Are you trying to be healthy on the keto diet while being on a budget?An easy way to keep costs down is to make delicious chicken recipes that are keto diet friendly.
Being on the ketogenic diet does not mean you should spend a lot of money. Chicken is one of the most versatile meats that can be easily seasoned and flavored to anything you like.
The best part about using chicken on the keto diet is that it’s quick and easy to cook (especially for those who dont have alot of time to cook) and its low cost.
Quick Note: Buy packs of chicken breasts or thighs on sale or in bulk and freeze what you aren’t using. Every once in awhile check with the organic chicken breasts prices, sometimes they will get really cheap so I like to buy those because it can be a real steal.
Like I said earlier, chicken can handle any seasoning or flavors you would like to add to it which is amazing because you won’t get bored. Don’t let the fact that you have a tight budget deter you from making delicious healthy meals.
There are so many amazing keto chicken recipes out there but I know these recipes will keep your on your monthly food budget, help you lose weight and stay healthy in the long term.
