Grocery shopping is so much more fun now than when I was eating the Standard American Diet (S.A.D.). First of all, it is much much much quicker. I spend less. And I get to justify buying all these delicious cheeses and fish and steak and organic berries and don’t have to feel guilty!
Here’s a sampling of what I bought this week:
-organic bell peppers
-ground grass-fed beef
-organic heavy cream (I’m really partial to the screw-top on this brand, even if it wasn’t organic I would buy it!)
-parmesan (I’m obsessed)
-cherrywood and applewood smoked bacon (see previous post)
-free range organic chicken
Would it shock you that I pay less now that I did before I started eating LCHF? I think it was all the tempting packaged food.
You’ll see that I listed grassfed beef. You may be saying “I don’t think my store sells this!” And you may be right.. but I didn’t think my store did either until I bothered looking. If they don’t sell it, tell the store you’d buy it if they did! Start a trend! In the meantime, you can go to EatWild.com to find a farmer in your area that sells meat. Some will require you to purchase large amounts, ranging from a full cow to a quarter cow, but some may sell them in 1-5 lb increments. And don’t forget your local farmer’s market.
