Hello All: I want to get your advice on staying Paleo. I am currently working as a humanitarian worker in Haiti. Unfortunately, most of the meals consist of rice and beans and maybe a few pieces of meat to flavor the meal. How do I go asking for... (more)

Sounds like dried meats are going to be your friend. Stock up and good luck.

Very soon my food budget is going to tumble down to around $20 per week. Through trial and error, I've noticed my body works a LOT better on a meat/vegetables/fat diet. Since my budget is crashing down, I've been thinking of adding in legumes... (more)

So, I grew up poor, until I was a teen. Potted canned meat was something that poor country-bred kids ate. I loved it. I still love me some mechanically separated beef-parts. It makes a scrummy breakfast. I get fowl looks for eating "cat food."... (more)

You mean sort of like rillettes? I make rillettes fairly often with leftovers and think it's delicious. Really it's only the name that is fancy--just potted meat. I would, however, try to make potted meat yourself instead of buying it in a can.... (more)

I'm very poor, very fat, and very paranoid. I will eat it if I have to, but I want to avoid industrial beef, chicken, and pork. Grass-fed counter-parts are off the table as a staple. I understand there exists cow pooling, but that isn't... (more)

You can get a 54oz tub of coconut oil for around $20 bucks. That seems to last my whole family (that and butter are the only cooking oils that we use) about a month. You can switch to conventional beef if you have to (I know you don't want to),... (more)

If you only had the choice to eat conventionally raised meat, would you eat it or would you opt for a cheaper protein source such as beans. Legumes have sustained many cultures for thousands of years, the Tarahumara Indians of Mexico live off a... (more)

If my choice is between CAFO meat and legumes I will pick legumes without giving it a second thought. I would prepare according to WAPF which helps a lot. I would also eat a lot of yogurt(which you can make yourself very easily), cottage... (more)

My mate swears by the stuff, I haven't used it much. I know it is good in coffee, or as the base for a curry, but I'm hoping someone here might have a lovely suggestion that will ease the hunger of a grad student
