Now a days all things are not like 20 years before because of the changes in the universe. All status also changed due to climate changes, overpopulation, money minded with new technology (adding colour in the vegetable, fruits and big in size ) good look no nutrition.

For us the cost is not a factor. The problem here is that restaurants don't use local produce very much and servings are way too big.

You have to work harder to find sales on "healthy" food. It's all about your priorities.

If you consider the added costs of advertisement, processing and overheads, fast food can't be cheaper than the unprocessed food. Only the problem with natural healthy foods are that they are to be adopted with a determination in tough competition from of the shelf - easy to swallow fast/junk food.

Truly, it is our irrational life style that is the reason for eating unhealthy food and many unhealthy spendings.

Healthy food:
Breakfast - eggs, milk with coffee bacon or ham with toast and polished down with a glass of fresh orange/or nay other fruit juice.
Lunch - Freshly cooked mutton or fish or chicken with chappattis and lots of vegetables curd dal;(lintel) and half a bowl of salad.
dinner - baked fish or roasted chicken with boiled vegetables and a simple dinner roll folowed by a very smallglass of liquer.
Exercise and you are fit....
Fortunately we get everything fresh.

It's hard to know what foods are genetically modified, for many people that don't know just how to make that determination. Too bad y'all spent money against those efforts in California, "Kellogg’s (Donated $791k): Kashi, Bear Naked, Morningstar Farms, Gardenburger" http://www.organicconsumers.org/articles/article_26621.cfm.

I agree with Phil, GMO's, Monsanto and all genetically modified and pesticides that go into our food is unacceptable, homegrown is the best, but as I am unable to garden due to disability that is out of the question now. e.g. strawberries I love, homegrown were luscious and sweet, used nothing else but cow manure, at Supermarkets yuk, once in a blue moon can you find a nice juicy sweet strawberry, the rest are either small and tasteless or HUGE and tasteless like they have been in a coolroom...

A loaf of nice bread $4.50 cheaper no name $2.59 a sliced loaf. It all depends on how much one family can afford to live on that is the crux of the matter, we would all like to eat healthy, nutritious food but not everybody can, one last e.g. Aussie king prawns $32.00 a kg, from Asia $10 kg so what would a family buy the cheaper wouldn't they. I cook a lot from scratch because I am an old lady of 71 and have always cooked, maybe a takeaway once a week, once every two weeks, KFC, pizza etc. I have to read every label on everything, takes me 2-3 hours of shopping in one supermarket, get home and then I am puckered out.

I'm vegan, & I feel in the long run it cost, & convenience balance out.....The most important factor is preventing the slaughter of thousands if not millions of animals...
