1. Keep it simple.

Paleo doesn't have to be a list of complicated ingredients whipped together. A small amount of meat (eg. steak), a whole heap of greens and low GI vegetables combined with a bit of fat and some homemade sauerkraut. When you get a bit bored with that, then start experimenting occasionally with the fancier ingredients.



2. Grow whatever you can.

Grow from seeds or get some seedlings. You can start small and get bigger or go all out from the get go. Lack of space should never be an excuse with vertical gardens, window planter boxes and pots.



3.Shop seasonally.
When shopping at your local farmer's market not only are you supporting the farmers, you are getting your produce cheaper than what you would pay in the supermarket for it and it's probably a lot fresher. You can often source meat and eggs there too.

4. Buy direct from the farmer.
Google free range/grass fed farms in your local area. If you have a deep freezer you could buy half an animal and be set for the year. It will work out a lot cheaper than buying in smaller portions regularly.

5.Shop on mark down day.

Every supermarket has a day when they discount the meat to make way for the new stock coming in. The same applies for all the free range and grass fed products so buy up big and freeze it when it's cheaper.



6.Lower your consumption of other toxins in your home.

Cleaning products, garden care, perfumes, personal care, bug spray etc. There are plenty of natural alternatives including vinegar, lemon juice bi carb or essential oils.



7. Get moving.



Get outside and take advantage of good weather. Do some resistance exercise and strengthen your body. You don't need fancy equipment or a gym membership as there are lots of body weight or dumbbell exercises you can do and still get results.
