budget/healthy vegan grocery list & meal planning

so I do shopping for a house of 4, and one of the people I live with has type 2 diabetes. So I thought I’d share the types of things I get that are both healthy and cost effective.


  • Instant oatmeal (we buy sugar free brown sugar flavor, but you can also just buy a big tin of instant oatmeal and add stevia or sugar free maple syrup and cinnamon+allspice)
  • Bananas (good to add in oatmeal)
  • Cereal and a milk alternative (most cereals besides kellogs are vegan, try to find a cereal and milk that’s fortified with b12)
  • French toast (mash a banana with either 3/4c milk alternative or the juice from a can of chickpeas, then add a tsp vanilla, 1-2tsp cinnamon, and ¼ tsp allspice. dip bread in mixture on both sides and then fry in a pan with 1 tbsp butter/coconut oil/nonstick spray on high heat and fry till desired on both sides. makes about 6 slices and is super good topped with syrup!)
  • Tofu scramble with toast (to make tofu scramble add onion powder, garlic powder, salt, pepper, nutritional yeast and break up the tofu in a skillet with a fork and heat it up) goes great with a side of baked beans too


  • sweet potato and beans (microwave sweet potato 6-9 minutes depending on size, rinse beans and microwave for 1-2 minutes and then season both the beans and sweet potato however you like!)
  • chickpea salad sandwich (microwave 1/2c chickpeas for about 25 seconds, then mash them with a fork and add 1 tbsp hummus, garlic powder, onion powder, dill weed, parsley all to taste and 1-2tsp spicy brown mustard) tomato slices are a good addition
  • Veggie hummus wrap (buy cauliflower and broccoli by the head, it’s cheaper. Spread hummus on a tortilla. Chop up cauliflower, broccoli, and carrots(or veggies of choice) and assemble the wrap)


  • Burritos (microwave instant brown rice to instructions, then add hummus and salsa. microwave beans and season as desired. assemble burrito with rice, lettuce, beans, and guacamole(optional). It’s even better if you turn a skillet on high and grill the tortilla first and assemble the burrito in the skillet, then slide it onto a plate once it’s nice and browned on the outside and wrap it up! Takes maybe 2 minutes extra to do this but it’s so worth it)
  • Curried veggies with rice (I just microwave frozen veggies and then add them to whatever curry I’m making. Walmart carries a “golden curry” that comes in a shiny box and dissolves in water to make a thick curry sauce. But there are tons of other options for curry sauce out there!)
  • Soups like progresso (their tomato basil soup, garden vegetable, lentil soup are vegan just double check the labels!) Campbell’s condensed tomato soup is also vegan. It’s also really good to add some cooked rice to tomato soup!


  • Cauliflower/fresh veggies or rice cakes with hummus
  • Popcorn (tons of “buttery” microwave popcorns are vegan. But you can also buy a jar of popcorn kernels, paper bags, and add 1c of kernels with a tiny bit of olive oil to it and fold the top of the bag so it doesn’t open and microwave for 1-2 minutes or until kernels have mostly stopped popping, then add salt and/or nutritional yeast!)
  • Canned fruit or fresh fruit that’s in season/on sale
  • Apples or oranges (buy them by the bag)

I’m sure there’s things I’m missing and I know this list isn’t super extensive but this is what we’ve been keeping in the house recently for dietary reasons while also being concious of our low budget. I’ll add more if I think of anything but feel free to ask questions or add to this list!

Being poor while trying to eat healthy can be a challenge, but it isn’t necessarily impossible either.

Healthy vegan grocery list for beginners🌱

“No your cat cannot be fed a vegan diet.”

I’ve been vegan for 6 years, and my aunt has been vegan for 30 years. I am poor af and I know I am contributing to the unnatural slaughter of factory farmed animals,but I buy meat kibble for my cat. When I can afford it, maybe 3 or 4 times a year, I buy a small bag of the vegan formula. My cat loves it. She actually tore the bag open once and spilled it all over the floor. I was concerned as well, but 2 vets both said her bloodwork is 100% healthy and normal.

