My Vegan Pantry.

Grocery shopping can be seriously tough. I’m an impulse buyer and I tend to get excited about different vegan snack foods/ice creams that catch my eye in the store and end up splurging on a bunch of stuff that I can’t make meals with. I live with a 22-year-old man who eats A LOT because he works out so much, so my groceries need to last at least 2 weeks. I try to bulk buy whenever I can but I also try to buy things that can be used more than once (with some exceptions).

Keep in mind, you don’t have to go out and buy all of this just because I use it as my go-to list! Whatever suits you and your home is what you should do. I find planning my grocery shopping and keeping a regular list and THEN picking up new snacks here and there helps me budget better and be more prepared when stepping into a huge grocery store! I also want to quickly point out that both Vegetarians and Omni’s alike can also use this list to make their grocery shopping easier!

Below, I’ve composed a list of all the things I keep in my pantry, and hopefully this can help with new vegans or people who find grocery shopping to be a daunting task!

  1. I’m currently vegetarian, and I’m trying to cut out all animal products slowly, but I’m worried substitutes will be too expensive. I bake a lot, and nearly everything takes butter and eggs! Do you have any tips?

    1. Hey love! Thanks for commenting! The substitutes actually aren’t too bad. I use Becel Vegan Margarine with most of my baking and a tub is about 3.50 CAD and lasts quite a while. As for egg, you can actually use a variety of different things you may have in your kitchen already if you bake a lot! I personally use the Bob’s Red Mill Egg Replacer. It’s a powder that you mix with water. A large bag is 10$ and you’d actually get more out of that then you would using regular eggs. You can also make a “flax egg” with 1 tbsp of flax meal and 2.5 tbsp of water. All egg is used for is in baking is a binding agent and there are so many other options! You can also use applesauce to get that consistency as well and if you use unsweetened applesauce it won’t affect the taste. I just prefer the egg replacer as it’s easier but if you have flax meal lying around, I’d use that!

    2. I totally understand worrying about the price differences but if you take some time to look around and weight the options, you’ll see brands are creating more and more vegan alternatives and price matching! I hope I helped a bit ☺️ you can always comment if you have any other questions!
