How To Eat #Vegan On A Budget (Organic, Plant-Based, Gluten-Free, Soy-Free, Raw Living Foods)

I went out to the store this evening and came back home with quite the haul.

I was able to find lots of high-quality, nutrient-dense, vegan foods. All for a total of about $70. This will last me probably 4 days… so at less than $20/day this is pretty high quality stuff. Check out the video to see some of the products I bought (including NuttZo ButterMary’s Gone Crackers Jalapeno, Raw (Superfood) Trail Mix, and Go Raw Granola Bars):

This is a “low-bake” recipe. Make the batter then cook for 10 mins in a 320 degree (F) oven.

Cashews, walnuts, dates, flax seeds, coconut oil, almond butter, Himalayan salt, maple syrup. Blend in food processor until almost smooth. Add macadamia nuts, coconut flakes, cacao nibs and goji berries. Blend slightly to chop up these ingredients into batter.

After baking, let cool and keep in fridge.
