Modern Hunting & Gathering

The Kill:

11# petite sirloin steak

2# 93% lean ground beef

1.25# spicy chicken sausage

2.5# bananas

5 dozen large eggs

1# bacon

1# organic pastured butter

2.75# organic gala apples

1 bunch organic celery

Total: $57.93

We really made out like banditos this week! The steaks and the eggs were ridiculously cheap. ($2.76/lb and $0.79 a dozen, respectively) We’ll be eating on those for a long time.  I didn’t have to buy much produce, as we still have enough from last week and the week before to carry us through until next payday. Can I just say how much I LOVE this diet? Not only do I physically feel amazing, it seems as though we have tons of really good food, and yet I’m not spending tons of money. (Granted I am shopping the sales, and not buying organic meats – yet – but nevertheless, eating Primally is a lot less expensive than I thought it would be!) It is amazing to me how simple, streamlined, and easy this diet is; I am sure that as time goes on, our grocery shopping ventures will become more condensed as we fine-tune what we truly need week-to-week.

None of this is organic or grass-fed, except the eggs which get daily from our own chickens, and the fats (extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil, butter) which we already have on hand. That said, we do really really well for a one-income family (and a low income, at that), making do with what we got.

We won’t go hungry. 😉
