“Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.”
― Michael Pollan, In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto

There are a lot of reasons to eat more plants, and a lot of misconceptions about what that means. What we’re trying to do at Plant Based on a Budget is to show how affordable, easy, and delicious eating a plant-based diet can be, how you don’t have to shop at specialty grocery stores or restock your pantry with all kinds of unfamiliar products and substitutes, and, most of all, how you don’t have to sacrifice time, taste, or money in the pursuit of healthier, tastier eating.

Though all of our recipes are plant-based, we’re not advocating a political agenda, and we’re not making a list of Things You Shouldn’t Eat. We’re just a bunch of people who love food and cooking, and want to share some of the recipes and tips we’ve learned along the way.

More than anything, we think that everyone should be able to cook delicious, healthy food without spending a fortune. That’s the goal of this site: plant-based, on a budget.
