My Ultimate Guide To Veganism – Pt 1

With Veganuary well underway and the new year being about a “new you” I thought I would put this guide together to help new vegans or those looking to transition to veganism. Even existing vegans could find this helpful too. 🙂

All of these have helped me so much on my vegan journey and I want to pass all the knowledge I’ve gained on to you.

For part one I’m gonna share a lot of helpful online resources and books etc and part 2 will move on to ingredients and brands – food specific stuff.

Online Stores

 

Supermarkets

  • The Coop – My local and most visited supermarket. They have a great range of clearly marked ready meals and lunch items. Lots of other great name brand products including soups, coconut milk and water.
  • Ocado – a vegan paradise in my opinion. They have a lot of stuff that’s exclusive to them, great vegan brands (well-known and small).
  • Tesco – Rated #1 vegan supermarket last year. Have huge free from selection inc own brand cheese and meat subs
  • Sainsbury’s – They’ve done pretty well with their vegan offerings and have a cheese line like Tesco. They’ve also just launched a new vegan range this month.
  • Lidl – You can find some great vegan finds here, most accidental. Churros anyone?
  • Aldi – New vegan range launching with cheese and meats. They already have some great accidental stuff in their arsenal.
