Whether you are new to a plant-based diet or if you are already vegan, challenge yourself to go whole food plant-based, integrating fruits, vegetables, legumes, whole grains, and cutting out processed foods! Following a plant based diet doesn't have to be complicated and I hope this list will make it easier when you do your grocery shopping.
Foods to avoid when following a Whole Food Plant Based diet
*Refined carbohydrates including white rice and bread, crackers, cookies, cakes, and muffins made with white flour
*Limit added Oils and eliminate ALL processed foods
*ALL animal products
*Meat, Poultry and fish
*Dairy Products and eggs
To put together your weekly grocery list, I’d suggest taking some time at the start of the week and making a meal plan for the week.
This is not a diet plan however if you are looking for a healthy and sustainable way to achieve weightloss then this way of eating works.
