Wealthy to be Healthy?

Have you ever noticed that organic foods are always more expensive than other regular food products. Or that a bag of baked chips costs more than your average salty ones. Or that going to a fast food restaurant is way cheaper than going to one with more healthier choices.

Everyone always tells you to eat healthy, to have a healthy body. It's easy, just eat from the four food groups, and eat other snack foods in moderation. But when healthier foods become pricey, and unhealthier foods are more reasonably priced, is it still so easy to make the right decisions when you're at the grocery store?

With the rising economy, costs shoot up too. Many are faced with this difficult food decision everyday. Some find it hard to even get food to survive.

Well, we've already established that money doesn't grow on trees. So now what? What's the solution? Get a good job, earn big bucks, and then you can buy every healthy food product you see? No.

People like you and me can help. We can all be the solution. We can help those who are less fortunate. God uses people everyday to help others! Let God use you.

We were made to help each other, and it's not that hard! Volunteer at food banks and food drives. You could solve people's food dilemmas by simply lending a helping hand. Eat healthy and help others do it too! You don't have to be wealthy to be healthy.

  1. Interesting post. My family (my mom and I, basically) don't go to fast food places at all; I rarely eat chips, etc. If you stick to certain areas of the grocery store, then you can still be healthy for a low price.

    Organic foods are regulated more, but an apple rinsed with vinegar to remove pesticides is just as good as an organic one.
