The price of healthy food

Saturday, September 07, 2013

It occurred to me today as I was grocery shopping how we view the price of food. You often hear people say it is too expensive to eat healthy. I was thinking this as I picked up a bag of grapes that ended up costing over $4.00. Then I thought I wouldn't think anything about $5.00 for ice cream or $20.00 for a pizza. And in the end what is the real cost of junk/convenience food.

You will definitely pay for more for these items in the end with your health, with a lack of energy and lack of well being.

Next time you want to buy fruit or vegetables think would you question the price of the junk fo emoticon od?

    So very true. How often I've gone thru fast food drive thru and not even thought for a minute. Although that attitude is changing now that I'm eating healthier. I love buying especially at local farmer's markets but definitely have to shop around. Thanks for sharing.

    Now that is the way to put it into perspective! I rarely look at the price of my fruit, apples, nectarines and oranges, which are the basics because I have to have them.
    Thanks for that reminder on how much the other junk costs!
