What I love about the vegan lifestyle is how incredibly flexible it is. That flexibility makes it wonderfully freeing. The options are endless! As long as they avoid animal suffering, that is 😉
Yet despite the amazing flexibility of a vegan lifestyle, it still gets a bad rap as being expensive, restrictive, and unsatisfying. I created these three simple yet delicious (and cheap!) vegan recipes to defy those negative expectations. Traditionally, eating plant-based was the norm in many parts of the world. Those who were wealthy could indulge in animal products, and those who were not found myriad ways to make delicious, healthy, and nourishing meals using just plants. Today the variety of vegan food we have access to is greater than ever. Eating this way is no longer for peasants, but has become a billion dollar industry.
If you want to save money and be a “cheap vegan” then all you have to do is get back to basics: fresh vegetables, whole grains, beans, fresh fruit, and spices are all you need to be healthy and eat well.
