I buy (and eat) almost exclusively meat and veggies, and prices have definitely risen on average, though not anywhere close to the degree that processed food has. Fortunately I live in New York, where ethnic markets abound, so the prices I am paying are as low as they have ever been (I have been shopping/cooking for myself for 6 years).|
I almost never pay more than $5/lb for steak (my most common meal), $1.29/lb (usually .99/lb) for ground turkey, $2.49/lb for ground beef, .50/lb carrots, dollar a head lettuce, 2/$1 cucumbers, 2/$1 green peppers, etc. Cheese has been the biggest problem for controlling costs as it has been rising dramatically, although I can get feta for $4/lb at the local greek place, which is a steal!
