Eating Well at Home: Food Inflation
If you’ve been to the grocery store recently, you are no stranger to climbing prices. The cost of food across the globe is up nearly 7%, with experts predicting even higher prices in the months to come. So, what can you do about it?
Shop for store or generic brands. They can be up to 20% less expensive!
Check your pantry stock. Plan meals around ingredients you already have on hand.
Enjoy a meatless Monday. Swap costly meat with beans, lentils, quinoa, or tofu.
Purchase fruits and veggies in their canned, frozen, dried, or fresh forms-whichever is less expensive.
Review the nutrition facts label for added sugar and salt.
Buy in bulk to help you get more for less.
Get creative with leftovers. Bring leftovers for lunch or get a bonus dinner with less effort.
