Of course, there's months when my grocery bills approach my mortgage payment, while a lot of my clothes have holes and I shop at garage sales and dumpster-dive. Your priorities may shift once you realize how valuable your health is. And I don't need Mark Sisson or Chris Kresser to shove the "do what you can" caveat down my throat every time they want to tell me about the health benefits of bone marrow or whatever. They're on record. I read it, I internalized it, I got it. You should do the same.
I have a lot of hard miles on my body from before I realized I'm not 100% invulnerable. Now I just think I'm 75% invulnerable. -Mr. Anthony

Robb wolf himself buys conventionally raised meat from whole foods, and only grass-fed when it goes on sale.
Geez Louise. I understood your post perfectly.
I buy what I can. We'll achieve a healthy hormonal balance much sooner if we eat only organic and grass fed. I am doing neither of those right now, unless something is on sale. I will continue to tweak and fine tune my food as I progress with Primal. I also don't live somewhere where I can go outside and get 15 minutes of sun a day, as Mark Sisson does. So....Mark Sisson doesn't know my situation, only I do. And I do the best I can with my resources.
Fair enough, I just haven't come across these articles where they say that it's ok if we don't buy grass fed/pasture raised. I do the best I can, sometimes I'll treat myself to grass fed steak once in a blue moon.
Apologies for snapping as well. Under pressure at the mo with university stuff, more annoyed with myself than anything! Peace.
My grass fed beef is way cheaper than conventional meat.. I just buy 1/2 cow at a time
I have read Mark's posts regarding eat what you can afford and 80/20, so I know he's not pressuring us. But I really want to buy grass fed beef and humanely raised pork and chicken. I want to do support this way of farming/ranching not because it's trendy, but because it's the right thing to do! I just don't have the income.
Don't assume everyone who's following this WAO is "keeping up the Jonses" and has something frivilous to give up... And $200 cable bills? People do that? I was using an antenna till everything went digital - arrggg...
