This budget is based off of a hypothetical budget at discount stores or prices. This is a budget that represents the average person usual grocery shopping trip every other week for 1-2 people depending on how much food the individual or individuals need to maintain their weight and health. Of course, this budget would change if you were at Whole Foods, Dominick’s or any other grocery store that has few discount prices. Now, the budget price would not be dramatically different, but it may go up about $15-20 dollars at these stores for the same amount of people or person. If this is for a household you may want to multiple the budget by two which still brings the total for the average meat eats budget to about $66.59-71.59 and the vegan budget to about 58.68-63.68. These budget amount may fluctuate depending on how much the house eats and the kinds of foods they like for both vegan and meat eating budgets alike. So, this all goes to say that a vegan budget does not necessarily cost more. It depends of what individuals choice to buy as a meat eater or as a vegan.
