When you transition to a vegan diet, stocking your kitchen for the first time can seem overwhelming and expensive. Let’s make it a little bit easier!
In the video below, I go through a list of the essentials in my kitchen, and I’d love to hear what pantry and freezer staples you couldn’t feed your family without. If you have essentials that aren’t vegan, and you’d like to find an alternative or equivalent that’s in line with a vegan diet, don’t be shy! I’m here to help, not to judge.
When I’m not working here or over at Crafting a Green World, I develop recipes and craft projects for my personal site: Glue and Glitter. I occasionally share my recipes in this space as part of recipe roundups (like this one!), but for the most part I kind of keep Eat Drink Better and Glue and Glitter separate. Unlike this space, Glue and Glitter is a 100% vegan site, and my focus there is more on showing how a vegan diet can be easy and fun, rather than healthy and sustainable. I am a big fan of that kind of outreach, and I’ve even had some omnivore readers tell me that they have started eating more vegan and vegetarian food since they started following me over there. Yay!
I’m making an exception with this video for a few reasons, but the main reason is that I think it’s very much in line with what we talk about here at Eat Drink Better: stocking your kitchen with healthy food, so you can feel good about what you’re feeding your family, whether you eat a vegan diet or not.
The video below is the first one I’ve created from scratch since graduating college. It’s a little bit rough, but for a first go, I’m really happy with it. It’s all about stocking your vegan kitchen, so that you can throw together cheap, easy meals. I hope that you like it!
