Plant Based for $10 or less a day!

YouTube video

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.

  1. 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!

  2. 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.

  3. I watched your youtube video today and it looks pretty easy. I am planning to start tomorrow and was trying to look for something simple enough to start. I do have one question. Is the oatmeal you eat in the morning cooked? It didn’t appear to be and I’ve never had just oats:) . not cooked.

    1. Sometimes I cook it but if I am eating it with fresh fruit I sometimes just use it like granola and sprinkle it on top uncooked.

  4. Going to the store now to get Kale and going to try it massaged with Lemon and Avocado. I just know I will love it. Thank you for the video!!
