Vegan AND Budget-Friendly?

For some reason, certain people (ahem, meat-eaters) seem to think that eating a plant-based diet is expensive. Sure, sometimes certain vegan places like to hike up the prices of a dish just by saying it's "organic and vegan."

In reality, eating vegan should not be expensive. Forget that $4 matcha latte or $15 grain bowl. These dinners are all budget-friendly, last well in the fridge, and will fuel your body. All hail home cooking!
