There's this common misconception that a vegan diet consist of painfully bland and boring meals. In reality, there is so much you can do with a plant based diet, if you're willing to invest a little time into it. One of the main reasons why people think that vegans and even vegetarians survive on kale alone is because, when we go out to eat our options are so limited. That being said, it helps to know which restaurants in Halifax actually offer good vegan options.
This is a message for all students living the #poorstudentlife. You don't need to comprise eating healthy to save money. Yeah, there's no denying that a vegan or vegetarian diet can be pricey, but it all depends on where you shop. If you're a Pete's only grocery shopper than obviously you're going to break the bank. But you can also take advantage of student discounts at the Superstore on Tuesdays, and student discounts at places like the Bulk Barn on Wednesdays. Planning really make any type of diet achievable and affordable.
