*Support an Effective Animal Charity*
I remember I went vegan in my freshman year of high school. We were REALLY poor and I developed a really bad eating disorder. Anyway, I only had one serving of rolled oats left. I put cayenne instead of cinnamon on accident and I think I cried for a full hour. It was the only food I had and I used the rest of my almond milk.
Videos like her’s make me rage inside.
@Maseki Chan You’re right. I don’t know the situation, but to say you have an eating disorder because you refuse to eat tortured corpses is inaccurate. I think she should have eaten them to survive in that case, but it does not sound like she couldn’t have had food. There is tremendous aid women and children in the developed world, and the cheapest and most accessible foods in aid centres are vegan, dry foods.
@Saxon Anglo again you don’t know the circumstances she was in and how it affected her ed
@MediocreHaddie That is such a load of crap…. Its sad that you guys have to go on videos like this to feel validated.
@The King’s Lady Hey guys, look, proof that UV’s videos are a detriment to the vegan movement! Great job everyone, high fives all round.

 OMG THANK YOU FOR THE LIKES!!!
I’m glad you made this. I normally love Hannah’s videos, but I was really upset when she claimed that literally anyone could be vegan even in a food desert.
Stephy Dippolito same!
Yeah i hope Hannah sees this and is receptive to message and doesn’t feel bullied or something
She really is a sweet person and i enjoy her content but she really missed the mark here and could make this better going forward or address her privilege
Julia I completely agree. She’s one of my favorite youtubers and I love her positivity. Hopefully this helps make the change.
Does she not realize food deserts are food deserts because they are way below the poverty line and therefore may not be able to afford services like Thrive Market?
@Alicia Leonard I never said that everyone could get it. I was just giving a heads up. Their whole thing is that they give out a free membership with every paid membership they get. I got my free one under 3 mins, they only asked 2 questions lol. It doesn’t hurt to try if you do qualify. No need to be so pessimistic.
@Trixxy Starr But OP didn’t mention that. She said, “people who can’t afford thrive market”. So I just mentioned that they offering free memberships, free shipping, and bonus discounts on top of the discounts they already have to people who qualify. It doesn’t hurt to check it out. Idky people get so hostile when you try to offer alternatives when it won’t hurt just to look for 2 seconds. If you don’t qualify yourself move on, but don’t discourage other people who could use it because it might really help them.
Alicia Leonard also, just because the plan is free, the food certainly isn’t. Some items on thrive are waaay overpriced thus adding to the lack of affordability of Thrive Market.
Some of us are vegan with ebt food stamps….you can’t do thrive with food stamps
@Bobbi Obanion You are so right. Plus housing uses up the money the working poor make. To afford a 2 bedroom apartment in Baton Rouge it is estimated that you need to make $16 an hour!
Ana M with out our tax funded educational system you couldn’t get that better job. If you don’t like how your taxes are spent call your congressman, and ask them about their tax funded salary and life long benefits.
How can anyone get all the nutrients they need just from beans and rice?
1234 yes you can be healthy and vegan on ebt. Anyone can be healthy on ebt. I absolutely hate the stigma that people on ebt only buy crap food. I’m speaking from personal experience. I was on food stamps with only $120 a month to spend on food. I was also on WIC which also supplied a little bit of food. I had the choice to buy 4 half gallons of soy milk, 2 packages of tofu, and $11 to spend on produce. I would only shop at discount food stores in my area like Market Basket and Price Rite. I made it work and it fed my partner and I as well as my baby (which WIC supplied formula, I was unable to breastfeed due to being on medication).
@Nickellous Dime farmer’s markets where I live are ridiculously expensive. I envy people who live where they are more affordable.
I want to adopted by a family that can afford Vitamix as Christmas present please
If you’re really looking for a good blender.. look into an Optimum blender. It’s still not cheap but not as expensive as Vitamix. I could never afford Vitamix either and I’m pretty well off but that price is absolutely crazy.
Hell yes. I want a vitamix but can’t afford it. So I am stuck with my nutribullet.
