I’ve been vegan for almost 5 years and people always ask me the best questions like, “How can you afford to eat plant-based?” to “Is being vegan healthy? Aren’t you lacking vitamins and minerals?” I totally understand why people ask these questions as there is so much confusion about what’s considered healthy or affordable.
Here’s what I use at home to help me save money on groceries:
- Plant-Based On A Budget Cookbook
- Meal prep containers
- Shop using Walmart Grocery Pickup (Walmart has the cheapest produce and vegan food)
- Ibotta is a cash back app that gives coupons/cash back on groceries. They often have Beyond Meat and other vegan meat, cheese, and plant-based items to save money on.
- I use a tofu press and cast iron to cook tofu – makes it nice and crispy.
- Vegan Meal Prep Cookbook
I like to use the same recipe a few times a week. This keeps things really simple, you can eat leftovers, and you don’t need to buy a bunch of different ingredients.
Here is a 7-day budget-friendly meal plan. Disclaimer: I am not a dietician nor nutritionist. These are recipes I enjoy on a regular basis created by amazing food bloggers. The point of today’s post is to introduce you to easy recipes to make at home to save money and time.
