So, for those of you who live in an area where vegan foods are hard to come by, here are some staples that your local store *should* carry. If my store carries them, then I bet your store will too.
|1. Boca Vegan Burgers - Probably the easiest |
vegan veggie burger to find out there.
|2. Smart Deli (by Light Life) Vegan cold cuts - |
These come in ham, bologna, turkey, etc. My favorite is ham because it tastes
the least fake plus if you fry it in oil it tastes like Canadian bacon!!!
|3. Silk Soymilk - Best. Soy. Milk. Ever. Creamy, most |
realistic taste, and wind-powered. Silk also makes soy yogurt, which is
available at most grocery stores (but not mine).
|4. Tofutti Ice Cream Tubs- It may be hard to find other |
Tofutti products, but most stores carry the tubs at least. They come in
a variety of flavors, including vanilla, chocolate, and "better"
|5. Bolthouse Farms Beverages - Green Goddess and the |
fruit/veg blends are packed with nutrients, and the Vanilla Chai is a great
|6. World Classics Panko Breadcrumbs - Vegan breadcrumbs |
are hard to come by since most brands include whey. This brand's pank breadcrumbs
are vegan and all-natural. 4C also carries a vegan variety.
|7. Top Ramen, Oriental Flavor - Okay, so not the healthiest, |
but these are good for a quick meal (they are high in protein, as well as
fat and sodium). Make sure you get the Top Ramen brand, Maruchan uses beef
in their Oriental flavor.
|8. Vermont Bread Company Whole Wheat Sourdough Bread |
- Again, many breads contain whey and/or honey, especially healthy whole
wheat varieties. This bread is my absolute favorite, its whole wheat AND
sourdough! Can it get much better? Ezekial also carries vegan whole wheat
|9. Simply Asia Noodle Bowls - These come in a variety |
of flavors, and taste delicious.
|10. Morningstar Farms Hickory BBQ Riblets - Best rib |
replacement that I have found yet, the sauce is absolutely fantastic!
