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.

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..
