59 thoughts on “MEAL PREP FOR THE WEEK FOR $20 (VEGAN + EASY)

  1. Good effort.. but the food is mostly bland and grainy.. you need to eat more spices, onions, ginger, garlic.. try to make indian style flat bread with wheat flour or cornflour.

  2. It would have been really nice to know how much everything was individually? You mentioned a couple of prices for the reduced items but not anything else. I would be interested in the oatmeal cost since instant packets tend to be far more expensive than loose. I can get a kilo of oats in the UK for 75p. This will last me a month or more depending.

    I do think this was a good effort so please don’t think I am being super critical. I am just about to upload my first video on how to eat healthily on a budget so this is currently on my mind. A couple of ways that you could have gotten more for your money . . . . buy loose rolled oats instead of instant. Buy dry beans and chickpeas instead of canned and you will have enough for several weeks after. Buy frozen broccoli instead and you would have gotten around 4 or 5 times the amount for about the same price.

    I hope this helps? Over the next couple of weeks I am going to be uploading several videos on this subject so if anyone needs help in this area please feel free to watch and message me. Food poverty is a real issue. people in developed countries are dying of hunger – it’s insane!! This is my way of doing my bit to help and raise awareness.

  3. i love how you transform one meal into another, i’m always bored of the same meals Every day so you inspired me a lot.thank you and go on😍

  4. i love some of your ideas but i gather you mainly eat vegan just because of the cruelty factor? microwaving destroys you foods nutritional value. and yo eat glysophate city unless the oatmeal is organic. major carcinogen there and the microwave. just a heads up on this.

    1. +Alpha_Panda 888 but if you besides look further in your own scientific american tht states clearly tht long heating times proteins and carbs become hydrolysed. vitamins will be destroyed. on and on it goes. i said tht short times are not the problem it is long times. anything over 45 sec. in my opinion is long. for 1 min. causes food to burn u.

    2. +Alpha_Panda 888 you quote american based science? haha bought and paid for. the world health organization i am sure has all the so called science you spout and have labeled glysophate as a carcinogenic. monsanto distorts and suppresses your science. if it were not based in science then why has the whole of europe banned gmos. and microwaves do rupture the molecules in your food. microwaves are radiation. they are so powerful they can disrupt a pacemaker. do not come to me with anything based in american science. anything in this country is set up to promote corporate profit. the argument monsanto used in california was tht the world health organization was not based on american science but french. well the french are a lot heathier than americans and eat a lot more fat. one in two men will get cancer. one in three women. those are facts. facts tht are coming from somewhere. oh yes the cancer association. food is health, health is food. i know i am talking to an ignoranmus so i am outta here. keep doing wht you do. you body is probably so mutated anyway to eat green would kill you.

    3. sharon anderson Your microwave claim doesn’t hold any water.

      How toxic is glyphosate exactly? To examine toxicity, one must look at a chemical’s LD50 value–a standard measure of acute toxicity for chemicals, expressed in the amount of chemical (milligrams) per body weight (kg) that it took to kill fifty percent of a population of test animals. Caffeine is over ten times more toxic than glyphosate. With LD50 of 192 mg/kg, it would take 12,192 mg of caffeine to kill an average 140 lb human being. A typical 8 oz cup of coffee only contains 95 mg of caffeine, much lower than the dose required for acute toxicity. The same reasoning applies to glyphosate. Using similar calculations, it would take 12.5 oz of glyphosate to kill an average 140 lb human being. That means drinking three gallons of Roundup Original. Using scientific measures, glyphosate is less toxic than baking soda and salt.

      But what about long-term exposure to glyphosate? Given its widespread use, there is a good chance that we are eating residues in our food. The EPA considered this in setting maximum safe levels of residues, called tolerances. EPA conducted a dietary risk assessment for glyphosate based on a worst-case risk scenario, that is, assuming that 100 percent of all possible acreage were treated, and that tolerance-level residues remained in/on all treated commodities. The agency concluded that there is no evidence of chronic dietary risk posed by glyphosate food use. A multi-university research project funded by the US Department of Agriculture concluded that glyphosate, if accidentally consumed, undergoes little metabolism, does not accumulate and is excreted mostly unchanged in feces and urine.

    4. +Chaz Steadyfist you do not know wht i do nor not do. and no she is not. i have practically no trash. tht macdonald’s was more than i produce in a month. so you can just go back to your corner. i was only asking a question not judging.

  5. I love your channel!! You’re so down to earth, fun, and easy going. I’ve finally found the “lazy” vegan cooking channel I’ve been looking for….Some vegans put sooo much time and energy into their meals and I ain’t got time for that haha

  6. I didn’t see a single organic ingredient. conventional apples are among the most toxic and conventional corn (except popcorn) is guaranteed Monsanto.

  7. i’ve been binge watching vegan meal prep videos because i really need to get in the habit of prepping all my meals. yours are amazing and everything here looks so good.

  8. All good ideas, the only thing I would suggest is adding tomato puree to thicken the sauce as well as maybe some garlic and paprika and pepper, it just adds so much more flavour to the sauce. Also roasted broccoli is one of the best things in the world, and is amazing hot or cold!

    1. When you’re on a tight budget, you have to make sacrifices. You can’t eat all organic, non-gmo, hormone free, gluten free, unprocessed food three meals a day for seven days for $20.

  9. New sub. I love you and everything about you. You radiates love and good vibes❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️. Not to mention the best cooking tutorial. You go girl.

  10. Your red hair is bomb!!! The best post ever. Love your style of prepping. You are the queen of meal prep ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ that’s it hands down to you doll.

    1. yes I need to I I’d this as well… I feel like the taco one can be frozen for sure. I’m a little sketched about freezing my noodles though… idk??? lol

  11. By the way, I am beginning a Vegan life-style, the previous posted comment of mine about Soy, was left for people to consider only…

  12. Very nice indeed. Wonderful. I have written everything down. Canned tomatoes is a no no. When is your book coming out? Just a thought. Thank you. keep it coming. Greetings from the UK.

  13. Great ideas, a bit of tomato puree and pepper I think would improve taste! Totally understand its a budget!

  14. I made everything on here!!! thanks for the video. it took me longer, but not too long. the best is the taco one mmmm 💝

  15. Finally a video for vegetarians that has cheap food items, most videos I have previously watched have been with way too pricey products. Thank you!

  16. This is the first time I’ve watched u and I loved this because it is so practical and most people don’t have a lot of time or money so yes great job

  17. Wow that spinach and broccoli in the $1 section was such a steal!! 🙂 I have started hunting around that $1 section too for awesome veggies – I myself found green peppers and other veggies too!
