While at work today, I had the strangest thought as I watched people stroll by with their large Slurpee's and bags of chips from the convenience store next door. Let's face it, those stores are basically "Bad For You" stores. Cigarettes, sugar drinks, sugar snacks, hot dogs, taquitoes, and all other sorts of un-holistic items. I guess I should mention they have a basket of fruit... but still, it isn't a place where people would run into to grab something healthy.
And then my crazy, hair brained, obviously on drugs, kind of thought comes to me. What if convenience stores were actually health stores... Crazy right?
Imagine that someone runs inside to quickly grab a banana, or a basket of blueberries, or a fruit smoothie. Instead of picking through a bag of chips, people munch away on a bag of strawberries.
Instead of paying only $1.49 for a large slurpee, you pay that for some slices of pineapple (Which cost about $4-5 in the grocery store.
To keep this neurotic thought going, I imagined that grocery stores were the places that were full of the unhealthy alternatives and snacks (I mean more than they have already, think of it as a sugar stop). And instead of people paying ridiculously cheap prices for oreos, chocolate bars or ready-made microwave meals, they pay the same steep prices that are placed on fruits and vegetables (especially organic or responsible companies).
Apparently I need more sleep at night, or more things to do during a work day.
