Live Planted- Practical Vegan Living
About This Show
Live Planted is a weekly Podcast about living a practical vegan lifestyle. Alyssa, the show's host, is a Midwestern girl who felt the need to create a space based on living a plant based life in the easiest way possible. The show goes into health, wellness, activism, environmentalism, cruelty free practices, sustainability, animal rights, and how to make it all work while living a 'regular' life.
Live Planted aims to inspire and educate listeners by letting you in on a little secret: I don't have it all figured out either, but here are some things I've learned along the way. During the show I talk with awesome guests, like former Mtv VJ Lauren Toyota, Cara Livermore of Chickpea Magazine, and Hannah Howlett of 'High Carb Hannah' Youtube fame. The show has hosted vegan artists, tiny house builders, bakers, professional vegan athletes, plant based recipe creators, movie directors, health coaches, dads, and many more.
Part of the show is spent breaking down topics like 'soy: good or bad?', 'the realities of fish’, or 'how to travel while vegan'. There'll be ways to go vegan at your own pace, and ways to stay vegan for the long term. Join me in this pursuit to connect with like minded people. You can find the full show notes and more at LivePlanted.com.

#041 Vegan on a Budget- How to Save Money on a Plant Based Diet
2 days ago
One of the biggest myths about going vegan is that it's expensive. Well, it is simply not true. Compare the cheapest cuts of meat, such as ground round, on average it's $3 a pound and up. In contrast, dried beans cost on average $1 per pound. Rice and potatoes are both less than $1 per pound. A 10lb bag of potatoes costs $1.99 total at my grocery store, that equals 19 cents a pound. Even if you're a vegan who buys more convenient, pre-packaged goods you can still save money compared to someone who loads up on the animal goods.
In this conversation we're only talking money, we're not adding in the extra factors like health care costs, irreversible environmental strains, as well as the lives of millions of animals. No matter the monetary savings, each year a vegan saves more than 100 lives. If you're still debating on going vegan because of cost, know that you can do it on a budget big or small.
In this episode you'll find 4 main ways to save, including practices to put into place that help you save big. The more you practice something the more it becomes a habit, before you know it you'll be saving money all over the place. Lets continue the conversation on Twitter, if you have a money saving tip tweet it to me @LivePlanted.
