the food we eat

I was in the grocery checkout line today, behind a family purchasing the following:

1x24-pack of soda
3 bags of various popcorn/potato chip/cheese puff things
1 box of chocolate chip cookies
1 box of toaster strudels
1 box of pop tarts
(a number of other incredibly manufactured foods)**
1 gallon of milk
1 huge container of spring greens

And I couldn't help thinking....what are the odds that the greens were going to end up rotting in the bottom of the fridge in a few days?

** I realize the significance of this post would be stronger if I could remember everything in the cart, but I was shopping with both little ones today
