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!

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.

Maw - I just wanted to stop by and say that I think maintaining and not gaining like you have been doing is a HUGE accomplishment. It's hard to stay on track when you aren't seeing "progress"
But like you said you do consider this progress.

Good job!!!

Could you add a snack thread to the recipe section? that way all 4 posts are set up looking the same.

If you think I should set up 3 sets ( lunch, dinner, snacks ) in the main section, please let me know, and I will start them for tomorrow. My only fear is that we end up with 2 sets , splitting the information, so that people have to search more for ideas.

Right now, I am just in limbo. Wondering whether to set them up, so we can see if more people use them located in general discussion, or if I should just not do that, and hope people use the ones in the recipe section.
