23 Crazy Cheap Vegan Meal Ideas For Saving Money

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?

Did you know you could have IBS & not even be aware of it? A few months ago I was getting really bogged down because I didn’t know why I was experiencing major bloating & stomach pain. So I decided to call my doctors and explain my symptoms of what I thought could be IBS. To cut a long story short, they were fucking useless & couldn’t have pushed me out the door any faster. My doctor didn’t advice me on anything to change diet wise & she didn’t explain what causes IBS or how I can prevent it. But they were happy enough to give me a prescription “to ease the cramping pain”. I’m really fussy about what I put…
