I eat müsli pretty often, we have some great stuff here

also, it's delicious to just make your own. but is it really worthwhile?

pre-chunked chicken breast cuz i don't have time to cut stuff

...not really

but that isn't what i meant, i meant you can get all kinds of leaves in a mixed salad bag but you can't buy the individual leaves, shit like that, it's annoying

maybe i should check out whole foods some day cause sometimes i watch american cooking shows and they show grocery sections that are fucking rammed with different stuff

waitrose is ok but their stock is like, normal shit organic shit and gimmicky shit like spherical courgettes

i'm talking like an idiot

i mean you can get frisee as part of a mixed salad but not on its own

well alright

i'm curious to know why you think general freshness hasn't improved despite advances in pretty much every aspect of growing/distribution/whatever

of course it's imrpoved in general but 'food is fresher than ever' isn't true in every sense of the phrase

the technology is used both for getting stuff into stores as quickly as possible and for making it last as long as possible, only the former goal has a direct bearing on peak freshness

you can't call the cream you buy in supermarkets fresh for instance it lasts for a bajillion years

i don't know about that

time to spoil ostensibly affects taste more than time since production does

some things you can buy 'fresh' from the grocery section have obviously degraded significantly compared to the stuff you get from the freezer section

i know that's how people use it but not having been made a long time ago seems a bit of an arbitrary thing to care about in and of itself

for sure

but i mean

we've always been able to eat stuff at peak freshness granted the means and the timing, the technology still isn't there to deliver that experience consistently to anyone who shops at tesco

yeah i know some stuff is never at peak freshness but we're moving in that direction; we're still fresher than say ten years ago

also it seems like when i buy filtered milk it has a longer shelf-life

but my instinct is that filtering is some bullshit that does nothing

What are supermarkets like in the UK cause you can buy the bagged salad or go thru the aisles full of produce pretty much anywhere here.
