When did the myth that eating unhealthy processed foods is cheaper than eating healthy?
I see this comment once a week on the OT and it's common sentiment. It's also absolutely wrong and an excuse for you fatasses to stay lazy and fat

Chicken is like $3-4/lb
Produce is cheap, typically less than $1 per serving, not much more even if you buy the frozen steamables. I eat nothing but fresh food, and a lot of it, for like $200/month.

Fast food on the cheap end is still, what, $6 or more than 2 meals made of chicken and produce.

Stuff like cheez itz are $5 or more for a box and you'll never feel full. At least that much for the shitty sugar laden "granola bars"

Baws, open your eyes, not only are you becoming more and more of a fatass every day, you're wasting your hard earned Biden Bucks. Nut up and buy some groceries one time.

I’ve said this many times.

Rice, chicken, pork chops, bananas, broccoli, and cucumbers are all cheap arse food.

I've never heard anyone say this.

People eat like crap because they're lazy, not because they think it is cheaper.

You are not taking into account the time it does take to prepare but I get your sentiment. Cheaper probably isn’t the right word. It is “easier” to eat unhealthy food than healthy food. The easier part is a combo of the unhealthy food being cheap and easily accessible while also taking little to no time to prepare.

Its not shocking considering that there's fast food on every corner that's cheaper than the food that is actually good for you. Plus people aren't working out or getting outside like they used to.

It's not a cost difference issue, it's a time issue. No one wants to spend the necessary time cooking, cleaning, deciding what to make tomorrow, eating leftovers for lunch etc. People just want to hand over $5-10 for a paper bag full of plastic and crap food, 2 to 3 times a day, then throw the trash away. Often right out their car window.

We're a nation of fat, lazy fricks who want to blame anyone but themselves for their situation.

What? And have people accountable for their own health and choices that impact that health?

What fricking country do you think this is? Sweden or some shit?

4 lb of great value chicken nuggets is 8.98.

4 pounds of chicken breast at your price is 12-16 dollars.

Of course I buy chicken breast for like 1.99 or less a pound.

I think the more accurate way would be to compare the cost per calorie.

I meal prep about 1 hour on sunday and typically cook something else one other night a week. It takes less than 5 minutes to warm it up or make a vegetable as a side.

Yet people will drive 15 minutes to the nearest taco bell and back because that's "quicker"

Even for unhealthy fat people who eat convenient food all the time, Taco Bell just sucks in general.

Good question. Eating healthy is not expensive at all. Fresh produce is cheap and plentiful.

Bull shite. Or produce receipts showing that you only spend $200 on food for a month

I’m not saying fresh produce and meat is prohibitively expensive, it isn’t......but $200 a month is absurd unless you live alone and/or eat only chicken breasts and strips of celery

Your obviously single and have no kids.

We almost never eat out and my wife and I carry our breakfast and lunch to work.

But it definitely takes me more than an hour to cook and feed us all for the week. And that's not counting the dishes.
