I love this picture! Mark Bittman, columnist for the New York Times, recently wrote an article called, "Is Junk Food Really Cheaper?" I know I've read the argument that it cost more money to eat healthy than it does to eat a more processed diet. Bittman challenges this argument in the article. He says dinner at McDonald's will cost a family around $28 while a simple home cooked meal of roasted chicken with vegetables and a salad and milk will only cost about $14, and feed four or even six people.I really like the examples he provided in the picture.
