Inexpensive Keto Recipes

The ketogenic diet consists of proteins, vegetables, and good fats. It cuts out ‘filler’ foods such as starches and sugars. This in turn improves both your palate and your health. However, by eliminating the cheapest foods, keto recipes have gained a reputation for expense. Still, it doesn’t have to be that way.  Hence, we’ve written a guide for inexpensive recipes for the Carnivore Diet *[insert link]. The advice there also applies to the animal protein side of the ketogenic diet. Meanwhile, this essay explores ways to supply inexpensive recipes and ingredients for the plant-based side of the ketogenic diet. 

 

Storing Ingredients for Inexpensive Recipes

Before we discuss buying in bulk let’s talk about where to keep the ingredients for your keto recipes. You’ll need a place to store food, or several. A cold place would be best -- nuts keep best when refrigerated, and obviously fresh vegetables do as well. Fortunately, when you’ve gotten rid of processed foods and condiments, you should have some extra space. Just make certain that you’re prepared for your purchases before you make them.

 

Bulk Ingredients for Keto Recipes

Buying in bulk is not only cheaper, but it can net you fresher food overall.  For example, when you shop at a farmer’s market you can verify that your purchases are truly organic. Furthermore, if you blanch, portion, and freeze those vegetables they’ll be both fresher and cheaper than anything in the supermarket freezer case. The same goes for nuts and seeds. Buy them in bulk and shell them yourself for not only considerable savings but better quality.

 

Double Inexpensive Recipes When Cooking

Now that you have a stockpile of ingredients, you can double each keto recipe you make. Of course, with its 85 square inches of cooking space, the Cinder Grill batch cooks superbly.  Keeping a meal in reserve comes in handy in multiple ways. Not only will this help you avoid the expenses of eating out, but it will also prevent you from needing to search out ketogenic diet options, or worse, accidentally eating something that counters your diet. 

 

The Ketogenic Diet: New Foods, New Sources

While you’re learning this new foodway, take the opportunity to broaden your horizons.  Try basing inexpensive recipes on new foods, and finding new lower-cost sources for them. For example, hemp seeds. Increasingly popular these days, they offer the rich flavor of pine nuts at a fraction of the price. Furthermore they’re packed with protein and healthy fats. Rather than buying small stale bags at the grocery store, try an online retailer such as Nuts.com . You’ll be surprised at what interesting new foods you can find.

The ketogenic diet offers the chance to reorganize your personal foodways for the better. A little planning ahead can help you make the most of this opportunity without breaking your budget. Especially when you have the Cinder Grill to help!
