3 easy vegan recipes from the meal plan that feeds your family for a £1 a day

Want to know how to feed your family delicious vegan food that doesn’t cost a bomb? Rachel Musson, founder of Loved and Enough, has a free seven day vegan meal plan featuring meals that costs £1 a day per person

Rachel Musson has been vegan for over a decade, starting off as a vegetarian and at one point, going completely raw. She recently founded Loved and Enough, a community for those looking to embrace the vegan lifestyle, from the complete novice to the seasoned pro and everyone in between.

Through her own personal journey, and the creation of Loved and Enough, Rachel decided to make it her mission to ‘take the hassle out of eating vegan’ after constantly being asked how she lives this lifestyle, with the assumption it must be both expensive and time consuming.

‘Many people aren’t aware of how easy it can be to enjoy great vegan food and how economical’, with this in mind Rachel decided to show people just how simple it can be. Rachel decided to create VegPlan to do just that.

VegPlan is a free 7 day menu (with breakfast, lunch and dinner), that feeds your family hearty, tasty vegan food, for just £1 per person, per day. You can subscribe to the seven day plan at here to kick-start your vegan journey.

Here’s a one day taster menu:
