2. Food Cost
Your mom is telling you to eat right. The doctor is telling you to eat right. The 6 o’clock news is telling you to eat right. Hello! Have you seen the cost of fresh vegetables lately? Eating right is expensive. Ramen noodles and tasty hot dogs are cheap! Even drinking healthy juices can break the bank! Remember comedian Chris Rock’s standup about how some people have to drink “juice drink” and not real fruit juice. The standup routine was funny, but the truth is not. It’s expensive to eat and drink right especially when you are broke. Like I said, mom, Doctor Smith and the news are telling you one thing, but your wallet is telling you another.
