Sharing is Caring
Although Plant Based on a Budget is not a non-profit (we make zero money and only spend our own on keeping this blog running), I believe that it is a valuable resource worth supporting. In 2013, myself and the wonderful contributors of the blog poured ourselves into providing thoughtful articles, tasty recipes and free meal plans to prove that you can eat a healthy, plant based diet on a low fixed-income.
It is my passion to continue educating myself and others about important issues regarding lack of fresh food access/ nutrition education in low-income and people of color communities, as well as shedding light on ethical animal issues. With the support of the community, I believe that Plant Based on a Budget can become a powerful resource for those who are trying to eat healthier, transition to a plant based diet or trying to show friends and family that vegan food is regular food.
Other bloggers have monetized their websites through advertisements on their page, and I have decided against doing that. The nature of our blog is very specific, and it is very important for me to stay in line with my ethics by not promoting the random things on Google AdSense, as well as keeping true to our mission to show that you don’t need to have specialty vegan products to sustain on a plant based diet — therefore, we don’t have ads for vegan specialty products.
