Topic: How can I know which quantity of which healthy food is the best to eat a day?
November 23, 2019 / By Rizpah Question:
For example how many black raisins, how many nuts, how much honey etc... Maybe there is some site on this. I just don't want to overeat even healthy food.

Google the Vegetarian Food Pyramid. It wont tell you how many raisins or nuts per se but says how many servings you should eat from each food group to be healthy.
Yeah look on the packaging or the food pyramid.
Bread, Cereal, Rice & Pasta -- 6 to 11 servings*
Vegetables -- 3 to 5 servings*
Fruit -- 2 to 4 servings*
Milk, Yogurt & Cheese -- 2 to 3 servings*
Meat, Poultry, Fish, Dry Beans, Eggs & Nuts -- 2 to 3 servings*
Fats, Oils & Sugars/Sweets -- 0 to 1 servings*
Also, Here are 2 vegan food pyramids

You could look at the food pyramid. That would be a start. Also, serving sizes on packages are pretty acurate.
Originally Answered: Why is healthy food at fast food restaurants more expensive than regular food?
Because the ingredients in the unhealthy food are so cheap they're actually cheaper than the healthy stuff.
In the past fruit & vegetables always used to be cheaper than animal products, but thanks to some modern inhumane intensive farming methods and new methods of carcass processing (for example "mechanically recovered/separated meat" etc) its very cheap to get a bit of animal on your plate these days.
What part of that animal though is another question (its not even technically meat most of the time), but when its all processed into a nice nondescript paste which is then cooked up in a shape with some flavourings & additives etc people don't seem to really care!
But yeah. I know farming, i know food factory work. I've lived/worked in both and i've done a lot of research on these matters too, and long story short my advice is: Save your pennies up for the better quality healthier food and avoid such processed foods (chicken nuggets, cheap sausage meat, burgers etc) like the plague! You'll be doing your health a big favour- its not just gross & fattening a lot of what they put in junk/fast food, there are major concerns over the long term health implications over a lot of the other things they add to food.
