I’m tired of people mistaking the vegan diet to be something only the “elite” can do. Veganism is for EVERYONE and some of the cheapest foods on the planet are VEGAN by nature. Animal products have only become somewhat cheap because of extreme factory farming, government subsidisation and a whole load of other sketchy political reasons. Vegan food including rice, beans/legumes/lentils, potatoes, pasta, corn, etc. are some of the cheapest foods out there and you can do a LOT with these basics.

I took on a challenge to live on $3 or £2 per day for five days, and this was what I ate for day 1, and what I’ve purchased up to this point.I did this at the end of November – beginning of December.

Here are some of the “rules” and guidelines that I made for myself –
1. I can only spend £10 total in the five days of the challenge on food & drinks, with the exception of condiments and spices that I already had in the house.
2. I will attempt to make each meal different and not eat the same thing every day (so not really doing any bulk meal prepping or something like that which I would normally do!)
3. I will try to be as creative and healthy as possible!

What I purchased (so far) –

500g dry chick peas – £1.09
Asda smart price spaghetti 500g- £0.30
Potatoes 2.5kg – £1.69
