went shopping for crackers at lunchtime and saw a new place was opening today in town. Their shtick seems to be that everything contains chia seeds, which they say they won’t be charging an arm and leg for. They gave me a free smoothie. Originally it was sprinkled attractively with what I assume were chia seeds but I drank some before remembering to take a picture.
The place looks interesting but it’s a bit mysterious, because it’s been looking ready to open for months, so am very interested to see that not only is there a cafe-type-place on one side looking like it will have smoothies, pizzas, and other things, but across the shopping area is a sister shop selling bread and baked goods. They didn’t appear to have ingredient labels on, however. I will return to investigate when it’s not launch day!
Went on to buy crackers and tinned tomatoes at Currant Affairs, checked out a health-food-and-supplements shop down Silver Street and bought a big tub of herb salt to keep at work (also noticing they had an entirely new range of vegan sausages, which I inexplicably forgot to take a photo of and now can’t remember the name), then got 8 limes for 50p from the market. Total spend today £5.81, bringing total for month so far to £38.27.
