Hi Jan,
I really enjoyed this article. Thanks for posting the info and suggestions. I am concerned and will probably shop differently. Now you just need to post lots of bean and rice meals for us to try!


Great post.


Great post. What is also so alarming about the high increase in food prices is the number of families that will end up having to get their weekly groceries at the local food banks.

Thats so true, Paula.  And so sad to think about.

As others said, great post. We do eat a lot of bread and meat so I am really concerned. Just last week I borrowed a bunch of vegetarian cookbooks from a friend - I would like our family to cut out our meat consumption for environmental reasons, cost reasons and health reasons. I am a little daunted by the thought of trying to cook vegetarian, but will do my best.

Thanks for making us aware of these issues. I had heard tidbits here and there but not in great detail.

Love your blog!

Jan Scott

Did you find anything interesting in the vegetarian cookbooks?  Thanks for the kind words....Im going to try and post some eco (both wallet AND earth friendly meals) eats over the next few months.
