Day 12

Big revelation of the day: Eating whole food is EXPENSIVE!

I have a freezer half full with beef; I purchased part of a cow with three friends. I love having meat in the freezer, as it helps in meal planning. But I also like pork, so I went to the meat market up the road and bought some ground pork, a pork roast, and a couple of country ribs. I headed to another store for sugar-free bacon; only one store in the area sells it, and they charge  a hefty price for the stuff. I would think with less ingredients, it should cost less not more than regular bacon!

Eating meat three times a day is adding up. Perhaps eating whole foods is only for those who have a good income. I do prefer organic produce, so that ups the cost as well. It will be interesting to add up the grocery receipts at the end of the Whole30 plan. I'd like to know why "foods" with sugar and other unpronounceable ingredients are so cheap while the foods that are good for me are so costly?!!!

Sausage and Broccoli Omelets
The sausage was made by me, just adding spices to ground pork. I sort of combined a couple of recipes, but I know I can do better.

Leftovers-lunch meals from the past couple of days

Mulligatawny Soup from
This is a very interesting soup. Hamburger, carrots, leek, parsnip, and apple, cooked in coconut oil, chicken stock and coconut milk with spices....a sort of curry blend that included a tablespoon of cinnamon. Daughter took one taste and turned away from the table. Husband and I ate it, not enthusiastically, but it was alright. I would not make this recipe again. (But we will eat the leftovers until gone.)

I'm looking forwards to the steak I pulled from the freezer for tomorrow's lunch!
