    Best Budget Primal dinners and lunches

    Primal Fuel
    Hey guys

    Just forward planning my shopping list for the month - can anyone chime in with any top "budget" dishes?

    Mainly dinners, lunches are easy enough and I tend to have similar things, but dinners?

    thanks!

    don't know if this helps, we use heart or any organ meats (since they're cheap) as a filler w our ground meats. lasts longer;-)

    thanks shannon - not quite there with the ol' organ meats yet...heck it's taken me 33 years to eat an avo or olives! I hated both but forced myself to have a littl each time the opportunity came up - so found i could tolerate avo as long as not too ripe and the funny little black olives.

    I will get onto it one day...maybe

    Definitely anything with eggs... bacon is pretty cheap too! Also, when cuts of meat are on sale that you enjoy, try to stock up a bit, or set aside a bit of grocery $$ every week for "sale items" when they come around.

    on this side of the pond, turkey legs and chicken thighs are very cheap, like 1.50 a pound.

    You should calculate the cost of the main food - meat. And use that money to buy as much as Ground beef/pork, eggs and animal fat you can. (You will probably get loads of it). What's left is for fruit and few vegetables.

    Pork shoulder (try the Garlic Pulled Pork recipe on this site) is the best deal going.

    Chicken thighs.

    Egg dishes.

    Ground beef (try it new ways, like in curry -- yum!)

    Hi Sheba,

    Don't know about costs in Scotland but if I'm cooking just for me I like to bake 6 chicken legs at 400 degrees Fahrenheit (~200 degrees Celsius) for 70 minutes if frozen ( 60 minutes if thawed.) Organic chicken legs are $1.99/lb at Whole Foods here in Cincy.

    6 legs ends up being about 1.5 lbs = $3 = 2.2.

    Don't forget to dip it in my world famous Susie Blue Cheese dressing.
