Vegetarian Shopping List: Meatless Meals And More
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

It is time to go shopping for healthy and fresh foods. So, what is on our vegetarian shopping list today? There are plenty of dishes that we can make without needing meat at all. Even if you are a die hard carnivore or you are shopping for a group of them, it is important to know that you are still going to get the right nutrition and more importantly, great taste from your vegetarian foods.

There are some common misconceptions about vegetarians, including the fact that they cannot or do not eat dairy foods at all. Lacto-ovo vegetarians do eat dairy foods and for some, it is one of their prime sources of protein. Cheese, milk and eggs can be some of the best starting points for great recipes. So, in this section, some of the best foods that should be on your vegetarian shopping list include: organic brown eggs, fresh milk and whole milk cheeses.

You can use these vegetarian foods to slip some extra veggies into your family’s diet. Consider adding little bits of broccoli to macaroni and cheese or a little bit of grated cheese on your favorite egg dishes. Omelets and scrambled eggs are another great totally meat-free way to get additional vegetables into the home meals.

The more fruits and vegetables in the diet, the healthier the diet will be. This will be the bulk of most vegetarian diets and the longest section on the vegetarian shopping list. Opt for a number of varieties- the more colors, the better. If you cannot get your family to eat certain veggies, use them in sauces, soups or stews. You can use fruits in gelatin desserts or in smoothies. Kids are interested in trying new fruits, especially the ones that are pretty or really exotic. But, don’t forget that kids really like ugly stuff too- look at the lowly kiwi, after all.

Another major part of the vegetarian shopping list is in the section where the grains are. Whole wheat breads, beans and rice of every kind are a staple in the vegetarian diet. If you are worried about your health with the vegetarian diet, remember that people have lived on grains and veggies for centuries. Rice is another of the great sources of protein and can be used in a number of ways- there are no limits to the foods you can make just from this section of the vegetarian shopping list.

Yes, we are all busy and sometimes there doesn’t seem to be enough time to even eat, let alone to actually cook a meal. You can add frozen meals on your vegetarian shopping list as long as you choose carefully. Remember, there are some foods that might seem vegetarian when there really is meat involved.
