Vegan Grocery Shopping List: Cheap Plant Based eats
I do my grocery shopping on the Weekends, and I know a lot of other people do too so today I am sharing my Vegan grocery store staples. All of the foods that I buy are super affordable and perfect for large families, students, busy working adults, etc. I did do a post a similar post a while ago before I adopted a Vegan diet of my non-Vegan Grocery Store Must Haves so if you are not Vegan, check that one out too!
If you know me, you know that I am all about saving money. I use coupons for everything, shop the clearance racks, and am always on the hunt for a good deal. I generally spend about $30-35 a week on groceries for just myself which averages out to only about $5 a day. If you are wanting to cut back on your grocery bill, I highly suggest adding more cheap plant-based foods into your diet!
These are the foods that I eat to save money and stay healthy:
Bananas (bananas are one of the cheapest fruits and are in season year round!)
Apples (again, always pretty cheap)
Pears- Bosc variety are my favorite
Melon – I load up on watermelon and cantaloupe over the summer!
Berries- strawberries, raspberries, blueberries
Snap Peas/ Pea Pods
Corn on the Cob
Squash- Spaghetti squash, acorn squash, yellow/summer squash, kombucha
Beans- black, garbanzo, kidney
Gluten Free noodles- edamame, brown rice, or quinoa noodles
Gluten Free Oats
Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
Healthy Jarred Pasta Sauce – I like 365 brand from Whole Foods
Brown Rice Cakes
Vegan Protein Powder- Vega, Sunwarrior, Garden of Life Raw
Unsweetened almond milk
Dairy Free Coffee Creamer- Califia Farms is my fav
Frozen fruit- bananas, berries, mango
Frozen veggies- corn, broccoli, edamame, stir-fry veggies, etc.
Unsweetened Fruit Preserves
Hummus- Cedar’s Brand is my fav 🙂
Avocado (which apparently you aren’t supposed to keep in the fridge)
I don’t always have all of this food stocked, but these are the staples in my diet. I love fruits and vegetables so I always buy what is in season and on sale. I hope this is helpful for those of you looking to adopt more of a plant-based/vegan diet. If you focus on eating foods that are in season and buying cheap grains and starches, you can save tons of money on your grocery bill each week. I spend a lot less overall now since I do not buy any meat/ dairy products which used to be the most expensive part of my grocery bill.
What are some of your must-have foods each week??? I definitely need to have my oats, bananas, apples, and carrots each week.
