One of my fave things for lunch is a nice big salad and this one is delicious. But I noticed something today. This salad with a few ounces of salmon on it costs $3.00 more than a similar salad with fried chicken on it. This is why I get so pissed when people claim eating healthy doesn’t cost more. Oh yes it does and that’s why it’s such a status symbol. Back in the day folk took pride in being fat because it was a symbol of wealth. With so many struggling to get enough food to stay alive, eating to excess meant you could afford to eat “high on the hog.” So to speak. Now, of course it’s the exact opposite. Healthy nutritious food is priced well out of range for many, and then they’re disparaged for their poor diets.
This is frozen salmon, probably farm-raised based on its color. There is no legitimate reasons that a few ounces of salmon should cost this much more than chicken, especially when you consider frying chicken is far more labor intensive than broiling some fish.
