A little help, please :)
Hi Everyone! I'm a newbie to PB. I've asked a few questions on here, but today I just need to vent and ask for some motivation.
Here's my life as of late: I'm currently living with my parents right after college to save up and get a place of my own (ASAP). I'm working full time as a teacher in West Virginia (if any of you know the area, you'll know that the consciousness of nutrition here is quite low and we have one of the highest obesity rates in the country). I don't have too much access to high-quality foods that I need for living primal. Of course I can purchase meat and eggs and veggies/fruits etc, but it's somewhat difficult to find reasonably priced food that's organic, grass-fed, antibiotic free...you know the drill. I'm on a fairly low budget. (Is my droning getting to you yet?) Should I be alarmed if I'm eating the right food but the wrong quality? I guess I'm asking for suggestions and I'm ready to rid myself of excuses such as those I've listed.
Can I get some menu suggestions for a low budget? I have the most trouble with breakfast and I'm getting pretty tired of eggs. :/
there is a thread about 1 pound or dollar ( can't remember exactly )
If you can't afford grassfed just start with regular meat. Stick to the leaner pieces and add some good fat like coconut oil or ghee.
Maybe you can find ground meat or other fattier and cheaper cuts that are grassfed and alternate with other meat.
For breakfast search for frittata recipes. I basically make them with equal parts beaten eggs and veggies like bellpepper or spinach, some browned meat, ham or bits of bacon, seasoning. put in muffin forms and bake in oven for 15 minutes or unroll done.
Breakfast = food. Stop thinking about it in CW terms. You could make primal pancakes (google, there are tons of recipes), frittatas out the wazoo, or you could just eat whatever you have. Sometimes, I have leftovers, sometimes I have bone broth, sometimes I have nothing.
namelesswonder is right
the whole culinary world opens up once you stop thinking in terms of breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Start thinking "What do I want to eat right now?" regardless of where the sun is in the sky ;)
Don't worry about organic, grass fed, etc. Buy what you can find and afford.
