One of the very good things to happen as a result of grain prices going up, is the cost of meat has gone up faster.
Beef cuts go as high as $12/lb while some lamb cuts are higher.
Milk and eggs are both up.
I think mild has doubled in price during the last 18 months; ditto eggs.
PETA once suggested taxing meat as a way to price it out of public consumption budgets.
A pound of bread is 1/2 to 1/4 the cost of a pound of meat. Soy has not gone up that much in comparison, so that meat substitutes have hardly risen at all and soy milk is competitive to cows milk.
If you shop carefully at non-supermarket sources or the small chains, such as Vallarta, you can get vegetables 50% or more cheaper than the chains.
As long as grain prices remain high, grain-fed meats will go higher, as will milk and eggs.
Viva la foodflation!
Don't look at this unless you are stronger than I am:
