Questions regarding the Primal Blueprint shopping list
I will make my way to the grocery store next week. I also own Primal Eating Quick and Easy meals cookbook. I will like to utilize this cookbook extensively. I really don't want to keep going back to the grocery store when I use the cookbook.
I need to know how much I will spend at the grocery store and how much food I need to cover two weeks and a month. I never have done this kind of shopping before. I'm a completely newbie to this kind of shopping. I
By the way I will just be shopping for myself. I told my pregnant wife about this change of eating and how will it be better for us. But she knocked it down stating there are not enough calories for her and the baby. But that's whole other matter. I just wanted to state that it will just me eating this healthier food. Not her.
We usually spend $150 dollars at the grocery store this has been our average cost.
I hope someone here can help me out with this. Thank you
How often do you go grocery shopping? Once a week / Every two weeks?
Pick out a couple of recipes that you want to try first. What ever you don't have (i.e. spices, veggies, ect..) right on the shopping list. Depending on what you still need to get will depend on your grocery bill. For my 6 year old and I, we average around $65/70 per week. We buy enough meat (steak, chicken, pork, bacon) to last us the week. And enough veggies (mostly frozen, but check that the ingridents are only veggies and nothing else) to go with almost every meal. We buy a carton of eggs every week. Really it just depends on how much you buy. When I first started out it was a bit more expensive because I had to buy spices (didn't cook before going Primal), and that got a bit pricey. But once I was set with the spices, the bill stayed about the same, but I was not going through the drive thu anymore. And THAT really saved me some money!

You must live in bumfuck nowhere because I live in a pretty average city and I spend close to 100 a week just for ME. And I'm frugal!

I wish I was cool enough to use the word fortnight un-ironically.
Sadly, I'm just way too fucking american.
The way I read it, she makes additional trips through out the 2 weeks for meat and produce. About $25 per trip in addition to what she's already spending. So, that can be $400+ every 2 weeks...

Reason: spell check
I just go to the mexican aisle and buy the Badia brand spices for 70% cheaper than mccormik or publix brand.
