Am I eating right? (super budget)
When I go grocery shopping, I usually get:
ground beef $3/lb (costco doesn't use pink slime)
Eggs <$1.50/dozen (clearly factory farmed)
Whatever vegetables they have and are cheap (usually broccoli, onions, romaine, grape tomatoes, organic carrots).
Frozen mixed berries
Sardines in olive oil
Costco is kindof weird about organic things in that somethings are only offered organic and others aren't, etc.
Sprouts XL eggs $1.50/dozen (Eggs looked more natural and are local) (sale)
grass fed organic ground beef $5/lb (on sale this week)
Greek God's Yogurt $3.49/24oz (sale)
I have a grapefruit and an orange tree.
I generally have 4-6 eggs for brunch mixed with onions and a whole grapefruit with frozen berries.
For dinner, ground beef and broccoli, or some other vegetables.
Sometimes I'll eat an orange. I drink just water. I pick up offal when I can find it (usually chicken livers/kidneys as they are like $2/lb or less), but Costco doesn't offer a lot.
Sprouts seems really expensive. I usually just go to Costco. Is grass fed worth paying 2x for? Also, it's from South America x.x and am I missing anything? My goal is to just be healthy, not lose weight.
I'm also considering buying 40 lb of the grassfed pet burger from US wellness for under $3.50/lb. There are 5 people in the house, but I'm not sure that they'd want to eat it unless i hide the labels
Edit: and I take a multi and a fish oil everyday. Those add like 15 cents/day cost.
