Some will say: these options generally cost more. I read recently what I feel is an apt response: ‘do not ask why health food is so expensive but rather why junk food is so cheap.’ This may ‘cost’ more in the short-term. It may require us to become more resourceful. But that might just be the price of living in a society that we can be proud of. The choice, is undoubtedly ours to make.
