Ask Me Anything: Money. Money for Plants.

MONEY. Everyone wants it, but no one wants to talk about it. I have no problem letting you take a peek at my finances (everything except the bitcoin account haha). Let's talk about money. 

Is eating plant based expensive?

No. 

What about organic vegetables and fruits? Those are pricey.

Organic is great. However, most people do not eat the recommended 2 cups of veggies a day. You will see significant changes in your health if you just do that. The incremental change (in most cases) from eating organic will not be as significant

I don't believe you that eating plant based isn't expensive.
