          Actually I find I spend a lot less on food now per week due to making lunches instead of buying. I buy chicken wings and roast them up to take for lunch without homemade coleslaw. Chicken wings are cheap as people generally don't want them due to the fat content...That's the part I want.

          So my tip is...buy chicken wings.

          Anyone else got any tips?

            Regarding number 7 - I buy bulk bags of organic lemons and tiny apples for around $4 each. There are usually around 10-12 apples in a bag. I eat one every day or every other day. That's about 40 cents a day. I use the lemons for water and squeezing over vegetables.

                  Nice post. I do 2, 4, 12, 14, and 15 already (though sardines are periodically backburnered). Now to find a hunter in So Cal.
                  Started PB late 2008, lost 50 lbs by late 2009. Have been plateaued, but that thing may just be biting the dust: more on that later.

                    That's a really good tip thanatos, and chicken wings and coleslaw are right up my alley. We eat out so rarely that I completely ignored that as an option, but I shouldn't have.

                    And a little fruit at that price seems perfectly paleo to me supperjenni!

                    Chronyx, bone broth can be as simple as saving the bones from your meals in a freezer bag and when you have enough, toss them in a pot with a tablespoon or two of vinegar and fill the pot with water. Let it simmer away for 12-24 hours, adding water as needed. Sometimes veggies and herbs are added. Here's a link to how I make chicken bone broth: http://followingmynose.blogspot.com/...one-broth.html

                    Thanks Diana! Yes, you are quite an inspiration when it comes to #1!!

                    Good luck finding that hunter tangentrider! I just cooked my first ever deer tenderloin, and it is melt in your mouth delicious. I am amazed that people aren't fighting over this stuff, but most people I know really don't care for venison. Yay, more for me.

                      There are people on this planet who don't like venison? Bizarre.

                      Re-bone broth: with beef bones, I think you get a deeper flavour if you roast them first - just put them on a roasting tray in a hot oven for 30-40 minutes with onion, celery & carrot, then into the slow cooker/ stock pot with vinegar or lemon juice, water & herbs.

                      Also... liver (chicken, lamb - tastes pretty much identical to calves' and costs a fraction of the price). Slice of lamb's liver + 1 egg + vegetables = lunch.

                        Word is that bone broth provides "great nutrition." Does anyone have real nutrition info (or a link to such info) about bone broth? I haven't been able to find anything other than broad statements like "has all the nutrients of the bones," "provides calcium," etc.

                          I was wondering the same thing from the ham bone broth I just made... but I'm not supposed to be tracking calories so I guess in this instance my ignorance is bliss- lol

                            I wasn't so much curious about or concerned with the calories (as with any stock, it's likely very low in calories), as much as since bone broth is said to be a great source of minerals, I'd like to know what minerals, and how much of them. For example, it's a good source of calcium - how much calcium in a cup? What other minerals are concentrated in bone broth? In what amounts?

                              there's so much variation in nutrient content from batch to batch that i don't think there's any way to know for sure.
                              this is the closest i've come to finding anything substantial about the nutrient content of bone broth. admittedly, i haven't read all of it.
