Vegan Groceries Guide - How To Shop For Veganuary

Veganuary is almost upon us, which means that it’s almost time to create meal plans, get some cooking inspiration, and head out to the supermarket! Filling your kitchen cupboards and fridge with a range of ingredients will make your Veganuary a much easier affair as you’ll have lots of choice and plenty to work with. I’d also recommend making a plan for the meals that you intend to cook throughout the week, as this will help you to avoid overspending and you’ll likely waste less.

This article covers a few helpful ideas of products and ingredients you might like to purchase throughout Veganuary. Hopefully, it should also show you that a vegan diet can be incredibly varied and not limited whatsoever.
Of course, you don’t have to add everything below to your list, but it will likely start you off on the right foot with planning your shopping. Good luck with Veganuary! 

Veggies, Fruit & Legumes

Chances are, you've already got fruits, vegetables, and legumes covered on your regular shopping list. However, you're going to be consuming more than usual when you're following a vegan diet. Legumes are important as they will make up the bulk of your protein intake, but, vegetables such as broccoli and asparagus offer a surprising amount of protein as well.

Plant-Based Meat & Seafood

If you find the idea of giving up meat cold-turkey daunting, then you should check out all of the plant-based alternatives on the market. There are lots to choose from, from succulent burgers to beautifully-seasoned chicken strips.

Cheese

Like with dairy cheese, vegan cheeses are hugely varied; there are so many types and brands to choose from! You've got the artisan cheeses made from cashews or cheeses that melt incredibly like Applewood's Smoky Vegan.

Milk, Yogurts & Creams

Coffee and tea drinkers, listen up! Finding the perfect plant milk or cream might take you a few tries, but it’s all worth it in the end. Different plant milks have different strengths; for example, oat milk is incredible for coffees. Dairy-alternatives have come a long way in the past few years due to the spike in people ditching dairy, so you shouldn’t have difficulty finding your new favourite products.

Vegan Butter & Spreads

Vegan butter and spreads will potentially be the most straightforward swaps that you’ll make for the month of Veganuary. Many nut butters are already vegan and dairy-free butters are just as delicious as those with dairy. You may find that certain vegan butters are ideal for baking whereas some will be better for indulgent pasta sauces instead!

Cooking & Baking

Vegan cooking and baking are just as easy as non-vegan cooking and baking. Don’t let differing ingredients confuse you; helpful advice is just a quick Internet search away! The more you practice, the better you’ll get. Baking might seem strange at first because eggs and dairy often seem like the most crucial components, but never fear, egg alternatives and plant milks are to the rescue.

Ready Meals

We all occasionally need a little help from ready meals, and that’s totally fine! Fortunately, vegans have plenty of choices when it comes to convenience foods these days. 

Chocolate & Snacks

Going vegan doesn’t mean that you have to give up the sweeter things in life. Not only can you bake and whip up your own delicious sweet treats, but there are also tonnes of incredible brands and products to choose from.
