Just want to know how to buy groceries? Here's a downloadable shopping list for you!

FOOD

Things you want to keep in the kitchen at all times: Protein, Carbs, Fat, Flavor, and Fun! This shopping list left out the 'fun' part, so I'm going to help you out:

Easy grocery finds that are accidentally vegan (mostly junk food...but hey, we gotta have some fun, right?)

Vegan fast food list; my article in USA Today on vegan drive-thrus

"Gardein" is a 100% vegan food line that makes burgers, fish sticks, crab cakes, wings, sliders, meatballs, chicken...you name it. Almost all Kroger stores carry at least some Gardein products; here is a 'Where to Buy Gardein' locator link for you.

CHEESE & DAIRY

Can't give up cheese? Me neither. Fortunately, we non-dairy folks have tangy, stringy options!

Miyoko's Kitchen is my personal favorite. I am in love with her rich, smoky flavors and textures! Two flavors of this cheese, Smoked Farmhouse Cheddar and Sun-Dried Tomato, are available at Sunspot in Lafayette, IN. Call (765) 464-1555 to check if it's in stock. If not, request it! It's soooo worth it. 

Daiya is a popular brand. It's more affordable and widely available than Miyokos. I love their pizzas and Mac & Cheese!
