If you remove all animal products from your fridge and pantry what will you have left to eat?!
Use the list below as a blueprint shopping list and whipping up the most nutritious and filling plant based meals and snacks will be a breeze!
When you are at the grocery store make it easy for yourself by simply avoiding anything too processed. If the ingredient list is long and difficult to read simply put it back!
Fruit & Vege
Aim for seasonal produce if possible but generally some year round basics are:
Leafy salad greens (e.g baby spinach)
Capsicum (Bell Peppers)
Milk Alternative (eg Soy, Almond, Coconut or Oat)
Tempeh (Fermented soybean block) or Tofu
Pasta & Grains
Polenta (Ground Corn)
Oats (whole, steel cut or rolled)
Nut Butter (eg Peanut or Almond Butter)
Tahini (Hulled Sesame Seed Paste)
Apple Cider Vinegar
Nutritional Yeast (NOT baking yeast!)
Nuts, Seeds & Dried Fruit
Herbs & Spices
Raw Cacao Powder
It can be difficult to find a suitable bread, (watch out for milk solids), so instead we make our own bread. If you are keen to do this as well, buy Baking Yeast instead of a loaf as all the other ingredients to make your own are already in this list.
Optional Extras (Not completely Plant Based ‘compliant’ but does make life easier in some instances, only for use in moderation)
