I am so fed up with food in this country. As a person who has struggled with her weight over the years, I feel like I’ve run the gamut on food and can comment on what the population of our country consumes. The portions and content of what we’re being served when we’re not eating in our own homes is quite simply disgusting.
Chris and I went grocery shopping on Sunday and bought with healthy minds. Instead of our $50 bill filled with Mac and Cheese, chips and soda, we had paid $150 for fresh fruits, vegetables and chicken. I had a moment when I saw that 1lb of grapes cost $7.00 because I realized that’s more than a value meal at McDonalds. One package of grapes cost more than an entire meal at a fast food place. What is wrong with this picture?
Access to affordable food that is healthy is expensive. There is no way around it. If you want to eat healthy, you have to cut out the cheap fast food and prepackaged meals at the grocery store, and buy things that have more quality to them. It’s so frustrating because there are so many people who WANT to eat healthy, they just simply can’t afford it.
Who comes up with this garbage?
I wish that healthy food was more economical and accessible. It’s so difficult to do the right thing when the right thing is barely within reach.
