That’s right, eating wheat-free will save you money in 2008.
The USDA recently reported that food prices are expected to make unprecedented increases, with wheat and soybean oil (used in cooking oil and fried foods) getting hit the hardest. The price increases are supposed to be so dramatic, that the cost of cooking at home will rise 4.5 percent! This is the largest food price increase since the 1990’s (during a certain war in the Middle East).
So, why are food prices increasing? No one seems to know – although oil/gas prices are believed to be at the root of the problem. The trucks/planes/trains that bring us our goods require gas/oil, and with atrocious gas prices, the price increases are simply being passed onto us. Thanks George W.!
In any event, it’s nice to know that I’m not only helping my body function better by not eating wheat, but I’m also saving cash.
