Vegan Grocery Haul

22nd January 2017
Vegan Grocery Haul

We live in a tiny semi-rural village in the Lancashire countryside, this is perfect for long walks with the dogs but not so much for easy vegan pickings. The bus route past our house has been downgraded from two buses a day to two a week. We are not a thriving Metropolis of vegan friendly deli’s yet hopefully this weeks vegan grocery haul will show that if we can do it, out here in the sticks, anyone can.

If you read my vegan meal planning post then you’ll be familiar with the fact that I’m a tad obsessed with lists. We never shop without one and rarely go off plan unless we see a total bargain. Here is this weeks shopping list complete with prices. I hope it shows just how affordable vegan groceries can be when you stick to a plan.
