How to Eat Low Carb on a Budget

Eat Low Carb on a Budget #lowcarb #keto #healthyonabudget
When I first started my healthy lifestyle journey, I was NOT savvy at all when it came to budgeting my new diet. Like at all. I thought in order to be healthy I’d have to spend a ton and that was that. Boy was I wrong! There are so many ways to budget your low carb lifestyle that I’m constantly kicking myself for what I used to spend before.

Here are the tips & tricks I’ve learned through years of trial and error.

Low Carb Breakfast Recipes (That Aren’t Eggs!)

Low Carb Breakfast Recipes
I have a love/ hate relationship with eggs. Sometimes I’ll make the yummiest, yolk porn worthy eggs and other times I can’t even stand the smell of them.

As a low carber, you really get stuck with the notion that you can only have eggs for breakfast. But, after some Pinterest research and a ton of trial & error recipe testing, I have found the best, most delicious low carb breakfast recipe that Pinterest and all the interwebs have to offer.

Friday Faves!

Happy Friday & happy long weekend! Whenever there is a three day weekend, I always plan a lot of things – hang out with friends, clean the house, workout every day, plan an epic meal prep, and try a little self-care to finish up the weekend.

Most of that turns into shoulda, woulda, coulda & I spend my weekend sipping margaritas & lounging in front of Netflix. This weekend will be different! No, really I swear. I’ve rounded up my favorite recipes, must reads, the most shoppable sales & an easy self-care routine to stick to even if I do sip one too many drinks.

MUST SIP

Citrus Summer Sangria

With summer coming to an end, I wanted a really citrusy & fun drink. This sangria is super refreshing, flavorful and is the perfect drink to send off summer!

SELF CARE

I wrote this post about my favorite ways to treat myself in the evening before I go to sleep. My routine has gotten a  little off track, but these activities are SO doable that there really is no excuse. I’ll be incorporating this routine back into my nightly rituals!

MUST EAT

This pasta dish is good, loaded with veggies & bursting with flavor. Definitely a lighter take on the typical mayo laden pasta side dish.

What is Keto?

When you eat something high in carbs, your body produces glucose. Glucose will then be used as energy instead of fat, which will be stored. When you substantially lower your carb intake, typically to 25 grams of carbohydrates a day, your body goes into Ketosis where you’ll use fat for energy.

The goal of limited your dieting & getting to top ketone levels is many health, weight loss, physical & mental performance benefits.
