Vegan on Budget for 2

Friday, August 26
image from Inspired by Nick

A few months ago I made the decision of going Vegan. I never thought going Vegan was that difficult or it was too expensive, but I decided to make this post anyway to help others that wan't to go Vegan but have a strict budget to follow. I created a list that will feed me and my boyfriend for one week for under 30€. Veggies, fruit and pasta/rice are the most inexpensive produce on the planet, so it's very easy to get all you need for your meals for a nice price.

Bellow you will find the shopping list from Continente, a list of dishes you can make with those ingredients (and probably more) and a week menu so that you can see how I separate my daily meals. The recipes and meals are made in our own taste, of course you can always change a few things or make your own list. Meal planning all the way! 

Hope this post can help a few of you that are on a Vegan journey.

  5. You went vegan? This is excelente news!
    I go away for a few months and I discover such great news, I'm so happy!
    I'm also on my way to becoming a Vegan, have been dealing with some medical issues, but I realized that since I changed to a more vegan diet that my health has improved a lot. And I also noticed a great change in my attitudes towards all animals.
    This is such a great post, I could live very well with this week menu :)
