I have a ton of boca burgers in the freezer and I’m going to start using them in a dish each week. I’m out of sausage, so I’m going to make some tempeh sausage crumbles from Vegan with a Vengeance and stick that in the freezer for this week and maybe next week too. i have to have some sausage every week! Maybe this weekend I’ll try to make my own vegan sausage from scratch.
I’m also packing lunches for both of us every weekday to save some money. And we’ll eat better than if we went out! This weekend I only bought tvp, tofu, a few red peppers, and splurged on some hot garlic pickles at the farmers market. Yum is all I have to say about that! Plus that’s me keeping to more of a budget – maybe it really will become second nature.
This week or next I’m going to stock up on some brown rice from Costco and with that and all the pasta I have in the pantry I should be set on carbs for the entire winter!
