A New Year’s resolution: More homemade food : Food prices for dining out vs. staying home

Summary:
[embedded content] Here at the FRED Blog we’re continuously looking for self-improvement opportunities, and our New Year’s resolution is to focus on home-cooked foods. Food at home is often fresher and healthier, but it’s also less expensive: The graph above shows that the cost of food away from home has been increasing much faster than the average of all foods. We’ll try to pepper the FRED Blog with healthier and tastier posts all through the year. How this graph was created: Search for “CPI food,” check the two series, and click “Add to Graph.” Suggested by Christian Zimmermann.
