Food can be expensive, but we have to have it, so footing the bill is a necessary evil.
I often think that if I didn’t have to eat throughout the day, I’d probably be well on my way to becoming a millionaire. Regardless of whether you stay in for a home-cooked meal or go out to eat at the latest chain restaurant, it can be pretty costly. But I had no idea just how expensive it could be to make something 100 percent from scratch.
As part of his “How To Make Everything” web series, Youtuber Andy George tackled the task of creating a basic chicken sandwich from scratch. What many would consider a fairly easy culinary feat was nothing of the sort. Traveling across country to collect salt water from the ocean was only one of the 16 steps George completed over the course of six months. By the time all was said and done, he had collected his own honey, milked a cow, and pickled his own veggies. He spent approximately $1,500 in the process.

I think it’s safe to say that my bank account would rather I didn’t try this at home.
