5 Top Tips for A Low Budget Gluten-Free Diet

  • Read the food labels: As vegans, many of us do this anyway. But it's doubly important with gluten intolerance. Look out for wheat, rye, barley, and triticale. This will save you from wasting money on products you can't eat (or drink).
  • Accidentally vegan is cheaper: While there are plenty of gluten-free alternatives available these days (yay), they often come with a hefty price tag. Instead, turning to accidentally gluten-free products (like chickpea pasta) are most cost-efficient.
  • Stock up on cheap pantry staples: It's incredibly simple to pull together tons of vegan, gluten-free meals when you have the basics to hand. I.e., Rice, quinoa, other grains, gluten-free pasta, etc., as well as beans and other pantry staples.
  • Turn to naturally gluten-free foods: If you want to keep your grocery bills low, stick to naturally gluten-free fruits, veggies, and grains (quinoa, polenta, buckwheat, corn, amaranth, millet, etc.).
  • DIY it: Sometimes, making your own versions of ingredients is more cost-efficient than buying them. For example, gluten-free flours made from pantry ingredients (oats, lentils, chickpeas, etc.).

Is vegan gluten-free?

Not necessarily, as the two aren't technically related. Veganism eliminates all animal products from the diet. In comparison, those with celiac and on a gluten-free diet are eliminating any ingredient with gluten (including any form of wheat, rye, barley, and triticale). So to create gluten-free, vegan recipes, you'd need to eliminate both.

Vegan Gluten-Free Breakfasts

With options including wheat cereals, toast, and pancakes/waffles, breakfast is a meal that is easily and often loaded with plenty of gluten. However, there are many ways to enjoy a filling and nutritious vegan gluten-free breakfast packed with flavor and nutrients to start the day off with a bang.
