Meal Plan Week 26: Cheap Paleo Dinner Recipes

Following a Paleo diet can get expensive.  If you’re eating Grass-fed meats, organic produce, nuts/seeds, coconut oil and heaven’s I haven’t even taken into account the supplements, you can break the bank.

Most people are going to point you in the direction of eating more eggs as protein because eggs are nutrient dense and cheap. We go through 3 dozen eggs a week so I’m not trying to eat more eggs for dinner.

Living on one income, I have turned to my garden, farmers market and started to add veggies and fruit that fall into the clean 15 group into our diet to save money.   I’ve found some great deals on meat from a local butcher shop and  you can buy in smaller quantities if you need to.  Here are 7 cheap paleo dinner recipes to get you though the week.

    Great ideas! We go through eggs like toilet paper around here too. Thankfully our backyard chickens provide some and our family members’ flock provide the rest.
