Adopting a vegan diet is neither costly, nor time - consuming. To the contrary, a diet based on fruits, vegetables, legumes and grains/cereals is actually much cheaper than one including meat and other animal – derived products. All you need is proper planning. As far as food preparation is concerned, spending a few minutes in the kitchen is more than enough to prepare a tasty and nutritious vegan meal. You may even choose one day, when you are able to dedicate a couple of hours to prepare your meals for the week ahead. When dining out, things are much easier than what you imagine. Every restaurant, even steak houses, offer vegan options, even if they aren’t labelled as such. All you have to do is ask for a plate of grilled vegetables and a side of rice (or French fries if you are feeling adventurous), and in just a few minutes you will can enjoy a delicious vegan meal, for which no animal lost its life.
