Which came first, the supplement or the ailment?

At the health 'food' store

I needed a snack the other day, and the first thing I saw was Mother's Market. I figured it was going to be like Whole Foods or Bristol Farms, but when I got inside, I was lost. 

There was a very small produce section, and the deli counter stocked all the fake meat "meat" dishes you could think of, but nothing more meaty than tuna or egg salad.  I like tuna and egg salad, but it was a tiny amount on a huge roll, all for about $7. I passed, but not before walking down a few aisles out of curiosity.

There was a small book section, where a good 50% of the books were on the subject of detox and cleanses. Seriously. I wish I'd thought to snap a picture.

The percentage of people who looked unhealthy was on par with a supermarket. I think it's rude to take pictures of people for my insidious purposes (blogging).  There weren't as many fat people, though.  They just looked unhealthy.  Frail and weak, but with pot bellies.

There was space for bulk food bins (granola, oats, dried fruit, quinoa, etc), shampoos and things like that, I think I walked the whole place, but in retrospect, I missed the meat section. I assume it was there. I did see eggs.

The next section actually took up about 1/4 to 1/3 of the store. 

I missed the end caps, and another 2-3 good shots, but I had to stop because I was getting the stink eye.

On the way out, I got a free sample of vegan soap, so there's that.

  1. Was it made from real vegans? Just like Fight Club!
