You're right LowCarbinChica it's not the same when it's your own pig. I had a pet pot belly pig when I was a kid (yeah, in NY... weird). His name was Vance. Anyway, I couldn't eat him...
I guess if I bought a share in a pig and I never had to see it or feed it personally that might work.

I usually train the teams at their first couple of events. I will DEFINITELY let you know if I can finagle this. Yayyyy, that would be fun.

Do you like the Hans' All Natural Chicken Sausages? They will have Spinach Fontina & Roasted Garlic, and Sun Dried Tomato, Basil & Provolone all through '09.
OooOoOoOOO....let me know when you're in SF

Just so all you young whipper-snappers remember....Wilburrrr was the name of the guy who owned Mister ED the horse. That's how he said his name, Wilburrrr. Arnold was the name of the pig on Green Acres.

I run the roadshow program for our product line at Costcos nationwide. We basically do these 2-3 day long events where we sample the products and have a couple extra items that aren't usually at Costco there to purchase. I'll make sure to post our calendars and locations now that I know there is such a demand for the gluten-free, low carb options out there. Here are the products we have at Costco:

-Coleman Natural All Beef uncured hot dogs

-Coleman Natural Uncured Hickory Smoked Bacon

-Coleman Natural Chicken Meatballs in the following flavors:
*Sun Dried Tomato & Provolone
*Italian Parmesan
*Chipotle Cheddar

-Hans' All Natural Chicken Sausage in the following flavors:
*Spinach, Fontina, & Roasted Garlic
*Spinach & Feta
*Sun Dried Tomato, Basil & Provolone
*Garden Vegetable & Asiago Cheese

-Coleman Organic Fresh chicken
*Boneless Skinless Breasts
*Boneless Skinless Thighs
*Whole Fryers

As I've mentioned before, if your location doesn't have something, PLEASE request it at Costco. They DO listen! We had like 9 requests in a month all over the Midwest for our Hot dogs, so they brought it back after discontinuing the SKU after summer..... Just like with american idol, your vote counts.

I posted this on another thread - one of the Safeways nearby had SO MANY good things in the 50% Off section one day, that by the time I got done shopping (only sale items) the checker had to call the manager to come override the computer - it didn't like it because I had saved 58% overall!
Yes, totally--look for a little area in the meat department where they have markdowns and specials. There is nothing wrong with those products; they are just at the sell-by date. Take them home and freeze what you aren't going to cook within a day and you'll save tons of money.

When you see something on sale, like chicken breasts, buy a family pack and break it up into packages of one or two breasts at home and freeze them.

Also, chicken drumsticks and thighs are so cheap it isn't even funny. I have chicken thighs at least four times a week--sometimes I like to make bone-in, skin-on, but the boneless skinless are so great for recipes, are NOT greasy (as one might expect), and have more flavor than breasts. I love cold leftover drumsticks, so I cook up four at a time and then I have handy snacks or meals.

Best to become friends with your butcher! I told mine I was low carbing and whenever I come in he brings out meat they're just about to mark down from the back (I got a giant half off ribeye!), lets me know what specials they're about to have, and writes me rainchecks after the fact if I've just missed any kind of sale.

Low carb eating on a budget
Posted 03-16-2009 at 12:28 AM by low carb dietitian
Hello,

Just got back from a weekend away….sounds good but it was not a vacation, just a trip to New Jersey to visit a friend. I had a blast as usual and in today’s economy any trip away is a get away!

As I watch the world sink into financial crisis, I thought I might talk about healthy ways to eat while keeping it low carb. It is difficult to dispute that meat is more costly than a box of pasta. As common sense as this may seem, there may be more to this than meets the eye. My line of thinking has always been a little off the beaten path, which is how I ended up in the “Low Carb Camp”. So bear with me, ‘cause my thoughts do make sense.
If you eat a portion of pasta or a 16 oz. box of pasta ($1.00 Stop and Shop brand or Dreamfields is $2.99), it might seem to cost less than a package of chicken thighs but the difference may not be a big as you think.

FOOD COMMPARISONS
ITEM AMOUNT COST/LB
Perdue Cornish Game Hen
1.5 LB $2.98
Perdue Chicken Thighs - 5 ct
2 LB $3.98
Nature's Promise Chicken Thighs Antibiotic Free Natural 1.7 LB $3.83
Nature's Promise Beef Ground 85% Lean Natural
1 LB $3.99
Nature's Promise Beef Ground 75% Lean Natural
1 LB $2.99
Nature's Promise Beef Ground 85% Lean Natural
(on sale) 1 LB $3.99

However, you are going to get hungry after that pasta and end up eating at least twice as much, maybe more. Why?

