    I had to google your accordians, but no. Jacket Wedges are potato segments cut into eights the same way you would break a mandarin into 8 segments. Then you marinade them in garlic/olive oil/basil/salt/tamari for a couple of hours, then bake them in the oven.
    Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

      Ah, I make those but I never tried the long marinade. You make a strong case!

      Accordion is my default since I love salt and vinegar creeping into every crevice.

        Organ meat, eggs and potatoes. Bananas if you have a sweet tooth.

          Bananas, potatoes, and eggs all can be acquired at low cost.

          If you have Trader Joe's where you live, I recommend going there. They sell mostly all organic food, and aren't really expensive at all.

          I also know some people who have eaten just cans of tuna and salad all week, while on a budget, too.
          Stumbled into Primal due to food allergies, and subsequent elimination of non-primal foods.

          Start Primal: March 2013, start weight 150lbs, Ladies size 6
          Current: 132lbs, Ladies size 2
          F/23/5'9"

          26lbs lost since cutting the crap.

            It depends on what's cheap, what's expensive in your area. Here I would go with
            -Offal, if nobody suggested it yet. Liver etc cost << less than ground beef here
            -potatoes
            -rice and beans
            -any veggies that are on sale, cabbages and root veggies are the cheapest here

            eggs and dairy are $$$ here. But I hear they are dirt-cheap in states.

              Rice! Hit a bodega or indian grocery (if there are such things were you live) and you can get a 20 lb bag of rice for 10 bucks. That should last a long time. Add in eggs, tuna, cabbage, carrots, chicken legs are cheap and you can get many of them. Roast and eat, then save the bones to make a broth.
