Today's World Rhino day - never knew about this. Sad that so many species are becoming extinct because people are greedy.

Healthy food vs Expensive food

Was reading an article today at Get Rich Slowly about healthy food being too expensive. I don't think so.

Organic food is more expensive than regular food, that's a given. But in general, to eat healthy food, buying groceries at the store and making them at home is cheaper and healthier than going out.

Apart from the type of ingredients, the way of cooking makes a huge difference. Deep-Frying and Frying & adding lots of butter is not good for health. Oil & Butter is not cheap. Comparatively, steaming is a very inexpensive option. I was reading just yesterday that cooking vegetables by boiling them in water is not a good way to eat them since water-soluble vitamins are washed away in the water. It's better to steam the veggies - that way you don't lose the vitamins.
