Plant Based for $10 or less a day!

One of the most common things that I hear people say when talking about switching to a Plant Based diet is that it is expensive. Well, that is just not true. The foods you should be eating most in a Plant Based diet just happen to be very affordable. Dry beans, oats, bananas, greens and onions are affordable even if they are organic in most stores.

This is a one day example of how to eat for less than $10 a day.

1/2 cup oats
1/2 banana
1/4 – 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1 1/2 tsp ground flax seed
1 cup unsweetened almond milk ( or plant based milk of your choice )

Stir together and enjoy!

Massaged Kale Salad

1/2 bunch kale
1/2 lemon
1/2 avocado
2 Tbsp Nutritional Yeast

Massage together and enjoy!

Beans and Greens

1/2 bunch kale
1 onion, chopped
1 can black or pinto beans

Sate onions in 3 Tbs water until soft. Add kale and cook down for 5-10 min. Add beans and stir. Top with hot sauce and maybe some jalapeños.

    I’ve been wondering a good way to dress kale salad without using oil. I love how you used avocado and just massaged it right into the kale like a dressing with the lemon and nutritional yeast. Cool idea!

    Thank you for your great $10 meal day post. Please please do more of this kind of post. Keeping plant based cooking simple helps those of us who are newer to this way of eating.
