|Eating Low-Carb on a Budget Takes Creativity|
At first glance, a low-carb diet can look quite expensive. Especially, since the focus is on meat and other high-cost proteins like cheese. Vegetables and leafy salads make up the bulk of your meals, taking the place of lower priced potatoes, white rice, and pasta on your plate. Bread and tortillas are also gone unless you have enough room in your budget for a few low-carb products. However, many low carbers do not.
The good news is that you can definitely eat low-carb on a budget. It just takes a little thought and planning. The key is to start with the cheapest basics available in your area, find recipes that make good use of those basics, and then branch out with whatever you can afford from there. That might sound easy, but it will take a bit of legwork and planning to pull it all together.
