The 21 Day Sugar Detox is winding down and I knew that the Whole Foods in El Segundo is having a sale today on wild caught sockeye salmon for $8/lb instead of $17/lb, so I met my girlfriend there during my lunch break so I could stock up(and she would take them home to freeze). Turns out she had already picked up 2lbs earlier today but I wanted some more. I decided on getting an additional 8lbs to turn our haul into an even 10lbs. After loading up on my salmon fillets, I decided to check out the meat counter to see if they had any deals going on not thinking there would be anything significant, but when I got there, I discovered something even more amazing.
That’s right. Grass fed ground beef for $1.99/lb originally priced at $7.99/lb! I had to ask the butcher if that price was right. When he said yes indeed it was, I thought for a brief moment, ‘thank God for my deep freezer’ and then asked for 15lbs. The butcher gave me a confused look at first and asked me to repeat myself. I told him yes, I do in fact, want 15lbs of the 2 dollar grass fed ground beef. Turns out, 15lbs of ground beef is what those trays in the display case hold as I took out the entire amount and he had to replace it with a fresh tray.
I ended up leaving WF with the same usual subtotal around $100 but this time, I had over 25lbs of wild caught/grass fed meat in my cart. Not a bad deal at all. I might go back after work and grab some more! They have other stuff on sale too from fryer chickens at $1/lb to wild caught cod and sardines at $4/lb. If you’re in the LA area, do yourself a favor and grab some of this ridiculously cheap yet high quality meat. This will definitely keep me going until the end of the 21 DSD and beyond.
