I'm watching CNBC right now and they are telling me that due to skyrocketing prices, people are buying cheaper foods to save money. Less meat and more macaroni. Less fish and more fish sticks.
I feel for those who are in this predicament (unless they smoke cigarettes and eat Twinkies).
But because of this, if you think obesity in this country is bad now - look out. You ain't seen nuthin' yet.
TIP: A dozen eggs costs less than a box of Cheerios.
A pound of Hamburger meat costs less than a pound of fish sticks.
And let's not forget that the healthier you eat, the less food you need to eat (that is if you want to call Cheerios food).
So realize that nutrient rich foods (meat, fish, eggs, etc.) though at times more expensive, give a family a lot more nutritional bang for your buck.
Eat smart, not cheap.
