So you’ve set out to eat healthier. Your first step? A trip to the grocery store to load up on all of the foods that you’ve learned about in books, documentaries and websites. It’s an exciting, empowering experience…until you get to the checkout and find out that your total price is more than you expected. You start to panic ‒ how can you possibly eat this way on your budget?!
Are you tired of feeling like money is holding you back from enjoying delicious food? Good. If you’re fed up with feeling constrained then that means you’re ready to make a change. Have you have been avoiding organic foods because you’ve been convinced that they’re not worth it, or worrying and/or complaining about the cost of eating a whole foods plant-based diet? By the end of this book you’ll have a whole new perspective.
Advertisements and conversations may have us thinking that it’s too expensive to eat well, while this book delivers the truth. You don’t need to be rich to enjoy the finer things in life, whether you consider that a bag of macadamia nuts or a night out at a nice restaurant. All you need are a few tips to understand how, when, and where to spend your money. You now have an abundance of advice at your fingertips (literally), which can save you thousands of dollars a year.
There is something for everyone in here, no matter how much money you have in the bank, where you live or how you’ve been eating up until now. My aim is to inspire, educate and empower you to make the best food choices for yourself, and this book will help you come up with a plan. Don’t be afraid to stretch outside of your comfort zone and cut yourself slack when necessary. You don’t have to do anything perfectly or 100% ‒ focus on progress instead of perfection and know that change, no matter how small, is better than standing still in an unhappy place.
The pages to come include what I’ve learned over a decade of being vegan and educating myself about how food impacts our health and the environment. While I’m not a doctor, nutritionist, or scientist, I am a researcher and the information has been pulled from hundreds of sources and years of personal experience. Since it’s impossible to cover EVERYTHING on healthy vegan living, I have plenty of resources for you to check out at the end of this book.
I want to congratulate you for embarking on the journey to feeling your best and living the best life possible ‒ not everyone has the courage to jump in and make changes like you, so you deserve a giant virtual pat on the back. In buying this book, you’ve made a commitment to yourself to lead the life you desire without stress. I’m proud of you!
