Where Can You Buy Vegan Food On A Budget

Being doesn’t have to be complicated. There is a plethora of supermarkets across America that carry a wide variety of plant-based Vegan food items that are tasty and affordable. Whole foods aren’t the only place out there!

1. Sprouts

At Sprouts, they have a variety of foods to choose from not to mention their all-natural aisle of supplements. I have to admit that they are on the more pricey side. However, the selection of foods that they do have is superb. 

Here I like to shop for:

  • Protein
  • Vegan Sausage Patties
  • Pasta
  • Vegetable Broth 
  • Supplements from MRM
  • Nutritional Yeast 
  • Vegetables 
  • Ice Cream 
  • Choclate

2. Natural Grocers

Natural Grocers. I didn’t know about this place until I moved to Colorado. It reminds me of Sprouts but is smaller and supports local farmers. They also have the same supplements that you might find at Sprouts or Thrive Market. 

Here I like to shop for:

  • Teas
  • Some Veggies
  • Plant-based milk
  • Bread 
  • Bulk items

3. Lassens

Lassens is definitely a California store. They have lots of vegan food to choose from as well as clean and cruelty-free products. They have a deli inside where they have amazing sandwiches, and smoothies and they have a salad bar where you can also pour yourself a cup of soup.

You can shop online only if you live in the area.

I honestly just go for the salad bar and kombucha. 

Thrive Market is great! Not only can shop online on their app but you can also have a membership that can save you time and money.

Here I like to shop for:

  • Random things that i find interesting to try out
  • Snacks
  • Pasta
  • Bath and Body stuff

5. Trader Joes

I’m almost certain that you have never heard of Trader Joe’s. I’m only kidding, of course, you’ve heard of Trader Joe’s they’re only everywhere. I love the ever-changing selections that they have going on. 

You can ask for a paper with all their vegan foods, at the very high desk where you can see the VIP heads. For all the shy people, I believe they have it on the desk so you can just take one.

Check out their list online too

Here I like to shop for:

  • Tofo 
  • Soyrizo
  • Veggies
  • Meatless meat
  • Patsa 
  • Sauces
  • Frozen foods 
  • Frozen Berries

GTFO It’s Vegan. Another great place to shop online. This place has a variety of vegan foods that you might not find elsewhere. 

Here I like to shop for:

  • Vegan Meats 
  • Plant-Based Ramen
  • Vegan Cheese

Of course, there are your local corporate supermarkets that carry several vegan foods. However, supporting those who are actually striving to make a difference and try to prioritize vegan essential foods will make it easier for us, in the long run, to make better choices and also help them grow to other locations.
