Hi! I'm Kiz, and I'm new here. Nice to meet you all(if anybody actually reads this)!
Anyway, when I was younger, I spent about six years as a vegetarian. I adore animals, and don't see why they should have to die just to sate my appetite; I mean, what makes me so much more important than them, right?
I only defaulted on this diet/lifestyle because, well, I couldn't afford to keep it up. I was (and am) on a very low budget, and it just seemed that eating meat was much cheaper than looking for the substitues. It was like, because of my monetary situation, I couldn't afford to both keep the lifestyle I had (ie; meatless) and keep the necessary amount of nutrients in my diet.
However, I do still feel really quite guilty when I eat meat. It tastes good, sure, but... it doesn't really feel worth it, you know?
So anyway, the point I'm trying to make is, I've been strongly considering veganism as the way to go for a long time now, but I just don't know if I can afford it.
Sometimes I have as a little as £10 to feed myself with (after paying bills, obviously), sometimes up to a fortnight.
Is it still feasible for me to be vegan?
Does anybody have any advice for vegansim (or even just vegetarianism at this point; every little helps, right?) on a budget?
All suggestions are appreciated.
