As the cost of food is going up, have you changed what kind of meat you buy? Has it affected your meal planning at all?
I just plan my weekly meals around what was on sale the week before that I stocked up on. I've really always done it that way. So, I really haven't changed my habits that much.
I bought ground chuck instead of sirloin because they wanted a crazy high amount, like $10 for 1.5 lbs of sirloin. It was so greasy, will not buy it again.
We buy ground pork for about $2.00 a lb. Also a ton of chicken (local chicken plant sells 40-70lb boxes of prepackaged store style (10 per box)) for $10 once a month.
i've switched to more ground turkey then beef. I'm mainly doing it to try and eat a little healthier but i don't mind that its cheaper :)
No, I do not buy meat (other than chicken) from a store
