No More "Cheap Food" in 2012

Happy New Year everyone! Who else has made a resolution to get back on track with the Primal lifestyle after a sugar-induced holiday? I know I certainly have. I've also made a resolution to not allow myself to be swayed by "cheap foods." You see, I've become quite the little couponer over the past year. So yes, I have a stockpile of toiletries, cleaning supplies, tea, frozen veggies and I have to admit, "cheap food." I see that I can get free pasta and I just have to have it, after all, it's free! I tell myself "really, I will give it away." Yet it still remains in my stockpile. And I've found that while I am on a savings spree, I've been buying more and more meat through conventional means, which means I am getting conventional, grain-fed, feed lot meat. And I rationalize it by saying "but look, it's so much cheaper!" Don't get me wrong, eating conventional meat is still much better for you then eating processed crap. So if that is your alternative, then go for it. Do the best that you can do with what you have. But for me, it's time to say ENOUGH! It's time to get back to the local ranch where I can get quality, grass-fed and finished meat. Where I know the people raising my food and where I know I would rather spend my hard earned dollars. Here is a great blogpost from Nora Gedgaudas over at Primal Body Primal Mind reinforcing that we need to resolve to "Occupy Your Food" in 2012. Our actions speak louder than our words. Enjoy!

  1. Look at it this way: fewer but better.

    PS: You could give some of that inexpensive food to a local food bank.
