Eating within your low carb budget.. Several threads included

Here are a couple threads about lowcarbing while on a budget.... After reading these you will see people can do this without breaking the bank..

Great idea! I know we can't afford steaks and chops, expensive seafood, and even eating out is not on our budget anymore, but we can still eat well. We may be blessed because we don't depend on any products that would not normally be in our kitchen other than nut flours. It can be done and I love it that people share what they have learned. I'm subscribing too.

Thank you for posting these. This is my second time on LC and the first time it was lots of RibEyes (not that I minded) but it does tend to get pricey.

I would love to be able to have steak all the time, but unfortunately I just can't afford it. I've been low carbing since July and haven't had a steak yet. I definitely owe it to myself to splurge on one, but it will have to wait. Thank you for this thread and all the wonderful ideas on how to save money.
