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)
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)
In a couple of months I'll become a student and have to be stricter with my money. What should I prioritize to buy to get the most nutritional value for my bucks? Eggs of course, green leafy veg, coconut oil, avocado are staples, but maybe some... (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?
Due to personal reasons I can only work a couple hours a day. I am having to care for a family member who is horribly sick and I will not go on benefits because I don't see why other people should have to pay for my misfortune. Anyway I obviously... (more)
hi! does anyone have the drop on eggs in the Houston TX area from free-range hens, fed a diet free of soy? While a feed-free diet is ideal, I don't think it is possible in this area to keep your free-range chicken population without... (more)
I need to eat eat well, for cheap. people throw out cheap paleo lists that are 4 or 5 times my maximum budget. Can eating pale or pseudo pale be done on the cheap?
I dig a good can of salmon or sardines. A lot of them seem to be low fat though (whether they call themselves that or not) and we are obviously not looking for that. I'd also prefer that they not be canned in oil, even olive oil, because... (more)
Trader Joe's Yellowfin tuna is my absolute favorite. It's a little on the expensive side, but you can find it packaged in extra virgin olive oil. Because of how TJ's handles things, however, you have to make sure that they don't have it one week... (more)
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'm on a serious budget now but have been paleo for awhile, not for weight loss or gut trouble, just to be healthy. Incidentally I've been low carb and don't mean to be, nor do I really want to be constantly low carb, so is it okay if I begin... (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)
Has anybody read it? Do you recommend it? I've been paleo for awhile now, but I'd like to get my personal weekly food budget in the $40/week or below range. Is the book worth the $20 (which for me at the moment is a fairly substantial purchase)? (more)
I'm trying to buy more high quality meats. I make a grocery list for every two weeks and wanted to find out how much my bill would be if I bought my meats from US Wellness. It all came to almost 200 bucks. I wanted to stay at 75 but it was... (more)
I usually don't eat rice but I am needing to safe money and I find myself eating to much sugar (from fruits) so I am trying to get away from that. Also Is oatmeal worse or better than rice IF you had to choose from either ? Paleo Daddy on a budget... (more)
How can I get more omega 3 fatty acids in my diet without spending tons of money? I would like to eat the fish instead of supplements. The wild caught salmon at my local grocery stores are very expensive, 13$ for 12oz of wild sockeye salmon. Is... (more)
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.
Hello, I've searched and read various 'budget paleo' threads, but I was hoping I could get some more specific advice addressed to an individual recently wanting to adopt a paleo diet. I've been a vegetarian for about a year, and have excluded... (more)
In terms of quantity/price, vegetarian is going to win over paleo 90% of the time. If you start considering quality/price, paleo is going to start to pull ahead.
I am a student. I live in Denmark which means that we don't have food stamps and stuff like that. Anyone has any advice for me on how to save money? And any tips to making the beginning easier? Any help would be great. I go to the gym 4 times a... (more)
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)
Does anyone practice Cross Fit from home or is it nescisary (or more ideal) to participate in a gym setting? A gym membership isn't currently in my budget so I was hoping to gain some tips for starting Cross Fit from home. If it's not feasible,... (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)
