Guide to a Vegetarian Diet

Whether you’re thinking of going vegetarian or are already eating that way, you’ve come to the right place. From wide assortment of fresh produce to plant-based proteins, find the resources you need here to shop our aisles and stock your kitchen.

What is a vegetarian-friendly diet?

A vegetarian diet typically omits meat, poultry and fish. However, some vary in which foods are included or excluded. For example, some include dairy, eggs and cheeses made with vegetarian rennet, while others don’t. All nourishing vegetarian diets start with fresh produce, whole grains, beans, nuts and seeds.

Whether you’re shopping for vegetarian substitutes like plant-based meats or quick meal solutions like jerky and Bulletproof Coffee, fill your basket with these items:
