Book & CD-ROM. The price of food is rising in a drastic way. In the 1970s, shoppers paid around 98 cents for a pound of ground beef and 59 cents for a dozen eggs. Today, consumers pay around $3.69 a pound for ground beef and around $1.40 for a dozen eggs. The simple truth is a dollar doesn't go as far as it used to because of inflation and the rising cost of transporting food. One of the best ways to combat the increasing price of groceries is to start buying in bulk and cooking food in large batches you can store in the freezer for later meals. Besides saving money, cooking in bulk also saves time; you won't need to figure out what to cook every night with delicious, pre-made meals waiting in your freezer. To make bulk cooking truly cost effective and time saving, you need to know the right recipes and tips.
