Finally … Amazon Slashes Prices at Whole Foods Market– Cuts That Actually Makes a Difference

For nearly a year I kept hearing how Amazon was going to slash prices ... But after each visit to the market, I was always disappointed.

Then they announced Prime Members would enjoy additional discounts.

So I happily downloaded the Whole Foods Market app and anxiously proceeded to the market to only save a whopping .15 cents. To date, the most I've ever saved with that app was .70 cents

So imagine my shock when I walked into Whole Foods Market and saw all of these orange signs highlighting new permanent pricing for produce I regularly buy...

A bunch of other websites and blogs are suggesting the price cuts are minimal ... But that's not what I saw.

95% of the stuff I buy from Whole Foods consist of fruits and vegetables. The other none produce related stuff consist of nuts, seeds, almond butter, whole grains, and the occasional Zevia drink.

So the big price cuts I saw were in the produce section ...

Which in my opinion, is the only stuff we should really be consuming if our goal is to reduce obesity and reverse chronic diseases like type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure and other food related illnesses.

I still have a ways to go in getting rid of my cravings for the occasional cookie, Zevia drink, and diet cola, but I'm making good progress each week; and thats due in part to cheaper mango prices at Whole Foods Market, lol.

Day 1: Weigh-In and Blood Glucose Check: It’s Time to Kick Diabetes & High Blood Pressure to the Curb

So today is the first day where I start this whole food, plant based lifestyle in an effort to reverse my type 2 diabetes, get off blood pressure medicine, and get my cholesterol level down to normal levels.

So here are my numbers for today:

Weight: 237.2 pounds
Blood Glucose: 206

As of today, I have not figured out a meal plan, but hope to get that resolved and sorted as I continue to move forward.

I didn’t want to make any more excuses to delay this, and figured I can correct course on the journey to ridding myself of these chronic diseases from toxic processed foods.
