Just as the key to a successful dinner party is the positioning of the guests around the dinner table, the positioning of the items in your shopping trolley can make real difference (especially to us mushrooms).
What kind of shopper are you?
As you meander through the supermarket aisles, do you carefully place each item down or do you smash and grab like a contestant on supermarket sweep?
We think a more considered approach is needed to ensure that harmony is kept within the trolley or shopping cart. Do you create sections within the trolley to separate the tinned goods from the dairy, or would you not think twice about piling a bag of potatoes on top of your eggs?
Fruit and vegetables
We can’t lie; things are a little bit awkward between us mushrooms and the fruit and vegetables at the moment.
The apples and pears are jealous because technically, we are neither fruit nor vegetable (but fungi).
The potatoes and carrots wish they were as good a meat substitute as mushrooms, but they just haven’t got as meaty a texture.
Now don’t get us wrong, we’re a sociable food stuff, but as you can see, there can be a great deal of animosity. It’s not our fault we’re so delicious and versatile!
Pride of place in the shopping trolley
How do you decide which item gets pride of place in your trolley? Which section is reserved for that most special of produce?
We think that special place needs to be awarded to a “super food”. Here’s a quick five-point checklist to help you decide:
|Good source of fibre?|
|Rich in anti-oxidants?|
|Low in calories, yet rich in vitamins and minerals?|
|One of your 5 a day?|
|Helps you feel fuller for longer?|
Now we mushrooms don’t want to appear to be too demanding, but if you aren’t going to give us the most prominent position, we really must insist on being carried in your arms whilst all the other items remain in the trolley.
