this is what i just picked up from the grocery store. it cost $32. Thirty. two. dollars. for 1 pineapple, 2 bags of grapes, a small container of raspberries, 1 soft drink and 2/$1 nuts….
do you know how much junk food i could have for $32? do you have any clue how much McDonald’s you can get for $32?
stop shaming fat people poorer than you or people poorer than you in general for not eating healthier. stop lying about how cheap it is or how it’s comparable to fast food. just stop.
Fun fact, the cheapest food you can buy on the shelf today is Maruchan Raman noodles, which come at about 23 cents per pack.
Now lets take a look at the nutritional facts on a pack of Maruchan Raman:
How remember, there are TWO servings per block which is a whopping:
- 380 CALORIES! That’s the same as a mcdouble from Mcdonalds at 1/5th the price.
- 14 grams of fat
- 52 grams of carbohydrates
- 1.5 grams of sodium! More than half of an entire day’s worth!
- 5 grams of protein
- NO VITAMINS, ONLY IRON
Add in the fact that a bottle of orange juice is almost 4$ BUT SODA IS ROUGHLY 1$ - and you get the perfect recipe for malnourishment
