Safeway: Healthy Vegan Grocery Haul

Many people that I've met tell me how it's hard to be vegan - it's too expensive & they can't afford to shop at Whole Foods or Trader Joe's. Well, fortunately for all of us, veganism is becoming more "normal" (because eating rotting corpses, bird periods, bee vomit, & bovine secretions clearly is normal) so you can get healthy, affordable vegan food everywhere!


I shop quite a bit at Safeway so as an experiment, I did a grocery haul just to show you how easy it is to find healthy vegan options. However, I would like to add a few disclaimers:

1. You don't need to eat "faux" anything to thrive on a vegan diet. If you stick with healthy grains, veggies, fruit, tofu, & beans, not only is it super healthy, but really light on the wallet! I obviously did not purchase every explicitly vegan option available - there were plenty, believe me! I bought my groceries based on what we would eat that week.

2. This is not how I normally eat! I eat a Tone It Up-style diet due to health reasons, but I'm conducting 2 experiments (one which I will talk about later) which is why I was a bit less restrictive with my choices.

3. You don't have to purchase anything organic. Though it's better for the planet & your health, you most certainly can purchase from conventional brands. I didn't buy everything organic - I tried to balance my own preferences while showing you how easy it is to eat vegan.
