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 is natural. During winter we more than likely went through periods of calorie restriction. We dont want to starve ourselves obviously but we also know that we will be eating less.
As of right now we get a monthly shipment of beef from a pastured/grass fed ranch. It is pretty expensive and we can't really afford to add to it. It also takes up a fair amount of space in our freezer- lets say half to be safe? (standard freezer) Without looking at the order I say it averages to a 3 pound roast, 2 steaks, and 5 lbs of ground per week. Two packages of stew meat and soup bones are misc.
Now Im guessing we will need to go super low carb. And I will fill up the freezer as best I can with stuff. Here are some things I am thinking about
*eggs- the pastured kind. How long do they stay good assuming they are pretty fresh when bought? I could buy a few extra dozen during the last week of the market.
*hazelnuts - I know we can freeze these but freezer space is precious. How long do they stay fresh? What about in the refrigerator?
*maybe a few meat items? But this is not likely to be within price range
- it should be noted that we have a whole jar of coconut oil that is unopened.
*apples- these should last awhile in the fridge right?
Cheese lasts when unopened right?
AS far as veg goes what is the easiest (that is in season) to freeze/store? What lasts the longest in the fridge?
Suggestions? Is this possible??
