Eating a meatless diet can be expensive, especially when making sure I’m still getting the protein and nutrients I need.With a little commitment and a few tweaks I can make it possible to stick to my diet, even on my budget.
Eliminate Junk Food
Junk food, like potato chips, can be vegan. That’s a problem because it’s also inexpensive, convenient or easy to make. When I eliminated even my shopping list it makes my healthier and vegan foods easier to afford. This doesn’t mean that I don’t get to have snacks. I just end up having healthier snacks. Instead of chips I have bagged salad and eat it like chips. I also eat unsalted nuts and raw vegetables.
A Change in Drinks
I drink more water than I used to. I use a filter pitcher so I am not always buying bottled water. I use herbal teas like mint or fruit flavors to enhance the taste of my water without adding calories, sugars, or diet drink chemicals to my beverage. Instead of using soy milk I use almond milk, which is a good source of calcium and protein.
Planning To Eat Out
When going out to eat I check online menus before I even get to the restaurant. This way I know what I’m getting, I know it’s in my price range and I know if it’s in accordance with my vegan diet. It also gives me time to change plans if the restaurant doesn’t have anything I can make a meal of.
