Eating Healthy Costs

Keeping healthy eating habits cost money. A lot. More people nowadays are aware of the vast advantages of including more veggies in our food. But really, those green stuffs are expensive!

I went for some green shopping at Ebene Way the other day and was amazed to find out that one lettuce costs Rs10, One pear Rs11, One kiwi Rs13, a handful of grapes at Rs35, one peach at Rs13. And people usually take more than one and on more than just one day. At the end of last week, I did a little maths and found that I spent a minimum of Rs300 just on fruits. In my opinion, that’s a lot and for just one person.

What about a whole family who likes a variety of fruits and vegs? [I can’t take mine as an example. Don’t ask why. -_-‘] I know the fruits are cheaper at *bazar* or *la foire* but they don’t vary significantly. I just know apples are *3 pou 10*. πŸ˜› But you need more than just apples or pears or peaches. Different fruits bring different vitamins and minerals.

I think it is a long shot but still it would be nice if there could be some regulations on those prices. It will act as a good initiative to encourage people to consume more fruits and vegetables than junk food, which happen to cost less. [But as the saying goes, ‘Bon marcher coute cher’.] This way too, parents can include more than just apples in their kids’ lunch bag, salads can finally be an integral part of a mauritian meal. But like I said, it is quite unlikely that the authorities will do anything about it soon.

And yeah, I have a thing against apples.

  2. nice blog out therez :

    healthy food do cost. but its worthy tho’ eating 2 to 3 vegetables per day.

    for dinner there is a always a bowl of salad. rice to be taken very rarely and bread is much much better.

    no oil in food..thats the basic thing.

    since my dad fell sick last time the way of eating has completely changed and im proudly adjusting to that πŸ™‚

    don’t forget fruits :p

    cheers πŸ™‚ nice blog πŸ™‚
