How to Do Carnivore Diet Cheap and Still Eat Amazing Meals

If you should believe all the young and beautiful carnivore diet promoters, then your only option is grass-fed ribeye steaks. That is BS if you’ll excuse my French and the pun. How to do carnivore diet cheap? By going for cheaper meat and fish and still stay healthy.

A short while ago, a close friend asked me for a shopping list to go carnivore. So I wrote down what we typically buy once a week and what our meals consist of.

Carnivore Diet Meal Plan Free

We are two persons in our household, so we buy double what I’ve mentioned here. But to make it easier for you, I will list the diet meal plan and shopping list here for one person. Then you can multiply so it fits your household.

Menu:

Sunday:
Morning: 250 g ground beef with 3 fried eggs
Evening: 250 g ground lamb with 1 fried egg

Monday:
Morning: scrambled eggs (4) mixed with 50 g butter and 1/2 tsp salt and one can of cod liver
Evening: chicken liver and hearts fried in butter or fat

Tuesday:
Morning: scrambled eggs (4) mixed with 50 g butter and 1/2 can of sardines (save the rest in a Tupperware bowl).
Evening: baked salmon fried in butter

Wednesday:
Morning: 250 g ground beef with 3 fried eggs
Evening: 250 g ground beef with 1 fried egg

Thursday:

Evening: 250 g ground beef and 1 fried egg

Saturday:
Morning: smoked salmon and scrambled eggs (like above) of 4 eggs
Evening: 250 g ground lamb with 1 fried egg

Shopping list:

30 eggs
Butter
1 can of cod liver
1 big can of sardines or two small
1 kg ground beef
250 g smoked salmon
500 g ground lamb
250 g salmon
250 g steak – preferably with fat
250 g chicken liver and hearts (ca. 125 g of each)

Once a month: salmon roe instead of cod liver.

You can also buy cod roe instead of cod liver for some weeks.

Carnivore Diet Menu

As you can see, the carnivore diet menu doesn’t have to be expensive.

If you can afford grass-fed beef that’s great. But avoiding toxic vegetables is more important. Ground beef from the supermarket works fine.

Don’t take my word for it, though. Here’s a video by one of my favorite YouTubers, dr. Ken D. Berry:

He lists the following food:

  • bacon
  • ground beef
  • eggs
  • sardines
  • hot dogs/bologna/sausages/spam/
  • liver (beef, lamb, chicken, pork)

And he saves the melted grease from the bacon in a stainless steel container on the kitchen desk. You don’t have to keep it in the refrigerator, because there is no sugar in it that will attract bacteria.

Be Creative

At first, I followed recipes. But as soon as I felt more confident, I began to experiment. The ingredients are rather simple, but you can bake, fry, cook, mix, or in other ways make them taste and look differently.

Everything is allowed as long as you stick with carnivore ingredients (meat, fish, poultry, eggs, butter) and salt.

And yes, it’s even possible to be carnivore and be on a budget.
