• (nearly) Raw Veganism on a Budget

    I’ve seen a lot of people (not here, but in the Raw Food community) saying how they can’t adapt to a raw vegan diet because it’s too expensive.
    I’m on food stamps for a one person household (no shame. no shame.), which means $200 a month for food. I also use my food stamps to buy most of my “cleaning” and “beauty” products (vinegar, baking soda, etc.), and I generally stick to an 80%-90% raw vegan diet, and fully unprocessed (I supplement with beans and grains).
    So, I’ve decided to start a blog to try to help people who are interested on transitioning to a raw vegan diet, but who are on a limited budget.
    I’ll be the first person to admit that a fully raw diet on $200 or less a month, is just completely impossible if you want to meet all your nutritional and caloric needs. Unless you have access to an awesome garden… which I do not.
    But 80%-90%… even 50%! raw is soooo much better for you than a diet full of cooked and processed foods. And I want to share how I manage to achieve it, with anyone who is interested.
    I’ll be posting weekly meal plans, the shopping lists, and how much everything ended up costing/which stores I bought it at :)

    I have grown up with 7 brothers and sisters. 4 brothers, 3 sisters. I was raised eating animal products, and never once was taught to value animals. When I was 13 years old I did some research for myself and found out the horrible truth's behind the meat industry. Continued my research to this day on concerning topics. Im now an animal activists and have been teaching people about these horrors I've discovered and how we as a group can speak up for these creatures whoo can't do it for themselves.
