In honor of Meatless Monday, today we’re highlighting one of the cheaper ways to eat: eating vegetarian! If you’ve ever wanted to try vegetarian food but assumed it was boring or bland, think again! Not only can eating vegetarian really save you money, but it’s a fun way to switch up your dinner meals if you primarily eat meat.
As a vegetarian, I can personally attest vegetarian food is delicious, filling and, yes, cheap! As long as you buy natural ingredients and not artificial ingredients frequently, you can save money and eat well.
Do you eat vegetarian meals, and if so, which recipes are your favorite?
