The Vegan culture: Being a vegan doesn’t have to be expensive

Vegan culture is soon catching up with the mass crowd all over the world. The idea and practice of saying no to animal exploitation has been in question. People on both sides seem to make a valid explanation about their beliefs. Veganism is basically saying no to the consumption of meat and animal products. It is not just about the food but the lifestyle of animal product-free living. It came into existence due to the exploitation of livestock for its meat, fur, milk, etc. It soon caught up with the elite crowd.  Veganism is expensive as compared to the common vegetarian or non-vegetarian, but not anymore. If you are someone who truly believes in Veganism and has not tried it because it can be heavy on the pocket. This blog is for you. Here are a few, cheap, local, healthy and sustainable choices for a vegan lifestyle.


Milk and other dairy products are the biggest challenges in switching to a vegan diet. Almond milk and Cashew milk are expensive choices. Soya milk on the other hand has all the nutrients and is loaded with antioxidants. Soya milk is packed with Omega 3 and is great for hormonal imbalance in women. This is a perfect healthy breakfast choice.

There are a few options to choose from:

Sofit Milk Natural, Sugar-free

Soo Good Milk Chocolate flavored

Mother Dairy Coffee Chocolate Milk


Butter is another such dairy product that we cannot do without, be it using as a spread or for breakfast. There are a lot of options when we talk about vegan butter. Nut butter is a common choice; most of them can be expensive. Peanut butter is one such option that is local, easily available, and easy on the pocket. Peanut butter can easily be made at home. But there are plenty of readymade options as well.

Peanut butter choices:

Wing greens Chocolate Peanut Butter

Sundrop Crunchy Peanut Butter

Veg meat

Quitting meat for someone who is used to meat can prove to be tough. Even with all the right intentions, we are unable to quit meat sometimes. Veg meat is a great alternative and also helps keep your craving at bay. Veg meat is plant protein made to feel like animal meat. Mushrooms and soya are known for their meat-like texture and are a favorite among vegan enthusiasts. They are very expensive yet they are high in protein and perfect veg meat.

Here are a few options:

Ready to Cook Vezlay Veg Meat

Gooddot Vegetarian Plant-Based Meat

Beyond Meat Sausage

Vegan Galawati Kabab

Vegan Soap Bar

Being a vegan doesn’t just mean diet but also lifestyle. Most of the beauty products are tested on animals. These animals are kept in confinement and the worst of situations. During the testing, these animals are put through hell and many end up losing their life. The daily essential items might seem so simple when brought to the table but in reality, the journey is a scary one. Plant-based and cruelty-free soap bars are hard to find and harder to trust. If you truly want to make a difference, here are a few Vegan Soap bars to choose from.

The Herbalist Basil Rosemary Spa Bar

Iremia Orange Oil Soap Bar

Just Herbs Coconut Handmade Bathing Bar


Snacking even in a healthy vegan cannot be skipped. Snacking in between meals helps control blood sugar and also helps keep full. Not all snack options are unhealthy. A snack can be healthy, interesting and fulfill your cravings as well.

Here are a few options to choose from

Ketofy Mini Keto Snack Pack

Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Vegan Cookie

Healthy Treat Roasted Bhel Mix      

Fitter Millet Chikki Bar

Any change in lifestyle is difficult. A vegan lifestyle may seem challenging; the key to getting there is trying. Vegan enthusiast Davegan Raza said, “If you think that being vegan is difficult, imagine being a factory-farmed animal.” Happy Veganism!
