Default Low(er) budget paleo...

If you had to pick a handful of items to buy to keep a relatively paleo diet, what would they be? For example...i can't afford nut butters, so i buy peanut butter. where is money best spent?

cans of tuna
olive oil
whatever frozen veggies are on special

I stopped buying nut butters, and it's amazing how far I can get on a bottle of olive oil.

Bingo.

I find those whole roaster chickens to be a pretty good deal. roast one of them up and get a weeks worth of chicken.

Eggs are also inexpensive, especially if you know a farmer.

I wouldn't even step foot in that place if the turtle is literally popping his head out and the next closest public restroom isn't miles away.

Eggs, meats, veggies, oils. Shop around.

All the other stuff (nuts, seeds, fruit) gets pretty dang expensive.

cool...so i take it that omega-3 eggs and grass-fed beef are the best investments? what is the chicken equivalent of grass-fed beef?

i've already eliminated grains from my diet, and no legumes except for peanuts. i get raw almonds, pecans, and walnuts from costco, eat beef, chicken, spinach, peppers, broccoli, fruit occasionally, canned tuna, and i eat eggs every day.

thanks for responses, everyone.

oh, and the only times i ever go in Mickey D's and Starbucks is to drop the kids off at the pool. some starbucks will also give you free glasses of tap water if you ask for it.
