The Paleo Diet: A First-Hand Account

So this is where I leave you. I am no expert, I am just a 20-something woman who tries her best to stay on top of her nutrition, while balancing a busy schedule and a tight budget. This lifestyle takes a lot of work to succeed, but the rewards are always more than enough motivation to keep me going.

Notes:

*Grocery prices based out of Long Island, NY.
**Fresh, organic produce is always optimal. Organic, grass-fed meats are optimal as well. If these are available, I try to purchase them as often as possible. If they're not within budget, I try to purchase the highest quality of all products that I can afford.
***Meal plans. I do not plan my meals by writing out "breakfast, lunch, and dinner" every day of the week. I make what I'm in the mood for at the time, with the foods that I have. I do, however, jot down meals that I want, and make sure that I purchase the foods that are required.
