Taleena Ratliff Posted February 4, 2013 Share Posted February 4, 2013 I am going to be doing the Whole30 soon, but am feeling a little overwhelmed. We live in a very small town, with only a Walmart and a Brookshire's. The closest Natural Grocers is 45 miles away. My husband and I are both college students, with a 2 year old, and on a very tight budget. I know that we are not going to be able to afford the good quality meat we would like, or organic produce. My thought is that I will be basically do a Whole 30 with what we have available, food wise, and eventually do another Whole 30 and continue to improve our diet when we can afford better quality foods. Does this even sound worth it? Our budget will be $350 per month to feed 2 adults and one child. We survive off this now, but that's all we do is survive. All of us have health problems, and none of us are as healthy as we could be. I think that once I get the hang of cooking and meal planning, I will probably be able to afford some organic produce, but I know that there is no way we could even afford grass-fed organic beef, which is around $6+ dollars per pound. Does anyone have any tips or ideas for finding good, affordable food, and reaaallllyy stretching the dollars? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
