Be Food-Savvy And Spend Less
One of our staple food are oats! They usually come in cardboard packaging so are better for the environment too. They are cheap and so versatile! We love making our own granola, oat bars, oat milk and they can be used in many other recipes.
Beans, lentils and chickpeas are useful and open up so many different options! Soup, vegan burger patties, curry or vegan chilli…just to name a few.
Flour! I recommend getting plain flour if you want to make cakes, cookies or fancy making your own pasta or empanada dough. If you like making bread consider getting wholemeal flour or even spelt flour which is great for sourdough bread.
Your preferred type of oil. We love extra virgin olive oil for salads and baking but have a look around as you can usually just swap the type of oil used in most recipes.
