NMA Radio: How to Save Money While Eating Healthy and Vegan

Lettuce

It’s no secret that local, organic, healthy food can get expensive. Add in all the fake meats and fancy spices or oils, and suddenly the choice to eat plant-based becomes the choice to spend more than ever on groceries.

But it doesn’t have to be this way. Even if you insist on shopping at the hippest of grocery stores, you can find ways to save money — without sacrificing your family’s health.

In today’s episode, we discuss our strategies for saving money on food, which foods are worth it no matter how much they cost, and which foods we avoid because of their hefty price tags.

Here’s what we talk about in this episode:

  • Simple meals to save money without cutting corners
  • Farmers market strategies to save you money
  • Cheap but nutrient-rich foods
  • Matt’s grocery store struggles
  • Should you avoid tempeh and tofu?

    Thank you for showing how to follow a healthy and vegan diet without spending a fortune. Still, I have one point I would like everyone here to consider. You say that it is not necessary to buy organic vegetables because conventionally grown greens are almost as healthy. This is certainly true and a good suggestion for those, who have to make ends meet on a low budget. But for all others, healthiness should not be the only argument. Organic food contributes to a clean environment. It makes work less harmfull for farmworkers and and animals living in and around fields. So: If you can afford it, better buy organic.
