Food Shopping

So there’s a common misconception that being Vegan means spending way more on food, but I usually manage to make a £50-60 shop last me and Sam around two weeks, which I think we can all agree isn’t expensive at all.

The key is to have a full store cupboard of essentials which only needs to be topped up every so often and the main shop will be the fresh stuff! If you’re starting from scratch it’ll take a while to build it but when it’s done you’ll have the essentials for any good meal, just buy a few little bits at a time.
