While eating plant-based might seem more expensive on your next grocery store trip, it saves you money in the long-run- and maintains your health!
The key to eating plant-based on a budget is knowing how to shop, knowing what to buy, and what to make. Once you have these three things down, eating plant-based becomes natural and a lot less expensive too.