For one reason, because your are gonna have a huge glucose load, your body will try to balance this and your blood sugar is gonna take a quick dive.

Another reason is just that pasta is not filling. It is a carbohydrate that has no fiber and little if any nutrients, so you need to eat a lot to feel full.

OOPS, almost forgot to factor in the fact that no one eats pasta plain, so you must add oil or tomato sauce that should get factored into the cost and carb content.

Let me just say, I am not a big fan of eating pasta and oil or butter because combining high amounts of carbohydrates with high amounts of fat is one of the many contributors to the obesity epidemic. You must walk a fine “tightrope” line when you start combining fats and starches.

On the other hand, eating a couple of chicken thighs, you can season with pepper, oregano, curry or any herb/spice, to give yourself the protein and fat to satisfy your belly!

So, be a smart shopper and think before you stroll down the pasta aisle to save a few bucks. You might be surprised that the cost of weight loss or maintaining your weight when eating low carb foods is not as expensive as you think.

Here is a list of protein foods that will help keep expenses down while still doing the right thing for you. Remember, look for sales or managers’ specials. Many times if the date on the package of food is expiring within a day, it will have a great price.

10 Low Cost Low Carb Protein Sources

1. Canned tuna (use Tongol tuna)
2. Canned salmon
3. Eggs
4. Chicken
5. Turkey
6. Ground meat
7. Nitrite free Hot dogs
8. Peanut butter
9. Cottage cheese
10. Any meat on sale


In good health,

Oh yeah. I could never eat a PET!!! But buying a pig from a farm that I might see once before it ends up in my freezer works for me.

See, I think I would be weirded out by seeing it once. I'd know what color it was, how big it was, where it lived.... too much!

I was a vegetarian in high school for a while after freaking because I was at a bbq where they'd served the cow I thought had been their pet (had a name and everything!)

A pig would be even harder than a cow, because they're really intelligent animals...

I check the supermarket ads that come in the mail. Each store generally has a meat item on sale each week that you can stock up on and save lots of $$$. Last week one of my local markets had their chicken breast on sale for 1.99. I loaded up on 20 lbs and packaged it into individual freezer burn ziplock bags. Now I have chicken for days!

I've also been saving money by trying to listen to my body. Before I would eat until stuffed, but now I just try to eat regular portions. If I eat an animal protein at lunch, it's usually 3 oz (cooked weight) and at dinner 4 oz. I generally try not to go above that. To compensate I will add low-glycemic/low-carb veggies and lots of fat.

One of my favorites is beef chuck roasts for an amazing pot roast. On sale it's usually $1.99/lb. Of course it doesn't come out right unless I roast it in a gorgeous $300 Le Crueset dutch oven, LOL.

I also stock up on whole chickens when they're less than 50 cents a pound, and thighs/drumsticks can be found for 39 cents a pound pretty often. I don't bother with the frozen bags of skinless/boneless meats because they add so much liquid fillers, it exaggerates the weight. Plus they're all slimy. Eww.

Pork roasts (even tenderloin) are sometimes on sale for less than $2 a pound. That's basically my price point for a good deal.

Hooray for Costco and Coleman!!!! I just bought a ton of your organic whole chickens and boneless/skinless thighs -- I love having a good source for organic chicken (besides the extortion pricing at Whole Foods). I've never seen the meatballs -- I'm going to have to go look for them. Freezer section? or deli section?

When I am making a recipe which uses ground beef, I add half the amount as ground turkey. I don't care for the flavor of turkey alone, but it is really good as a combo with the beef. The beef adds the fat and flavor, the turkey actually contributes a good texture when they combine. Turkey is much cheaper where I live.

They're in the open refrigerated meats section at "my" Costco. They're so yummy - we like the Italian ones with a jar of Trader Joe's 3 cheese marinara, over spaghetti squash.

The Chipotle Cheddar ones make a great appetizer with a jar of Tostitos Salsa con Queso as a dip!

Porkfat, I'm glad you like our products!!! The meatballs would be in the deli section (fresh, never frozen BTW). But it's past meatball season, so only a few regions carry them right now. Whereabouts are you?

I guess it's one of the few benefits of living in Texas, meat country. Food and land are both dirt cheap.
