I have to rant about this topic because I'm so sick of people claiming that they can't eat healthy because "healthy food is too expensive."
This is probably the biggest excuse I hear from people as to why they don't eat healthy... most people have a false impression that healthy food is too expensive. But I'll show you just why this is absolutely ridiculous.
Generally, people complain that prices are too high for foods such as:
*organic, free-range eggs vs standard supermarket eggs
*healthy, grass-fed meats instead of standard unhealthy grain-fed meats
*organic produce vs conventional produce (there are some times when this doesn't matter, which I'll talk about in an upcoming newsletter)
*cooking natural, unprocessed meals vs fast food meals
Here are some things to consider:
1. People complain about the price of organic free range eggs that are $3.50 per dozen. However, those same people will buy a $2.00 soda EVERY DAY of the week, which is nothing but chemicals and high fructose corn syrup.
The dozen eggs will give you several days worth of all of the B vitamins, selenium, phosphorus, and dozens of other vitmins and minerals that you need. The dozen eggs will also give you approximately 80-90 gms of some of the most bio-available protein available. Plus there's the healthy fats, omega-3's, lutein, and more.
I don't care if eggs went up to $10.00/dozen... it would still be a bargain!
Why don't more people just skip the $2.00 sodas that they drink each day and put that $60.00/month towards healthy food instead?
2. People complain about the price of healthy foods vs just getting fast food... meanwhile they pull up to the fast-food drive-in in their $50,000 car.
Where are the priorities? Obviously, this person is saying that their car is more important to them than their health. For some reason, they can't seem to understand that their car isn't gonna matter when they die of a heart attack!
Why not drive around a cheaper car and use the extra funds to buy healthier food?
3. People complain about the cost of healthy foods, so they resort to eating cheap junk food... meanwhile they are spending $200 ... Continue
