Is health food a luxury?

We seldom realize how good we’ve got it till something real serious happens. Take, for example, health food. Typically, the more health-conscious like to tout their overpriced and whimsically packaged "specially sourced beans" or whatever as the rest of us plebs buy as regular items. Recently, though, the New York Times noted how many health aficionados are going back to their processed ways in wake of the pandemic for both convenience and comfort. Some think this proves that health food is a luxury for the privileged. Others think it’s only temporary. How about you?

Everyone can eat healthy, sure. But when we say “health food,” we’re more so talking about the specialty items that someone like Gwyneth Paltrow believes everyone can incorporate into their lifestyle. Believe it or not, Gwynie, not everyone has mountains of cash in which they can casually drop $30 on vegan protein bars.

Within the minutia of our current state of affairs, health food has been revealed to be the privilege it always has been. People who have a decent income and stability are the ones who can make health fads a part of their lives. Others at different income levels don’t have such options. Kind of puts the whole vegan thing in perspective, no?

Yeah OK, it’s annoying when people like Gwyneth Paltrow preach about all this nonsense. But at the end of the day, there is health food out there that’s affordable. Maybe for some people, it’s more of a matter of finding health food that they actually, you know, want to eat.

Besides, if you really look at your finances, you could probably cut back in certain places (eating out, Grubhub orders, junk food, etcetera) and instead invest in culinary options that’ll benefit your body throughout your life. Are we telling you to spend $30 on that protein bar? Not at all. But if you’re dropping $30 at McDonald’s every weekend anyway, might as well put it towards food that won't have you crying each time you put on a pair of jeans.
