There was an article in the NY Times this week, about the rising cost of food. Climate change (drought, flooding, and unexpected weather), the rising cost of fuel (to get our food from where it grows, to our homes), and a growing demand for food around the globe, are all factors. This morning on public radio, it was announced that gas prices are up to a record high across the country. It’s hard not to feel the difference on food shopping day. Some people’s grandmother’s used to save tinfoil (rather than throw it away), and used old bread for bread pudding, or canned their backyard garden harvest to last them through the cold winter. We can learn a thing or two from those days! Since fuel costs are so high, now is a great opportunity to turn to whole foods, along with food that is grown nearby, or in your backyard or windowsill. Spring has officially arrived, which means that you have a larger variety of fruits and vegetables at your fingertips, making it the perfect time to get into the habit of eating less processed foods. Growing your own spring garden will help your budget, along with your body and it’s not too late, you still have time!