Here’s an example of a vegan looking at scientific fact, ignoring it in order to force their own morals and ethics onto a pet. This follows the age old vegan check list: 

  • your classic anthropomorphism. “My cat/dogs loves eating vegan! They beg for it!” 
  • taking their pets behaviour and signs of malnutrition (begging for food, eating eagerly, ripping into the pet food) as them “loving eating vegan food!”  
  • classic “My vet says it’s fine!” - This is often a straight out lie or twisted truth. They often don’t tell their vet they are feeding a pet a vegan diet or if they do, the vet reluctantly has to stop trying to convince them otherwise due to the stubborn ignorance of the vegan owner. Vets don’t want to keep pushing, incase the vegan owner takes their pet somewhere else (or just stop taking them to a vet altogether) which can result in health issues and death for the pet. 
  • No understanding what blood work tests for
  • also attack on pet foods and how they contain “no nutrition” and or just “left over bones! there’s no real meat! It’s just filled with filler meal!” (doesn’t know what offal is) before, in complete irony go on to talk about how much nutrition is in vegan pet food (despite the lack of tests and scientific evidence that says the exact opposite).  
  • using their own personal experience with their pet as “proof” vegan diets work for pets

This is really just textbook bad vegan pet owner. This is animal cruelty. If you can’t stand to care for a pet properly (this includes feeding them the correct diet) then you shouldn’t have that pet.

I honestly hope someone takes this animal away from @firephox 

Cheap Vegan Grocery List 

Since the Cheap Vegan Pantry article has been so popular, I am (by request) following up with a Cheap Vegan Grocery List. Here I’ll explain the different strategies I use and items I buy to stay healthy on a budget.

When you go to the grocery store, have in mind what percentage of what types of food you plan to buy. This should mirror your ideal plate of food. My goal is to eat mostly whole foods (foods that have not been processed), as many organic foods as I can afford to splurge on, and as little sugar and processed foods as possible. Besides obvious sugar like corn syrup, sugars also include white bread/pasta, anything made with white flour.

Once you have mentally prepared yourself for grocery shopping, you start from the bottom up. I shop at a few different sources to get what I need for the best bargain. Luckily, all of these places are walking distance to my house. But do what works best for you! If you’d rather only go to only one place, that might be more valuable than the $10-20 bucks you save a week going to multiple stores.

Start Literally Dirt-cheap
To start, check your garden. Whether you’re just planting some herbs or you have a whole veggie garden, there’s nothing better than home-grown food. As Ron Finley says, “Planting your own food is like printing your own money …plus you get strawberries.”

If you happen to get to a farmers market, check out their $1 rack. Often times they’ll have good deals of food they have too much of.

Figuratively Dirt Cheap
Next I go to the 99cent and up store—and I know what you’re thinking, we just went from the garden to the dollar store, but I’m broke people! …plus they’re really not all that bad. Especially here in Los Angeles! People tend to get sketched out by the dollar store but you just have to use common sense. If something looks a little suspect, don’t buy it. A lot of the food is even the same brand as what you’d get at a grocery store, just overstock.

At the 99c store I buy:

  • Romaine Lettuce
  • Any pre-cut, easy to prepare veggies that look good (ex. Shredded purple cabbage, carrots, etc.)
  • Salsa
  • Tortilla Chips
  • Canned beans (at my location they have a variety of organic beans for a buck!)
  • Corn Tortillas
  • Canned Tomato Sauce/Diced tomatoes
  • Random canned goods I might need
  • Soy Milk
  • Brown Rice
  • Oatmeal

If I needed anything else I couldn’t find at the dollar store my next stop is usually my local…

The Mexican Super Market!
In LA I go to JON’s in Chicago I went to Devon Market, but most cities have their own Mexican supermarkets where you can get produce for a little cheaper.

Here I buy:

  • Apples
  • Cucumbers
  • Bell Peppers
  • Any other produce I have a recipe in mind for
  • Frozen Veggies
  • Almond Milk
  • Cereal
  • Nuts
  • Baking Items
  • Whole grain pastas

 Lastly, if I’m feeling a little fancy, having a craving, or just can’t find it at those two places, I go to…

The Bougie spots: Trader Joes and Whole Foods

Where I get…

  • Tempeh
  • Tofu
  • Low sugarGranola (a lot of times granola has just as much sugar as cereal like frosted flakes or cocoa pebbles)
    Dr. Praegers veggie burgers (where their motto is making the ingredients recognizable)
  • Trader Joe’s Tomatillo and Roasted Yellow Chilli Salsa (because it’s BOMB)
  • Nutritional Yeast
  • Natural Peanut Butter
  • Natural Almond Butter
  • Ezikiel Bread

…any little things that I can afford to splurge on

Extra tips…

Always look for bargains. If there is a discount rack, start there, then move to the sections you would usually go to and keep looking for deals. If you’re afraid you can’t eat the 2 for 1 case of fruit, remember freezing. You can always save it for a smoothie or banana whip later! Same goes for canned goods and non-perishable foods. Sometimes buying in bulk can save you some cash in the long run. 

