Tips and Recipes for 

Cheap Healthy Vegetarian Meals

The purpose of this blog is to give you hints, tips and recipes that cut your grocery bill, provide you with good, cheap and nutritious meals and give you some information on the health benefits of what you are eating. It is aimed primarily at vegetarians who are cooking for one or two people but the advice is sound and the recipes can be adapted for four or more.

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
