Paleo on 100 dollars a Month - Days 17-18 Green potlucks

Not much to report here, I am just buying simple meats, seafood and eggs, with an occasional can of sardines.  The garden continues with it's usual abundance of greens, artichokes and radishes.

We went out to eat for entertainment on Saturday night.  Sunday I went to a potluck and decided to splurge on a package of nori snacks for only 99 cents.  The rest of the potluck turned out to be rather carby, with lots of hummus, trail mix, fruit and an irresistible gluten-free granola.  There were only a few squares of nori eaten at the potluck, and nobody touched the mache either.

I didn't purchase anything new on Saturday, just finishing up leftovers.
Sunday purchases:
nori  .99
cod  1.59
$4.23 left in the food jar, with quite a bit of food left over. So far I have spent a total of $51.21 for the month and I still have three eggs, the cod, tons of pork roast, half a pound of liver, half a pound of ground beef, half a jar of olives, half a jar of coconut oil and a handful or two of almonds.  So, life is good.  I know where my next meal is coming from.


  1. Garden Veggies would be so wonderful. This morning I woke to 3 inches of snow on the ground here in the Willamette Valley and it's still snowing!

  2. Oh, snow to do CT in!! I guess there are advantages and disadvantages to just about everything.

  3. 3 Researches PROVE Why Coconut Oil Kills Belly Fat.

    This means that you literally kill fat by eating Coconut Fats (also coconut milk, coconut cream and coconut oil).

    These 3 studies from big medical journals are sure to turn the conventional nutrition world around!
