Vegetarian Shopping List + Menu

Sometimes, it's difficult for some people to know where to begin when switching to a vegetarian lifestyle. Initial grocery shopping can be difficult for the converted veggie as well, so I just thought I should share some of the staples that I like to keep around, in the fridge, freezer and cupboard...


- Garbanzo beans/chickpeas (they're the same thing... and have lotsa proteeeein!)
- Black beans (proteeein!)
- Pitted dates (fibreeee!)
- Unsalted tortilla chips (Que Pasa is my fave)
- Cumin
- Oregano
- Curry powder
- Wasabi powder
- Rosemary
- Cayenne
- Dill
- Balsamic Glaze (Blaze is the good stuff)
- Gnocchi pasta
- Cocoa powder
- Agave
- Bananas
- Avocado (healthy fats!)
