I am seriously considering going vegan... Most days out of the week at least. I love sushi way too much to go 100% veg. I have been browsing around and I know I wouldn't mind the food, it all looks and sounds delicious. My problem is the price of the groceries I would have to buy. I am a college student who can't find a job and I don't have a stove or oven either. I'm hoping maybe someone will comment and let me know what they think.
I would not be going vegan because I think eating animals is wrong, that's what they are there for. That and being cute of course. Don't worry PITA people, I only eat the ugly ones (chicken and fish). I would be going veg for health reasons. My stomach has become very sensitive for some reason and I think that maybe changing over to a more plant based diet might help. We shall see. I'm going to go check out Whole Foods and Lowes Foods tomorrow to see about how much their vegetarian foods are. I already drink Light Silk and eat tofu every now and then but that's about as far as I've ever gone. I know they aren't that much more expensive than regular products but I've seen other things that are kind of pricey.
Another of my big concerns is even being able to FIND some of this stuff. I don't know how many times I've had a recipe and gone in search of the ingredients just to have to people at the grocery store look at me like I'm stupid. Living in North Carolina is hard for those of us who don't wish to eat everything fried. I'm hoping when I move to a bigger city this fall that there will be more choice as far as groceries and restaurants. Wish me luck and any comments or advise would be greatly appreciated!
