May's Link| Vegan on the Cheap

There is green absolutely everywhere right now and I love it.
Well, in between sticky retrograde vibes that is.

Last month was an article.

          This month is a Tumblr post | Vegan on the Cheap!

One of the misconceptions about veganism - and healthy eating in general really, is that it's expensive. I mean, with cheap fast food restaurants mainly specialising in meat-filled burgers, it's understandable how that thought came about, where are the vegan drive-throughs? Vegans can be lazy too! To be fair though, in the majority of restaurants the healthier option is often more expensive than that four cheese pizza...

Quite a few people I've had the pleasure of getting to know recently, have expressed how they want to be vegan but they currently don't feel they can afford to be. I wondered that too at first, but in actual fact, my weekly shop pretty much just consists of beans tins, fruit, nuts, veggies, almond milk, sweet potatoes, maybe a couple of nakd bars or soy yoghurts. Things like granola, cous cous, quinoa, chia seeds, pastas and rice last a while in the cupboard, so usually get topped up maybe once every one-two months or so. Other than that, I will sometimes buy hummus, maybe some (n)ice-cream, the supplements I take last ages, I don't like tofu much and I'm allergic to avocados...to me, that pretty much sounds like the kind of shopping list a meat eater would have, just with a few more vegetables and tins replacing the meat?

I know of course that there are other reasons why you may not be able to afford a well-balanced vegan diet just yet which is why I love this months link. This Tumblr post acknowledges that with a long list of various links to blogs, articles, meal plans and tips for how to eat a vegan diet, or if you aren't interested in a vegan diet, how to eat more healthily, a lot more affordably!
