Debunking the "Vegan is Expensive" Myth

So I come across many folks who say “Well if going vegan were cheaper, I’d totally do it” or “If it were simpler and more accessible, I’d totally go vegan.” Well, I’m here to let everyone know that it is no only more affordable then the average American diet but it is extremely accessible.

I’m willing to concede that living in Los Angeles makes following a plant based diet very easy although despite all of delicious vegan restaurants around, I still tend to eat most of my meals at home. Why? Well, it’s not only much more cost effective but it’s also much healthier. I became vegan for health and even though there are some killer veggie joints around, I don’t want to become a vegan junk fooder. Sure I could always order a salad but it’s way to tempting to go for a sloppy slice of vegan pizza or cake when you’re at a fully veg restaurant. And along with the premium you pay to stuff your mug with green cuisine, add in tax and tip and it’s easily $20 per person.Yes, I agree, that puts a dent in the old wallet if you are eating a majority of your meals out.

But in actuality, eating plant based meals at home with easily save you a minimum of $75 a month on groceries as well as hundreds on dining out. So vegans who live in Podunk, U.S.A have it better, financially, as they don’t have all the access to overpriced veggie eateries. Plus they have the opportunity to get creative with healthy recipes and save their hard earned money to put toward other fun things instead.

No matter which way you slice it, cooking at home is just healthier. You can control what goes into your food as well as your portion sizes so you’re not subject to extra oil, sodium, sugar, etc found in restaurant food. Plus when you cook at home, you can really have it your way.

But back to issue at hand, saving moola while being healthy. In this economy, we’re all looking for ways to save and cut back. The best way is to go plant-based because no matter where you are, you can find fresh veggies, beans, seeds and grains. Getting back to basics is key and will save you a ton of green – here’s how & why:

  • Buy in bulk – You can find bulk bins full of spices, dried fruit, beans, nuts & seeds as well as grains. You can buy as much as you need or buy a ton, store in airtight glass containers and use as needed. It’s much more cost effective to buy this way because you aren’t paying for fancy packaging or a brand name. Plus you can get as much or as little as you want
  • Make your own everything - Almond milk, flour, bread and baked goods, salad, sauces, etc. With all the goodies you buy in bulk, you can make virtually everything you need. Steel cut oats or quinoa with home made cashew milk is way better then any instant packaged stuff. Time consuming? Not if you plan correctly! I prep for the week on Sunday evenings so that I don’t...
