This Food Economy Calls for Efficiency

The U.S. Department of Agriculture has recently released its food price outlook for 2024, and the numbers may surprise you. With food-away-from-home prices predicted to increase by 5% and food-at-home prices to increase by only 1.6%, it's becoming more important than ever to find ways to save money while still enjoying delicious meals.

Why is it important to cook at home?

With people working longer hours and trying to balance family, health, and finances, cooking at home can be a great way to save money and eat healthier. By preparing meals at home, you have more control over the ingredients and portion sizes, making it easier to stick to a budget and maintain a balanced diet.
