I have a tantrum for you today, and boy am I upset! I have been trying to eat healthier and loose some weight, but here is my dilemma - it is very expensive to eat healthy!
The more FRESH foods I get and the more UNprocessed things I buy the more my food bill goes up! I know that it is healthier to eat a REAL FRESH green beans for dinner, but the FRESH frozen are actually cheaper - and even more so when you add in a coupon!
So here is my question, how can it be cheaper to eat healthy? I DON'T have room for a garden. I DO shop at my farmer's market. I DO use fresh bags to help keep my fresh food FRESH longer.
For those of us who are trying, why is it so expensive? Why is it cheaper to go to McDonald's and by a 29 cent hamburger than to make a sandwich? Why is it about the same to make chicken at home as it is to BUY a bucket at drive through? And cookies? I can buy a whole pack of them for the price of the four I would need to make them from scratch.
In the end I am just wondering if I am alone. Does anyone have any idea of what can help with this? I know this can't just be ME!
This is the outfit that Aye picked for photo day yesterday - oh my, she is just growing up toooooo fast!
Today I am featuring sweetemmajean. Her fresh fruit and veggies are crafted by hand and don't THEY look good? I just love what this mother had done to 'keep sharp'. Starting with shoes for her little ones, she has really developed some great pattern. Please go visit her and remember to let her know where you heard about her!
There wont be any hops again today, I have just so many things in the works.... new creations, laundry to do, house cleaning to do...... maybe tomorrow!
Thought for the day - BE HAPPY! ~KM
