Vegan Eatin' on a Budget!

Tips to help you save money and animals.

Whether you're a student, raising a family on a tight budget, or just trying to make ends meet, choosing to buy vegan foods doesn't mean you have to break the bank.  Sure, you can splurge on savory mock meats and non-dairy cheeses that are readily available in grocery stores everywhere, but there are plenty of fantastic, nutritious vegan options that are as economical as they are delicious.

Here are some meal ideals to help you discover how easy - and affordable - it is to transition to a more compassionate diet!

  • Oatmeal with fruit or maple syrup
  • Cereal with soy milk and sliced bananas
  • Peanut butter (and fruit spread) on toast or a bagel
  • Smoothie:  blend fresh or frozen banana chunks and soy milk
Lunch & Dinner
  • Rice, beans and vegetables on a platter or in corn tortillas
  • Pasta with tomato sauce and frozen veggies
  • Baked sweet potato topped with salsa, baked beans, or veggie chili
  • Celery, apples, or carrots topped with peanut butter
  • Popcorn seasoned with nutritional yeast or salt
  • Make-your-own trail mix with nuts, raisins, and sunflower seeds.
 Hi-dee hi-dee simple works-ho everyone!
