I found this graphic interesting: Why A Salad Costs More Than A Big Mac – The Consumerist.
I don’t know how accurate it is and if nothing else I’m sure people can quibble about the decimal points. At the same time, it’s hard to deny that eating healthier costs more. Even if you grow all your food yourself, that food will probably cost you more in hours than it would take you to earn the money to buy it. We spend less time and money on the food we need to survive than at any other point in history. Now we need to figure out how to eat well and not just how can we eat enough.
