There is a real misconception around the cost of eating meat-free and the idea that healthy foods are expensive. This is something we hear or say a lot. Many people have said to me I would love to looking eating healthy but cooking from scratch its expensive. This is the same as vegans eating Vegan meals at a fast food restaurant, if you truly care about your health you’ll know how to look after it. This idea that junk food is cheaper is ridiculous.
The fact that as a nation we saved more than £6bn last year by cutting their meat intake, a new poll claims. This only shows you it is possible to make a a healthier lifestyle choices.
More than 12 million people ate less pork, beef and chicken in 2019 compared to previous years, according to the study.
It is estimated that they each saved around £550 by doing so.
The poll, which surveyed 2,000 people for vegetarian brand Linda McCartney’s, found that more than a fifth intended to reduce their intake further or even eliminate meat from their diet completely.
Around 28 per cent said saving money was one of the biggest motivations for doing so, while at least 51 per cent believe meat is too expensive.
Nearly half said they intended to be more or completely meat-free in 2020 in order to help the planet.
