What's a girl to do? How will I continue on this path and still get healthy?
I have to realize, I can only do the best I can. I may not always be able to eat organic or grass fed. I may have to purchase regularly processed meats at times. I will have to purchase commercially grown vegetables and skip the free range eggs. I'm OK with that. Don't get me wrong, I will make the best choices I can but they might not always be perfect. Why you might ask, because that is what's going to be available to me. That is going to be what I can afford... for now. Isn't that one of the most essential parts of living a new lifestyle? Doing the best we can?
Does this mean that I am any less "Primal" than someone that can afford to always have the great stuff? Some would say yes. I personally don't believe so. I am doing the best I can in a time that is monetarily lean and product limited. I have not thrown in the towel and decided to have grains and fill my home with inexpensive processed foods. I am making the best choices for me and for my family that I can make now knowing, that things will look up again soon and I will be able to get back to a more natural way of eating.
A few final thoughts: If you are not starting because you can't live it to the letter, I don't think that is a valid reason. Do the best you can with what you have and you will still reach your goals! It may just be a curvier road...
