YES.
This is a great place to be in and a great way to think about it. =D

I wasn't doing full paleo but I was trying to cut as much grain and processed food as possible, and I was feeling so much better! Now I'm back to eating grain and processed food because, hey, guess what's SUPER CHEAP? Ugh.
When I am in a big money crunch, I tend to go all out on the eggs and sweet potatoes Might not be the best for me, but it is super super cheap, and it fills me up and holds me over until payday!

Way to go, Laurelin!

Beanie, any suggestions for me? We can do about $40/week for food between the two of us right now, which is just over $2.85 per day, each. I don't consume meat, can't have much in the way of grains without getting sick. Cheese is generally closer to $4/8oz, though I do stock up when it's on sale for 2/$5. I eat a lot of potatoes, which isn't great. Don't like eggs unless they're in something. No pineapple, kiwi, or papaya. Wanting to stick as vegan as possible.

On good weeks we have a bit more for food, but that's what we have for sure every week.

I'd recommend seeking out a nutritionist to help you get your eating on track. Getting fit is more about the nutrition than the exercise (both are important but if you're not eating properly, you're not reaping the benefits of exercise).

I'm well aware, but if I can't afford more than that for food every week, I sure as sh*t can't afford a nutritionist, lol.

If I had more money I know exactly how I'd eat, I'm just wondering if there's something obvious I'm not thinking of in terms of cheap, healthy meals.

Let me think on it some Julee. I've never eaten vegan, and vegan is pretty much the total opposite from primal or paleo (all the meats!!) so I'll mull it over some. My gut instinct is beans... not paleo or primal, but beans have a history of being a staple when people are tight on cash and should be nutritionally superior to some other alternatives...
Let me research some and I'll get back to you!

You said eggs are okay if in something, does that mean an omelet is okay, or is that something in eggs rather than vice versa and not okay? LOL.

That'd be something in eggs, sorry! Hahaha. When I say "in something" I mean like, in bread or the like. I've had beans recommended to me a LOT, and I have a few things I like doing with them (three/four/six/twenty five billion bean salad, mmm), but I need to try some more recipes. Still haven't tried soup, I need to.

Dairy is okay, I just like to avoid it as much as possible, mostly because once I've had a little, I want a lot. :P

I wish produce wasn't so freaking expensive! It's a bit cheaper now that more things are in season, but this winter was absolutely brutal.

Also, Amanda, my previous post responding to you looks snarky to me now, I apologize. It's hot and I'm cranky.

One more question, Julee - does the OH eat vegan too? Any allergies or sensitivities on his end?

No, he eats whatever... but he's super finicky. Don't worry about what he eats, trying new things really wigs him out right now.
