Last month I wrote a post in response to an article I had read in The Daily Beast where they interviewed Kris Carr about veganism. In it the interviewer made references that veganism requires a celebrity chef to prepare vegan meals, an assistant to run to the health food store for agave, and pricey vegan shoes from Stella McCartney. I refuted these claims by showing one can eat, furnish their home, and dress their family cheap, easy, and vegan at Walmart. Can’t get more accessible than that. Or, can you? Yes, actually, you can.
It’s my position that veganism is not an inaccessible lifestyle that only the urban rich can attain. No. Veganism is a simple, budget-friendly, accessible lifestyle that anyone can attain. Anyone, anywhere.
I decided to take my camera to the local-on-the-corner convenience store and see what I could dig up, vegan-style.
Here’s my disclaimer: I’m not saying all these foods are the healthiest choices for vegans (or anyone). What I am saying is that these vegan foods are available in a pinch. It is a convenience store after all.
