More thoughts: shop around and buy in bulk when you find a good price. I buy coconut milk by the case when it goes on sale at the local Asian grocery. Smaller places that don't advertise will have good deals, but you have to know what the going... (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.

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 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.

Interesting side-benefit that I had not previously considered. Of course, even fresh whole foods encounter extensive taxes as they move through the traditional food distribution channel. However, if you buy direct and local from small producers,... (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.
