Regardless of whether you’re vegan or not, you’ve definitely heard other people say before that “eating healthy is expensive”. And veganism is commonly known for being expensive, but that’s just not the case.

I’m a frugal gal who loves cooking and eating, but you won’t catch me spending a ton of money on my shopping bill every week. Why? Because vegetables, leafy greens, legumes (beans, lentils, peas), rice, tofu, potatoes, bread & most fruit are cheap as f**k and that’s what I eat every day.

I like to try & keep my meals as plant-based as possible because its cheaper, but I do treat myself to the odd meat-substitute, and even then, spending £1.50 for 8 meat-free burgers isn’t going to make a massive difference to my total.

Being a vegan on a budget is possible if you know what ingredients to use and what meals to cook. With these cheap vegan recipes you can start thriving as a vegan without spending a fortune!
