Money Saving Tip #2
Cut down on meat analogue use. Don't get me wrong, I love a good veggie burger! I also love using meat substitutes in many dishes, but they are not cost effective. I think their existence is the one reason people believe vegetarian cooking is expensive. Veggie burgers and meat replacement products cost anywhere from $2.50-$5 per meal. In stark contrast, beans cost approximately $.50 per meal. Aside from the soy debate, or the processed food debate, the price difference is reason enough to consume more beans and less meat substitutes.
