Bits and pieces

I've finally decided to have a go with an old fashioned way of living, after wondering about it for a while. Tescos is easy, even more so for me, as it's at the end of the road, but I don't think that you always get the best by going to the supermarket, so I've decided that I'm going to try going to get fresh produce. I work in the city centre so it's easy for me to go to the covered market or indeed, as I did this lunchtime, the Wednesday market and buy fruit and veg, bread, and there's the organic butchers there too, so I'll be happy that all of my meat is at least relatively ethically sound.

Of course, there are still some things that I'll need to get from Tesco but because I cook almost all our meals from fresh ingredients, I should be able to do quite a good proportion of my shopping in town, spreading my cash around. There are also a few things that I have to think about, the one that springs to mind being cheese. Currently I buy Tesco half fat cheddar, because I'm on a diet. There are cheese stalls in the markets, but none of these do low fat cheeses. Instead, they do proper full flavoured interesting cheeses (like cheddar with chilli in it). So do I go on buying cheese from Tesco, or do I try and alter my diet so that I can fit in a few portions of fatty but exciting cheese instead?

Initially, I plan to try to do this for about a month and then we'll sit down and have a look at how it compares, both monetarily, and taste wise. Should be interesting at the very least and after wandering around the market this lunchtime I find myself hoping it goes well.
