What We Eat

-Written by Steph

When we tell people we spend $230/month on food(or that we’re vegans), we constantly get asked “What do you eat?”. Well, from this day forward we can respond with a link to this post! A very detailed, categorized list of everything we stock, and meals pulled from our food journal that we keep once in awhile. You’ll notice the absence of fresh produce – every day or two we buy it fresh, so it’s not on our regular stock list. As vegans, we eat a TON of produce.

This is the complete inventory of our fridge/pantry a few days ago.  Most of these items we always have on hand (e.g. soy milk, most spices, rice, pasta, flour).  Some are not, like ice cream, and all three types of frozen berries (usually we only have one or two types), and all three types of cooking oil (usually we only have one type).

Below the long list of ingredients is a list of dishes that we eat regularly.
