In hindsight, you might feel a little worried about all those meats you have to eat when you decide to follow a Paleo diet. For the reason that it promotes an increased intake of protein and fats, it's foreseeable to have a bit of misgiving about it because of contradicting ideas presented by other popular and commonly used diet plans.
Aside from the generous amounts of animal protein, and taking away the usual carbohydrate intake, you might also wonder about what to choose from the foods in your Paleo diet food list. Moreover, meats are costly. Imagine eating chicken, pork and beef whenever you want to without feeling guilty about it. Seems extremely satisfying, isn't it?
You can have unlimited supply; yes, but only if you have the bucks to spare. Not to mention the cooking methods, you'll surely get bored stiff with all the frying so you need to try other ways like roasting, stewing, braising, and poaching together with other ingredients to add a new taste to your Paleo meal. So, to give you some ideas on how to spice up your Paleo living while running a tight ship, here are some tips you might find helpful.
Organ meats are a good source of protein, not to mention cheaper than lean meats. You can try heart, kidneys, tongue and of course the most nutritious of them all, liver. Traditional liver and heart dishes with cinnamon are absolute hit recipes when it comes to organ meats.
You might also consider checking out your local farm share programs. They provide cheap but fresh produce that you can benefit from if you're quick to approach them; especially as the season draws near.
Purchase in a bulk. You can actually apply your one time, big time impulse in this one. Though you'll certainly create a dent in your pocket, it's better to spend your money in one go than buying every other day. Say, think about buying half a cow. Not only is it economical, you'd also get to cut and cook its parts in different ways.
As of the time when to visit the market, it is ideal for penny pinchers to go near the end of the day. Farmers tend to offer cheaper goods in hopes of selling out all of them before going home. This way, you can actually take advantage of it, get the best deal and continue your Paleo diet while saving money.
