Is it true that healthy food is more expensive that junk food?

Is it true that healthy food is more expensive that junk food?

Depends on variables: Junk food is often cheeper because it is mass produced, filled with preservatives & can stay in a usable form for extended periods. It may also be refined from lesser quality food sources that would not sell in the market. Compare this to fruits and vegatables with a limited shelf life & transport costs that must speed the product to market. Grow your own or shop smart and you can cut costs. ...Read more

I love healthy food but spouse loves junk food. How do we meet in the middle? I try to encourage him (sometimes nagging). How do I find a good medium?

Nagging: Nagging is the worst thing to do when one wants to inspire a spouse. You have to think of him as an addict. It is not your right or place to change him. It is also not wise to let his bad choices cause you to eat poorly. Be honest about what you feel about his risks but leave it there. ...Read more
