All the time and expense it's taking to make healthy meals is getting me down. While I was in Santa Cruz this weekend paying $8 or so for my organic salad and chili, the Burger King down the street was selling triple cheeseburgers for $1.50. I think this country's priorities are seriously screwed up. How can people who have very limited income and time even attempt to have an organic vegan diet? I don't mean to sound elitist; I'm quite serious. A triple cheeseburger should not cost the same as a head of lettuce.
And then on the boardwalk we saw a stand selling deep fried Twinkies. Even for a junk food lover like me, that was just too nauseating to comprehend.