I thought vegan food was expensive…
A big misconception about being vegan, and why many think it’s so expensive to eat a plant-based diet, is because of the processed foods that are catered to vegan consumers. Foods like Tofurky, Boca Burgers, Amy’s frozen dinners, daiya, and other pre-made vegan “meats” and “cheeses” are simply more expensive than produce AND worse than that, they’re not as healthy! It’s easy to be a healthy cheap vegan, but start throwing in processed foods and sugars and you start to dive into expensive territory. So make the healthier and less expensive choice and eat your whole fruits and veggies!

10 Little Ways to Make a Difference Today

Sometimes the political situation seems overwhelming and we start to think, “What can I do as just one person?” It seems like we can’t fix anything, but here are 10 little ways to resist today.

  1. Call your senator or representative about an issue
  2. Buy a friend a cup of coffee
  3. Help someone carry something, hold open a door (you’d be surprised just how much the little things can make someone feel better)
  4. Eat a vegan meal to save the planet
  5. Unplug your appliances when you leave your house
  6. Rinse out your plastic before you recycle it
  7. Refuse a plastic straw at a restaurant (plastic straws choke marine animals)
  8. Say something nice to someone with alternate political views
  9. Share a fact about an important issue on Facebook (healthcare stats, for example)
  10.  Read the news (you become a better citizen by becoming informed)

there are vey few groups i am steadfast AGAINST and refuse to listen to regardless of circumstance here is a complete list

trump supporters

Vegan Grocery List: Top Staples


  • Tofu: Silken for smoothies and puddings; medium or firm for cooking.
  • Tempeh: Soybean-based meat substitute.
  • Seitan: Meat substitute made from wheat gluten; great texture, great protein.
  • Frozen vegetable burgers: Making your own is better, but these are convenient in a pinch.
  • Edamame: Fresh (frozen) soy beans are a great high-protein snack or side.
  • Beans: Dried and home-cooked are cheap and the healthiest.
  • Chickpeas: In addition to beans, because they're so versatile.
  • Seeds: Sesame, sunflower, poppy, pumpkin, chia … all high in protein and healthy fats.
  • Nuts: Because, protein.
  • Nut butter: Because, peanut butter!
  • Cashews: In addition to nuts, because they can be soaked and used in so many ways.
  • Lentils: Super cheap, versatile, easy to make, delicious, and nutritious.


  • Brown rice: Ditch the white for more nutritious brown.
  • Quinoa: One of the few plant-based perfect proteins.
  • Steel-cut oats: Good for breakfast.
  • Whole grain grits: Because they’re filling and delicious.
  • Whole-wheat couscous: More nutritious than regular.
  • Multigrain pasta: Whole-wheat or legume mixes offer more nutrients and don’t all taste like cardboard.
  • Sprouted bread and tortillas: Food for Life products are nutrient-rich and altogether lovely.
  • Amaranth: Super cheap and nutritious. 


  • Agar agar: Vegan substitute for gelatin.
  • Nutritional yeast: A must for B12 and very palatable; used like Parmesan cheese.
  • Miso paste: Excellent for adding umami to vegetables; great anchovy substitute.
  • Vegetable broth: Go for organic, and watch the sodium.
  • Tomato paste: Great (surprising) source of iron.
  • Dried mushrooms: Like porcini, to add a meaty component to soups and stews.
  • Sun-dried tomatoes: Fantastic for adding texture and flavor.
  • Capers: Great for adding a punch of flavor.


  • Ener-G Egg Replacer
  • Flax seeds: To make a viable egg substitute for baking.
  • Chia seeds: For nutritious puddings and egg substitute.
  • Vital wheat gluten: A great binder that also adds protein.
  • Coconut oil: Great for replacing butter in some recipes.
  • Vegetable shortening: Non-hydrogenated, like Spectrum.
  • Agave syrup: Instead of honey.
  • Maple syrup: Instead of honey.
  • Blackstrap molasses: A fantastic source of iron.
  • ¼ c Silken Tofu: Replaces 1 egg flavorlessly. 
  • 1 Mashed Banana: Replaces 1 egg, adds flavor and sweetens naturally.
  • 3 tbsp Peanut Butter: Replaces 1 egg. 
  • ¼ c Applesauce: Replaces 1 egg. 


