To answer your question about cheap vegan food, are you talking about replacer products or specific kinds of foods? Because fake meats and things like that will always cost more than whole foods. As someone else who is always strapped for cash, I tend to stock up on the following: beans (black, kidney, chick, lima, pinto), peas, lentils, peanut butter, almond butter, nuts, seeds, broccoli, spinach, whole grain breads/pastas, oatmeal, and potatoes.
I was talking more about mock vegan meat products, not beans ect.
To many pulses actually give me cramps. I suffer from ibs, this was horrendous when I ate meat & to many pulses actually set me off. I use kidneys beans ect but I don't load up on them. I've put on 14kg of muscle in 4 & a half months so am doing something right.
Im not seeing any sweet potatoes in these diets on here? How come?
