    Thank you for sharing your post at Fabulously Frugal Thursday. With some changes to our budget in 2014, I know I’ll need to revisit my food budget and where I get our food from.

    Another tip I would add is to get your produce in season and freeze or can it yourself. That way you can afford to buy organic and/or local without breaking the bank and the frozen strawberries taste wonderful in January (even if they are a bit soggy!)Thank you so much for participating in A Humble Bumble’s Healthy Tuesdays Blog Hop!

    I love reading what you have been making!! Thank you for linking up with us for MMM link up party this week! I am going to try some of these recipes you have linked here. I never thought of using more beans instead of tofu for the Thanksgiving meatless loaf ( I am not a fan of tofu but a I a huge fan of beans!!). I am going to be sharing this post today on Adventures in Mindful Livings FB page. I hope you will come by and link up some more posts with us. I usually open the link up on Sunday late afternoon.

    No doubt about it I buy organic over conventional unless I know it is local produce. Some very good ideas and points in this article and your menu sounds quite feasible. Thanks for sharing

    Whole Food Plant Based on a Budget Week Two is awesome! Your menu is making me so hungry! I absolutely have to make the African Inspired Sweet Potato and Black Bean Burger and the Red Chile Rice with Black Beans and Dried Tofu! I love the real world aspect of this post. Thank you for sharing this wonderfully helpful plan with us at the Healthy, Happy, Green & Natural Blog Hop. Have a Happy Holiday!

    Wow- I thought I was organized! Amazing 🙂 I’m a monthly food budgeter and planner and it is amazing what it does for my life! I know what you mean about organic vs. OTHER. I’ve been amazed to find that a lot of the organic foods like carrots, celery, romaine lettuce, etc are very close in price to non-organic. I too buy organic whenever I can, without breaking the bank 🙂 {I also garden which helps a ton!}-

    Thanks for all of the tips! Appreciated!
