How to create a healthy diet plan on a cheap budget

There are many ways to eat healthy, satisfying keto meals while staying within your budget. Use canned meat and fish when preparing salads or cooked dishes. Shop for meat on sale and purchase less expensive cuts — such as stew and ground meat — to use in recipes. Include plenty of egg dishes when planning meals. Another budget-friendly move is to buy food in bulk and freeze whatever you don’t use this week. That way, you’ll have food on hand when you plan meals in the weeks ahead.

How can I lose weight on a budget meal plan?

To create a budget-friendly weight loss meal plan, focus on foods that provide a lot of protein per calorie and per dollar. For example, plan to have a generous portion or canned fish, poultry, ground meat, eggs, low-carb dairy, tofu, or another source of cheap protein at every meal. Also, use frozen broccoli, cauliflower, spinach, and other vegetables to save money, time, and prevent more expensive produce from going bad in the fridge.
