Ian Somerhalder Shocked Shoppers with His Healthy Groceries

Ian Somerhalder is fired up after shoppers in a grocery store told him that they had never seen someone with such healthy food in their basket as he did.

The 40-year-old actor took to Instagram account to share a photo of all the greens he purchased along with a message to inspire healthy eating.

“I hope I don’t come off as an ass… A woman just stopped me in the grocery store and told me that she had never seen a basket like mine,” Ian wrote. “I told her that I have never NOT seen this type of basket in my grocery-shopping behavior. A few others chimed in saying that it was a very strange sight! WTF ?A strange sight? I’m in a grocery store. It’s food.”

“It got me thinking and really fired up…I hear in the news constantly, in legislative bodies debating and the public complaining out right bitching about healthcare costs, drug companies and doctors and what rising costs do to our society, our lives and our economy,” Ian continued. “I know our system isn’t great. Yet, the public poisons itself daily with bad food choices. Food is medicine and medicine is food. It’s a fact. If we want to see our healthcare system changed, be a healthier society- and it will. How does that sound? Logical right?”

“I don’t mean to sound like a d–k- or preachy but this is nuts: how is it, that grown professional people in a major American city have never seen a grocery basket full of normal & healthy foods that just all happen to be green or not processed?” Ian said. “We’re so far down the rabbit hole of packaged and ‘convenient’ foods that our society is paying the price & so is our future. No one in our government is helping us be healthier through education. Why would they? Sick people are GREAT for business…”

“It’s pretty simple: If you want to look well, feel well and BE well- just eat well. Obviously exercise as well, as much as you can. Everything else will start to fall into place,” Ian said. “My mom raised me on no money & mostly as a single parent yet, she still ate well & exercised and it shaped my life. We make excuses why we can’t find the time to take care of ourselves and we end up past the point of no return… Why is that? How is it that we can’t see that: Happy and healthy people make a happy and healthy world. It’s hard to see that through a fog of prescription drugs, energy drinks & strong sleep aids. It’s hard I know, but its time to change. You wouldn’t put the wrong gas in your car, so why would you put wrong food in your body? We MUST take responsibility for what we put into our bodies starting now. We can do it. Ok. I’ll stop. Thnks.”

    He is 100% right. It is not very hard to make healthier choices and a lot cheaper then medical bills. There is plenty of healthy choice around and they don’t have to be organic either which he never mentioned and some people using for excuses.
