  1. First: I do not know if this is the appropriate forum, so any mods feel free to move this... It's kind of a "woot" as I have overcome my innate lazyness, but it might also fit into the general fitness or the dieting realm. Or some ranger stuff, who knows. so here is the story: I like cars. I like my car, especially. And so I like it's engine. Most engine wear occurs on start-up, once the engine is running at operating temperature, there is no significant wear whatsoever. Read: cross country drives (btw.: That's why myUOAs come back so nice). Doing the grocery shopping by car means two engine starts without the engine ever getting to operating temperature. Not good. Hurts my heart. (Im a car nerd - with a capital N.) But my bike has no luggage rack (and cycling with a big, heavy backpack is no fun). So -what else can I do, if I do not want to use the car? Of course: walk. I might split the grocery shopping into several smaller trips and just walk there. But then, the nearest shop is a tad expensive, and the cheaper Aldi a bit far off my usual routes. Inconvenient. But basically, that's what I would do: just walk there, grab some bags with stuff, walk back. Several times a week. (And pay to much). When I was young, I walked a lot. The army had us walk a lot. all while carrying heavy stuff. And then I stumbled upon the fitness fad of rucking - basically, grab a backpack, put something heavy inside, walk briskly and call it exercise. (And feel cool doing so.) So that was obvious. Why the hell didn't I get this earlier? Grab rucksack. Grab a second bag. Walk 30min to store. Fill shopping cart. Fill content of shopping cart into rucksack and bag. Walk home. Voilà: One old army backpack, a sturdy bag and a sack of apples. This unpacks as follows: 2.5kg potatoes 2kg apples 0.5 litre olive oil 0.25 litre linseed oil 1 litre of milk 6 cans of tuna 2 cans of red beans 500g sourdough bread 500g spaghetti 500g feta 500g chicken breast 500g ground beef 500g of curd 350g herring 300g Nürnberger Würtschen (Nürnberg sausages) 250g of bacon 500g of spinache 3 bell peppers 3 jars of marmalade 2 salami 1 iceberg lettuce 1 broccoli 1 cucumber 1 net of red onions 1 net of garlic 12 eggs 60g oregano 60g thyme Humans can carry a lot of stuff. While all this on the picture is a lot of stuff, it s not particularly heavy. (The things they make you carry in the army are heavier.) It just seems bulky, but if you pack intelligently, all this fits into a small backpack and a small shopping bag (the apples came with their own bag, fortunately). Earn your meals! If a middle-aged, overweight bloke like me can, so can you. . :-)
