Tips and Recipes for
Cheap Healthy Vegetarian Meals

What makes me think I am qualified to be writing this blog? Well, I've been a vegetarian for over 30 years, have lived on my own for over 20 of those and - I'm a pensioner - so money needs to stretch as far as possible. I've learned to make the most of what I have, to be a savvy shopper when it comes to reducing the grocery bill and to make myself healthy meals too.
When you are on a budget I think it helps to be a vegetarian since red meats etc are a lot more expensive than veggies. It is not difficult to produce healthy veggie meals, it may take a little more thinking about and preparation but you very quickly get used to that. So even you meat eaters might think of adding a veggie meal a few times a week.
I should warn you I am not a fancy cook - I like my cooking to be easy and fast so if you are a gourmet - this might not be the best place for you. Quite often you will find 'no-messing' recipes here that you can throw together quickly with no apologies.
I hope you find something here that interests you and you will join me on the journey as the blog grows.
Cheers - Ann
