Comparing Foods: Slow vs. Fast

We all know that when we compare fast foods and whole, quality slow foods, the slow foods can far exceed fast foods in nutritional value and sustainable impact. Plus, as inexpensive as fast food can be, slow whole foods can be even more affordable.

Take a look at this interesting visual comparison by the New York Times:

It’s wonderful to see the New York Times highlighting the difference and to be reminded that good quality food can have nutritional values that are double, and even triple, those that you get from fast foods and all at a lower cost.  Don’t forget that costs do not stop at monetary cost but include ecological cost and cost to our bodies as well.

By starting from the ground up with whole foods you have control over where you’re foods are coming from, their carbon footprint, and what ingredients are going into your body.
