The new year is right around the corner, and with it comes a fresh opportunity to start new and kickstart the year with healthier eating habits. Many are resolving to try plant-based living for the first time for Veganuary while others are simply committing to eat more whole foods. Either way, we’re here to support you and show that plant-based eating is not only doable, but it doesn’t need to be expensive. In fact, eating a healthy whole-foods based diet can be one of the most affordable ways to eat!
Think about it: rice, beans, lentils, potatoes, bananas, carrots, kale—these are some of the most affordable foods out there. And when prepared well, flavored with nutrient-packed spices and cooked to perfection, they can be incredibly satisfying. Plus, when you fuel your body with healthy foods, you’ll feel better and prevent costly medical bills down the road!
That’s why we (Michelle and Toni) created one-week meal plans that show how to hack the supermarket so that you can get an entire week’s worth of food for a grocery bill as low as $25 (that’s just $1.20 per meal).
You can follow our meal plans any time you’d like, of course, for the New Year we’re hosting a special Plant-Based on a Budget Meal Plan Challenge starting on January 5th, to give you a designated opportunity to focus on healthful, home-cooked, budget-friendly vegan eating with support, community, and tools to succeed.
We’ll be by your side (virtually) throughout your vegan meal planning adventure, providing a lot of support through our Facebook group exclusive to our meal planning family. If you’re looking to build healthier habits in the new year, join us!
