Vegan Awareness Month - We're Vegan-Friendly!
November is Vegan Awareness Month and we thought we'd celebrate
with an Easy Meal Idea video and a quick guide to our vegan
friendly products. Practicing vegans abstain from consuming food
with animal products, but as you'll see below, that does not
exclude them from enjoying tasty, nutrient-filled meals!
While red meat, poultry, and seafood are the obvious kinds of
animal-based products that are not a part of the vegan diet, diary
and eggs are other food groups vegans avoid. While it can sound
like this excludes an awful lot of food options, we wanted to show
you that Fresh & Easy carries many vegan-friendly items that
everyone can enjoy!
While vegans abstain from dairy, they can enjoy plant-milks such
as almond milk, coconut milk & soy milk. We carry all of these
at Fresh & Easy:
Our hummus, salsa and butternut squash soup make great side
dishes that are completely free from animal products.
And last but not least, soy, wheat and pea proteins in
addition to vegetables and grains is a staple in vegan meat
substitutes. From "bbq shreds" to "chickin" (faux chicken), you can
find many protein packed options in our produce aisle. With so many
nutritional upsides, they are all great items no matter if you're
vegan, vegetarian or a meat-lover. For a complete list
of our vegetarian and vegan items please visit our
In addition to it being Vegan Awareness Month, we thought that
in the midst of holiday prepping, even meat eaters would enjoy a
break from the usual steak & potatoes and try a quick and
delicious all-vegan meal before its Turkey or "Tofurkey" time next
week. Below Chef Cyndi shows how easy it can be to make a complete
vegan meal with only 3 items.
