I think that nowadays its cheaper to eat fast food instead of going groceries shopping. At least for me friend. My friend has stated that she can eat three meals at McDonald's for $6.00 a day--breakfast, lunch and dinner. She gets items from the $1.00 menu. It cost her extra if she adds drinks, coffee or small drink. Now if you multiply $6 a day for 7 you get to eat all three meals for $42.00. So you save time by not cooking.
It all depends on where you shop. You have to remember that if you buy all organic items you are spending more money. If you buy non-organic items is less money. It also depends on the meat you get. For organic meats is more then non-organic.
Food is an item that will go up little by little. It is an item that is needed for survival!!!

If you add health concerns into the mix- fast food is much more expensive. But if you are going to save money on home cooking... Your meals and cooking techniques may need a
Makeover. The other night I made "curried lentils" - one bag of lentils, a stick of cinamon, a few peppercorns and a tablespoon of curry. Two organic boiled eggs for a little extra protein. Simple, cheap and many servings. If you garden you can cut your groceries way back... And I you ask a neighbor if they will trade some of your time weeding for a little of their produce... Even better.
Driving the price of Organic food down is a dream of mine...
But if you really want to save money on home cooking I am warning you it might take some time for your taste buds and body to adjust. But it will. Buy dried beans and whole grains in bulk when you can... Learning to cook things like quinoa is quite the adventure... And although it may take a little more time at first.. I think it's worth it.