Everyone thank you for the shopping tips but the whole point of y comment is I want to be adopted by a family that throws that kind of money for Christmas presents, I kinda have a ten year plan mapped out. Material girl in a material world and all that 😉
I got a blender from goodwill for $3 and I don’t hate it. That and a food processor are most of my blending needs
Eden Yell hell yes! I know I spent under $50 for a kitchenaid food processor that works great. Not sure why people still think spending $200+ on a blender is realistic! That could be food for months for some people!
I’m plant based below the poverty line in the UK and just… it’s so hard and this is super offensive. Thanks for calling this out, Swayze.
Sending my thoughts of support your way! I recently read sth about groceries and cost of a healthy diet in the UK compared to Germany, where I live. Even though Germans are HUGE meat & cheese lovers, but you CAN buy affordable vegetables anywhere. I know I couldn’t afford to live the way I like and am used to if I lived in a different place.
@N R oooh I’ll have to look them up I don’t venture out Salford way very much (I’m up Rochdale way) my treat is always an ice cream from Gingers in Affies. Love that place.
@multicolourpixie ooh thanks. Luckily for me I budget ridiculously and I’m inventive in the kitchen so I haven’t needed that yet but I will be keeping it in mind just incase. It’s always good to have back-ups
I’m from uk too and financially pretty unstable but check stereotypical cheap store own food ! You’ll be surprised how much the stuff is vegan even that has meat flavour and that all below like 50p each
I flesh based diet is hard to follow too if you have to live below the poverty line….beans are cheaper then flesh.
Affordable and berries just don’t go together… Sorry Hannah
They go on sale a lot for like 2 dollars a pound some times which is affordable in Washington. Depends on your budget tho
frozen berries can be sometimes
Not unless you go to grammy’s and pick ’em yourself. God bless Memaw
@Corina Cucosand then you have to worry about Hep A because they might be imported 😖
Dumpster diving is my thing
What do people have against oil and salt??? Maybe it’s me being from a Mediterranean country, but I can’t imagine my kitchen without olive oil and sea salt.
Oh yes as a Mediterranean girl I can totally relate. If I run out of oil I just can’t cook!
white people hate flavor
F D one can go nowhere without finding racist comments like this 🙄
Chelsea Shurmantine thing is, the people in food deserts trying to be vegan could profit so much off oils, since they make meals a lot more filling and are really cheap. I avoid oil to stay low cal, but i think that‘s the last thing someone who maybe barely has access to three meals a day would want.
Oil is devoid of nutrients and high in calories. I avoid it because my goal is to lose weight and those are empty calories. And I don’t avoid salt but most people who eat whole food plant-based avoid it because it causes them to overeat. I try to limit salt but I ramp up the other seasonings.
Caitlin Shoemaker has a great video series where she makes vegan meals for $1.50 a day (which is below the poverty line) using stuff from the dollar store
I love Caitlin! She discusses privilege in those videos as well, and has a lengthy talk about it in her last video in that series.
@emilyletter I used the term diet specifically to say not to use it as a diet. Sorry that that wasn’t clear.
So does cheap lazy vegan
Yes it’s a great series
Look for Jesse Beautician or Madeleine Olívia good food!the best
You hate tahini? Miles is about to be so triggered…
I love miles
Alexis Who’s Miles 😂
@Amy Ahearne He’s Health Crazy Cool on YouTube
Joana Cordeiro Ah yes I know the one
@The African hahahah, I’m pretty sure that’s why they don’t get along
It’s also harder to lug around a 10lb sack of raw beans if you’re walking half an hour back home
I definitely recommend getting one of those shopping bags on wheels if you can afford one or find one… they definitely help hauling larger grocery shopping trips. IKEA and other places like that tend to have them.
Invest in a trolley. Are you kidding me? There is no fucking way you’re this poor.
@bobby No, it’s a thing. A lot of these people are just using poverty as an excuse for their poor dietary choices. America does have bicycles and buses.
@bobby I live in a rural southern area with no public transportation and you might die by time you make it biking to a store in the heat of summer. If you don’t have a car you’re screwed.
