Cons

Home prepared vegan food should not cost much, but if you rely on processed ones like vegan meat, it could be pricier than a regular omnivore diet. Also, soy milk and almond milk are more expensive than regular cow's milk. Besides, veganism is not just about food. It is a lifestyle where you would choose makeup - / toiletries and other products that are cruelty - free / vegan. These could be more on pricey side than regular ones. When do right, plant - base diet can be easy to follow,. However, sudden change in lifestyle can be overwhelming. Instead, it is better to cut back on animal products gradually and rely more on plant - base foods. One size does fit all and the ideal diet for any individual depends upon various personal factors like age and health conditions. So, to ensure that you are doing it in the best way possible for your optimal health, pay close attention to how you feeling on way. If youre not feeling your best, it might not be the right diet for you.
