    I did actually check out a phone book to see,and there's one health food store in my town. Called richard's. I looked online to find out more about them and it seems awesome. Just that they seem not to have too many vegan choices. Although,eggplant burgers sounds good.

    I just had a late lunch of wild rice and Lightlife Smart Tenders in Savory Chik'n. They were so ridiculously good, it was awesome. Not vegan though, just veggie.

    I know! I kept getting coupons for the Smart Tenders from Mambo Sprouts only to be disappointed. They looked yummy...

    Anyway, you all should sign up for Mambo Sprouts coupons. They're so useful in cutting veggie costs, especially on the fake meat and Cliff/Luna/protein bars.

    Well, polenta is basically like semolina, just wheat grains. So, if you do not add anything non-vegan to it, it is totally vegan (not knowing the habits of American producers, I'd say check on the box in case they add something to the wheat). And I guess you can find organic polenta, too.
    And polenta is yuuuummy!

    polenta is made out of ground corn and I'd be really surprised if it wasn't vegan if you buy it dry. You can buy it already cooked and that probably won't be.

    Yeah I almost messed up today,I went to my local health food store and grabbed one until I got down the aisle and saw the "with bacon pieces" and got another. It said it only contains corn and wheat. Also grabbed bulk cornmeal and coconut flakes. I'm just glad I noticed before I bought that other polenta that it had bacon...ugh!

    Have you tried shopping at a farmer's market? Buying directly from the growers is a way to cut cost and it's healthier. When I was in the UK, we found that most farmer's markets were cheaper than stopping by the store to buy our food.

    Cooking veggies takes just as long, if not less time to properly cook than meat. You should really learn to cook basic meals; the food is so much better and it impresses people! Google "__________ recipes" and you will find a plethora from which to choose.

    Thanks Carla I will try and get some more veg in my diet as i am trying to get in shape

    I just find due to having a psysically demanding job that im usually to tired to cook a propper meal when i get home

    and there are no farmers markets by me either
    I do my shopping at the local store because i have to carry it all home (not fun)
    and i try and make 30 pound last about 3 weeks
    its tough but managable if i dont eat very much per day

    Where exactly are you in south wales?

    You really need to eat more than 30 worth of food in 3 weeks.
