    Paleo/Primal for £1 a portion.

    Disclaimer:
    This isn't the best way to go Paleo by a long-shot. If you can get organic, non-grain-fed animals (insect-fed free-range chickens and acorn-fed wild-pork are sorely missed, Spain!), fresh game, enriched eggs and organic, or, better, home-grown fruit and veg: DO IT.
    But for some of us that isn't an option. Some of us are students (for example) living off a very limited budget, but still want the benefits of a Paleo lifestyle.

    So, I made my blog: onepoundmeals.blog.com, where I upload the recipes to food I eat and ideas I have, to show how, on a budget, Paleo can STILL be managed. Not the healthiest, but miles better than SAD and every portion is under £1 (a rare thing for foods without junk or grain)!
    You can always use a recipe for inspiration and just use organic, grass-fed meats and home-grown veggies. Or even use it as a side-dish or a base. Or, to cut your budget back a bit, try making one meal a day out of a cheaper recipe. Whatever you want, I'm just here to share it.

    From now on I'll be posting links to my recipes and advice on cheap food-shopping on here. Bon appetit.

    Lunch: Roasted Lamb Bites with Roasted Veg.

    I got some of LiDL’s “Fox Tree Farm” New Zealand frozen lamb chump chops today. I can’t find anything conclusive, but it seems that NZ lamb is almost always grass-fed and with minimum antibiotics and stuff. If that’s the case, this could be a BRILL way of eating decent meat on a budget! You get 9-10 chops per 900g bag, which is 45-50p per chop.

    Some Americans had been complaining that this lamb is too strong, but I find it isn’t too far from Welsh lamb in taste. Texture-wise I can’t decide if I prefer it raw or if it’s yummier to cook it until you get “lamb crackling” on top! Mmm!

    Yum. Gonna try this soon. Lamb was almost the first thing I bought when I got back to NZ after my holiday. I like to have it every week, sometimes more than once, so a new recipe is great to have. Thanks.

    Whilst not a HUGE fan of "Paleo puddings", I quite like these pancakes for a nice savory breakfast. They'd likely be nice sweet, too, if that's your thing!

    One of my comfort foods I can still eat. And THE most amazing fry-up on the planet.

    I come from a family of sheep and beef farmers in New Zealand - yes our lamb and beef is ALL grass fed and animal medications are kept to a minimum (when actually needed). Yes the taste is stronger - animals raised on grass all year round will have a stronger flavour. Kind of like comparing a hot-house tomato to the super tasty tomato you grew outdoors in your own garden :-)
    Sounds like the cost of NZ meat in your part of the world is actually cheaper for you than it is here!

    I haven't even got into fish yet, or done much with offal!

    I don't know why, but I'm finding cooking and eating EVEN MORE pleasurable now I'm "documenting" it!
