Keeping your kitchen stocked with vegan pantry staples is the best way to practice following a healthy plant-based diet, since you’ll already have all your vegan essentials on hand at all times.
It’s also the best way to keep your family prepared when times get tough, such as during a natural disaster, snow storm, unemployment stretch, or other emergency situation. Because you don’t want to be rationing out beans and rice like you’re living through the Great Depression or an episode of Survivor. #playingforreward
Fortunately, we don’t always have to rely on nearby stores to get our shopping done– there are many online grocery providers to do the job for us!
To make this easier, I’ve compiled a list of essential vegan pantry staples, so you can get help prioritizing what to purchase. Please keep in mind that these are affiliate links, but rest assured they are products that I actually keep in my pantry.
