Budget Low Carb is all about staying warm! Winter still lurks and stout March breezes push insistently from the sidelines. Because of this, the months leading into spring are jam-packed with one-pot-low-carb-wonders such as low carb pot roast, low carb soups, low carb stews, and low carb hash. It’s easy to low carb these one-pot phenoms by simply substituting a high fiber, low carb veg in place of carby nonsense like pasta, potatoes, and rice. Great low carb, high fiber veggie substitutes include turnips, cauliflower, green beans, broccoli, cabbage, radishes, even a tiny bit of rutabaga–even though rutabaga is a higher carb choice.
All our favorite holidays are over. Mere memories. We’re firmly in March, and the camp counselors of life think we need some more holidays to keep us cheered up, and washing dishes. St. Patrick’s Day is coming, of course, but that apparently isn’t enough for the Merry Makers. So they tell us that March is National Foot Health Month, National Frozen Food Month, and Peanut Butter Lovers’ Month. But when these announcements fail to stir the blood, they offer us such choices as National Crown Roast of Pork Day (to be celebrated on the 7th), or Maple Syrup Saturday (the 3rd Saturday of the month). In Hinckley, Ohio they have a Buzzard Day Festival. In Wiggam, Georgia, they can be found celebrating the Rattlesnake Roundup. And if none of these float your boat, you can celebrate Doctor’s Day (March 30).
