As some of you who read my blog regularly may know, I’ve been vegan/macro-biotic since last December. It’s really not that hard and I’ve been loving it and feeling great so far. This is a post I have been meaning to do for a while and after pleading from my friends and family, I sat down to finally compile my grocery lists that enable my easy, on-the-go vegan lifestyle. The following lists are compiled from what I really buy every week/month and they are totally doable by anyone chef, or non chef and wealthy, or financially challenged (like me!)… don’t be overwhelmed, just go shopping! Here is a PDF of the grocery lists so you can print and take them with you. Read below the lists for some quick and easy recipe ideas using the items from the grocery lists…
Like I said, no time to go the the farmer’s market?..then get fresh, local produce delivered to your home or office from places like Farm Fresh To You or google for your local delivery service.
And here are some things you can make with your new purchases….these are just a few suggestions but get creative and also know you can quickly make a sandwich, salad, wrap, stir-fry, pasta dish or steamed rice and veggie dish out of any/all of the savory items above and there are lots of snack, dessert and breakfast options too!
Cookware/Kitchen must haves: 1. Large pot for steaming and cooking rice, beans, pasta and soups. 2. Steamer basket 4. Frying pan and/or wok 5. Good and sharp knife. 6. Wooden spoons for stirring.
ENJOY and good luck and please let me know if you have any questions or comments!!!!!!
