I spend about $1k a month for 2 adults and 1 child. I'm in New York City. I order meats online and eggs/produce/veggies from the grocery.
Our budget is getting massacred as well. Where you live makes a big impact. We haven't made the switch to organic/grass-fed because of the cost.
I just got a second PT job which might allow us more room soon though!
$700 for 2 adults and 2 kids who eat like adults.
Maybe $100 more than pre-primal but definitely not breaking the bank.
But we ate alot of real food before so

That is the other thing. I think the more time one has the more money one can save. Canning, shopping for the best quality and prices, prepping kefir, mayo, yogurt, condiments, gardening, making broth, etc, etc.

Met my 2012 goals by losing 24 pounds.
2013 goals are to get fit and strong!
Why use a sledge hammer to crack a nut when a steam roller is even more effective, and, is fun to drive.
I do grass fed here and there but the cuts of meat are very lean and ultimately: tough. I'm on a list to buy a half cow this fall so I will be almost totally grass fed then. So yes- I'm eating "regular" meat and eggs. I have five kids and I can't afford to buy everyone grass fed at the moment. Still, it's obviously more expensive than eating SAD garbage, especially at breakfast. I save $ by not buying soda, fruit snacks, and other absolutely empty calories. I also freeze a lot of meat that I would in the past have thrown out or given to the dogs (a single left over pork chop, for example). Also, I never eat out at lunch any more. And the stuff I used to eat on the couch at night..... Premium ice cream is what, $4? So that's $28 per week right there!
