U.S. News Says Going Vegan is Cheaper

Ditching meat in favor of vegetables and whole foods is a budget-friendly option.

A recent feature published by media outlet U.S. News and World Report advised readers that adopting a meat-free diet is a cheaper alternative. For practical tips, the publication turned to Emily Winsauer (founder of the website Knox Vegan), who believes that going vegan is “a lot more affordable than people think.” Winsauer pointed out that she avoids plant-based meat alternatives and packaged products and instead purchases vegetables, almond milk, and chickpeas, while opting for cooking meals at home rather than going out to restaurants. “[If] you were going to get steak for $6 or $8 to go with this meal,” Winsauer said, “and instead you pay a dollar for a can of beans as an alternative ... over the course of the year [that adds up],” adding, “you can take that and go on a trip." This features comes on the heels of a bogus report by United Kingdom-based coupon site VoucherCodesPro that claimed following a vegan diet costs £2,000 ($2457) more annually than a meat-centric one.
