The author reminds readers that junk food isn't always cheaper. And people who have access to good food that is reasonably priced will buy it. However, marketing has turned eating well into the trendy thing to do. I couldn't agree more.
Here's my deal: I started eating healthier when Hannah was a baby. My tastes slowly began to change. I began eating more and more healthy. My tastes continue to change.
And you know, I actually like, really like, eating the food I choose. I like kale.
I genuinely think that greek yogurt spread on a bagel is just as good as cream cheese.
Keep in mind, however, that I eat greek yogurt 2 or 3 times a week. I eat cream cheese 2 or 3 times a year. My taste buds have changed. Don't misunderstand me, I'll eat all the other stuff but when given a choice, I will choose "healthy food." And I'll choose the "healthy" option not because it's trendy or not because I'm watching my waistline but because it is what my taste buds prefer. Anyways, the article is a good read. Check it out.
