One excuse I hear all the time is that eating healthy is expensive. Well …. it just depends. If you continue to buy all the W30 (or after W30, but still Paleo) snacks and prepared goods, they are more expensive. But, if you learn to eat whole foods and make pantry staple items, it can be rather cost efficient.
Buying a whole chicken, roasting it, eating all the different meat “cuts”, then using the leftover carcass to make chicken broth… you just got 1 or 2 family meals from a $20-$25 organic chicken plus the broth.
SIDE NOTE: Organic vs. Conventional is a topic for a different day. Not EVERYTHING has to be organic. Another area to save a penny. Buy organic when is matters … like lettuce, strawberries, apples, meats. Buy conventional when it is less important …. banana’s, squash, avocado’s, etc.
Back to making ghee …. this is a perfect example how to save a little money. Buying a jar of ghee from Walmart is $10 for 12 oz.
Making ghee from Kerrygold Butter (some of the best butter around!!) cost $21 for 54 oz of finished ghee. THAT is cost efficient!
You can totally do this! There are plenty of NON-Whole 30 options to use the separated out milk solids … mostly in delicious Indian desserts. Or feed it to your dog. 😀
