Since 2006, Brandi has been committed to fulfilling her dreams and maintaining her raw vegan lifestyle; however, it has had its obstacles. One major challenge was figuring out how to afford this seemingly expensive lifestyle while on a small student stipend. And let’s just say, it took her a long to figure it out. For most of her time as a raw vegan, Brandi’s grocery bills were out of control. She would spend $500-$600 a month just to feed herself. Her justification was simple: fruits and vegetables are expensive, so being raw vegan is going to be expensive. But the truth was that she was not managing her grocery bills and, as a result, was wasting a lot of money and food, and driving herself into debt.
Then it all changed. The economy went into a crisis and all the major credit card companies increased their interest rates as much as possible. All of sudden, Brandi had to deal with the debt she had accrued from failing to manage her food bills. Though it took her a few months, she finally decided to take steps towards reducing her debt. Her first step was obvious: she had to tackle her grocery bills. She made very small adjustments at first, and it was the feeling of success from these small steps that planted the seeds for Raw Foods on a Budget. Over a few short months, Brandi was able to reduce her monthly food bills in half!
