Lets get down in the weeds here.
Roaming the aisles of the grocery store may be relaxing for omnivorous foodies, but for those transitioning to a vegan lifestyle – an expansive array of unvetted fridge, freezer and pantry items can be anything but.
With the nature of the plant-based diet being largely exclusive of many common household staples, I set out to clear the confusion and provide a single printable resource to help both long-time vegans and those new to the plant-based movement navigate the madness: the Ultimate Vegan Grocery List.
While the vegan diet, by definition, omits all animal products - it doesn’t imply that those looking to pursue this lifestyle for health, environmental or ethical reasons have to subside on grass clippings and rice cakes.
We know, as positioned in a statement by the Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics, a well-planned vegan diet is healthful, nutritionally adequate, and suitable for all life-stages. That’s why I’ve decided to combine the broad selection of vegan products available on the market with my knowledge and expertise on plant-based nutrition to compile a list of plant-powered staples with your nutrient needs, satiety and satisfaction in mind.
