I'm sure this question has been asked but when I did a search I couldn't get my question completely answered so please bear with me.
I am recovering from way, WAY too many years of vegetarianism/veganism, surviving on a hyper processed high carb diet and thankfully I have a Paleo enthusiast doctor who sat me down and gave me a straight talk about my diet and said I would ruin my body if I kept eating like I was.
So here I am and here's my question:
I know older schools of Paleo encouraged lean meats because of weight loss and assumptions of non-organic sources
I can only afford some organic food right now (some chicken, some buffalo) - am I doing serious harm if I eat some non-organic chicken (whole chickens)? Is this okay for the time being as long as I'm trying to do organic when I can and will be able to buy grass-fed in the future?
If YOU could only buy non-organic, what would you buy??
Thanks everybody! I appreciate any and all feedback. I'm definitely feeling a little lost in this world!

If needing to be very budget minded I would lean toward organic eggs and canned fish like sardines, mackerel, salmon, anchovies, mixing them with olive oil (instead of conventional mayonaise) is a good first step toward a more paleo style.

Organic is the icing on the proverbial cake. Don't sweat it. And ignore the silliness of avoiding non-organic animal fat, you might as well debate how many angels can dance on the head a pin while you're at it.
Broad strokes, first. Nutrient dense diet with lots of plants, use animals to support that plant-rich diet.
