Shop Vegan With Us!

Updated: Mar 15, 2019

Congratulations on starting your vegan journey!

Finding the most comfortable and convenient places to shop for your new vegan kitchen is important for your new diet. We are bringing you along on our vegan shopping trip filled with some products we purchased as well as some unique recipe ideas to try!

If you’re a long-term vegan and looking for some variety in your routine or if you’re a non-vegan curious about how an entirely plant-based kitchen look like, we have you covered.

We visited a local Trader Joe’s.

Trader Joe’s is a great grocery store to start off your vegan kitchen. The prices are reasonable and has identified its vegan products to be free of all animal and/or by products. They frequently surprise shoppers with new delicious products so you will never grow tired of your vegan diet.

For today’s shopping, we started off with some essentials for a balanced vegan diet, fruits and vegetables!

Next, we shopped for our lunch meal----vegan butternut squash tacos!

Here are the ingredients:

- 2 cup cubed butternut squash

-1 cup black beans

-1/3 taco mix seasoning (or 1 teaspoon cumin, cayenne, and paprika)

-4 corn tortillas

-1/3 avocado

-1/2 lime

-salsa (optional)

For dinner, we bought the products for some tasty zucchini pasta!

Here are the ingredients:


-2 large zucchini

-10 oz cherry tomatoes cut in half

-1 tablespoon olive oil

-4 garlic gloves, minced

-salt and pepper for taste

We made our own pasta sauce:

-1 teaspoon vegetable oil

-1/2 small yellow onion, diced

-2 cloves of garlic, minced

-5 large tomatoes

-1 teaspoon dried basil leaves

-1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

-1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Some of the items we bought for our dinner meal are also used for our homemade pasta sauce (a tip to save some money!)

When you go grocery shopping, it is ideal that you make a list and a budget. This is different for every household so its essential to plan accordingly. Try to find deals and sales on products to help you save some extra money because remember, veganism does not have to be expensive!
