    1) Ground beef, eggs, and veggies.
    2) Bacon, eggs, veggies.
    3) Bacon.
    4) Chicken thighs/legs/drumsticks in the oven.
    5) Soups -- chicken, marrow bones w/beef, etc.
    6) Slow cooker + roasts + veggies
    7) Veggie ideas -- oven roasted, steamed, sautéed.

    It doesn't have to be fancy. I'm a grad student so I know how you feel. If you have your own kitchen, excellent. If not, let us know. We can help brainstorm.
    Are you a college student, trying to navigate college while being Primal? Do you know any other PB college students on a tight budget? Heck, for that matter, are YOU trying to live Primal on a budget? Enroll at Primal University!

    And stir fries! Any combo of meat, veggies and fat that you want. I'm also a grad student and find that it really helps to make 2-3 different batches of food on Sunday, then rotate through them during the week.

    If at all possible, whatever you choose to do, invest in a slow cooker / crock pot. I mean "do it yesterday" type quickness.

    This is pretty much what I would say too, except I'm just a lowly undergrad.
    My whole life, I've felt like an animal......but I've ignored my instincts. I ignored what I really am. That will never happen again.
