Jaime King Claims a Vegan Diet is Expensive but Admirable

As one of the stars on the CW’s “Hart of Dixie,” actress Jaime King makes more money than most of us, but she says that even her salary isn’t enough to afford a proper vegan diet.

According to her twitter feed, the actress admires the vegan lifestyle, but finds it tough to do on a budget.

King recently tweeted, “I feel like you have to be a gazilllionare to be a proper vegan. Like Ellen. Her skin in [sic] flawless. I need to save up for a chef.”

She followed that a few minutes later with, “Let me say when I mention vegan it’s a choice I admire for health, animal and earth reasons. Not for a ‘look.'”

It’s great to see that she appreciates the lifestyle for its health benefits (both for the person, animal and the planet), instead of as a means to get skinny, but it seems she’s a bit misinformed about how to go about it.

After all, I’m not sure where King does her grocery shopping, but last time I checked, bulk beans and grains were a lot more affordable than anything offered at the meat counter. Perhaps she just needs a lesson in budget vegan shopping — maybe Ellen could offer her some tips?

In the meantime, here’s hoping King finds articles like this one on how to go vegan on the cheap — maybe if she does, she’ll change her diet once and for all!
