As we've seen from the 7-day challenge I did a while back, price is simply not an excuse for avoiding paleo or real food for anyone who can afford to eat a standard crap diet.
I just got back from the local run to the local butcher, here's my haul:
All this stuff cost me 300 kč, about 15 USD:
1/2 kilo ground beef
1/2 kilo ground pork
1 kilo fatback for rendering lard
Some beef ribs
A bunch of Viennese sausages (for the kid)
A bunch of bacon (well, the Czech version)
1 pig foot
No fancy steaks or grassfed stuff, just lots of cheap meat (except for the bacon). When I'm feeling ambitious I buy whole cuts of meat and grind it myself, with the Fleischwolf, but I wasn't feeling it. I don't mind the grinding, I just hate cleaning up the damn thing.
This probably isn't all the meat we'll eat this week, but six kilos or so of protein, fat (and some bone) means a lot of calories for a family of three. I might throw in a vegetable or two.
Like some oven-dried tomatoes:
