6 Vegan An Vegetarian Alternatives For Beginners

Food shopping when trying to be become vegetarian can be overwhelming. I remember my first food shopping trip I got a ton of things I really didn't need. Thats why my trial and error is great for anyone starting off. This list is some of my favorite staples I have used. I hope this makes your journey into living plant based easier for you.

Morning star maple sausage patties

A great alternative you can use for breakfast or you can even chop it up and put it in your gravy for pasta.

Gardein quinoa breaded nuggets

I loved chicken nuggets as a kid. I have gone through many nugget alternatives so I was so happy when I finally found one I liked. I have friends who eat regular nuggets and couldn't tell the difference.


Tofu is a staple in my diet. I pair it with everything and you can sauté it however you want. It is so versatile. Pair it with some stir fry trust me its delicious.

Beyond meat burgers

These burgers are delicious. They are my staple during the summer. My family will sometimes choose these burgers over regular ones, thats how good they are.

Tofurkey deli slices

Going vegetarian doesn't mean meals cant be quick. Tofurkey deli slices are a great alternative to ham and for quick lunch sandwiches. it contains a lot of protein and still taste good.

Morning star corn dogs

I live a pretty much plant based life. But finding alternatives to childhood favorite foods is my favorite thing. Corn dogs bring me back to fairs and amusement parks. They have regular ones and mini corn dogs. How cute is that. If you are looking for a treat these are great.

There are so many great alternatives I haven't listed. My favorite brands are Morning Star, Gardein, Quorn, Boca, and Beyond Meat. I would try it out regardless if your vegetarian or not. This could be a great start to meatless Mondays.
