Keto: Budget-friendly #3

Keto doesn’t have to be expensive. With a little planning and know-how, you can be both keto and thrifty! This week we’ve focused on cheaper yet still very tasty ingredients. We also use the same ingredients in more than one meal so you can buy them in bulk.

To cut your costs even more, buy regular cheese, especially on sale, rather than specialty cheeses that are much more pricey. Don’t buy pre-­shredded cheese; buy cheese in large or bulk sizes and shred/grate it yourself.  Shredded cheese can be frozen in small batches for quick use and no risk of spoilage. Use fresh vegetables when they are in season, but buy frozen the rest of the year. Frozen meats, too, are usually cheaper. Here you’ll find more money saving low-carb tips.

A tip to save some precious morning time is to prepare the Keto eggs on the go on the Sunday afternoon or on the Monday morning, and then have them ready for a fast breakfast each day of the week.

This meal plan will keep you below 18 net carbs per day.

Keto: Budget-friendly #4 (16:8)

This ketogenic meal plan (below 16 g net carbs per day) will keep both your carb intake and your costs down. But don’t worry, your taste buds and your satisfaction won’t be a casualty of lower costs. These meals are far from boring. And they’re filling, too. You won’t be hungry between meals — especially if you are keto-adapted and used to intermittent fasting)!

We have focused on affordable low-carb ingredients such as ground beef, chicken thighs, canned tuna, and cauliflower. Then we’ve added a lot of flavor with delicious cheeses and spices.

If you want to cut costs even more you can replace the avocado in the tuna salad (if you are not lucky enough to find avocados on sale) with more vegetables. A drizzle of some extra olive oil on the salad will compensate for the reduction of fat from the avocado. You can also substitute any of cheeses in the recipes for other types of cheese that you may find on sale.

In this weekly meal plan we are also skipping breakfast to boost weight loss and provide other health benefits. Read more about fasting here. And of course, by skipping a meal each day you are saving even more money, and you’re saving precious time, too.
