Thanks for bumping up the resources Jazz. Great info there! So many wonderful recipes are found online, that i realized I didn't need to spend a fortune on a bunch of books.

I am on a budget and I can't buy the grass-fed or organic meats. I try to buy all of my veggies organic but because I eat only poultry, pork, turkey and fish, I really can't afford to buy organic meat. One package of wings is almost 30.00 and there are only 20 wings in the package... the same with the other meat and fish.

... I follow this advice:

"What Do Other Paleo Experts Say?

Mark Sisson says:

“Breeding, feeding and other poultry farming standards result in animals that scarcely resemble each other, let alone taste the same. [Pastured] is the label I suggest looking for, but don’t be surprised if the search presents a challenge. If conventional is all you can afford or have access to it’s better than no meat at all. Just eat the leaner cuts, since toxins concentrate in fat... ”

Here is the link to the complete article: paleomagazine.com/is-chicken-paleo

... I eat conventional chicken/fish/turkey and my blood work is excellent. At least that is a positive. I will purchase poultry, etc., when on sale.

Yes definitely helps if you have freezer space and can stock up on sale items. Today I was able to buy centre cut chops for $2.00 a lb - how can you go wrong? I don't like canned veggies but definitely always have frozen on hand. I will spend 4.00 for a head of cauliflower if it looks nice and I know I will use it. You are more conscience of what you buy and you tend to use it up and waste less - thereby saving you money. Until you try it and see for yourself then it is hard to convince anyone. I have people all the time say they couldn't eat that way and I don't find it so very different. No one can think that process food is good for you so why not give clean eating a try. If what you are eating contains only one ingredient, can it really be bad for you?

The individual grocery items do seem mroe expensive, but my monthly bill for January has been half what it normally is. you just have to be very cautious.

I don't eat expensive cuts of meat, eat produce in season, and still use canned goods when I can (on sale I stock up on tomatoes). Frozen veg is way cheaper too, and often has MORE nutrients.

Actually SunnyArizona - I don't find it any more expensive. You generally just go around the outside of the grocery store and skip all the process stuff that everyone is guilty of thinking they need. You also don't seem as hungry once you body adjust to eating this way also so I think you eat less

All the recipes posted here, are great, but good grief, seems like an expensive way to eat.

MY NEW saying: (borrowed from Delila)

"If you want to do something, you'll find a way, if you don't, you'll find an excuse."

I don't do bacon or cheese so I'll have salad with EVOO & vinegar, boiled shrimp, collards & carrots and probably snack on far too many raw walnuts & almonds.

...and I foresee some less-than-perfect Christmas Eve bubbly:)
