Living in Montreal has certain perks when it comes to finding excellent local, organic veggie food – and at a reasonable price. A common myth I’ve come across concerning eating well, eating local, eating organic, eating vegan/vegetarian.. or any combination of the above, is that it is too costly. I beg to differ and, since I am currently unemployed, I need to make a point of finding economical means of getting good food on a budget. Certainly, purchasing processed, pre-packaged organic, vegan fare can be costly, but that is true of processed, pre-packaged non-organic, mystery products too.
Lately I’ve been exploring restaurants, cafés, grocery stores and yoga studies at reduced price – even free – thanks to The Green Consciousness Guide / Le Guide Conscience Verte. It is packed with coupons redeemable at dozens.. no, make that hundreds, of local, eco-conscious businesses – including many 2 for 1 deals at vegetarian/vegan restaurants and entire free weeks of yoga at several studios. For $20 it can pay for itself with one use!
