    Dropping the knowledge. Healthy food isn’t more expensive than fast food. The only thing it can’t give you is the motivation to succeed.

    This is great and all but food prices do change depending on location and supply and people tend to forget that a lot…
    Like I can’t buy a mango in AZ for the same price as I could in CA. Meat, dairy, produce, and eggs are all subject to change because a lot of factors go into their price.
    Also I dunno about you but I haven’t found chicken breast for that cheap in like two years. Chicken thighs maybe.

    So yeah I mean you can potentially eat healthier for the same price as eating out, but let’s not false advertise here. A lot of it comes down to buying in bulk, comparing prices at other stores, recognizing what common produce your state (or anything else I don’t know how other countries handle this type of thing) has to offer, and being smart about what you buy (coupons, rewards cards for stores, etc).

    Okay, I have to throw my two cents in here as well.

    When it comes down to it, most families that do resort to fast food are often quite aware that buying food to prepare is cheaper. But try working two jobs to support your family and then coming home to cook a meal as well. I’ve been there. You often don’t even want to drag yourself off to the shower much less stand in the kitchen for another hour and prepare food. I’m not saying this is true for everyone, but many people who do choose easier to prepare foods/fast food are paying for the convenience and quite happy to do so.

    I get that people want the convenience, but it really doesn’t take an hour to prepare a meal for a family. I learned how to cook from my mother, and I can whip up grilled chicken and vegetables in 10, 15 minutes tops. I do it before I go to class in the mornings. When I get back, I take 5 minutes to dump some lettuce into a container with a few tomatoes and carrots before I go to work at night. I really don’t spend a lot of time prepping food.

    lets not forget the time it takes to prepare all those “healthier foods”. one of the main reasons people eat out, namely lower income families, is because theyre working multiple jobs and have little time for anything else. 

    eating healthy is important but it can also get costly and time consuming. this entire infographic is also relying the purchase of fast food being the most expensive things on the menu. the dollar menu exists for a reason and drastically cuts price, so there is still a high calorie meal for a lot less.

    lets not forget that half the war on fast food is war on the poor.

    The “I don’t have time to cook” excuse is massively overstated. I work a 9 hour night shift followed by a full day of classes, and I can throw some chicken in a pan with frozen vegetables and have a meal ready to eat in 10 minutes, a little bit over the amount of time it would take to find a drive-thru, order, and get food. Putting together a salad for saves time and money that would be spent on gas to get to a fast food place and back on lunch break.

    It’s also not rocket science. All you need for a fully-cooked, nutritious dinner is a single burner and a pan. Even on minimum wage, I can afford that much.

    also it’s pretty classist to assume everyone has the time to actually cook food. cooking can take a while and a lot of lower-class people don’t have that time

    Lol don’t talk to me about not having time. I’m taking a full load of college courses and I work full time at night. It takes literally 10 minutes to steam some vegetables and grill some chicken, and maybe 5 to clean up after yourself. 

    "Not having time" is an excuse, not a reason.
