As I have explored a more simplistic and minimalistic lifestyle, I have put more thought not only into what I allow into my mind and my physical space, but I have been more thoughtful about the quality of food I put into my body.
Veganism is a topic that floats around quite often in the minimalism community, and I have done a good deal of research myself on the issue and I think it is something worth checking out.
Before I go on, I must preface this post by saying that I am not a vegan, however, I try to eat a limited amount of meat and dairy as I have realized I feel more energized and “light” when I avoid those items. This post is also not to say that Taco Bell is “healthy” because of their easy-to-order vegan options, but the fact that I can combine a meat-less, dairy-less food option with affordability makes me well-rounded happy college kid.
If you’re like me and you are interested in taking care of your health and your bank account, I highly suggest checking out Taco Bell’s certified vegetarian menu. With a few tweaks, your cheap and quick meal can be free of animal products! (And pretty good too…)
