Here is food I cooked for recent air travel (which I do quite a lot of). Chicken/spinach/spices/mustard. I did eat their “wheat” bread on the flight – not ideal, but it added some starch. Be prepared!
Food is much cheaper today for Americans than when my parents were children. Back then, people ate out very seldom; now, Americans spend almost half of their food dollars outside of the home. Many “bad” foods are cheaper in part because of government subsidies in the US.
I believe we should tax “bad” foods to lower consumption. In a similar manner, taxing cigarettes and raising their prices has reduced smoking, especially amongst teens.
A study published today showed that, over time, as milk prices rose, Americans consumed less. As soda and pizza prices fell, Americans consumed more.
I believe we should tax “bad” (high in fat, sugar, and/or salt) foods to lower consumption, and also to offset the health care costs they impose on the society. Taxing cigarettes (raising the price) has reduced smoking, especially amongst teens.
Invest in your future and the health of your family – avoid the soda and fast food as much as possible.
