Brother, can you spare a dime?

U.S Department of Agriculture expects food prices to rise by 3%-4% this year!

Beef prices rose by more than 10% between August 2011-August 2012.

Pork prices are up 7.5% during the same period.

HOW COME MY PAYCHECK HASN'T RISEN BY THESE PERCENTAGES?!

What's a brother to do in order to get some healthy, protein-rich foods?

1. Beans and Rice - there's a reason these dishes are in so many meals, world wide!

2. Eggs - they are up 15% year over year, but still much cheaper than meat.

3. Dairy - still an affordable protein option.

4. Quinoa - what did you say? not on your shopping list?

5. Soy - if cooked well, tofu can be a tasty addition.

6. Meat - yes, you can still eat meat, just buy less!
