Cost Of The Diet - Recommendations?
Well, my wife and I have been doing this thing for about 3 weeks now, and it seems like sticking to the diet is going to be pretty costly. Right now, sticking with grass-fed and organic foods has cost us $750 for the two of us over the past three weeks. Looks like this diet is going to cost us nearly a thousand dollars a month. Given that our pre-BP food budget was $300 a month, this more than triples it.
Some of the cost comes from the fact that we are now doing most of our shopping at local farmers' markets, Whole Foods and Sprouts, whereas before, most of our shopping was done at Costco and our local Ralph's. The problem is that Costco does not seem to have anything organic or grass fed, and Ralphs' selection in this area is very limited, and quite expensive (as an example, one package of Kerrygold butter at Ralph's is $4.99, while it's only $3.69 at our local Whole Foods -- not a store known for bargain pricing).
So, does anyone out there have any suggestions on how to keep costs lower?
