Second Deirdra's suggestion of adding egg whites. For the past two years focusing on Protein first, my first meal of the day is often 2 whole eggs, and 4-6 oz of carton egg whites. That limits the fat from eggs while still eating the full complement of nutrients in the yolk, then adding pure low fat protein for satiety. I also buy low fat cottage cheese and yogurt at Costco for a high protein start to the day.

Chicken breast prices went from $2.99 a pound to $3.59 just a bit ago. I think the reason is bird flu. If so, egg prices might soon shoot up too.

In Maine we had been hearing that turkey breast would go to $6 per pound and whole turkey to $5 per pound by Thanksgiving. We bought early and were able to get three turkey breasts for about $2 per pound and an 18-pound turkey for less than $8, if you can believe it. I looked yesterday and saw they had a bunch of turkey breasts left, but they were almost four times the price they were before (around $7 per pound now).

We ended up doing ham and a Jenny O turkey loin for Thanksgiving, way easier and about the same price as regular turkey. It went over really well so we may have started a new tradition 😂

I found local, cage free brown eggs for $2.79dz at the local butcher shop, so happy about that! I bought 3 dozen. I noticed an older lady had 6 dozen in her cart, along with several packages of meat. She looked awesome for her age and Iím guessing she was another low carber 🙂

I donít know if this will help anyone but if youíre in the U.S. and have a Samís Club near by, theyíre running an online 60% off membership deal right now. I just got a year membership for $20, instead of the regular $50 price! The only catch is it will auto-renew every year, But you can cancel anytime and arenít obligated to renew. I donít know if you can get the discount if you go into the store to get a membership or if itís an online only offer? I downloaded their app after getting my membership and it has my digital card there, that I think I can use in person at the store. I believe theyíll mail me a real card too.

Iím going tomorrow to see what low carb funds I can score 🙂
