Pigs in blankets? It's veggies under vests for me this year.
For the last
two months I've gone vegan and am currently living more of a plant based
lifestyle. Some things have been easy for me (I haven't craved meat yet). Some, not so easy. (I miss eggs. I need an egg in my life!)
went cold turkey – literally, I am not doing that bad really.
pressure is on for me this year. I'm hosting Christmas dinner so I have to
cater for two vegans and the remaining meat eaters! Aside from the meat, I am
going to make everything else vegan.
I renamed my
Christmas jar to “Meat and two veg-ans" and started to stash the cash. I've put
£30 aside each week away for the last couple of months and by the time the
Christmas shop comes around I think I will have just over £300. WHOOP!
thought trying to do everything vegan would be more expensive. I couldn't be
more wrong and it's surprised me how much cheaper meals can actually be with
the right planning. I've started to tot up my shopping list and I should also
have a bit left over which I'll spend on the Christmas drinks and games for
Clause" jar also served me well – I didn't have to stress about how much I'm
going to spend on gifts this year. I've set a budget, popped money aside and
now it's there waiting to be spent! Pingit has been an amazing budgeting tool
for me and got me into some great habits.
believe it. For once everything is under control. Until the cooking starts…
