Rice and beans are the two most readily available and inexpensive foodstuffs in the world. If you give a shit about animal welfare (ie: not consuming animals or their byproducts because you recognize that they're sentient beings and we don't need to eat them to survive), then you can go vegan. Regardless of where you are. I lived in a food desert in rural Culpeper this past summer for six weeks while at archaeology field school, you know, back when gas was $5/gal+. The only vegan options I could find were taco bell and burger king impossible whoppers. I quite literally lived off of the $1 sides of rice and beans from taco bell for six weeks while lifting hundreds of pounds of soil daily. There's no excuse if you actually give a single shit about animals. You can go vegan. If I could live off of taco bell rice and beans for six weeks while doing strenuous manual labor, then you can do it too.
