What are some easy things I can buy in ANY grocery store? I don’t want to always spend a lot of time on meals or doing anything fancy. What are some simple things I can buy for meals and for snacks/ingredients?
Get lots of fruits, greens and other vegetables of course! Also, all Tourky products vegan and have lots of protein! Also try Gardein products because all of their products are vegan too! Nuts, seeds, and beans are also good! Try lentils (type of bean) because they have lots of protein too!
Oh my gosh where to start. Pasta, pasta sauce, tofu, almond and soy milk, lentils almost all varities of beans, rice, tomatoes(fresh and canned) and a lot of places carry boca now. The best place to look for supermarket friendly recipes would be animal rights groups websites, like peta2(hey! You’re already there!) mercy for animals, vegan outreach and compassion over killing have fantastic recipes that are simple and cheap and are just awesome
Many grocery stores are now carrying more food options for vegans. Hummus, beans, whole grains, fruit, veggies, veggie burgers. Some also carry faux meats like Garden star and gardein. I also find silk milks everywhere, and so delicous, tofutti, and other vegan brands are becoming more popular. Also look for Amy’s frozen foods and tofu.
We’ve always got plenty of tofu, nut butters, hummus, couscous, quinoa and beans and boatloads of fruits and veggies (fresh and frozen). Our local co-op is the best…you can buy everything in bulk at supercheap prices plus you can grind your own nut butters fresh! They also have boxed couscous and quinoa mixes from Near East, Ancient Harvest, Lundberg, etc…we make a whole box and add 2 or 3 cans of beans and it lasts for days.
Oh, and So Delicious “ice cream”. Gotta have that. 🙂
