Isn't it expensive to be a Vegan?

There is no one answer fits all for this question as it obviously depends on your personal choice and what you're eating.
For me it's not at all expensive. I'm a 18 year old University student living in the UK so I don't have much money to spend at all on food. I eat a lot of beans,pulses,pasta,cans of tomatoes, tofu, peanut butter.....basically all the cheap staple foods that won't go out of date for 3 years and that cost very little. I do eat fresh fruit and veggies but because i'm saving money by not buying meat this means that I have a little extra to put towards fresh foods. I occasionally treat myself to fake meats (sorry Dino!) as I did love meat (can't remember why now) but as with all processed food I know it's better for my health and my wallet to give it a miss.
