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. But don't let that first look fool you. Low-carb dining can be quite affordable.

Vegetables and leafy greens make up the bulk of your low-carb meals, taking the place of lower priced staples like:
  • potatoes
  • white rice
  • bread
  • and pasta
However, the belief that potatoes and rice are cheaper than salad, and therefore, more affordable is steeped in illusion. People eating a high-starch, high-sugar diet are often consuming lots of extra calories that their body doesn't need. 

So the good news is this:

You can definitely eat low-carb on a budget. In fact, when I was eating at 20 net carbs a day, we were spending less money on food than we were when we were eating lots of bread, rice, and potatoes.

In this blog post, I'm going to introduce you to 12 cheap low-carb recipes and food ideas that you can use right now to trim your low-carb budget along with the pounds.
