I asked you guys on Twitter what topic you wanted me to cover this week & the most popular answer was what food I buy in my weekly shopping. I have never actually done a post about this before so I hope it is of value to you- as I know a lot of you are interested in the vegan lifestyle, but are unsure about how expensive it is or don’t know the alternatives that are available out there. I hope this will help you out!

As I live out in the countryside getting to a food store is rare, we usually order online & bag-less (the shopping comes in crates which we unload on to the bench to sort out.) Now since transitioning to veganism, I absolutely love food shopping, definitely something I never thought I would say but I have grown to love food and even creating my own recipes. So enough about me onto the real reason you are here.. FOOD.

Fruit & Vegetables

fruit & veg

This is just some of the fruit and veggies I would buy.. sometimes I would buy strawberries and blueberries etc. (but I already had them in the fridge)

Just some of the greens I would buy; sometimes I will get Kale.

12 Bananas – £1.60 (14p each)
3 Grapefruits – £1.50 (50p each)
1 Pineapple – £1.50
8 Onions – £1.58 (22p each)
3 Red Onions – £0.72 (12p each)
2 Bell Peppers – £1.00 (50p each)
1 packet of Chillies – £0.55

Cauliflower – £2.00
Savoy Cabbage – £0.69
Broccoli – £0.45
Spinach – £0.70

Dried Foods, Tins and Sweet foods

I would usually buy beans, peas and chickpeas (had them already in the cupboard) on a weekly basis. The quinoa, gravy and spaghetti are usually bought on a monthly basis.

Quinoa – £1.50
Baked Beans – £0.75 (25p each)
Bisto Gravy – £1.25
Garden Peas – £0.41 (41p each)
Spaghetti – £0.20
Chocolate Buttons – £0.37
Tofu – £1.25
2 Oreo thins – £2.16 (£1.08 each)

Dairy Alternatives (Mylk & Yoghurt)

I bought these from my local store that was closing down that is why these cartoons are 37p

Soy Mylk – £1.40 (but I got 4 for £1.48)

This is almost bought every week- it is so yummy!

Vanilla Soy Yoghurt – £1.50

Alpro Soy Chocolate Mylk – £1.20

Total – £24.36

This is a rough idea as too what I would buy weekly; of course there are some things that I wouldn’t buy every week such as the spaghetti and gravy,  I do buy a lot more fruits and veggies (at the time of this shop I had still quite a lot remaining in the fridge, for instance strawberries, leeks, lettuce, mangoes and passion fruit etc.) I hope you have found it useful in a way or simply just have enjoyed reading this post.

Until Next Time..

    Hey,

    This was a really nice read as I’ve been thinking about being more Vegan in the future when I move out for Uni. This is also rather cheap for a week! WOW. Would you ever share any vegan recipes in the future? Thanks and lovely post.

      Hey! I’m so glad you like this post. Veganism is cheap so will be perfect for student living hehe. Yes of course I do have a recipes section on my blog- you can see those from the categories dropdown list.

    This is such a good and helpful post! I love it when you post things that I didn’t think were vegan! E.g. Party rings and Oreo thins??

    It’s great to see that it’s not as expensive as everyone believes it to be!

    Love Saffron x
