This week’s shopping list is all about my favorite vegan kitchen staples. These are products that I literally cannot do without.
This raw parmesan cheeze is my favorite topping on salad, popcorn, veggies, and anything else you can imagine. It’s made with nutritional yeast and nuts, and it lasts forever. $4.50 at Cosmo’s.
Mori-Nu’s Firm Silken Tofu is my favorite brand to use, mainly because it can be stored outside of the refridgerator, making it dorm-friendly. I like to stock up on it in case I want to make a “chicken” salad for lunch. $2.29 at Pangea.
Ener-G Egg Replacer is a godsend for many vegans. I’d be pretty damn lost without it. $6.79 at Pangea.
Tofutti makes my favorite vegan cheese (for now anyway, lol). It melts and tastes great on a sandwich or by itself. Mozzarella is my favorite of the two. $3.69 at Cosmo’s.
Goji berries are simply amazing. I’ve written before about their benefits, and I recommend them to anyone who wants to get in on the whole superfood thing. They’re a little expensive, but a just a little handful goes a long way. I eat them in my oatmeal/musli, you can mix them into a smoothie, or just eat them straight out of the package. $8.99 at Pangea.
Vegenaise is without a doubt the best vegan mayo. I usually tend to buy the grapeseed oil variety. One of the stranger things I do with mayo is dip french fries in it. I’m sure I’m not the only one who eats this, but I get some strange looks sometimes. $5.39 at Pangea.
I use Dijon Nayonaise for sandwhiches and potato salad. Sure, you could make it yourself using dijon mustard and Veganaise, but this is just easier. $4.39 at Vegan Essentials.
Have any of you got any food products you absolutely cannot live without? Share in the comments.

That vegan parmesan sounds like an awesome alternative to straight nutritional yeast (which is getting a little old!). I’ll definitely have to look for that at the store next time — thanks! 🙂
