Trip to Jimbo's Natural Food Store

Lisa and I rode to Jimbo's using the short cut we found a couple of days ago. The ride was around 7 miles round trip and was enjoyable. We rode on the sidewalk because in general, the bike lanes do not feel safe. I like separation of cars and bikes especially on a road where the speed limit is over 45mph. I shot footage with the Helmet Cam.

Jimbo's is a wonderful supermarket. The produce looks amazing and while some of it is from distant places, a lot of it is local. I bought some broccoli and some grass fed organic beef. I have been reading the "THE OMNIVORE’S DILEMMA" by Michael Pollan and have been thinking a lot more about what I eat and what the environmental consequences are of what I choose to eat. Corn fed beef has more fat as well as more e coli and is raised in giant polluting feed lots.

“What should you eat? Michael Pollan addresses that fundamental question with great wit and intelligence, looking at the social, ethical, and environmental impact of four different meals. Eating well, he finds, can be a pleasurable way to change the world.” —Eric Schlosser, author of Fast Food

Which store did you ride to? I'm near the one in Carlsbad, i'm super interested in the route you picked if that's the one you rode to?

I rode to the one in 4S Ranch... which is Rancho Bernardo. But the short cut saved a lot of riding. Keep looking for the easy routes!
