Is paying $7.69 for a salad the smart choice?
So I was making a salad the other day. I used about half a head of lettuce, a two tomatoes, some berries, a little turkey, and cucumbers. All of that cost me very little. Plus its a lot of fiber which helps you out when you’re pooping and stuff. One day when I was out and about, I saw some pre-packaged salads at a fast food restaurant and then saw the price.
Poor us. Seriously.
We have doctors, health professionals, parents, teachers and peers telling us about healthy eating and about how bad french fries, burgers, shakes and all that stuff is and then we go out only to see that “the smart choice” happens to be the most expensive item on the menu. Talk about having a dilemma.
The thing that fills you up for the least amount of money is BAD for you.
The thing that does not fill you up and costs a lot more is GOOD for you.
I’ve heard that those salads have a lot of added stuff in order to keep the lettuce green and the tomatoes red. Have you ever wondered why the apple dippers from McDonald’s don’t turn brown? They’re apples! Apples turn brownish when they’re peeled and left out. They used to come with the skins on.. so it was a cool little bag with red and green apple slices. Bright green and bright red. I’m telling you, these apples looked awesome. Chemicals, yay.
