The Simple Vegan Shopping List

This week, we thought we would supply you with a simple vegan shopping list because when you first decide to transform your lifestyle and become vegan going to the grocery store can seem like a daunting task. Where do you start? How do you keep your vegan diet diverse? It can be an overwhelming task that leads you to make bad decisions – like eating spaghetti every night.

Avoid boring vegan meals and enhance your vegan diet by following our easy to use checklist! Fill your fridge and pantry with delicious, healthy vegan meal options. Once you follow this checklist, you’ll have trouble deciding which vegan delicacy to make first!

For the Pantry:

  • Stevia
  • 100% organic maple syrup
  • Nuts, Seeds and Dried fruit
  • Lentils
  • Beans (all kinds)
  • Quinoa
  • Chick Peas
  • Oatmeal
  • Black Eyed Peas
  • Peanut Butter
  • Nutritional Yeast
  • Brown Rice
  • Farro
  • Apple Cider Vinegar

  • Seasonings: Ginger, Garlic, Onion Powder, oregano, basil, rosemary, sriracha, cumin, and any other seasoning you love. Trust me – you’ll use them.
  • Pasta and Noodles

For the Fridge and Freezer:

  • Almond Milk or any other vegan milk substitute
  • Earth Balance vegan butter
  • Vegan Cheese – everyone has a different preference, but I prefer Chao brand cheeses
  • Meat Substitutes – there are a ton to choose from. Recently I tried a Beyond Meat burger, and it was delicious. Gardein is also a great brand, and they make chicken and beef cutlets.
  • Vegan Mayo
  • Non-GMO Ketchup
  • Vegetables and fruits – try to buy fresh over frozen. You’ll get more nutrients from fresh fruits and vegetables.
  • Tofu
