It's not so much the recipe.....but, buy on sale and things in bulk when you can. Over the summer, I get salmon for $1.99/lb This week, chicken leg qtrs for 39 cents/lb. It's also cheaper to buy a whole chicken and cut it up yourself. Sometimes, there are buy 1/get 1 free offers that are good too. I make LC ketchup and BBQ sauce, and spice blends. I use my food saver. Also, a crock pot is great because you can buy the cheaper (and tough) cuts of meat and they come out great in the crock pot. I don't buy many "special" LC products because they are $$$$$

Coast Friendly Recipes Needed

Thank you, Banshee, you are right. After reading alot of the posts I see recipes that I can use. Maybe the question I should have asked was how do you personally make low carbing cost friendly.
Your money saving tips would be greatly appricated. athanks

I make A LOT of things with hamburger meat because I can get a ton of it for a low price when I buy it in bulk.

Cheeseburger Casserole
Mexicali Hamburger and Cabbage Casserole
Joe's Special
Meatloaf
Burgers (love 'em cold the next day!)
Spaghetti (served over spaghetti squash)

Hamburger....or ground turkey........makes wonderful quiches...offer up quite a few servings for the money and the time it takes to make it.

Eggs are also relatively inexpensive, so if you like egg salad you might want to make a lot of it for the week.

If you make or take lunches aLMOST ANY home cooked roast is less costly than lunch meat. I bake a turkey breast or turkey 2 x a month. Chicken legs and thighs boiled or baked make great cold chicken salads. I get canned Salmon and tuna on sale and stock up.They are great for patties and salads. If you can tolerate the salt , canned corned beef is only $!.00 at Dollar General. Cheese and whipping cream and cream cheese are pretty pricey, but some vegies we can eat are cheep--like rutebagas and celery, cabbage.

I shop Saturday AM's and often find reduced meat of every kind. This includes fish, deli meats, kilbasa, hams, chicken, beef, and 1/2 & 1/2, and heavy whipping cream and sour cream, and pork. I usually go to Kroger, but got many reduced items at Winn Dixie last week. I get reduced stuff at WalMart too. Just take it home and freeze. I have a deep freezer so I have plenty of room
