Eating vegan on a budget

Fri, 04/18/2014 - 12:57pm
div class="story-teaser story-teaser-blog" div class="body" pConfession: I am not a full-time vegan. The last time I went totally meat and dairy free was the summer after I graduated from high school when I was working as a camp counsellor. I ate a lot of fake tofu chicken fingers and my legs were covered in mosquito bites. Just when I thought I might begin university as a full-blown hippie, the smell of bacon called me back to the omnivorous fold./p pOver the years, though, I've grown less and less dependent on meat.
