    Hi Rowan, thanks for your comment. It depends a lot on what you eat. Some vegan specialty foods, especially highly processed ones, are sometimes more expensive than their non-vegan counterparts, but most people find it easy to eat a plant-based diet that is in fact cheaper than a diet that includes animal products. Vegan staples such as pasta, rice, tofu, and beans are much cheaper than meat. You mention organic produce, and while there are lots of good things about eating organic, these are quite independent of a plant-based diet, which just means avoiding animal products.

    Here is a quote from Vegan Kit (

    “Veganism is not expensive. While there are plenty of nonvegans ready to tell you otherwise, this is largely due to the myth that vegans are eating processed soy versions of what everyone else eats. In fact, vegans survive mainly on beans, rice, pasta, fruits, and vegetables—the cheapest ingredients on earth.”

    I’ve heard that vegan diets are a bit heavier on finance than others because of organic options and all that? Just wondering how true this is?
