Eating Vegan on a Budget?


Being Vegan, and Broke I know how difficult it is to find reasonably priced Vegan products.
However if you stick to simple foods you can eat a perfectly healthy Vegan Diet on a Budget!

Here are some examples of cheap healthy vegan foods...



Grains 
Rice, Pasta, Quinoa, Bulgar wheat, pearl barley, Noodles etc
Are all very cheap, and last a long time, so you can make many different meals from them.
Such as pasta dishes, rice & veggies, risotto's, stir fry's, salads and soups.

Legumes (Dried)
Beans, Chick peas, Lentils
Are full of protein, very tasty, perfect to add to rice, quinoa dishes, salads, Curry's soups etc.

Bananas 
Very cheap full of nutrients and potassium
perfect to eat as an on the go snack, and make smoothies.

Avocado's
Are usually well priced if you buy the ripen at home kind.
Which ripen up very quickly if you put them in a fruit bowl with Bananas, near direct sunlight.
Avocado's contain all the healthy fats you need, full of vitamins antioxidants and are great for your skin.
Add them to salads and sandwiches.

Frozen veggies 
Frozen veggies are very cheap, last a long time and still have a high nutrient content, you could even get some fresh veggies as a lot of fresh veggies are quite cheap such as broccoli, cauliflower, carrots and if you don't use them all you can cut them in to small pieces and freeze them yourself.
Great for adding to rice dishes, steam, or make a stir fry.

Potatoes
Are extremely cheap, and sweet potatoes too, you can make your own wedges, add them to salads, make a jacket potato and fill with hummus.

Peanut butter 
Peanut butter is usually very cheap, high in protein and so tasty, great to spread on toast, and make sandwiches.

Raw unsalted Nuts 

You can usually pick these up for a reasonable price, and they last long, great for snacking, adding to salads and stir fry's.

Porridge
Super cheap, very healthy, filling and yummy
The perfect breakfast, make with just water, or almond milk, add fruit or nuts, agave nectar or syrup.

Frozen fruit 
frozen fruit is still as good for you and counts to your five a day, perfect for smoothies!

Bread
Preferably wholemeal as this is higher in fibre, and better for you.
Its also very cheap and lasts a long time.

Squash & Potatoes

Squash is usually well priced, especially if its in season, I love butternut squash, its great to roast, and you can get quite a few meals out of it.
And of course Potatoes are very cheap and nutritious!

Apples, Oranges, grapes

These are usually the cheapest fruits to purchase there also yummy and full of vitamin c.

Salad
Salad can be expensive but if you pick the right ones, there actually very cheap, such as lettuce, spinach, cucumber, tomatoes, peppers, mushrooms, and you'll get quite a few servings.
