Play • 46 min

Today we have with us Toni Okamoto, author of Plant Based On A Budget, to talk about what got her started on the plant journey, what the change was like, and the positive benefits she has experienced. Money was very tight when she went plant based, yet she was still able to create affordable meals that were completely plant based and healthy, so she decided to compile family based recipes, turn them plant based, making sure the ingredients were accessible, and she put them on plantbasedonabudget.com. We discuss creating meal plans and what you can do to save and eat healthy.

“One thing that I heard that was preventing them from eating healthier, despite what the doctors were saying, is that it was too expensive, and at that time I was sharing a bedroom with two other people, I rode a bike everywhere, I didn’t have any money, yet I was still eating plant based. So it was confusing to me that that was something that was such an obstacle, that it could possibly lead to death. My family literally, they were dying.” 11:36
