Put your money where your mouth is

I say that because so often we think we can get away with not spending money on our food and nutrition.

In the long run, add up time and emotions, and medicine, the side effects alone will cost plenty and probably at a time when we can least afford it. 

Just like any machine it takes good oil to keep the car running, maintenance, and a good run up the highway.

Keep that in mind when you cheat yourself with quick drive thru restaurants and the daily dollar deals on food.

I agree with you. The reasons fast food has done so well in this country is because people don't want to part with their time or money. And drive thrus save both!

Where I live it is cheaper to make a burger and fries than to go to McD's or any other drive thru.  I have learned to reproduce most "fast" meals that can be found in restaurants in our area at home for much less, and healthier.

You're right. We've done it a few times... years ago, when my kids were younger. There was this walk-in salad place they liked (that had pasta, too). It was really expensive.
