    How many people want the government to tell grocery stores what to sell, cookbook companies what to print, and parents what's on the menu? Come on, raise your goddamn hands up high!

    im not exactly rich now but i eat healthier than when i was a kid,to say healthy food is cheaper your wrong,to say its not too expensive youd be right,but to alot of families that little bit extra is a little bit more than they can afford.

    Exactly how long ago are you talking about?

    Spaghetti isn't unhealthy at all. You got your starch, your protein, and your veggie all in one.

    i never said spaghetti was unhealthy,but my point was how can someone expect fruit vegetables and diversity if they cant aford more than spaghetti,sauce like 75 cents a can generic,and noodles if you buy in bulk can last a month for a poor family for $12 a month.

    i will not deny there are those who choose not to eat healthy,in my old apartment i had 3 roommates the one from geargia loved that i made fresh food.the one from west virginia would play chemist with all my food throw it out and waste his money at jack in the box then tell me he cant afford rent.the one from nevade refused for 3 months to eat anything i or anyone else cooked ad would only eat fast or frozen food,after the first time he ate my food he suddenly begged for it everynight.

    In my state over 70% of the adult population is overweight: no - they do not know about healthy eating habits to the point of being able to impliment it in a family diet or *wanting* to impliment it.

    Southern foods are notoriously unhealthy and though veggies are also done southern style they're not in enough of a variety without added sugar, fats and oils to be worth it: corn doesn't count.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    but can anyone say no to fried catfish fried hushpuppies or buscuits and gravy that contains more lard than the rest of the ingredients combined?

    You're wrong. The healthiest foods, like whole grain brown rice, for example, is cheap as dirt. And, bonus time, it actually grows as you cook it.

    Potatoes, you can get them for less than 50 cents a pound. Lentils, cheap as dirt, huge amount of protein, very healthy.

    Its smart to take the above foods and mix a little of the high fat foods with them. But most people base their meals on a meat main dish, and the other stuff is secondary.

    Do you think people honestly don't know that fried foods are unhealthy?

    but youre taking individual prices and not adding them up into a single meal,give me your monthly food budget and ill give you what i used to work with when i blew all my money on weed.

    I agree that healthy food isn't always expensive. Have you seen how much a bag of Doritos or a box of Fruit Loops is lately? Whoa!
