The number one excuse given by fast food lovers when asked why they don’t switch their diet to avoid the astronomical risk of  developing cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and a host of other diseases is always the same: “I don’t have enough money to buy healthy foods.” A new chart created by the New York Times shows that eating wholesome real foods that are far healthier than fast food is actually much more cost effective. The chart analyzes the price difference between a McDonald’s meal for 4 and 2 different well-balanced meals for 4. The price difference? In both real food options, the consumer saves an average of 51 and 67 percent over the McDonald’s meal, saving around $18.63 by choosing the second real food meal.
