I hope you'll think again. I've spent the last several years on the floors of big-box stores tracking prices and entering them into a cool recipe software program that calculates the prices of ingredients, and then recipes. I got so concerned after seeing many stories on the news that said you can't eat well on a budget. It just isn't true. My family has been decimated by disease, and yet genes don't determine destiny. I've been able to dodge our family history and win age group awards in races that I run.
As a former consumer/investigative reporter, part of my job was tracking the Consumer Price Index, so I had a good feel for what products cost. You don't have to live on Twinkies, inho. What tips can you offer to eat well on a budget? Dry beans are incredibly cheap. The largest bag I've found is about $.10/serving compared to the cheapest high-fat meat at $.60/serving. Do you buy them?
