People always complain that eating healthy is too expensive, or eating vegetarian is too expensive, but that doesn't seem to be the case.

I've often wondered how much additional junkfood people who complain about the cost might also be buying. I have a friend who has gone pretty much vegan. I say pretty much because she still makes fish dishes for her husband (although she doesn't eat them).

On the one hand it's all "Yay for healthy eating" but then again, pasta, bread, and potatoes are all technically vegan, and her husband is a diabetic who has to lose another 35lbs to be considered for a heart transplant, so the stuff she is cooking is darned near signing his death warrant.

Plus, she still buys all sorts of junk food for their son all based on it's vegan so it must be healthy. For the record, I do not see Doritos as an essential part of anyone's diet.
