Looking for a plant-based grocery list? You’re in luck, because I’ve created a basic shopping list for vegetarian eating. I hope you find this vegetarian grocery list helpful. Let me know what you’d add to it!
As a vegetarian dietitian, there's one thing I get asked about a lot: what plant-based foods to stock up on. Want to be a fly on the wall in my grocery cart? I'm about to tell you which foods are
at the top of my plant-based shopping list.
Eating plant based can mean many things. For some people, it can mean taking in just being plants and being vegan. For others, it may mean eating more plants but eating a little bit of most foods and being a flexitarian. And for people like me, it means eating a mostly plant-based diet with some animal products, like eggs and dairy. I've been a vegetarian for many, many years—and one of my main protein sources is eggs, as well as more plant-based picks like beans and tofu. These plant proteins can be helpful for plant-based weight loss!

Amy's Recipe of the
Week: Cantaloupe Banana Nice
One reason I love summer is because of all the in-season produce available at the grocery store. When I'm craving ice cream, I'll often blend up a quick, plant-based chocolate nice cream. So a nice cream version with cantaloupe tastes just like summer! I'll add other fruit, like frozen wild blueberries, to my vegetarian grocery list, for more spins on fruit ice cream.
