I eat a moderate carb paleo and work out(strength) and walk regularly. I am also on a very strict budget of only 40-50 a week. I prioritize good quality meat, mostly organic veggies (at least the "dirty dozen"), and eggs (generally organic... (more)
I rather enjoy liver, but where I live it's still almost $5 a pound for the non-organic, non-pasteured beef liver, and $3 for chicken. I'd have to pay $12-$15 per pound for the good stuff.We only have a budget of about $200 per month for groceries... (more)
I've used this product for awhile now and I feel I am getting good results but it is so expensive. Is there anything similar I could consider? I really must be feeling better because I didn't use to care what it cost! I've tried a day or two... (more)
Assuming 1 per day, that's $13/mo. Since it's providing you with hormones, you might try Swanson's vitamins and check prices for DHEA. Not sure if it will work the same for you but who knows?
I've been eating primal (a la Mark's Daily Apple) for close to a year now, and while I feel a very drastic improvement in energy levels, recovery rate and overall well-being as a result, it does come with a particularly vexing issue for me. I'd... (more)
I recently started Paleo and I have found it super difficult to get anywhere close to enough calories. I'm a 5.4 female that is slightly overweight and I eat till I'm full every meal but those meals are barely making it to 1000 calories total and... (more)
When I was growing up, I think the only way that my parents managed to feed my huge family was to buy SAD food from Costco. When I grew up, I moved to a state without Costco, and never really thought about it. Now my BF and I are moving in... (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)
I usually don't eat rice but I am needing to safe money and I find myself eating to much sugar (from fruits) so I am trying to get away from that. Also Is oatmeal worse or better than rice IF you had to choose from either ? Paleo Daddy on a budget... (more)
I've been reading the 50 dollar a week food thread and it got me wondering. For all the families and singles who are working and can't afford grass fed or much food, what do your monthly budgets look like? In addition, why doesn't everyone in... (more)
I've been mulling this question over for a while and I think in many cases it just comes down to priorities. Being honest with yourself about your priorities is im my opinion essentially important to using the phrase "I can't afford..." whether it... (more)
Is it possible to live off of $200 a month and be healthy and paleo? I live in Canada... I need cheap options... I'm 80%. When I eat out I don't eat Paelo, and I eat peanut butter- because it's calorie dense and cheap.
Could someone recommend a good-quality reasonably-priced brand of krill oil for someone who doesn't eat fish? I've been researching different brands and reading up on krill vs. fish oil vs. FCLO all morning and making myself crazy. What do you... (more)
Jarrow Formula's. This is what Dave at bulletproof exec recommends, and I can honestly say it is one of the first fish oil's I've taken that has had a noticeable effect.
Hi Hackers... OK so I'm a studet living in Manchester UK, need some help. My budget is about ??20 a week for my shopping and I find it quite hard to stay paleo at times. This is what I bought this week: ??5 of chicken legs from the market (which... (more)
I was vegan before and need some suggestions for eating meat on a budget. I pretty much feel I know everything ere is to know about eating fruits and vegetables on a budget I am mainly wondering about meat.
I think the other posters have covered most bases. However, if you have to stick to buying meat from the grocery store that isn't grass fed, go with the leaner cuts and use coconut oil, olive oil or good quality butter (such as kerrygold) to cook... (more)
I'm on a very tight budget, so I'm looking for cheap ways to increase my fat intake. Here's my list of regular go-to fats: shredded coconut: $3.69 for 12oz --> 225g fat --> $1.46 per 100g fat Bob's Red Mill coconut oil: $8.49 for... (more)
So I was at the farmer's market the other day and I realized how inexpensive some things are in when in season! I can make 1 pound of organic kale chips (2 bunches of kale) for $4 + price of high smoke point oil and spices. Commercial Kale Chips... (more)
Very soon my food budget is going to tumble down to around $20 per week. Through trial and error, I've noticed my body works a LOT better on a meat/vegetables/fat diet. Since my budget is crashing down, I've been thinking of adding in legumes... (more)
I've been thinking about supplementing with CLO for a while now, mainly because I have some skin issues. I'm visiting Oslo pretty soon, so I wonder if some of the Norwegians can give me a tip where to buy quality CLO? I wish I could give Green... (more)

I'm very poor, very fat, and very paranoid. I will eat it if I have to, but I want to avoid industrial beef, chicken, and pork. Grass-fed counter-parts are off the table as a staple. I understand there exists cow pooling, but that isn't... (more)
What do you think of the idea of drinking olive oil, say 400 calories' worth, at night if I'm still hungry? It's the cheapest calories I can get that seems reasonably healthy.
