Eating vegan has the power to positively impact animals, our planet, and even our health.

Whether you’re just testing the waters on eating a plant-based diet, you’re a seasoned pro heading out on a big grocery run, or you’re simply shopping for someone you love who eats a vegan diet — we hope this guide is helpful.

We’ve created a comprehensive guide to vegan-friendly grocery items to consider while you’re at the store — because sometimes it’s just nice to have a full list so you can circle and cross off items. 

Use this as a resource to pick which foods you do and don’t want to put in your cart — and maybe even discover something new.
