When it comes to choosing dinner recipes, I pick the ones with fewest ingredients and the biggest bang for the buck. This low carb chicken recipe fits all of my super simple dinner recipe criteria. Recipes like this one, with minimal steps where I can throw it together at 4:30 and dinner is on the table right after 5; are key for me.

Resources To Save You Time And Money While Eating Low Carb On A Budget

A huge time and money saver for me has been using Plan To Eat where I can import recipes from around the web, schedule them in my recipe planner, and the program automatically creates a grocery list from my planned recipes. It also saves me money on groceries because I have exactly what I need on my list for the week. I could write an entire post on this alone, with all the features and ways it makes my life easier! It's why I've been a yearly member since 2013.

Another time and money saver is Instacart, because I can shop for what I need and see the total before I checkout. How many times have you gotten to the checkout counter in the grocery store and been floored by the total bill! Instacart allows me to see and make changes to my cart and I always have the running total before checkout so I can budget more effectively.
