Here’s How to Eat Vegan for a Week For Under $50

Some of the most affordable foods on the planet are vegan, including rice, beans, legumes, pasta, and all kinds of fruits and veggies. Despite this, people will often ask us about eating vegan on a budget.

So we’ve compiled some handy tips and tricks that will keep you veg without breaking the bank:

Dry beans are worth the wait.
Sure, you have to soak them overnight, but dry beans are exponentially cheaper than canned. They’re also a delicious, protein-packed essential in a budget-friendly vegan diet.

Buy it frozen.
One great way to save money is to reduce food waste. Frozen veggies like corn, peas, and green beans are great because they last almost forever.

Get into oatmeal.
Yeah, oatmeal is a super secret vegan hack. It’s filling, loaded with iron and calcium, and one of the cheapest things you could eat for breakfast.

Stick with produce under $2 per pound.
When choosing fresh fruits and veggies, try to stick with items under $2/lb.

If you want to splurge, buy some Vegenaise.
Of course you can just use it like mayo, but you can also create sour cream (just add lemon juice), salad dressings, and sauces with this must-have specialty item.

Soup is a thing.
Soups loaded with veggies, grains, and beans hold well as leftovers, stretch your dollars, and make great filling meals!

Stick with staples.
Rice, pasta, and peanut butter are all great choices for affordability and versatility.

Every night can be taco night.
Put those tasty veggies and beans to use inside a toasted tortilla! Add some Vegenaise sour cream and you’ve got yourself a tasty and inexpensive vegan dinner.

Hey you’re right my friend!
Not everybody has access to vegan foods, and in rare occasions you might find situations where vegan basics are more expensive (obviously plant based milks can be pricier and stuff like that).

However on the whole, veganism is cheaper my friend! As long as you stick to the basics!

When I say vegan foods, I don’t necessarily refer to mock meats and veggie burgers, what I’m referring to are standard whole foods, which are nutrient loaded, tons healthier, and tons cheaper too!

Things like beans, lentils, seeds, nuts, pasta, fruits, veggies, all that kind of thing!
The amount of meal combinations you can make with ingredient combinations of whole plant based foods is immense, and it’s all dirt cheap!

By doing this, what you also do is increase the popularity of plant based foods and make them more accessible to the general population and to people who normally aren’t able to live a lifestyle as healthy as that, you know?

In short, I know that not everybody can be vegan at this point, that’s fine, I get that.
The aim of the post was to say that anybody who can do so, should! And while you can’t, you should still take every step practically available to you to live as plant based as possible and reduce your harm as far as is available to you at this point✌️🌱
That’s the aim of what I was getting at

Height: 5'9
Before 17 years old maybe: 280 pounds,
Current 20 years old: 260-268 pounds

I’ve been questioning whether or not my work is making a difference because it’s been at least six months of consistency and I’ve only lost about 20 pounds. But then I look at pictures like this and really see the difference. So instead of
measuring pounds I’ve starting tracking inches, pictures and body fat percentages! My goal is a body fat percentage of 15-20%. Currently at 28%

What I did: determined how many calories my body actually needs, HEAVING LIFTING, at least 15 minutes of cardio 3-4 times a week, eating mostly fish, eggs, lentils, and beans for proteins, lots of fruits, veggies, and yummy salads. Quinoa, sweet potato and lentil pasta for carbs.

hi, so an app (yes i know, not the most reliable buuuut it) recommended me to have 91g of protein, 61g of fat and 228g of carbs - I put in my age and weight etc; 15, female. but last week on a day I had 364g of carbs (all wholegrains like oats; whole grain, seeded bread and wholewheat pasta) and fruit and veggies, 26g of fats (nuts, part of wholegrains) and 51g of protein. it made me feel really good but do you think it'll make me gain any weight or anything negative. it's a stupid question ik

To be honest, if You felt good with it, do it this way! Every body works completely different and an app won’t be able to tell you your perfect macros. If i calculate my calorie intake and macros and stuff online, they tell me to eat 1300 calories per day without sports. I actually eat 2500-3000 calories per day, without gaining a ton of weight. If i wouldn’t workout i might would gain weight but even on days when i have rest days i eat the same amount. Just try to find out what works and feels good for YOU! I promise, it will work :) xx

Just wondering, but when you take pictures of your food for instagram and/or tumblr, do you add more food to your plate or bowl after taking the picture? (so more fruit to your oatmeal or more potatoes or veggies or pasta to your plate) Whenever I try to take pictures of my food (that look as nice as yours haha) there's always too much of something on the plate to make it look pretty :p Have a nice evening!

Yeah, I do that all the time! More fruit on oats, more granola on nicecream, more potatoes to these ‘baked plates’ etc :)

my body finally made it impossible for me to keep treating it like a lazy lady ruled by stress. drinking green juices and lemon water and rosehip tea instead of coffee, eating veggie soups and fruits instead of cheesy pasta.
and this morning I made such a delicious breakfast I wanted to share: mixed chia seeds with hemp milk for ~20 minutes to make chia ‘pudding,’ then added a pinch of salt, cinnamon, vanilla, and maple syrup and mixed it up; topped it with pumpkin seeds, almonds, fresh banana, and more cinnamon. super super yum.

Another full day of eating from friday:

Breakfast (Pre workout): chocolate protein nicecream topped with granola, frozen raspberries and kiwi+grapes on the side
Lunch: (postworkout) 3 slices of bread  with yummy vegan toppings and a not pictured ugly protein shake
Snack: some nuts and dried fruit
Dinner: whole spelt pasta with veggies, tofu and more veggies
Dessert: two pieces of white vegan chocolate

If you have even 1% of you that has ever considered going vegan do it now for just one week.

Just commit to a week, if you hate it after that then go back to your normal life but just give it a try.

During this week educate yourself. Watch the documentaries Earthlings, Cowspiracy, and Forks over Knives. This is going to be so important. Read articles, watch videos, whatever works for you but educate yourself.

Try new recipie. Try things!! Try to cook, try veggies and fruits you have never had. Eat lots of pasta, bread, rice, beans, fruits, veggies, quinoa, potatoes (sweet and regular) Add different spices to things. If you hate something then never make it again, the next day go try something new.

If you have ever even considered going vegan please send me a message and lets talk about it! What is holding you back? how can you get past that? let me answer any questions or fears you have!

Honor (the mun) set the blanket out in the gazebo, spreading it across the floor before sitting to empty the contents of the picnic basket she’d made. She had fought Claude, telling him she wanted to make the meal herself; the man never trusted her to do anything.

“There!” she stood gazing down at the feast laid out on the blanket. Homemade chicken, roasted, pasta, veggies and fruit with a chocolate cake for dessert. “I hope he likes it,” she smiled as she waited for Wilfred to finish with his meetings for the day.

You vote with your dollar. Buy foods for the planet. Eat fruits and veggies. Rice. Potatoes. Pasta. PLANT FOODS. Don’t contribute to the horror and cruelty of animal agriculture. If you call yourself an environmentalist, it’s time to walk your talk, wake the f*ck up & go VEGAN!!
