the pantry

Switching to a plant based diet means you're going to drop a lot of ingredients. But it also means you're going to discover brand new ones too! Nearly all vegan recipes use similar ingredients and flavours, so making sure you get what's in your pantry right will make everything a whole lot easier.

Here is a list of staples that you should make sure you always have available. All of them can be found at your local supermarket (you just might have to look in the weird aisle no ever goes to to find them!) and are super cheap! You might not think you'll need them but I guarantee you'll be using some of them everyday!
