Of course, we all know that healthy foods are generally more expensive. It seems that more people are catching on to healthy eating with some consequences:

Quote:
The Wall Street Journal reports the average price for avocados, butter, olive oil, and salmon have all increased as much as 60% since 2013. Meanwhile, the price of staples such as corn, soybeans, and wheat has remained more or less the same or dropped.

Consumers across much of the world—not just in Western countries as has been in the past—are eating more food high in natural fats. It’s also not easy to ramp up food production to match growing demand.

I think it is mostly a money grab if people are willing to pay the price. If milk prices haven't gone up much than butter shouldn't either. Actually, olive oil seems cheaper now - especially when you can get it at Costco. Fish has definitely gotten more expensive - but it seems to be ALL fish and not just salmon.

This is good thing for people but bad for our pocketbooks. I have noticed eggs are tending to be more expensive but thought maybe that was still because so many chickens were killed due to diseases. Butter I can't understand either.

But finally people are starting to understand that the "food pyramid" that advocated carbohydrates and low to no fats was so very wrong. "Low fat" and "No Fat" foods where sugar is substituted for the fat are inherently unhealthy. Remember Olestra?

Nuts of all kind are still kinda expensive, especially pecans, but the drought in Texas seems to be over.

On the other hand, blueberries, strawberries, and some fresh fruits have been cheaper in the last year or so. (yes, I am washing then good).
