okay so I've been really really wanting to go vegan for the past 6 months and really just don't see how I can do it. I have been a vegetarian for 3 years and can drop all of the eggs, cheese, dairy etc in a heart beat, so that's not the problem. I'm really just on such a tight budget living with my family and being in high school on a minimum wage job. I'm really trying to save my money for a car and for the future, I'm not looking to spend a lot of money (or any) on vegan food. My mom does still buy food for me since I'm still a minor, but I feel like if I switched to vegan I wouldn't be able to have a well balanced vegan diet with how much money we have. What are some cheap ways to be vegan and have a HEALTHY, well balanced vegan diet?
Please be careful taking advice from nutritionists, anyone can call themselves a ‘nutritionist’ without having any qualifications at all. To get professional, well-qualified advice please speak to a dietician.
I’ve done a bit of research and most nutritionist say that if You are or are planning to be a vegan, to be a mindful of getting protein, i don’t think its something that i shouldnt worry about, but i’ve gotten great answers from people about getting protein easily and cheaply, so don’t worry about me
Unless you have a protein defficiency disorder then you really don’t need to worry about getting enough protein, it’s in everything we eat! (Apart from sugar and alcohol). But if you need to tell parents, vegan-doubters etc. about protein then tell them that tofu, beans, pulses, nuts etc. are all great sources of vegan protein.
