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 liver too? And meat/salmon? Berries/nuts - maybe not that important?

TBH, this is the future right here: zeolite + compost + coal

But organic farmers often forget to include the volcanic ash because it's expensive and not required. Conventional farmers must occasionally add micro-minerals back to the soil or they will have all their precious and expensive water run right off the field into the nearest stream. So they have the nearest factory dairy farm bring in the cow manure sludge-mobile for a pick me up in the spring. A small scale organic farmer however, they may be tuned in to the tricks of making awesome and much higher nutrition food. Maybe, ask.

You're right, in the USA large scale organic farmers that deal in national volume don't produce better food because they're more concerned with the bottom line than enriching the soil for a decade before calling it organic (that was the original intention of the organic label, but it was a failed one). So buy locally in a farmer's market to find purple basil, and in Norway, possibly wild cabbage. Meanwhile you might consider:

Antioxidant levels can be higher

And this effect does not apply to grass fed meat vs conventional. There is a difference there. What an animal eats changes its value.

There's no difference between organic and conventional with respect to nutrition.

Thanks for the tip. Berries, nuts and dark chocolate are things I might as well drop? Doesn't really offer anything I can't get from other sources .

There is an all organic store in the city I'm moving to (in Norway), so I was thinking maybe eating something like this;

Breakfast:

Green tea with lemon

Three organic eggs

1 bell pepper

1 slice homemade liver pate (chicken/beef + grass fed butter mixed together) OR a handful of mac and brazil nuts

Lunch and dinner:

Grass fed meat/lamb/chicken/turkey/wild salmon with organic kale, spinach, asparagus, broccoli, brussel sprouts fried in coconut oil with 1/2 avocado, himalayan sea salt and pepper

Will I get everything I need with this? Berries and nuts aren't really necessary?

Try to get some liver, sardines, egg yolks (you can even throw out some of the whites). If you're able to use a crockpot, you could get whole chickens and turn them into soup easily, and then use the bones for bone broth; you could also use it to cook cheaper, tougher cuts of beef and turn them nice and soft and tasty.

Keep in mind you get less nutrition per pound in conventional meat and produce, but your budget may speak loudly. Consider keeping in touch with some game meat ranches for some game, or taking up hunting (maybe bow hunting? You might not catch as many, but the season is longer and if you catch just one deer, you're set)... also consider learning to fish. Even sunfish are tasty, easy to catch, and found everywhere. Free food is always good. Keep in mind that in most places "non game fish" don't have a limit, may be easier to catch, and might be tasty... also some counties allow the use of a simple net.

Best way to be Paleo on a budget IMO, become a hunter/fisher, and join a fraternity or sorority so you can grow some veggies of your own at the house.

What about buying conventional produce and using a washing liquid like Environne ?

I think I would consider giving up grass-fed and organic before giving up some food groups, and before that try to reduce other expenses.
