By having a full pantry of low carb foods and basic low carb staples it will allow you it will help you stay on track with your way of eating and allow you to make a variety of low carb recipes ensuring you do not get stuck having the same meals all the time. Many people eat out a lot when first going low carb, while this is ok in a quick fix cooking at home is the best because you control the ingredients that go into your food so you know there are not any hidden carbs or cooking oils that are not optimal for health.

Exploring new low carb recipes can be a great way for your family to connect with each other, I highly suggest you look into low farmers markets as well. Farmer markets are a great way to save monty and at the same time you can teach your children food doesn’t come from a 20,000 sq foot store, there are people that actually work hard to bring food to the table.

Low Carb Grocery List:

The corner stone of any low carb meal is the protein and fat that make up meat. There are hundreds of different custs of meat but I will list here the most common, but feel free to get creative.

Meats:

  • Boneless Chicken Breast
  • Chicken Thighs and Drums

These can be used in a pinch, check the sodium content, when going low carb and avoiding prepackaged foods your total sodium count in your diet will often be less so you don’t have to worry as much too much sodium can make you retain water and stall your weight loss if you are looking at the scale.
