I'm currently trying to reduce my food budget, but it seems a difficult task. This month I'm already over $700/month (canadian) for two people. It just seems ridiculous to me, especially since not all my meat is organic, or grass fed, and we're... (more)
I've heard that some salmon is just tilapia (which is ridiculous). I can get these frozen packages of salmon for about $1.30 for 4 ounces of salmon. That's about $5.20/lb. Is this too good to be true? Here's their site. http://yiheseafood.com/ (more)
I live in a very small town and our grocery store is extremely basic. When I look at Paleo Shopping lists and the cookbooks, I realize many of the food items that are called for are unavailable to me. Im wondering if there might be some kind of... (more)

The Northwest isn't exactly beef-land. Stick with the best seafood on earth. I like Olympia Seafood in Olympia for fresh Dungeness crab, but Pike Place is good if I'm in Seattle.
I understand that pasture /free range animals are the ideal, I simply cannot afford them. I am forced to eat on a budget of $10 a day. There are local butchers shops and maybe one day when I get a promotion I can make the ideal an actuality. But... (more)
That happens to be my budget for a day as well...and all my food is also what I consider high-quality because I really don't want to support factory farms, even if it is cheaper. I assume you're in the states, because those stores sound like the... (more)
UGH. Seriously. Well I knew it wouldn't be easy but I am determined to stick to our plan. I know that most reasonable folks would just suspend the rule during that time but not us loony toons. (Male 29 and female 27) I do think in a way that this... (more)
It might be too late for this season, but perhaps by next year get a chest freezer. It will pay for itself in a month with cheap pastured meat on sale from farmer's market or online - same for frozen CSA/farmer's market veggies. I learned it this... (more)
I don't know about the rest of you, but trying to buy Paleo food means I am usually running to one store or another almost everyday. One place to buy coconut milk, another for something else, etc... And then, of course, some store fails me. Or... (more)
I recently got married and moved states away. My husband is a medical student and receives a small stipend, and I'm still jobless (applying and applying and applying, but so far, not much luck). We're having a really hard time affording the paleo... (more)
Alright, it's lunchtime, I was late to work, didn't pack anything so had Albertson's as my only choice to get food. Not a good Albertson's. Here is what I ate : Fried Chicken Breast from Deli...skin removed. One small avocado w/2 tsp honey 1/2... (more)
3 and 1/2 months into CF/Paleo, I often feel strapped for time, being that I now spend much more time every week working out at the box, grocery shopping (I hit 4 different stores to save money and to get the "good stuff"), and prepping meals.... (more)
A chest freezer full of grass fed meat saves me time shopping!
I live 90 miles north of Spokane WA. 1 doz free range organic eggs are roughly $4.50 1 gal of raw milk is $9. 1 lb of grass fed ground been is about $6. Curious about other areas. UPDATE According to this crazy accurate poll (I averaged the... (more)

I'm working hard with a bunch of Paleo enthusiasts to set up a high quality Paleo store, primarily for non-perishables with the hope of eventually moving into perishable items in certain local markets. I'm amazed there isn't a good online store... (more)
I shop at Kroger for veggies when Im too lazy to hit the farmers market or have too little money to hit the co-op and I decided I'd check their website for digital coupons to save a bit more. Well of course all the coupons are for crap, but then I... (more)
I make grass-fed beef jerky and sell it in Iowa. In order to have "grass-fed" on the label, I have to get an affidavit from the beef producer that states the beef was always fed grass and never grain. nomadjerky.com
Hi, I was wondering if you guys recommend buying some animal fat from a grocery store? I saw some goose and pork fat in glass jars in Tesco. Do you think they're ok? They also have som cheaper ones in plastic containers... Or should I get it from... (more)
Was very excited to read in the local paper this weekend that Earth Fare organic grocery store http://www.earthfare.com/ is moving into the area this summer,..just down the street from me. We already have a Trader Joe's @ 7 miles away - Is Earth... (more)
I am at work and did not bring a lunch with me today. There is a grocery store around the corner from the office. What can I get for lunch that does not require any cooking and stay Paleo? BTW, this is a newbie.
I'm now taking extra time in the grocery store to read every label, and do my research, and evaluate all things anew, because you never know what is in the thing till you read the label...( deep breath ) The stores are full of things I would not... (more)
This is my first week of Paleo. I am not allergic to gluten but of course I am avoiding them. My question is whether I should avoid products that contain allergen information like 'processed in a plant that also processes wheat/soybean/milk etc??' (more)
I live in Charlotte, and have found a few sources to buy my "good" groceries. I figure others might like to know about them and I'd love to hear where they shop. Maybe folks could list their city/area and their favorite shopping locations. In the... (more)
