Can you afford to eat the way you want to?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on March 10, 2008
“Yeah, pretty much. I eat a lot of fresh fruits and vegetables and don’t eat out too much. It’s important to our family to pay to eat the kind of foods we want to be eating.”
“I can afford to eat the way I want to, but I don’t feel like I have enough time to cook the kind of food I really want to eat. So I end up eating out a lot.”
“Yes. I don’t eat out much and try to eat healthy. I cook all my own food, I watch my prices and bargain shop. I also have a garden and can everything we grow, which really helps.”
“I guess so. I don’t really pay that much attention to how much I spend on food, though.”
