I have been fairly strictly paleo about 8 months and I feel great. Recently however I lost my "real job" and went back to my former job of 10 years as a bike messenger. This is problematic because I burn a lot more calories than I was, and I work... (more)

I have been doing Paleo for over two months now and LOVE it. I love the foods and the way i feel. I understand that eating whole foods is going to be more expensive then the cheap processed stuff, but my new shopping habits are affecting my bank... (more)
I only go for organic (preferably farmer's market) when it comes to animal produce. Eggs (farmer's market egg yolks are bright orange and big while even Whole Foods organic cage free is pale yellow, and they are same price), meat (grass fed),... (more)
Anyone knows if buying organic bones is worth it? I mainly need them for the minerals and not fat so would buying market meat be ok? Can someone explain this some more? Thanks!!
So I've done my fair share of scoping out all of my local supermarkets in order to find the best quality food at the cheapest price. I buy local and from the farmer when I can (ie. buying my grassfed beef from a local farmer) but it makes sense to... (more)
Costco is selling Kerrygold, uncured nitrate free sliced ham turkey chicken, frozen berries mixed bags, organic apples coffee carrots ... Natural Grocer is also awesome place to get food and discount supplements incl Bluebonnet whey protein.
Don't get lunch from the salad bar at Whole Foods. Instead make a salad with fresh stuff from the produce department and get some smoked salmon. The price of one salad at the salad bar is enough to make a few days of salad.
I'm considering buying a membership to Costco or Sam's and need some advice. It's just 2 of us, we eat meat and seafood and my boyfriend eats some cheese. I buy organic fruit and veggies when they are on the "dirty dozen." I use frozen veggies... (more)
Of those, I've found TJ's to have the cheapest price for Kerrygold (pastured) butter @~$2.69/gold brick (8 oz.). TJ's also has several options for organic produce, which I'm said to say I've not found at Sam's Club. I wish that Sam's would stop... (more)
I have been Paleo for 6 months, never eating gluten, but now my family and I are in a bind. For 2 months I have only a $50/week budget for all food, and there are 6 of us. The rest of my family refuses to give up bread, so I will break into our... (more)
If you are stuck in an area like I am where organic produce just isn't even sold, so you're stuck paying grocery store prices for inferior (pesticide laden) produce, this might be of interest: I just finally tried Angel Food Ministries. Their... (more)
http://www.primalforce.net/catalog/ have anyone passed primalforce and MD al Sears by? Sometimes he has some interesting points on helatzh topics and natural remedies. Behind that he is a marketing guy try to sell his products. Whats your... (more)
I'm thinking of joining one of the wholesale club stores to save on groceries. Do they all have pretty much the same stuff and prices, or is one better for paleo items? I'm particularly looking for frozen meat, dairy and butter, and occasional... (more)
I love paleo and feel better the more paleo I eat, but it can be expensive. There are a lot of tips available on how to save money on paleo, but I haven't found any info on what it costs the average person to eat paleo for a month. The reason I... (more)
There are lots and lots of threads dealing with "paleo on a budget". However, I'm interested to hear from folks who have faced a sudden budget shift. Maybe you: Found the house of your dreams and are now paying more for your mortgage than you... (more)
I have not, but without a doubt if I were in a bind, having a house, I would start raising rabbits and buying high oleic sunflower oil. Then rice, potatoes, beans, and garden vegetables.

I am a huge fan of Amazon's short shipping times, selection, and competitive pricing. I've bought macadamia nuts, macadamia oil, single-serve packets of almond butter, dried apple chips, and many, many other nonperishables from Amazon. Now I'd... (more)
I saw this thread on Costco finds. Right now we're weighing whether or not to switch from Sam's Club to Costco when our Sam's membership runs out this summer, and at the core of this decision is the quality and prices of paleo-friendly items... (more)
Re. the "organic milk". It's organic, but it is also usually ultra-pasteurized, meaning it was heated to 280 degrees for X seconds. Not necessarily bad (unless you're in the raw milk faction), just means it's more processed.
Which organic fruits and vegetables are most worth of your money? And I'm not asking about taste and/or vitamin/nutrient contents. What fruits and veggies are most treated with products that can harm us? And the reverse question, what fruits and... (more)
Part of the beauty of the Paleo lifestyle is that you don't need new-fangled gizmos to get through the day. But... There are definitely items that can help us save money, right? My top money-savers are: chest freezer for buying and storing... (more)
