#66 – 50 Ways to Save Money on an Ancestral Diet – Part 1

“I would love to eat an ancestral diet but I can’t afford it, what can I do?”

“I want to shop from small farms around me, how can I make this happen with a limited budget?”

“Food costs are rising dramatically where I live and the budget that once worked for us isn’t cutting it anymore, help!”

In a post-industrial world where globally imported subsidized factory food is perceived as the cheaper or only option for a budget, these are questions most of us have had at some point. In this episode Alison and I want to make the case that not only are there ways to eat an ancestral diet and save money, but you can actually save money BY eating an ancestral diet. We’ll bring you very practical ways we negotiated with our wallets and our conscience, while still remaining inside the confines of a sometimes very limited budget – Alison living in town in Italy, and Andrea in the United States on a small farm in one of the most expensive states of the union, Washington State.
