Alisa,
I'm glad you found the blog interesting. Sounds like you and I have some very similar thoughts on these matters. Thanks for adding to the discussion. Appreciated!

Hi Mike, very interesting. You are the first special diet foodie that I have seen address the commodities issue. It is a common topic in our dairy-free (and now wheat-free) household. Both my husband and I have our commodities licenses, an exciting couple I know!

Yes, conservation and innovation are fantastic, but competing with our food supply is not always the best idea. I think

If anyone wants a good read, check out this article about Corn prices and Ethanol production. On the second page of that article, you'll see how Corn has doubled in the past year. That's some serious inflation.

Mike, I feel your pain. Most of the flours and stuff I use I have to order either through the organic place I use or thru the Web. Even buying in bulk doesn't always help.

2007-02-12T15:25:00.000-05:00

Wow...I have not noticed an increase here (south florida) yet, and I shop at a big bulk store (Costco) because they have incredible produce (that has yet to increase in price)!

Not so sure Ethenol is to blame, possible the fact that they have not allowed farmers to take more land to produce corn just for that purpose and are taking it out of our "food chain" instead could be.

gm momma, I have not read "The Omnivores Dilemma"... sounds interesting, and I'll check our library for it. Corn certainly is tightly integrated throughout our entire food chain (and energy chain now too).

I'm glad your budget has only went up 10%, and I'm sure that is kept in check by baking so much on your own. Good job! You know, that makes me think of how uncommon it seems to be

Mike, I really like your understanding of the underlying causes of price increases. I also am concerned about just how ubiquitous corn is becoming in the food chain. Have you read The Omnivores Dilemma? Michael Pollan does a wonderful job of following corn through our food chain.
BTW I wish good quality eggs cost 3.59 for 2.5 dozen. Around here in Bellingham WA, I pay $3 per dozen for free

Mappyb, I sure hope you don't stray to the gluten if you are a confirmed Celiac, since that is one sure way to give yourself all sorts of problems. I know what you are saying about the prices of eating good food, but the cost of eating gluten could in the long run be more if you have gluten enteropathy (i.e., Celiac) due to the medical complications. We bake most of the foods I eat from scratch

2007-02-11T08:38:00.000-05:00

That has been a factor in my going off my GF diet - the costs of all these good foods compared to pre-packaged processed bad foods, it's so cheap, and hard to stay on a budget when these things are so expensive...

No apology necessary...when experimenting with recipes this inflation situation is a cruel reality, the cost of trying to make things better for you and for others who have to adapt in this gluten-infested world. It just plain stinks!
We love to shop at Sam's Club and imagine it will be the same, when we take a close look.
Take care, my friend.
