What happens to those who buy it is they get a smaller wallet and a bigger waist line and health issues.
Let’s take a “staple” of “convenience food” Mac N Cheese. It costs between $1 and $1.50 a box and has(3) 1 cup servings. It really isn’t good for ANY of us. But it is convenient. And full of stuff the body doesn’t need.
Instead buy a 5lb bag of flour – $2.46 & 2 dozen eggs – $4.00 and make the pasta yourself for about .42 for 3 servings, with nothing but Flour, Egg, Water and Salt. Then you can add to that a variety of sauces, spaghetti, butter, cheese, add in canned or preferably fresh veggies and you actually have a decent meal for low cost.
If anyone wants to eat healthy, they have to be willing to put in the time and effort to do so. Can’t find fresh veggies at the market? Grow some, get your kids involved, they are much more likely to eat a veggie they grew. Get creative.
I make a low carb version with soy flour (which costs a little more) and I change out 1/3 of the water for a veggies, spinach or carrot, makes the flour green, get your kids to eat veggies without knowing it 🙂
If you spend a little of your time, you will see your wallet get fatter while your waist gets smaller, seems a win/win for all.
