Answer:

Answer:

Unfortunately, one of the draws of fast food is that it is cheap. Almost every fast food restaurant has a dollar menu with items from a dollar to two dollars. Many meals can be had for less than five dollars. The average home cooked meal will fall between 5 and 10 dollars. The dollar menu is some of the worst items nutritionally. Fast food does have better items since many of them carry salads and chicken. Cheaper home cooked options include foods such as pasta.

Is it possible to meet nutritional requirements on a limited budget? Have you ever been in this situation? What would you recommend to someone who wanted to eat healthfully on $30 a week?
Free
Essay
Answer:

Answer:

Being able to eat healthy on limited funds really depends on how limited those funds are. If someone had 30 bucks a week it would be very hard, but not impossible. You'd have to pay attention to what fruits and vegetables are in season, because those are cheaper. Another thing to do is watch the grocery store flyers. You may have to make stops at more than one to make that little amount work to any extent. Even with all the work 30 dollars a week is really hard. At 50 dollars it would still not be the easiest but it would work better.
