Quality Eats for Less

Posted by Healthful Elements Staff

This post is an installment in our 52 Health Hinges series. Remember, “Small hinges swing big doors.”

Being healthier doesn’t have to mean a complete overhaul of your diet – sometimes a simple upgrade can make a lot of difference!

Recently, we’ve talked about how good quality fats, meats, and seafood are great sources of essential Omega 3 fats, and how optimizing your Omega 6 to Omega 3 ratio will decrease chronic inflammation, the foundation of all modern, chronic disease. (Part 1, Part 2)

I know these cuts of meat can be more expensive than the standard feedlot variety, so I wanted to provide some resources and ideas to save you money while you nourish your body.

First, think local! Use the following resources to find a farmer near you.  You can search for farmers offering meat shares, vegetable/fruit CSA shares, or various specialty items like eggs, milk, honey, and much more.

Local Harvest

Eat Wild

Many farms will offer direct bulk sales of meat to bring the overall price per pound lower than that of buying through a grocery store or co-op.

I also have heard feedback that many of our readers are located in towns without as many healthy offerings in local stores. In that case, there are a variety of online sources that deliver right to your door.

Here are a few to check out:

Sitka Salmon

Vital Choice

US Wellness Meats

Pete’s Paleo

We’ve also talked a lot about bone broth…there are also options to purchase this online and have it delivered right to your door! Try:

The Brothery

Vital Choice
