Lowest Cost Lowest Carb Food

I'd say the lowest cost, lowest carb food would be eggs. I can buy 48 count of eggs at Costco for ~$3.42. That's about 7cents each. Anyone else?

my budget

my budget is such that i cannot do dairy so have to alternatives that are very expensive Tofuetti sour cream 3.99 for 8 oz and the same for cram cheese the only chese i can eat is goat chees is goat cheese or vegan cheese so what money i have goees for that ( we are one income on diasabliity) so i end up going to food pantrys and am very thankful for them. That being said it means a good part fo what i get is high starch high carb. (i am passing my high carb suff in to others who can use it but it is discouraging) especially when i have to make subsitutions and the stuff for the substitutions are expensive as anyone with food allergies will attest

This is so helpful. I am trying to figure out for 10 days what to eat. I have a 10 gift card for Walgreens, and 25. But, I need to spend money on gas and parking for school

So, I am thinking 10 for walgreens and 10 outside. What should I buy??

I have a dozen of eggs, 3 cans of canned salmon, head of lettuce, little broc.

Keep in mind, I am very active, and workout a lot. I will get paid on the 17th, but being a doctoral student is no joke. lol

So, is this doable?? I guess the good thing is I might lose a few lbs and become more disciplined by being forced to a budget. Usually this is not the issue and I have plenty of money for food, but week was thrown off when I did not work over spring break.

Breathe... I can do this somehow. I need to find food that will LAST me, not just here and there. What I have right now is not enough to live on for ten days, no matter how I try to perceive this.

thoughts?

You are better off getting a whole chicken and roasting it, then cutting it up for different meals.... chicken salad, etc, then using the carcass to make a good stock. You ideally want the less expensive dark cuts of meat with the skin because you really do need the fat. I do not cut out veggies, I just stick to green beans and cauliflower while in induction.

WOE: Just following low carb
Start Date: December 2015 {again}
THANKS for these threads - - I had 'gotten lost' for a few months there -my 'oomph' has gone out of me and I don't like that at all - that isn't me -now, I'm back [again] -but with a determination this time - - my boyfriend doesn't like low carb stuff and says I don't make stuff he likes, so . . . . I'm going to do what I have to do - for my health and well being -

I'm not sure where this really belongs but my low budget tip would be this:

I'm a student so sticking to a budget is important to me and when I started this new WOE I bought (invested in!) some small snack lunchboxes so I can buy bigger packs of things and get several days' food out of them as I take little picnics wherever I go. This reduces waste and also saves me money as I don't spend on food when I am out and about. I can weigh and track more easily too and by having small containers it discourages me from just eating the whole packet of things when I don't really need to or by taking too much food out for the day when I'm in uni or at work or even visiting family/friends (who are now used to me bringing my own snacks and no longer find it rude or odd!)

Other obvious ones might be:

I buy big bags of frozen prawns and defrost and cook them in snack-sized batches - I can get three 'pots' from a bag which saves me loads as prawns are so expensive when you buy them in snack portions from the supermarket!

I buy frozen vegetables sometimes too, and if they're on offer I definitely try to stock up so by the end of the month when I'm feeling stretched I can still eat low carb, healthily and without spending any more money.

Around here, I have found cheap veggies at Sprouts. Cucumbers and green peppers 4 for $1. Avocados 3 for $1. Almond Milk 2 for $4. I always read the ads on Wednesday and plan grocery shopping accordingly. Have found some places cheaper than Wal-Mart. Bashas around here has the cheapest produce at times.

When it comes to dark chocolate, I discovered that Tuesday Morning carries the higher percentage for $1.99. Cheaper than paying $4!

I have learned sometimes that if you go to stores in the later evening, you can get excellent deals on meat because they are trying to get rid of what they didn't sell earlier in the day.

Thanks for this thread. Am very budget conscious, and lately have been eating HORRIBLE. So when I made up my mind to go back to LC, I had to hit the grocery store hard. Almost 200 bucks, but I got a lot of food...plenty to last awhile...cost is what always ends up derailing me about halfway to goal, but I'm determined to make smart choices this time. This thread helps enormously!!!
