Sure, if you have lots of cash you can have someone source Organic vegetables and pasture-raised protein for you. Hell, you could even pay them to bring it all back to your kitchen, prepare it for you!

It would be real nice, but this is the real world we’re living in here. Most of us can’t make that happen. I know I would love to have a personal forager and my own Chef, but that’s an unnecessary luxury. You don’t need that stuff to eat well, as a human being should. You don’t need piles of cash.

If you don’t have the money that’s OK. You just have to be willing to work a bit for your health. You have to be willing to put in the time! It’s an effort thing.

Using the excuse of not being able to eat a real food diet because of lack of budget is exactly that, an excuse. Get off your ass and make it happen! This is YOUR life we’re talking about here. Not mine. I already eat like a real king.

The very first step is to expand your mind and set some goals around your eating habits. In my honest opinion, the best diet for humans is locally sourced organic fruit and veggies, as well as an occasional serving of locally sourced pasture raised proteins (beef, pork, poultry, etc). Mix these things in with some awesome, fresh grains and legumes. BINGO! You never have to eat processed food ever again, even if you’re reading this from a disgusting dorm room.

 Here’s exactly how you can do it:

  • First, do some research. Are there farms in your area? If not how about co-ops? If not still, are there delivery services of CSA Farms that come close to you?
  • Find your closest warehouse retail store, where you can buy bulk organic grains, dried beans, etc. Find your closest farmers market, if there are none available find your closest supermarket with a decent organic section.
  • What season is it? Local, seasonal fruits and veggies are always the cheapest, whether straight off the farm, or off the shelves at the supermarket.
  • Buy in bulk, things that will last: Rice, Quinoa, Dried Beans, etc.
  • Learn how to make your choices go a long way.
