Why are healty foods so expensive?

I mean, if you do less to it, shouldn't it cost less? Why is it that all the stuff that spends days in a factory costs less than they stuff they can just pick?

  • Supply and demand...fast junk is in demand so it is cheaper and easier to get ahold of. If more people were to eat healthier, the cost would go down as well.

  • Healthy food can be cheaper, but I agree that it's tricky.

    I buy a lot of basic ingredients in bulk, and grow some of my own veggies. It helps that I have neighbors that are so willing to share when their garden is exploding.

    Then you have to learn how to freeze or store what you grew for the winter.

    Like I said, tricky, but doable.
