2012 Food Challenge - No chain food stores

For the past three years I have done something to challenge ourselves for lent.  For the first two years Igave up meat.  As an avid meat eater, that was pretty hard core.  Last year I gace up all forms of bread (including things like pitta, flatbreads and even pizza).  That was tricky.

However, this year, I want to do something that was a proper challenge.  I have therefore decided to try and give up all chain foodstores.  Now, that includes all of the obvious stores - Tesco, Morrisons, Waitrose, Sainsburys, etc.  But it will also include the likes of Co-Op, Spar, Costcutter etc.  You get the picture!

Why, you might ask? Well.
