My father is concerned with the price of my being vegan.
He sees heaps of bananas, pears and apples in our kitchen and assumes they cost much more than meat and dairy products.
I am convinced feeding myself raw is much more appropriate health wise and also considering I'm a student.
What do you think? :)
Thanks much in advance for your comments!
100% raw can be kind of expensive, but vegan can be very cheap! staples like potatoes, sweet potatoes, rice, quinoa, etc. are really cheap.
buy in bulk and buy in season. you can get huge portions of fruits & veg cheaply if you shop at the right places (farmers markets and places like costco). also, you can get dates somewhat cheaply as well. bananas are a good staple, but cooked vegan food tends to be cheaper.
hope this helps!
(p.s. tofu is pretty cheap as well!)
Berries are the most pricey. If you stock up on berries when they are on sale(freeze) then the cost is about the same. I see my friends dropping $10 for fast food lunch with the big ass soda. $10 gets me a few days worth of Romaine.
It can be as low as $150 some months and upwards of $400 on other months. Depends a lot on if I buy in season or not and whether or not I get to the produce market.
Does your Dad have a budgeted amount he wants to spend on groceries for you?
depending how many deals I can pick up, and how many raw sweet potatoes I eat, 200-400 a month.
