Rising Food Costs

I read this article on yahoo this morning titled, 4 Rising Food Costs That Will Hurt Your Wallet. Basically it was about the increased cost of wheat and corn; and we all know everything is made with wheat...and corn, hence the rising food costs. They say the increased costs of these 4 items will be the most obvious:

1. Cereals, Breads and Pasta Products
2. Sweets
3. Beef, Pork and Chicken
4. Cat and Dog Food

Their solution?

"You might not be able to do anything directly about rising grain prices, but you can shop smarter. Look for loss leader sales on those groceries that you purchase regularly. Make more of your own food directly from raw ingredients, such as cookies and rolls. Pet food can be stored for six months to a year so stock up when you can find a good price. Paying more attention to prices in the grocery store will help you stretch your food budget the farthest."


Blah- here is my solution

How about stop eating all that crap you don't need anyway. ;) We would all continue to live just fine, if not a lot better, without wheat and corn. Now, with all that money you're saving you can buy grass fed meat. And for the love of God- stop feeding your animals ground wheat flour, corn, and soybean meal.

  1. I agree! Fresh fruit and veggies really aren't that expensive, although the media would like you to believe it is. A little goes a long way. And beans are one of the cheapest foods you can get!
