Vegetarian is definitely cheaper IF you do not fall for the prefab meat like meals. I have been a vegetarian for over 35 years and one day my tax preparer said to me "DO you realize how much you save by not buying meat or fish? About 3000.00 to 7000.00 dollars a year for a family of 4!" So hey you can save a lot over 35 years. There are so many wonderful recipes on line and in books. I do not know why so many people seek to replace the taste of meat or fish when they try to become vegetarian by buying boca burgers etc. It is even cheaper to become vegan because the price of cheese is high. I do want you to make sure you take vitamin B12 and make sure you mix rice and beans for protein. good luck
