Low-carb on a budget

Filed under: Low-carb Tips — Tags: — @ August 29, 2005

One of the common things we hear about low-carb diets is that they are hard to follow on a budget (some even call low-carb a diet of the “rich”). High-carb foods such as bread and pasta are cheap, while foods like meats and cheeses are much harder on the wallet. Our friends at eDiets have an article about how to be low-carb on the cheap.

Tips in the article include:

* Stock up – buy the more expensive things in quantity, because the unit price is lower that way.
* Limit “low-carb” packaged food – all packaged food is more expensive, so make your own low-carb fare.
* Buy inexpensive nuts, instead of the ultra-expensive macadamia nuts – Many recipes call for expensive types of nuts (including macadamia), but you can use walnuts or almonds and save.
