    Re: Poor vegan, cheap living

    I think you have misread some things in your haste to judge me. I promise not to judge you, no matter what you post. It is not my reason for being here.

    Blessings to you as you walk your path.

    Re: Poor vegan, cheap living

    FaerieSuzy-I agree about not paying for the meat, and that is why the older kids have to take part in the food budget. They eat more expensive things, and more drive thru, than I do. Therefore, they...

    Re: Poor vegan, cheap living

    [QUOTE=Glory;694109]Amethyst, not to pry or anything, but if you are the one doing the shopping and the cooking then they should be eating like you. I mean, your 13-year old for sure should be eating...

    Re: Poor vegan, cheap living

    Yeah, Pthalo. I am in awe of it, too. Or disgust, actually. If I am spending $120-150 per month, and I think those are high numbers + it includes the paper products, health and beauty, cleaners,...

    Re: Poor vegan, cheap living

    Oh come on, Pthalo. Gimme more than that.

    Wow, because of my personal $150 a month? Wow, because of my meat-eating offspring and mate's remainder of the approx $1000 a month. (I cringe just to...

    Re: Poor vegan, cheap living

    Ananas, I have been vegan since spring of this year, so I am still a work in progress on budgeting and meal planning. I was vegetarian for 6+ years, so I have the general idea down. Just had to do...

    Re: Poor vegan, cheap living

    Glory, I was going to suggest the freezer, too. I chop up my vegg that is getting near time to either eat it or throw it out. If I keep it in a bag chopped up for stir fry, it makes things sooo...

    Ananas, LUV LUV LUV your icon! LOL

    Most of the micro popcorn here has butter in it. If it doesn't, it seems to have other animal products or derivitives in it that I did not expect. I haven't...

    I make it two ways....

    1. Put 1/2 cup popcorn in a clean, brown paper bag (like a lunch bag), fold the top over a couple of times to hold in the steam and popcorn, and sit it in the center of the...

    Re: Poor vegan, cheap living

    Thanks missbettie. I am sure everyone eats differently, but I was wondering if most vegans stress the veg/fruit part of the menu, or mostly eat grains and beans. I tend to eat more whole grains and...
