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.
