this is what i just picked up from the grocery store. it cost $32. Thirty. two. dollars. for 1 pineapple, 2 bags of grapes, a small container of raspberries, 1 soft drink and 2/$1 nuts….
do you know how much junk food i could have for $32? do you have any clue how much McDonald’s you can get for $32?
stop shaming fat people poorer than you or people poorer than you in general for not eating healthier. stop lying about how cheap it is or how it’s comparable to fast food. just stop.
First off, I’d like to mention that none of this is really what I’d call healthy. All you’ve got is fruit and a couple packs of nuts which isn’t going to give your body any vital nutrients besides some fiber and a meager amount of protein, not to mention- fruits are saturated with sugars.
Secondly, Bags of grapes are usually HELLA expensive anyways, sometimes upwards of 4-6$ a pound and that isn’t cheap when we’re talking 3-5 lb. bags. Also, pineapples and raspberries also tend to be on the expensive side too so lets not forget that. Am I saying the price is acceptable? No way, fruit is terribly overpriced but that’s besides the point.
The thing I’m trying to say here is hey, there’s other ways to eat healthy besides expensive produce. Buy yourself the things that COUNT, save up for a small rice cooker, eat rice. It’s dirt cheap and it fills you up. Buy frozen vegetables, eat them with your rice! Buy canned beans, black, pinto, kidney- they have so much protein and other healthy nutrients! Splurge your cash on meats, only eat meat when you have to. Eat leafy veggies for your other essential nutrients~ get creative!! Do RESEARCH. I promise you, recipes are there online for affordable options, and there’s plenty!!!
Don’t go to the big health food stores unless you have to. All of these things can be bought in walmart. Eating healthy doesn’t mean buying into flashy products that claim they are saving you somehow, eating healthy doesn’t have to be expensive, you CAN break the system. Pay attention to the products your body NEEDS and DON’T KEEP PAYING MONEY FOR FOOD THAT DOESN’T FULFILL YOUR BODY’S NEEDS.
