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…
