    How are you handling higher food prices?

    Primal Fuel



    So with prices rising on basic food commodities throughout the world due to a combination of...
    a) massive currency devaluation/inflation
    b) destruction of key crops by weather phenomena
    and
    c) increased demand from the industrializing world countries like china

    How are you managing to keep to the paleo diet? Personally, I've been doing a combination of IF every other day, an increase of soup/stew intake and throwing out the things I used to snack on in between meals. If you have any suggestions, I'd sure like to hear them.

    Gas prices are going to kill me this summer, I have a 45-60 minute commute each way We almost never eat out anymore, so that is helping out food budget greatly. I also have chickens and ducks, so we never have to buy eggs, and I can sell the excess for a few dollars a dozen to co-workers, which just about covers the cost of their (organic) feed. I have high hopes for a vegetable garden this summer, and I especially want to produce enough tomatoes so that I can can and dry loads of them for use through the winter. I know I'm not going to be able to afford all organic/grass-fed through the summer, hence the garden plans.

    Primal in the strictest sense is an elitist diet. Sisson even say's so in his book and makes no apology's for it.
    I grow my own veg - as much as I can - and buy my meat in bulk. Using cheaper cuts in a slow cooker is a good way to turn tough meat into delicious stew.
    Roadside stall's for fruit and veg as well as farmers markets can also yeild savings- it's all about cutting out the middle man.

    Pity the garbage food seems to be forever 'on sale' or 'BOGOF'.

    Pretty much. This is not a direct result of food prices raising but it is convenient. I also eat more chicken and cheaper meat.

    Put my kids to work. I'm not kidding, my oldest can start babysitting this summer and she will be paying for most everything she needs.

    I actually do much of my shopping at the Asian supermarkets around here which are generally, at least 10% cheaper if not a whole lot more.
