The healthiest vegan foods are actually extremely affordable everywhere in the world. Basing meals around grains, legumes, vegetables, fruits and a little nuts and seeds, will allow you to stay within budget while meeting all of your body's nutritional needs.
An example for an affordable meal plan will be to make a breakfast from fruits or a big fruit smoothie, or to go for oats with some fruits and seeds. Maybe some avocado or jam toasts.
Continuing with 2 main meals that consist of (preferably whole) grains (such as rice, bread or pasta) or starchy vegetables (such as potatoes, corn, sweet potatoes) + legumes/tofu (such as lentils, chickpeas, beans) +vegetables.
It can be highly beneficial for one's health to incorporate some green leaves such as kale, collard or even lettuce, so don't be shy about having salads as a meal or on the side. By adding legumes or grains to a salad with lots of leaves and vegetables, you will be able to make a salad that will keep you fulfilled for some good hours.
Possible snacks can be fruits and some nuts or even some home-made cookies or a simple cake. By baking at home, you will be able to have your cake and not spend a lot of money on it too.
It's important to add Omega-3 to your diet. This can be done by incorporating flax seeds or chia seeds. Flax seeds should be grounded before consumption so they are absorbed well. However, it's best not to purchase the already grounded flax seeds, but to ground them shortly before consumption. This can be done with a high power blender or a simple coffee grinder. One can sprinkle these seeds on a salad, a hot meal, baked goods, in a smoothie or oats dish and more.
