25 Meatless Meal Recipes For When Money Is Real Tight

25 Meatless Meals

Meat is always the most expensive part of any recipe. And depending on what type of meat you plan on cooking, the prices can go above and beyond the budgets of so many of us.

A few years back I started implementing a “Meatless Monday”, and it not only helped my budget, but it also gave my body a well needed break from having to digest meat.

But nowadays I probably do around 3 or 4 meatless days a week, and the effects on my budget are really positive!
