LOWCARBING ON A BUDGET

Ever think that low carbing has to be expensive? It doesn't, and I'm out to prove it. I'll be posting menus, recipes, shopping lists, and prices for low carb eating. I have done a modified Food Stamps Challenge for the past couple of years, limiting my purchases to $100 for the month and only eating what I purchased with my food stamps money. It can be done. And without eating ramen or mac 'n' cheese!

Ever think that low carbing has to be expensive? It doesn't, and I'm out to prove it. I'll be posting menus, recipes, shopping lists, and prices for low carb eating. I have done a modified Food Stamps Challenge for the past couple of years, limiting my purchases to $100 for the month and only eating what I purchased with my food stamps money. It can be done. And without eating ramen or mac 'n' cheese!

A couple of things you should know. First, these menus aren't exciting. After all, food should be a source of nutrition, not entertainment. There's a lot of duplication and a lot of leftovers. That's the way I eat. Living alone and cooking for one will do that to a menu.

Second, prices are those I've seen here in Idaho the last couple of weeks. Most are regular prices, not sale prices. Your prices, of course will be different.

Third, these are not "real" menus, in that I've just made them up on paper. I'm living with my parents at the moment and low carb is freaking them out enough without adding a budget element to it! But I have done it in the past for real.

budget Maw, I was reading your challenges and was particularly interested in the thanksgiving menu and how to use the left overs. My aunt and Uncle are going through a really rough time right now and I wondered if you'd mind if I copied those two blogs to an email and sent it to them in case it might give them some ideas they could use. as far as I know neither is on Sparkpeople. thanks, Kitty

Not right here, though there was a small tornado 20 miles or so south oif here. Not even any damage around here that I know of. They lost two schools and a fire station in Kokomo, and a bunch of houses and businesses. One tornado in the state was on the ground for 20 miles! We were really lucky. There was an almost solid band of storms, and we just happened to have a gap in the band pass over us.

Thanks for asking, Kris.

Maw, hope you are doing OK. No tornadoes where you are, I hope.

There's my blog here, where I do the FSC. I have a lot of recipes on it, though I guess I haven't put any up recently. My other blog is a column The Weekly Special with Mary Anne in the Mother Hubbard's Cupboard blog. It's at http://mhcfoodpantry.org/category/blog/ Sorry it doesn't link automatically from here.

I do envy you all the fresh fish, especially salmon, though I do understand that it can get old. And I would definitely miss the fresh veggies, though I don't really eat very many, except in the summer when I can get them at the Farmers Market.
