What is in my Freezer: Shopping List

P1150348

Frozen food is not something I would want to be eating everyday but it certainly comes in handy on days where you need something fast! Here is my freezer grocery list! I like to have these items in my freezer at all times! It can be hard establishing what food staples you should have in your vegan freezer and I hope this helps you out 🙂

  • Fruit (usually raspberries, blueberries, mango and bananas)
  • Veggie burgers
  • Waffles
  • Fries
  • Hash brown patties
  • Chopped zucchini, squash, onions
  • Baked potatoes (perfect for quick mash potatoes etc)
  • Corn
  • Edamame
  • Gluten-free bread (Sandwich and french bread)
  • Falafels
  • Quinoa meatballs
  • Vegan ice cream (of course)

I know it is a pretty short list, but I prefer cooking most meals fresh! I use veggie burgers weekly and definitely the pints of ice cream daily!

What’s on our grocery list

Grocery shopping while making the transition to becoming vegan or being gluten-free can be really tough. There are many alternatives now to bread, meat and cheese but I thought it could be helpful to see what is on our grocery list. We mostly buy produce with a few necessities from other aisles, of course this list is not for everyone but it is what has been working for us for many months. We buy all that we can at Trader Joes (I make sure to buy organic) and the rest I buy from Whole Foods. It is actually not very expensive and makes yummy food! Yippee!
