Elaborately packaged and resource intensive foods can be wasteful. Think of land, raw materials and even plants as limited resources. It takes 16 pounds of grain to produce every pound of meat sold at market. If we collectively eat less meat, there'll be more grain available for everyone. Everything we buy as consumers is finite. Deciding how to make the best use of our resources is an important consideration for the health of our planet and to feed hungry populations around the world and here at home.
