So, you’ve done your research and you’ve decided you’re going to go for it!
You are SO gonna rock this keto thing!
Ain’t nothin gonna hold you back!
That stupid grocery budget thing you set up when you were feeling all adult-y that day.
And now you’ve got to stick to it cuz you already told your mom and she was so proud she told Aunt Emma and
she told all the girls at bingo…
So now you’re stuck with that
stupid grocery budget and how in the world are you going to do keto and lose weight and finally look better than that stuck up Becky Barnes at your stupid high school reunion?!?
Take a deep breath.
Find your happy place.
I got you!
I have searched for the frugal-est of frugal meals that are all keto-fied.
So now you can stick to your grocery budget (go you!), AND totally outshine Becky Barnes!
All at the same time.
Piece of keto cake!
You don't have to be on an egg fast to enjoy this quiche.
It's easy too, so that's a bonus!
And you really can't get much cheaper than eggs.
Another frugal cheesy egg dish.
Mascarpone makes these eggs so creamy you'll never go back to plain ole scrambled eggs again...
I love a good casserole!
They are great for making up the night before and popping in the oven when you are ready to eat.
Buy your sausage when it's on sale to make this one even cheaper!
If you like a bit of a southwestern flair like I do, you will love this recipe!
There are awesome straight out of the oven, but they're also perfect for a grab and go meal from the fridge.
Also great for a mid afternoon snack before that boring meeting you have to go to at work...just sayin...
These breakfast sandwiches have a little bit of a zip to them as well.
And if you get a spicy sausage, hold me back!
Tuck in a little avocado and you have a breakfast winner for sure!
And seriously, how fun is it to use sausage patties as bread?
And from right here at the Low Carb Keto Kitchen is my cheddar and broccoli quiche.
Perfect for a brunch, great hot or cold, and a pretty frugal breakfast option.
Let's move on over to the sweeter side of breakfast, shall we?
What's a Saturday morning without pancakes?
These cheap and easy keto pancakes are sure to fill that gaping void.
With sugar free syrup, of course.
I'm kinda a sucker for anything pumpkin.
And these pumpkin flaxseed muffins are pretty dang tasty!
This is another great make ahead breakfast option so you can eat on the run.
Eat them cold, or heat them up, either way they are amazing!
Do you miss oatmeal?
I miss oatmeal.
But this overnight chia oatmeal lessens the sting a little bit.
You can add the nuts of your choice and maybe even some berries if you are so inclined.
I usually am so inclined. Blueberries are my favorites...
We used to call these Dutch Baby Pancakes.
This ketofied version is so good, you'll never tell the difference!
Serve with sugarfree syrup, or plain, it's hard to beat.
You can't really go wrong with a salad.
And this cobb salad is
Chicken, bacon, feta cheese...I want one right now...
Not only is this soup delicious, it's packed with nutrition and it's also anti-inflammatory with the addition of the turmeric.
It's a lovely light soup that is great for lunch or a light dinner.
If you are feeling blue because you're missing out on your favorite egg rolls, cheer up!
This wrapper-less egg roll dish has got you covered!
It's fast and easy to prepare, reheats well, and works great for a make ahead meal.
For even less carbs, skip the shredded carrots.
Some like it hot, and if that's you, this may become your go-to soup recipe!
Shredded chicken, taco seasoning, and of course jalapenos are center stage in this soup.
And this one has a bonus too, because you can make it in the instant pot or crockpot.
Don't you just love bonuses?
Here's another instant pot soup that you can do in the crockpot as well.
Nourishing and oh so tasty, this beef and kale soup starts with mineral rich broth and just gets better from there.
Rich and satisfying and perfect for lunch or dinner.
This chicken quesadilla recipe has a special place in my Mexican food loving heart.
Using cheese as the tortilla is genius!
Gives me all the feelz...lol...try it.
You'll be so very happy that you did!
This tuna salad recipe is lovely and fresh and perfect for a lunch that is satisfying and filling, but doesn't weight you down.
Prep the veggies ahead of time for a quicker lunch.
Perfect to take to school or the office.
Or even on a picnic in the park...
Another salad that is great to take on the go.
The avocado gives it a boost in the vitamin and fat content departments.
Make this in little rolls for appetizers at your next get together and bask in the complements of your friends.
Everything you love about lasagna without the carbs.
The tomatoey sauce...
The Italian herbs...
The ooey gooey cheesy goodness.
All right here, folks.
You can make these ahead and reheat under the broiler for a quick lunch.
So there you go!
Let's start with one of my favorites.
These pork chops are so tender and juicy, you'll think you died and gone to hog heaven...
You can fix the rest of your meal while these are baking for a quick and easy dinner that's on the table in under 30 minutes.
Easy, fast, and cheap.
Another Mexican recipe that I love.
And this one uses chicken thighs which are less expensive than the breasts.
And I think they are tastier as well.
Sheet pan dinners are easy to make and easier to clean up.
And who doesn't love that?
I love a good, hearty beef dinner. And this keto beef stroganoff is no exception.
No white rice and no pasta means it's low on carbs but it's big on flavor.
This dish has the OG awesome sauce flavored with onions and mushrooms.
So much to love here!
This amazing Shepherd's Pie is made with lamb and topped with cauliflower instead of mashed potatoes.
If lamb isn't in the budget, simply substitute ground beef or even ground turkey.
It's really good with which ever protein you have in the freezer.
Another awesome sheet pan dinner here. Don't you just love those?
I try to serve fish at least one night a week.
This one has become one of my go-to fish recipes.
Tilapia is a mild fish, so even if you don't like "fishy" fish, give this one a try!
I love this pizza casserole.
Everything I love about pizza without the carb-y gluten-y crust.
And, you can use your favorite toppings so you can have it your way.
Like Burger King.
This chicken dish is simple and elegant.
Fancy enough for a dinner party, but quick and easy enough for a week night dinner.
The recipe calls for reduced fat cheese, but here in keto land we go full fat.
You can sub chicken thighs for the breasts to make it a more frugal meal.
I love skillet meals almost as much as I love sheet pan meals.
So easy to clean up after.
And chances are good the family will clean up this Mexican Zucchini and Beef Skillet.
As in, no leftovers...
Simple ingredients in one skillet always equals genius in my book.
From right here at the Low Carb Keto Kitchen comes this quick Chicken Alfredo.
Another skillet meal, of sorts.
This one uses left over cooked chicken and is served over spaghetti squash "noodles".
You'll never miss the pasta!
Another one from here on the blog. And this one is another skillet meal.
Told you I love them.
And this one also uses precooked chicken.
So another option if you have left over chicken from another meal.
I think this is probably one of our most favorite meals of all time.
It really is that good.
But don't take my word for it, make some tonight and you'll see!
30 days of cheap keto meals that will keep you in ketosis
and keep you in the black.
Emma and the girls gonna be so proud!
Peace, love, and keto on!
If you loved it, put a pin in it!
