15 Signs that You are a “REAL Foodie”

Do you ever feel a little bit “different” because of your affection for real, natural foods?

Perhaps we should take a little time out from time to time to laugh at ourselves a bit from the perspective of those who aren’t quite so “into” this sort of thing.

After all, for the most part they think we’re nuts (and in my case, they really aren’t too far off – hee, hee!).

So, here are a few “red flags” that you’re a full-fledged “foodie”…just in case you thought you were fooling anyone.

A Peek Inside My Grocery Cart

Here’s what I ended up with this week at Costco! Best deal EVER on organic quinoa!! That product, alone, pays for my membership! (Click photos to enlarge!) That’s a FOUR POUND bag, people! Not the tiny little box you find at most stores for 4 bucks! And the maple syrup is the cheapest I’ve seen in town, too! Same is usually true for the ginormous pinepples and bell peppers, lemons and limes!
