The food pricess are low because the food is cheap. Period. And the only reasn they have low diabetes and heart attack incidence, despite the beer they drink, fat they eat, and fags they smoke, is because they cycle everywhere, from a young age, all year. Even in winter.
try doing 5 miles to work in the morning on a bike in - 10 C. Every morning, al winter. I know, I have done it. A mate in Maastrict described a cycle to work, of many miles, in - 22C one year.
try cycling my route to work its probably 5 miles virtically if you add the hills together, when yo live in a country where anything over a foot high is classed as a mountain it does make it easier to cycle

I have been tempted to cycle to work (as I used to a very. very long time ago) but was put off by the fact that the walk to the shower from the office afterwards is longer than the original walk from the lounge to the office...
That and it'd take longer to fit the bicycle clips than to walk it!
