Hey siblings, so I've been wanting to go ovo-lacto vegetarian for a long time and originally my plan was to start that after I moved out but I figured I'd start while I was still with my parents because my mother's almost a dietician in her own right. She's given me a few weeks to work out what I'm going to eat and she's giving me some help on the way.
the twist is that I have a weekly budget of $100 and after those few weeks I'm totally on my own aside from said budget. I've done some googling and I've gotten some books but the problem is that pretty much the only recurring ingredient for lots of the stuff I've come across is lentils and tofu, neither are a problem for me but it won't be fruitful to have a few recipes with no ingredients in common because I'll end up spending too much money on bits and pieces that expire before they can be used up. Since this forum has so many vegetarians and vegans I'd imagine you guys would be able to help heaps here.
But long story short, I need a hand with getting some recipes that have lots of ingredients in common so I'm not wasting heaps. I'm not too fussed on what I eat though I would prefer more vegetables than mock meats and the processed junk that I see in stores, so long as I get the right stuff to function I'm pretty happy.
