#46 Where Dem Dollas At? | How to Save Money on Your Vegan Grocery Bill

In this episode, I share tips on how to save money as a vegan.

 

Listen here....

Tips mentioned:

  • Shop at your regular grocery store for essentials like spinach, potatoes, etc. and only shop health food stores for harder to find items like nutritional yeast, meat alternatives, etc. 
  • Get your butt in the kitchen and cook
  • Plan for leftovers -- I usually plan 4-5 dinners each week then stretch those out to save money and time
  • Just because you're eating vegan, it doesn't mean everything has to be organic --- buy what you can afford. Check out the Environmental Working Group's list of produce that are sprayed the most. 
  • Keep it simple. There's no need to be a gourmet chef every night. Simple meals like tacos, spaghetti, and stew are simple and filling. Save the elaborate meals for the weekend.
  • Plan your meals

#44 You Don't Have to Ditch ALL Dairy RIGHT NOW -- Here's Where to Start

Listen here...

 

One of the most common question I get is, "how to get rid of dairy and/or eggs?"

The good news is, you don't have to eliminate all of your dairy products overnight.

You can begin by just replacing your cow's milk and butter with plant-based milk (almond, coconut, cashew, etc.) and vegan margarine (Earth Balance & Smart Balance are popular brands).

 

4 Reasons You Don't Need Dairy:

 

How to use plant-based dairy and vegan margarine:

  • Plant-based milk (almond, coconut, cashew, soymilk, rice, etc) can be used in cereal, oatmeal, cooking, smoothies, etc.
  • Vegan margarine can be used on toast, cooking, grilled cheese sandwiches, etc.

 

Where can I buy these products? You can buy plant-based milk in most grocery stores these days. Check out Earth Balance and Smart Balance websites to locate these products near you.

Remember, it doesn't have to be all or nothing to get started! Make gradual shifts and keep on moving forward.
