Be Vegan For A Month    
  • Day 1: Get Some Vegan Grub
  • Daily Nugget (just a little something to chew on today): “No one is in control of your happiness but you; therefore, you have the power to change anything about yourself or your life that you want to change.” —Barbara de Angelis

    Your shopping cart will start to look a lot different now!

    Did you wake up in the middle of the night wondering, “what in the world am I going to eat for the next month!?!” Fear not, dear newly vegan friends: we will never let you go hungry! On day one, get your tushy over to the grocery store or anywhere else you like to do your food shopping. It’s time to quell those “I can’t eat anything” fears once and for all.

    Our first task is pretty darn obvious: fill your fridge with some vegan-friendly food.

    These foods should keep you going for a least a week:

    • greens: kale, broccoli, spinach
    • three frozen meals – try Amy’s Organics
    • a couple of cans of beans
    • garbanzo (chick peas)
    • black beans
    • pinto beans
    • cannellini beans
    • salad fixins
    • romaine, spinach, mixed greens
    • vegan salad dressing
    • carrots, celery, radishes, sprouts, tomatoes
    • avocados
    • apples
    • hummus
    • grains
    • brown rice
    • quinoa
    • bread – preferably whole wheat, spelt, multi-grain, etc.
    • tofu (also in the refrigerated aisle, sold in a block)
    • frozen veggie burgers/patties or vegan bean burritos
    • chik’n strips or Field Roast sausages (whichever you’re more likely to use)
    • Lightlife Smart Deli Slices or Tofurky Deli Slices
    • Vegenaise (mayonnaise)
    • soy, coconut milk or almond milk yogurt
    • vegan cheese, such as Daiya (be mindful if a non-dairy cheese lists “casein” as an ingredient; that means it’s not vegan)
    • almond milk, rice milk, coconut milk drink or other non-dairy beverage
    • soy or coconut milk creamer if you’re a coffee or tea drinker
    • Earth Balance Natural Spread (i.e. vegan butter)
    • Ener-G Egg Replacer
    • Flax meal
    • Unsweetened Apple Sauce

    Try a bunch of brands and flavors, knowing that almond milk or cherry yogurt by one company will taste quite different from almond milk or cherry yogurt by another company.

    There you go. You’re on the road to better health and animal luuuv. Don’t be alarmed when this stuff looks different than your normal grocery haul. And hey, tofu isn’t nearly as expensive as most meats, so you’ll likely saved a few bucks. Cha-ching!
