"The way our current system works, the food that is closest to its original form is hardest to ship and store, so tends to be highest-priced. The most calorie-dense, over-processed food tends to be cheapest."
This is a pretty big problem around here. If people want healthy food they'll likely have seek the specific ingredients or fork over a lot of money for preparation at a restaurant. Chipotle and Panera Bread are probably the healthiest places for fast food here. It would be nice if there was a place on the East Coast that was fast for people on the go and also managed to be cheap. I'm sure Portland has some places that are fast, cheap, and healthy but that's because people are more enthusiastic about life and being healthy over there.
