    Eggs, canned tuna, ground beef (80/20), chicken thighs.

    If things are tight, you don't have to go for grass fed beef, pastured pork, etc. That is the ideal, but it's not totally necessary. Just try to get the finances in order (prioritize the diet) when you can and do the best until then. That's what I did.
    People too weak to follow their own dreams will always try to discourage others.

      Definitely this. Also chicken livers are $1.99/container.

        +1 look for these on sale, too, though it's rare. Found eggs for $.50/doz the other day...bought 10 dozen.

          Less protein, more fat? Organ meats?

            Look for primal foods on sale and do tweaks when they aren't. For example, my preference is for canned sockeye salmon, but it's 1.99 for a small can. Our grocery had the double-sized can of pink salmon for the same price, so I bought a dozen of those.

              Grow your own. tickets, meal worms and Garden snails are easy to grow and cook, and highly nutritional.... If you can get past the yuckiness factor :-D

              I saw a programme a couple of weeks a go about a guy who was making a bomb "farming" common Garden snails for the escargot market, not a lot too it

                That's pretty much the business, right there.

                  Organ meats, canned sardines/tuna/salmon, eggs, ground beef....

                  Misabi - I'd be leery of eating garden snails. Snails and slugs are intermediate hosts for approximately a bajillion parasites.

                    Check out local vegetable stands for the best value on spinach, kale, collard greens and zucchini, things like that. Best to find pesticide-free, but you've got to start somewhere. Grocery Outlet also has lots of produce like avocadoes, melons and green apples in good condition for less than the other grocery stores.

                    Grass fed meat shops often have a bargain bin. Also, ask them about bones for the marrow. Once you try it, you'll want to live on it.

                    Grocery Outlet near me has huge frozen sides of skin-on wild salmon for 4.00! Then you've got shellfish by the frozen bagload.