  • Mayonnaise: Vegenaise tastes most like traditional mayo, Spectrum is a bit sweeter.
  • Bragg Liquid Aminos: Liquid protein concentrate, delicious soy-sauce taste.
  • Sriracha: Or other favorite hot sauces.
  • Tahini: Sesame paste can be used as a condiment or in preparing Middle Eastern recipes.
  • Kimchi: Great source of probiotics if you don’t like soy yogurt.
  • Sauerkraut: A surprising source of health benefits.
  • Seaweed: Adds fishy flavor to soups and cooking in general. Dulse is especially potent.
My Working Poor Vegan Grocery List

My fiancé and I are working class vegans, and have managed to survive on $200 a month split between the both of us on food. Yes, all vegan food. We prioritize, round up, and make lists! This list is set up to show what we spend on groceries every two weeks, so we’re talking $100 bucks. I’m also going to add in some stuff we don’t always have to buy every paycheck, so multiplying this list by two might go over $200. But things like olive oil, condiments, rice, canned food and stuff can last more much longer than two weeks.

*Prices are going to be according to Walmart/Publix/various health food stores in the Florida Brevard County area.

Fruits - $4

  • Because fruits can be so expensive, we prioritize and buy one type of fruit each trip (every two weeks. Most of the time, we get apples. We looove apples.
    • A 5 pound bag of apples normally costs $4.

Vegetables - $29

  • Vegetables are often priced per pound, and we make sure we get ONE POUND each. With tomatoes it’s a different story, but we make sure we get two tomatoes every trip. Potatoes are another story, and we cook a LOT with potatoes. They’re an easy staple to a meal, and jam packed with nutrients. We get a five pound bag of potatoes every trip.
    • Broccoli $2
    • Lettuce $2
    • Potatoes $4
    • Tomatoes $4
    • Green Beans $2
    • Avocados (bag of 5 normally cost) $4
    • Onions (one large) $1
    • Canned vegetables may not be the healthiest, but they’re less than a dollar per can and LAST. So we’re a little health conscious. If you like canned foods, there are peas, corn, green beans, spinach. I only liked canned corn, all my other veggies have to be either fresh or frozen. If you can handle other canned veggies, you could get away with spending $5-7 on canned vegetables.
    • Frozen veggies don’t last as long as canned, but they taste better to me and normally run about a dollar per pound bag. I get mixed veggies, peas, green beans, and broccoli. If you have access to a freezer, definitely consider these. You could spend about $5-7 on these, too.

Protein - $20

  • This is where a lot of people think they have to spend an arm and a leg. People think substitutes cost sooo much money. Well, they’re halfway right. Cut Morning Star out of your vision right now, because they have milk or eggs in almost every one of their products. Boca has vegan options, though, and so does Gardein (a favorite of mine).  
    • Boca Chik’n patties, we love these so we’ll get about 5-6 boxes a trip. At 3 dollars each, you’re looking at $15-18
    • On our tough weeks, we’ll just do the patties. But if we have an extra 10 or so bucks here, we’ll get some Gardein products. The sausage patties are a personal favorite of mine, I use them in vegan biscuits and gravy. But we love the chik’n strips, the turkey patties, and so many more. If we’re having a good paycheck, we’ll get two bags of gardein products, which puts us at $10
    • Canned beans – very important. Black beans, refried beans, navy beans, pinto beans, garbanzo beans. Canned beans run under a buck each, so every trip, we’llspend about $5

‘Dairy’ - $10

  • Almond milk is a favorite of ours, specifically Almond Breeze Vanilla. Best stuff ever.
    • 2 half gallons of Almond Breeze (sometimes Publix has a two for five deal.) $5-6
    • Earth Balance Vegan Butter (15 ounces) $5

Breads - $7

  • I’ll include brands so you know which one is vegan. Honestly, we don’t do a WHOLE LOT of bread, so this is going to be a lot less than it would be for someone who always ate their chik’n patties on buns or something.
    • Arnolds Potato Hamburger Buns $3
    • Sunbeam Roundtop Sandwich loaf $2
    • Mission  brand Tortillas $2

Condiments – $21 (even though this shouldn’t count towards the total of monthly groceries.)

