3 Essential Vegan Items for your Pantry

One of the most exciting things about living a plant-based, vegan lifestyle is that there are so many colorful, delicious foods and recipes to play around with. Before you do so, it is very important to make sure you are stocked up on the proper food items, however, whether you are vegan or not, you know that deciding on what to get for your pantry isn’t always the easiest task.

Whether you have been a vegan for a while or are considering becoming one in the future, here are three essential and versatile vegan items that you must have in your pantry:

Beans

What is so great about beans is that they are an excellent source of plant-based protein and there are so many kinds to choose from! Whether you stock up on black beans, kidney beans, butter beans or pinto beans, there is always something you can create with them. They are easy to prepare and are extremely nourishing to your body. Just simply add beans to rice, throw in a few vegetables and you’ll have yourself a comforting meal.

Quinoa

PETA refers to quinoa as a “superfood” and they are exactly right! Not only is quinoa another great source of protein, it is packed with so many nutrients like calcium and iron that our body needs to maintain solid health.

The list for vegan essentials can go on and on, however, these three items are great to have because they can be used in countless ways. What are some of your vegan pantry essentials? Let us know!

Yoga, meditation and plant based eating are key ingredients in my self-love practice.

I wasn’t always the yogi you see on social media. When I first started yoga, I couldn’t even touch my toes! It started in college, when I injured myself from running track and field. Before my injury, I pushed myself to work as hard as I possibly could to be the best on the field. I would push myself past my body’s limits, but when I got injured, my body forced me to slow down. It was really hard for me to do that at first – I didn’t know life without track and field. A school counselor recommended I try yoga, and that’s how I started my yogic journey…
