I could probably live like that for a lifetime if I had my own home. On campus, the fruit cups cost more than burger and fries combined. It is hard to live a vegan lifestyle when the things that are grown from the earth cost more than the things walking the earth. In America, we would rather spend our money on fast foods because we live faster lifestyles compared to other
