So, you want to eat a whole food, plant-based diet but don’t know where to start? And hardest of all, you have concerns that joining this lifestyle will cause your grocery bill to skyrocket? If you are impacted by these thoughts, let me tell you there is a solution to eating a healthy, plant-based diet that will not break the bank. It is a misunderstanding that vegetarians and vegans spend extra money on the food they enjoy when compared to others. While it is certainly possible to rack up the food bill on any diet, with a little planning ahead and some simple considerations before you run out to the store, you will find you are spending a similar amount (if not less) than you did before.
