Why do vegan products cost so darn much?

It doesn't seem fair to be penalized for trying to do the right thing. Why do you think vegan products cost so much?

The processed ones cost a lot--you're right. But you can eat vegan without buying them. The non-vegan vegetarian products are also spendy (Quorn, Morningstar Farms, Boca...)

Actually, in the long run and if you do it right, you will save money.

Also, isn't it worth a bit more of cash for something that is actually beneficial to your body instead of the cheap junk most people consume?

Here's an awesome guide to vegan shopping:

 Love that site! Also, I don't know what country you're from, but I've found alot of cheap stuff in England. What I will say is that you have to do a lot of your own preparation and cooking... but it's all worth while!

When buying healthy nature-based foods, you shouldn't have to be digging holes in your wallet. It's actually quite brilliant.

Yes, much preperation and cooking involved. A healthy vegan can't be a lazy vegan... wink
