In: Podcast0

In this episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast, we talk with Toni Okamoto of Plant-Based on a Budget. How cool is that? She has become a plant-based/vegan superstar and we are enjoying making recipes from her book! We talk about what got her into the plant-based world and how the community was everything for her. Of course, we talk about saving time, money, and headaches when planning and making plant-based meals. You know Shoshana loves talking about freezing food and Toni lets us in on a tip about product placement in the grocery stores!

Toni Okamoto is the founder of Plant-Based on a Budget, the popular website and meal plan that shows you how to save dough by eating veggies. She’s also the author of the Plant-Based on a Budget Cookbook, co-author of The Friendly Vegan Cookbook, and the co-host of The Plant-Powered People Podcast. Okamoto’s work has been profiled by NBC News, Parade Magazine, and she’s a regular presence on local and national morning shows across the country, where she teaches viewers how to break their meat habit without breaking their budget. She was also featured in the popular documentary What the Health. When she’s not cooking up a plant-based storm, she’s spending time with her husband and their rescued dog in Sacramento, CA.
