I've been a vegetarian for about 4 years. I didn't become a vegan because I thought it would be asking a lot of my parents, who are already generous enough to spend extra money to buy me vegetarian food (the rest of my family eats meat), to also buy me non-dairy food as well. I'm turning 18 this October, and two of my friends and I are talking about renting a trailer and living together for a couple of years. We're all buying and making our own food. Which means that I only have to buy for myself. Which will make it a lot easier for me to become a vegan. So my question for all the vegans here is: What companies make good, cheap vegan food? And any advice on actually going about becoming a vegan would be great, too. Thank you.
