In the past few days, I've been sharing my thoughts and asking a lot of questions about high fructose corn syrup and genetically modified foods. Considering this and the heavy use of pesticides, hormones, and mistreatment of animals, I’ve been slowly shopping for organic foods more. I have to admit though, it’s a daunting thought – the want and need to shop for organic foods on our food budget.
Everyone's food budget is a growing problem these days...
Randy and I were out grocery shopping recently, and we stopped in shock at the price of a pound of Oscar Mayer Bacon…$7.26! Unbelievable! Our food budget can't handle prices like that anymore, and I'm glad we switched to cheaper turkey bacon. Wow - eating healthier foods can be expensive, but not when it comes to bacon!
The price of groceries is biting into our food budget with huge teeth, and it doesn’t seem to be letting up either. Eating healthy can be costly, too, so we came up with a few strategies to make it affordable for us.
