Having only very recently gone vegan myself, I spent a lot of time before my first big shop checking out other peoples grocery hauls or shopping lists to try to figure out what kind of stuff I might want to buy that I’d actually use. My first big vegan shop managed to last for nine days, which is a LOT longer than how long my meat and dairy inclusive shops would usually last, not to mention I’m spending around £15-20 less than I usually would.
I don’t want to bore you for too long, but before we get into the post I just want to mention that these items are from Aldi and Asda, which I have found to be the cheapest for most fresh fruit and veg, and Asda is the only place I’ve found that sells certain things I wanted. Okay, now lets get into it properly!
As you can see, I got a pretty huge amount of food! Heres my shopping list, and I managed to get every single thing!
As you can see, its quite a lot of stuff, but since a fair amount of it is very cheap, it adds up to just under £35, and between me and my boyfriend I’m guessing it’ll last around 9-10 days. My boyfriend will also buy his own meat, milks, eggs etc. through that time, but since I have nothing to do with that and I don’t want to promote a meat eating lifestyle anymore I decided not to include that extra parts in the list.
I will also be sharing what meals I made across the course of the week or longer with ingredients from this shop, so keep an eye out for that!
