Vegan On the Cheap

When times are tough and you don’t have time to pound the rice from the chaff and extract the soy milk from the bean…When you’ve stretched your dollar so far that you’re afraid it will bounce back and slap you in the face…

It seems like people feel deprived by the idea of having to cut back before they even do.  That’s why I think it’s important to keep those money saving weeks full of delicious, cheap as hell, sustenance.
