So, I'm definitely what you'd call a hardgainer. This circumstance was not helped by my recent, brief bout of homelessness, during which I dropped 8 kg. I'm in a more stable position right now, but money is still a concern, and I'm trying to save... (more)
As a university student, I don't have the time and money to buy organic food on a regular basis, so I make do with the regular fare here. To make up for the vitamin/mineral deficit, I've started taking supplements I order from amazon. ... (more)
I'm trying to buy more high quality meats. I make a grocery list for every two weeks and wanted to find out how much my bill would be if I bought my meats from US Wellness. It all came to almost 200 bucks. I wanted to stay at 75 but it was... (more)
Most decent fast food combo meals cost around $4-6. I can eat an entire days worth of food for $6 (i don't buy grass-fed). I feel guilty when I'm around kids my age who say they can't afford to eat healthy when i'm stuffing my face full of... (more)
I am looking into opening a Dunkin' Donuts franchise (or similar chain) along with a few partners as an investment, but I'm having difficulty rationalizing the thought that I would be contributing to the crap-food SAD and be part of the reason... (more)
I'm not sure if this is a question I should be asking on PH, but I would like all of your opinions. Here it goes. My mom is sooo hellbent on getting me to work at McDonalds. She is convinced it is the only place that will hire me at my age, and... (more)
Don't settle too quickly on the dichotomy between MacDonald's versus "I haven't had much luck finding a job I want" (my paraphrase). Create a list of jobs you COULD take if hired. Start with values you identify with, such as Whole Foods or some... (more)

I can answer my own question. and have to say he is a snake oil seller. also his newletter one of them are unique information on traditional cutlures and he has contacts to traditional healers and cutlures.
I love paleo and feel better the more paleo I eat, but it can be expensive. There are a lot of tips available on how to save money on paleo, but I haven't found any info on what it costs the average person to eat paleo for a month. The reason I... (more)
Inspired by the eating out thread, I just wanted to check in and let any of my fellow Paleo family know about this supremely cost-effective Paleo Menu Hack for dining at Chipotle. I have something of a famous menu hack on my resume already,... (more)
Part of the beauty of the Paleo lifestyle is that you don't need new-fangled gizmos to get through the day. But... There are definitely items that can help us save money, right? My top money-savers are: chest freezer for buying and storing... (more)
As a modern paleo, do you place less emphasis on money than the average Joe or Josephine? Other than expensive groceries, what do you spend money on? Money seems to be involved in almost all our decisions as modern men and women. Money is... (more)
I made roasted bone marrow for the first time, and it was not bad. Thing is, the grassfed bones cost $3 a pound here in Boston, and most of that is bone weight. The fat is really an accessory to whatever my protein is for the meal, and the... (more)
Hmm, doesn't look like you got the nicest bone. I usually get my butcher to give me the best ones with the highest ratio of fat to bone...because I'm a flirtatious gal ;) I recommend the recipe in Nose to Tail at Home. It's delicious!!!! I love... (more)
Now there's no way I'd entertain the idea of giving up meat in all it's fleshy forms, but there's an "interesting" [or provocative, you choose] article on Good.is about the rise in meat theft correlating with sharp rises in it's worldwide... (more)
I have been Paleo for 6 months, never eating gluten, but now my family and I are in a bind. For 2 months I have only a $50/week budget for all food, and there are 6 of us. The rest of my family refuses to give up bread, so I will break into our... (more)
Now that I know everything there ever was to know about Paleo thanks to Paleohacks is there a way I can monetize my knowledge? Not that I want a new career or anything but a little help with buying grass fed filet mignon or not having to... (more)
I placed my first order at US Wellness Meats yesterday. I wanted to try the liverwurst I've seen mentioned here a few times. My wife hates liver but she's cool with deli/supermarket liverwurst. Of course, that's usually pork liver plus bacon so... (more)
Hello! :) I was wondering about fruit/veggies with moldy spots on 'em. I bought some peaches -- yes, off season, but at a dollar a pound, my frugal self could not resist -- and when I went to consume one, I found it had a tiny spot of mold... (more)
We've had a number of questions asking about spending less money on evolutionary eating and living in general, but I'd like to take this question and try to flip that around. Where in your life do you think you get the most positive results when... (more)
I'll add to the chorus of spending money on high-quality, naturally-raised, grass-fed red meats, except that I find it much cheaper to buy my meat this way! I would buy it anyway even if it were more expensive because 1) it's much better for me,... (more)
Yesterday I was checking some website that was mentioned by a PH member. The site is not paleo friendly, quite the opposite and besides various health (?) claims there was one thing that really got my attention. There was an option called... (more)
Are on cheers to somebody and send them on so that has been our strongest or and through Face book and the Open Graph API we've had a lot of success with that so that the chief functionally that???s that???s real time so I'm out running my people... (more)
The amazon hack got me thinking. I love PaleoHacks and want to support it. Judging by some of the ads being shown I doubt that PH is making that much money off them. How about creating a Amazon Product page on PH where we buy the products through... (more)
This is a great idea. Very easy to do and I would support it. Basically you would access the site through Paleohacks and a small portion of the purchase price would go to the site. Wonderful idea.
Which organic fruits and vegetables are most worth of your money? And I'm not asking about taste and/or vitamin/nutrient contents. What fruits and veggies are most treated with products that can harm us? And the reverse question, what fruits and... (more)
I buy organic everything because in addition to reducing my personal pesticide exposure, I like to "vote with my dollar" with regard to pesticide use in general by farmers. Even if I don't live right next to it, someone's getting poisoned. I think... (more)
I ask, are some jobs good with paleo? Working in a pizza deli won't be good. Some jobs are good because of money. Some jobs might be in the wilderness, and you get wild foods easily and are moving. Other jobs allow you to research a lot on the... (more)
I want to start buying my own things and my parents are always running low on money . A girl has her needs . Where can a 14 year old girl get money Or A Job ? Thanks ! :) i Appreciate it .
