9 healthy foods that are always cheaper to buy than make yourself
I have to disagree with a lot of the conclusions in this article. For example, in #1, yes tahini costs more than ready made hummus, but you get a dozen or more batches of hummus out of the ingredients in the long run.
I feel the same about salad dressing. A bottle of good oil and a bottle of vinegar will make way more dressing than you can buy in ready-made form, and without additives. It only takes a few minutes to whisk together and it can be different every time.
Pho is stupidly cheap to make at home, and boiling a broth while you surf your phone is no effort at all. For the price of a restaurant bowl I can make a gallon of soup at home.
