Essential Grocery List

In the beginning, we had no idea what to buy in the grocery store. Now we have the beginnings of a comprehensive list of what are, for us, essentials. I thought sharing my list from 5 weeks in might help you with yours. But remember, the plan you end up with is as unique as you are. Buy foods you're already comfortable with, make recipes you're already used to, and begin learning how to make substitutions for the meat and dairy.


We need to have plant-based milk products on hand for a lot of recipes and some kinds are better here, and others better there. You'll only know by trying them. There are a lot of varieties of non-dairy milks including almond milk, coconut milk, soy milk, and oat milk, which I love.
