My weekly shop on a plant-based diet

Switching to a vegetarian/vegan or plant-based diet can seem daunting but supermarkets that are available to everyone have really stepped up the game.

 

I always write a list before I go to the supermarket otherwise I go crazy and want everything!

TIPDon’t go to the shop hungry, you’ll want all the wrong things 🙂 

I make a list of what meals I want for the week and then the things I need if they are not already in my cupboards. I often have leftovers for lunches so I don’t need to make separate things. Making meals for one can be difficult without making way too much so it’s a win-win really, no waste and easy lunches.

 

This week I am making;

  • Veggie Curry
  • Veggie Bolognese and spaghetti
  • Stuffed peppers with quinoa and beans
  • Spicey fried rice
  • Cheeky frozen Pizza
  • Mac and Cheese
  • Soup

I do try and get as many things that aren’t wrapped in plastic but supermarkets do make it hard. I have used markets and no package shops but this week I went for convenience and tried my best. 

Every week is different and sometimes more than others. This week I clearly ran out of milk… haha!

So I will be posting some of this week’s recipes on here for you guys to have a little look at 🙂

Let me know which meal sounds most exciting to you?
