Trader Joe's Vegan Grocery List

Trader Joe’s Grocery List for Vegans

If you’ve never taken a look at the Trader Joe’s Vegan Product list, you probably should! This is one of the first things I searched for when I started my vegan journey. I was astounded by how well Trader Joe’s caters to vegans – may be one reason why I am obsessed with this place!!

They have a TON of options in all departments, making it pretty tough to choose. I have to admit, it is SO hard to not buy everything all at once. To stay within budget, Joe and I will only try 2 or 3 new things per week. Spacing it out doesn’t break the bank, and it allows us to try and test everything. Some items we pass on, and some items become regulars. It all balances out!

I thought it might be fun to share a list of my favorite Trader Joe’s staples. Keep in mind, this is a long list! We don’t buy all of these items weekly, of course. These are just some of our favorites.