  • Like I mentioned at the top, this part of the list is probably going to take me over the 200 a month, but we don’t need to buy more every two weeks. These normally last us about a month and a half each time. Also, we live with two other people, too. Condiments are normally bought by whomever notices we’re out.
    • Olive Oil. I am biiiig on olive oil. I use it in pretty much everything I cook. We get a 1.5 liter bottle and have to buy a new one every month and a half to two months. $10
    • Ketchup we buy in bulk. We’ll get a 7 pound tub of it, and have to buy more it seems every so often. $6
    • Spices you can get the cheapest possible. 5th Season brand normally runs just under a dollar per container. If you’re like me, you love seasonings. $5
    • There are a lot of other really awesome things out there as far as condiments go. They have Vegenaise, vegan salad dressings, mustard, and all sorts of other kinds of these. I’m not going to put that on this list, because we don’t buy those all the time. Sometimes we’re too poor to afford them.

Other - $38

  • As far as everything else goes;
    • Peanut butter $5
    • Spaghetti noodles (15 ounce bag for just under a dollar each, I don’t remember the brand) $2
    • Preggo Traditional Pasta sauce $5
    • White Rice 5 pounds (only have to buy every 3-4 months)$3
    • Brown Rice 5 pounds (only have to buy every 3-4 months) $3
    • Cereal. We eat a lot of cereal. We get various types, Kashi, Mom’s Best, Cascadian Farms, as well as Life, Rice Krispies, and so on. We set aside $20
    • Snacks and treats are at your leisure. If you’ve budgeted right and see that you have a little extra money, go for it.

A lot of my extra money does go to food. I love to cook. If I want to make a special meal and I see I have an extra 10 bucks in my wallet, I’ll but some Tofurky tempeh bacon or more fruits, or different kinds of vegetables, or something. But bare minimum, after you take out the stuff we only buy every couple of months or so, we only spend about $200 a month on groceries. This is enough food for two happy vegans.

I hope this helped some of the people who are monetarily nervous about veganism! If enough people like this, I might start sharing some recipes for meals I make with this very grocery list!

i cant think of anything better than this it’s so ridiculous and i love it

anonymous asked:

Hi, I was just wondering if you had any vegan food recommendations in London?

London is a big city so obviously there are tonnes of vegan-friendly places to eat. Here are some popular ones and my favourites: 

  • birdie’s – best soy latte in the city + good vegan breakfasts
  • club mexicana – tacos, burritos, deep fried cheeze 🌯
  • franco manca – sourdough pizza, get #1 and lots of garlic oil!
  • the full nelson – american-style good stuff
  • itadaki zen – vegan sushi is my favourite food! 🍣🍙 
  • mildred’s – simple, reasonably priced but still delicious, wide range of foods, big portions
  • manna – something different
  • v burger – seitan / falafel / quinoa burgers 🍔

I also recommend @katelouisepowell‘s list of vegan-friendly chains, and remember that really fancy places should be able to cater to vegans, just ring ahead. I heave eaten at sketch and claridge’s and they can both do vegan food if you let them know, so always give it a try! 

  • 1: There's a reason why kids have no school trips to slaughterhouses.
  • 2: There's a reason why in America the meat industry wants to work in a total secrecy (the Ag gag law)
  • 3: There is a reason why when you see an animal you want to have a contact with it (stroke or a hug, etc.)
  • 4: There's a reason why we hate animal abusers
  • 5: There's a reason why we treat pets as family members
  • 6: There's a reason why kids so desperatly want to be around animals
  • 7: There's a reason why we are physilogically/physically unable to compete with predators for a prey
  • 8: There's a reason why we pay somebody else to kill an animal for us (it's too hard for us)
  • 9: There's a reason why cry when our pets die
  • 10: There's a reason why have compassion for animals
  • 11: .......
  • Just because it's whats done, doesn't mean it's what should be done. Open your heart for compassion regardless of the animal.
  • Please continue the compassion list and reblog it with your own reasons why.
Vegan/Plant based shopping master list.

I’ve smashed together this list of grocery items you could use when compiling your vegan grocery lists. Copy it to a document, add your own items to it, maybe print it out, and bust it out when planning your trips. 

protip: sticking to grocery lists is a good way of staying within budget.
