    A Whopper meal is now approaching $6 - double the amount that we were originally talking about. I said $10....so you are coming in about $4 under what I said.
    I think there are some meals that you can make in that range...but that's pushing it.
    To make a truly nutritious meal for a family with three kids, I think you are pushing it for under $10.

    I don't shop at whole foods. Luckily....I have transportation and shop at least three different markets every week to get the best value I can.
    I shop Ralphs (Kroger), Vons (Safeway) and my local Ranch Market (for inexpensive produce). Sometimes I will drive to Albertson's if I see things I want in their ad.

    I am a frugal shopper and use coupons and do everything I can to stretch my budget, while still eating healthy.

    For a lot of people, its cheaper for them to run to Jack in the Box for 2 tacos for 99Cents....which is what raised this issue initially, the childhood obeisity problem.

    That said, many poor families don't have the same luxury that I have to shop 3 different markets. They rely on public transit and markets that are close to their homes.

    thanks to dear leaders 'Hope and Change' they are working two jobs, and 99 cent tacos might be all they can afford if they want heat this month.

    Thanks for that.

    So wouldn't that be because of poor urban planning in urban areas? These poor areas are not as dense as the demand would warrant (because zoning laws cap density). If you had enough people in a smaller area, you would get more markets, especially since these people aren't very mobile due to low income. The problem of not being able to eat healthy is because of the government.

    There are a number of issues. Oftentimes it is difficult to get the large supermarkets to build in poor areas. Its a cost/demand ratio. Many markets don't want to invest capital in areas where the spending power is low.
    As a result, usually the option that people in these areas have are to either trek to other areas in public transit and haul back their groceries, or shop the smaller markets near their homes that often charge much more than the larger markets because they don't have the volume and therefore cannot offer the same prices.

    Nice try, but it wasn't Obama that created the economic condition that we are in. If in seven years when he leaves office things are not improved, then absolutely you can say that he failed to improve the situation.

    1. These are probably lies.

    2. Republicans are more likely to be fiscally conservative than socially conservative, and just because they're usually both doesn't mean they all emphasize the latter. You both just only hear what you listen for.

    The Mayo Clinic disagrees with you....

    Caesar salad with grilled chicken - MayoClinic.com

    Those silly nutritionists at the Mayo Clinic actually believe that its a healthy meal. You should go there and set them straight. They must be starving their patients.
