10 ways to spend less on meat for family meals

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, consumers spent around 8.6% of their income on food in 2020. In addition, the USDA predicts that the amount people spend on eating at home will increase between 3-4% in 2022, exceeding historical averages and the inflation rate in 2021.
Inflation has already hit consumers’ food budgets hard in 2022, and meat, poultry, fish and eggs are some of the goods that have become among the priciest at the grocery store.
Even before inflation, meat was one of the priciest items on many shopping lists.
