I agree that a diet heavy in veg is very healthy. My parents are macrobiotic (no dairy, no meat - just grains, veg, and fish) and they are in their 70's with no health issues. I eat TONS of veg and make it a priority. Partly because I just like them - partly because I think it's better for you - and partly because my diet tends to skew South Asian, which is veg-heavy.

I don't find it's a lot more expensive if you offset it by eating less meat (I do), but it certainly can be, depending on where you buy food and what else you eat. Either way though, it's good in the overall picture.
