Ready to introduce plant-based foods into your diet?
Start by enhancing your current diet by adding more fruits, vegetables, and grains to your routine. You can add a piece of fruit to your breakfast routine or find ways to add vegetables to your current meals.
Start a tradition on Mondays to have meals without meat.
Replace beef on Taco Tuesdays! Check out our yummy recipe on Budget JouRNey’s IG.
Use quinoa, bulger or other grain as base. Add veggies, tofu, or beans. Great to prepare the night before and take as lunch or dinner to work.
Use frozen bananas in a high-speed blender instead of buying expensive ice cream!
Season with balsamic and crushed garlic and top with standard burger toppings like lettuce, tomato, etc. I personally love to add avocado!
Use a sweet potato and black bean mixture instead of chicken or beef (check out
our recipe on IG!).
Freeze fresh fruit before it goes bad to preserve and use in fruit smoothies!
Substitute cow’s milk with Almond, Oat, Cashew, Coconut, and other alternatives.
Cook at Home
Eating out can be incredibly expensive! Leave restaurants for date nights and special occasions.
