Ideas for Low-Carb, Budget-Friendly Meals That Satisfy?

Q: My boyfriend follows a pretty strict no-carb (or low-carb) diet, and he has a HUGE appetite. Without pasta or rice, it's proven difficult to stretch a dollar when I have to leave these "filler" ingredients behind. Any no- (or low-) carb recipes made with inexpensive ingredients that I can add to my repertoire? 

Primarily we eat a lot of meat, cheese, veggies, and many many eggs. And am I over looking a "filler" ingredient that is both no carb and inexpensive?
