I would love some good budget friendly low carb ideas. I have to go to the store tomorrow and I want to get some good, cheap low carb stuff to get me through the week. It is difficult because I eat a lot. My husband does too. He is also low carbing.
I love following this post! I love to see pics when people post. And what creativity Cleo has!! I love all her stuff. Anyway, onto the budget friendly low carb ideas. I have a family of 6 and we live on one income. I watch the sales for everything and stock up when I can. Yes, I do have an outside freezer and it is stocked!! When Food Lion put their skinless, boneless chicken breast on sale for $1.79 I filled my freezer. Then when the Bi-Lo put their chicken breast on sale for $1.59 I stocked up again!!! I rarely buy meat full price---I always shop the mark downs. As long as it gets eaten that day/night or put right away in the freezer, it doesn't matter so much the date...to me anyway!! I bought a ham after the holidays for $9....original price $27!! You just have know your prices and where to look for things where you shop. When the Wal-Mart down the street from me opened up this summer they had a sale on Philadelphia cream cheese. It was a dollar a box. Right now it is $1.72 a box You bet every time I went in to Wal-Mart I walked out with at least 4 boxes!! Every time they went on sale for the holidays at any store I would stock up. At least 4 boxes every trip. I used up my last box this weekend for my cream cheese muffins and the dates were all still good!!!

I see you are in FL. I love Publix because they do buy one get one free specials. Not many of those items are low carb, but they will put their nuts ( I just bought the Emerald brand of cashews) and canned chicken or tuna on that special. I try to buy those when they are on sale like that. What I also love is when I have a coupon on those specials because Publix does double coupons here. I know that eggs are not cheap any longer--I think anything over $1 for a dozen is expensive--but they will fill you up!! I love Linda Sue's quiches....the bacon swiss quiche is a family favorite. I agree that the casseroles on her site are a good budget saver. Cook once and eat off it a few times!! Love those kind of meals. I also really like Kroger. They have the 10 for $10 very often. I buy my produce and frozen veggies that way. Avocados, cole slaw (yes, I am lazy!!), shredded lettuce. Try to buy in season too. Oh, and soup is good too!!! One pot of soup can last for days. I love cauliflower soup--take one carton of chicken stock/chicken broth, add 1 recipe of mashed cauliflower and cheddar cheese. You have a great soup that lasts days. That is one of my DD's favorites. She is 8 and very picky!! I know this post is very long and has no pictures, but wanted to share my ideas for stretching a buck. Hope you get more ideas!!

How do you make the wraps? Just by using the pizza crust recipe? Sounds good.

Thanks Dawn. I watch sales like a hawk............and collect coupons. The only store here that does double coupons is Harris Teeter. They also do some good sales. I do most of my shopping at Walmart and Winn Dixie because they are closest, but if Publix or Harris Teeter has a good sale item, I travel and make it worth my trip by stocking up.

Tonight, we are having eggs that I bought for .99 a dozen and bacon I got BOGOF so I got 2 pounds for $2.74. Oh, and I'll add cheese that I got on sale at walmart when they had their shredded cheese for $1.25 a bag. I love eating on a budget.

Thanks for your tips. Keep 'em coming.

Goodnight everyone..............we need some more pics on here. I didn't post my dinner tonight because I just had eggs and bacon. Although, I did put some cream cheese in with the scrambled eggs and boy were they fluffy. They were rich too so they filled me up pretty fast. I had coffee with sf syrup for dessert. It was a good day.

Ground beef, broccoli, onion, cream, butter, parmesan cheese..............I'm full.

Thanks for the pics. I'll do the pizza for Valentine's (better than candy). I'll go look up the recipes. They look yummy.

I used a fondant cutter for the pepperoni hearts (found at Hobby Lobby) and for the cheese here in my broccoli cheese soup. So fun!

Here's another...

I tried baking them in the oven and they did not turn out right at ANY temp that I used, so I broke out the fryer and did 'em like fries....OMG what a difference! LOVE,LOVE,LOVE them! Will make for lunch tomorrow and get a pic then!
Also want to make the Dorito chips...got the stuff, will be making them up tomorrow.
