Easy Tips for Eating Vegan on a Budget

Want to know one of the most common objections that I hear regarding eating a vegan diet? "It's too expensive!" I call BS on that. Yes, it can be expensive if you buy fancy-dancy packaged (aka processed) vegan foods, but it doesn't have to be expensive at all. Beans, legumes, and grains - some of my dietary staples - are not expensive. You can trust me on this. I work for a non-profit, so yes, I actually use the strategies below every week! Read on for a few easy ways to save on groceries and stay on budget eating a vegan diet.

No-Chicken Noodle Soup

On a cold fall or winter day, there's nothing better than soup to warm you up and keep the blues and cold bugs away. This recipe is based on  Homestyle Vegan's Chickpea Noodle Soup  recipe - with only minor modifications. I added cabbage because I had some I needed to use, and I left out the bay leaf because I didn't have any. The result was fantastic, and I expect it to be even better once it sits in the fridge for a day or two so the flavors have more time to meld! It's hearty, comforting, and oh so satisfying.
