Vegan for $3.33 a Day
Dear Vegan at Heart,
This week your mission is to read the Vegan for $3.33 a Day blog and be inspired to do your own creative meal planning on a budget.
When you're a vegan and raw chef, you've lost your job, you have two teenage boys, you're living off of savings and unemployment, and you've got a food budget of $100/month, what do you do?
You plan the heck out of your meals, get creative, and post your discoveries on your blog, Melomeals: Vegan for $3.33 a Day.
I have just become the biggest fan of Melody Polakov from Portsmouth, New Hampshire, a chef/photographer who is in the process of losing 100 lbs, creating lower-calorie, healthy meals made from from whole foods and very little sugar.
This week your mission is to read her Tips and Sample Weekly Meals and be inspired to do your own creative think-ahead meal planning on a budget.
If you want to experience the full benefits of her skills, frugality and creativity, commit to using her meal plans for one week. Print out the Tips and Sample Weekly Meals, find the recipes for the dishes she lists in the Recipes section, and knock yourself out. You will be such a friggin rock star. Your wallet will love you, your body will love you, and your taste buds will be happy too.
I mean, just look at this beautiful Simple Lentil Salad. So easy, healthy and yummy!
Subscribe to her blog or follow her on Twitter to see updates on her forthcoming cookbook and Cross-Country Tour. I can't wait to meet her at the Vida Vegan Conference in Portland, OR this summer, where we'll be doing a sneak peak preview of Vegucated.
Hooray to creative, thrifty, and inspiring vegans!
My mom and I are amazed by this. We look forward to using some of this information.
