I am not a vegan by any means, really if I were to prescribe to a style of eating I would consider myself a plant based paleo eater, but reality I just do my best every day to make good choices when it comes to food for my body and my activity levels. But I digress, I have recently been working with a lot of individuals who are interested in transitioning to a more plant based life and some wanting to shift as far as to cut out all animal and animal by-products from their lives.
While assisting them making this shift there always seems to be a few road blocks. The road blocks are typically not what you would think, they aren’t center around food specifically, it isn’t that they are having difficulty finding ingredients, or finding it difficult to say get enough protein in their diet, the blockages end up originating in their kitchens. Which has lead me to develop this post help individuals who are getting more serious about upping their plant food game or are just looking to round out their kitchen items.
Now, this list is in no way exhaustive, and you can for sure be a vegan, vegetarian, paleo, keto, omnivore, or whatever type of eater you want to be without some of these tools, but they will 100% make your life so much easier.
Remember, just because this article is focused on building a vegan kitchen doesn't mean that these items wouldn't be a welcome adiditon to any kitchen, so if you are getting your hands dirty more and focusing on that meal prep life consider adding some of these tools to give you a helping hand in the kitchen.
