    Question Cheap meat?

    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification
    I was reading this article- Dear Mark: Cheap Meat? | Mark's Daily Apple
    because I wanted more info on how I can save money on this diet. I have the budget of $200-300 (usually aiming for $200, because I really don't have extra money right now) a month, so in the past I've eaten legumes (tofu and peanut butter), just to make sure I got enough calories. I've dropped peanut butter after learning I'm mildly allergic to it (paying attention to your body has it's benefits). I used to eat no tofu or peanut butter, and was eating eggs, but learned I was allergic to those as well... (developed facial cysts from eating them. Stopped eating them, cysts went away), so now I use them sparingly.

    My question is, are there any other ways to get meat in my diet? Anything I'm overlooking? Add in ore nuts perhaps? Thank you!

    Eat more carbs and less fat/pro, thats what the healthy poor people around the world do.

    You can turn inexpensive cuts of meats like shanks and shoulders into delicious treats by slow cooking them. Do you own a crockpot?

    I don't eat dairy- mildly allergic to that as well.
    Wouldn't carbs cost more?? Since carbs are from veggies... fruit...

    If you wanna save money, eat potatoes (unless you have a complete revulsion to them for some reason).

    They're a nutrient dense food, and extremely versatile.

    I like potatoes, but find I put on abdominal weight when I eat them consistently. So I only eat them as a "cheat" maybe once or twice a month.
