Public health experts are worried that the economy will worsen the obesity epidemic.
We are seeing proof of it already: while many companies are filing for bankruptcy, McDonald’s sales rose 8.2% in October.
One can only guess that The Dollar Menu is becoming more of a meal staple in homes than ever before.
I understand people are becoming more apathetic towards healthy eating when they are just trying to keep their heads above water. Just last night I has a Jack in the Box salad (which was over 600 calories, I’m sure- can you even still call it a salad?) because the boy offered to pick something up. My first thought USED to be how was my eating today? Does this fast food meal fit? Did I hit my other food groups today? but this time it was one less meal I have to buy, I should take advantage.
What about you guys? Have you been eating differently? More prepackaged? More processed? Or are you staying so basic, you are actually eating better? (brown rice, canned veggies, no extras?) Is good food not something you scrimp on?
