Update: Cheap Lazy Vegan

I joined a Beginners Vegan Facebook group and got a lot of good suggestions on how to get cheap plant based meals that fit in my budget and require no prep and no cooking (besides microwave). I’m ordering the stuff they suggested on , I’m going to try it out for a week and see how I like it, if I like it I’ll probably stick to it.

The thing that swayed me is reading studies about how vegan blood does actually fight cancer better than meat-eaters blood and vegan/vegetarians have over 30% less risk for disease overall. Vegans do get cancer and disease like everyone else though and on Twitter I named  actual vegan people who have died from cancer and heart disease. But you do lower your risk significantly when you switch to a plant based diet.

I am currently perfectly healthy but I want to remain that way. I am concerned abut clogging my arteries and developing diabetes. I need to eat way less saturated fat. Replacing meat with vegetables can help with that.

I don’t know if I can go FULL vegan, cause even a lot of the Steamers vegetables they suggested on Facebook has butter and cheese on it, but there are some options that do not. For now I will try a plant-based diet that is not full vegan but is more lacto-ovo vegetarian. I’m going to eat more beans and rice and vegetables and less Hot Pockets and Luncheables.

Someone suggested I look at http://www.thecheaplazyvegan.com

She’s ok but does require some meal prep and cooking for her meals. I haven’t used a stove or chopped food in over a year.

I may do vegetarian 5 days a week and then when I go out with my girls or family, eat a little meat twice a week. I’ll let you guys know how it goes and post the meals I eat.
