So as a lazy and now very poor, health conscious vegan, I have to do a great deal of strategic planning when it comes to my meals. To stay within budget I plan my weekly shopping trip - what I need from each store and roughly how much it should be. I do not deviate from the list.
The qualifications are as follows:
- my weekly budget is $30 or so (for just myself)
- the meals must be healthy: low in sodium and saturated fat, high in fiber and protein
- a daily meal plan should be around 1500 - 1600 (on days I do not exercise)
I have decided to share my weekly planning with the web at large, mostly due to the fact that this information is difficult to find and if I can save someone the hassle - all the better.
So here goes...
Caloric Total: Around 1,600
Breakfast: Cereal with almond milk, Banana
Morning Snack: Carrots (3))
