“People these days just don’t have time or money to eat healthy. Healthy food is so much more expensive that “junk” food and it takes a lot more time that people simply do not have.” I received this type of message about 20 times yesterday in regards to my post Fast Food FYI. So I thought I would do a little research to counter this argument…an argument that I find utterly absurd and a bit excusey makey. Yes I just made up both of those words.
Remember my post Holy TV Batman? In that I revealed that the average American that lives to the age of 70 will have spent 15 years of his/her life in front of the television. I find this statistic very embarrassing AND the most effective argument any time someone tells me they do not have time. I look up, roll my eyes and state “Donald Trump is not as busy as you pretend to be!”
