The price of food is going up. Did you notice?
With that in mind, I was doing a bit of research tonight to help in that department and came across the above blog. The title was intriguing and it proved to be an excellent and inspiring read. If you want her menus, she offers them for purchase. If not, there's still plenty of information on her blog for useful gleaning.
Related in an oblique way to my research, I found a fun tip for reducing food costs if you so desire. The oldest man in the world died a few days ago of natural causes. He was 114 years old. (Click HERE for that story.) When asked the inevitable question, he gave several examples of rules he had lived by that he thought contributed to his longevity. One that stood out was this:
Eat only two meals a day.
My husband often does this. His work is physically demanding. He eats a pretty decent breakfast, drinks water throughout the day, often skips lunch, and then has a decent supper. If he deems that the hour is too late for consuming too much food when he finally gets in, he'll sometimes choose to eat something light at that point.
Just wanted to offer "Food" for thought.
