as if i don’t have enough on my plate i seem to think it is a good idea to over complicate things by having a schedule for our milk buying. yes, a schedule. it’s a dilemma people.
here’s our milk rotation:
snowville creamery – gets delivered to us in our green bean delivery. pros are that it is local, grass grazed, less pasteurized, very tasty. cons = not organic, packaged in cardboard which is not reusable even though it’s recyclable, a bit on the pricey side, and only available in 2% and whole. we lean towards 1%.
stay with me. it gets better.
hartzler dairy – this used to be our go to in the grocery but now our closest store doesn’t carry it since we moved. but i just saw that hartzler was added to green bean so now things are going to get even trickier. pros = grass fed, local, extremely tasty, packaged in glass deposit bottle that is reused. no waste home friendly. cons = priciest option and out of the way to obtain. also not organic. only available in skim, whole, and 2%. rats.
wait for it…
nature’s basket 1% and soy milk – this is what we now pick up when we run out in between our green bean delivery. i just juggle back and forth between cow’s milk and soy. i can’t make a decision. which one is more ethical? which one will save the world the most? which one is better for our bodayyyys? i can’t handle the pressure!!!!
ok anyway i’m bored with typing all these pros and cons out. you get my drift. you now see how this is completely insane that i actually put mental thought into these choices but sometimes i feel like the weight of the next 7 generations depends on which milk jug i choose. why? because of that damn 7th generation slogan, that’s why. and because i care goshdangitalltohell. because i really do believe that the products i buy today will effect tomorrow.
you know that lady who’s been standing in the milk aisle for 10 minutes just staring at the rows and rows of milk. that’s me. if you see me, for the love of Jove, please just pick up the carton closest to you and put it in my hand and then push me onward to more pressing matters.
this life of trials and tribulations is not for everyone, but it’s the path i’m destined to walk. don’t cry for me, Argentina.
*obviously this is a first world problem and i’m providing this little write-up for proof and parody that this way of life is insane. and i’m insane. we’re all insane. yes, even you. now go forth an do good deeds. be bold and mighty forces will come to your aide.