Having a bus system =/= having a good bus system with regular service that stops near your home
25:22 – 28:07 *Unnatural Vegan just did a better job in 3 minutes what Hannah couldn’t do in 25 minutes*
She can’t relate. She’s not poor. The sad part is she thinks she helping people!
@Millenial Syd no, it doesn’t. I didn’t use that word.
@allltheworldsastage I’m sure it took a lot for them to come to that decision. They are blessed to have been able to do so with a beautiful, intelligent, helpful family and everyone keeping their dignity and peace. ☺️ Maybe they’ll call their new bungalow California Vegan Privilege ✌️Or maybe they’ll simply call it home ❤️
@Layla Darby I’m not sure I understand. Are you saying that he eats more expensive food out of the house? That meat is cheaper than beans? Or that he’s not eating expensive strawberries or plant milk without additives at work therefore inadvertently helping to budget at home?
@Eden Yell I wish I could drive…
Emuna Bee I lived with my in laws for a long time while my husband and I looked for our house, and I can say with confidence that I was not anywhere near the poverty line. She did this to help save up just like I did. That’s not poverty. That’s still privilege.
I actually unsubscribed and unfollowed after she released that video and the video about hiking alone in the desert to face your fears 🤦♀️ It must be nice to have grown up in an atmosphere that allows you to think life is just inherently that easy and safe.
I like frozen produce because it basically eliminates my best by date anxiety
😂😂😂 SO TRUE. My parents totally bug me for buying frozen over fresh produce, but sometimes the nutritional value is higher for frozen food!! (Also cheaper haha)
what if there is a power cut?
@Martina Thompson that’s true, but honestly that hasn’t happen to be often enough to stop buying frozen produce. You gotta pick your battles right? *Shrugs*
Have you seen her video on depression? In a nutshell: “I’m not anti medication (except I am, I’d never take medication because pills are not healthy)” lol
And she’s also anti sunscreen (which she mentions in the video about depression… sigh).
hot take: sunscreen and drugs** are good actually
** Provided that they’re prescribed by a physician.
I’m not trying to be a jerk… but that def explains the premature deep lines on her face. I can’t tell how old she is but based on her overall demeanor she seems way too young to have lines like that. Skin cancer is no joke and getting tanned is so so bad for your skin! If she’s doing it for Vitamin D she can take vegan D3 supplements and wear some mineral/physical sunblock!!
@Alyssa B yes!! I work in dermatology and 80-90% of the skin’s ageing is from the SUN! Those pesky, cumulative UVA rays are the ones that destroy your collagen, suppress your immune system, age you and cause certain skin cancers. If you want to keep your skin as youthful for as long as possible, and reduce your risk of skin cancer SPF everyday!!
@Haley Out of interest how do you feel about Vitamin D from the sun? Do you recommend people only wear sunscreen in moderate and high/ultra high UV? Or just apply sunscreen to the face, neck, chest and hands during the low UV to keep it looking better? Vitamin D deficiency is more common these days due to inside careers and there is some link between neoplasm and vit D, but at this stage it’s unclear as to which way it goes (chicken or egg situation). So whether Vit D being low can cause more susceptibility to neoplasm or does the neoplasm cause low Vit D? Anyway I’m interested to hear your thoughts 😁
@Lauren Fry D3 supplements.
imagine thinking that the only reason food deserts existed was cause no one could figure out online shopping???
“And maple syrup, which is known for being an affordable sweetener” lmaooooo
@Lizz Adinaro same. I think of all the stuff I could buy for 16 bucks, that’s like 3 boxes of gardein sliders or something lol
I live in Canada and real maple syrup isn’t that cheap
@Anya B i live in canada too (toronto) and the real good-good is hella expensive
I’ve never seen cheap maple syrup other than like the fake version that’s just made with maple syrup flavouring flavouring 😂
I live in quebec, canada and we produce loads of maple syrup and it is still crazy expensive! The only cool thing is that a lot of people know someone who makes their own syrup and you can get it for free 😉
