Sugar Coated Vegan is sweet filled food blog featuring vegan desserts and the occasional savory and gluten free dishes. It's the birth of a new years eve resolution to take my love of food and baking and share it with others. I hope you try out the recipes and enjoy them as much as I have and don't hesitate to request your favorite sweets!
Eat vegetables and fruits that are in season (they’ll be cheaper)
Buy from your local farmer’s market (again, cheaper!)
Buy in bulk (grains, legumes, pasta etc.)
Be creative (sometimes you can make something amazing out of nothing. I’ve done this way too many times to count.)
Stop buying unnecessary junk food (and make it yourself! Things like chips, crackers, granola bars, etc. It’ll be healthier as well!)
Take a break from processed meat alternatives and stick to whole foods.
Stop eating out! (this is a given for any person on a budget)
Make your own veggie burgers!
Cook in bulk
Make your own vegetable broth (this will save you so much money plus it will taste WAY better than the store bought ones.)
Buy frozen vegetables and fruits (not as good as fresh but still nutritious!)
Try making big one pot meals (soups, stews etc.)
Stop buying canned legumes! (they’re way cheaper dried!)
Check Amazon (they have good deals on bulk items and spices.)
Start your own garden (even a tiny one can makes things cheaper.)
Make your own non-dairy milk (all you need is a blender! Thanks, bloodandcrust for the tip!)
I’m sure I’m not the only one who has been asked this questions TONS of times so I put together a quick little list about things that I do to eat vegan on a budget. If you have any tips or tricks, message me and I’ll add them to the list! I’ll post a link to this post on my sidebar for easy access along with the VEGAN 101 post.
