How I Ate Healthy And Vegan For Only $25 A Week

I would go vegan but it’s too expensive.

That’s what they say as they play games on their iPad, Text on their iPhone, smoke their cigarettes and drink their 20 ounce bottle of cola.

The simple fact is you can be a vegan on a budget. Just like making the decision to go vegan seemed intimidating for most people to begin with, so does planning for a vegan budget. But you can do it!

I have debated the costs of going vegan a million times. First of all the food is mostly cheaper. Compare most fruits and vegetables to steak or pork chops. Bacon prices are insane! And then you have all of the health cost down the road for eating all of your meat products. But we all know it’s mostly excuses made by people who just want to eat their meat.

The fact is that we all make allowances for the things we consider most important in our lives. The same applies to veganism. Caring about animals, and our health, and the health of our families, are the most important things.

This article is for vegans on a budget. This article is for vegans who want to eat reasonably well but not spend a fortune doing it. I happened to stumble across The Plant Strong Vegan last year and her blog about eating on a budget.

How low of a budget?

How about $25 a week! She includes her shopping list and recipes to all of the meals she made. It’s really inspiring! You can get all of her advice, tips and tricks for saving money on a vegan diet on the next page.
