    Hi Lauren,
    First off, thanks so much for your blog, I stumbled upon it while searching for vegan recipes, and am absorbed. May I please ask where certain items on the “grocery list” have been crossed out? In particular, soy products, which I consume on a regular basis. Thank you!

      The soy products have been crossed out because I do not recommend eating them. I actually have written a whole article on soy, which will be helpful in answering your question further. You can find it HERE.

    I love all the foods you listed and agree with all just agave. Agave is high fructose sweetener and is very processed to get in its form. I used to think it was good because it said “raw” and so like honey, I thought raw meant good. But Agave is a huge natural food industry lie, so please consider reading a little on its negatives. Thank you for this list, it was very helpful and is a great fridge list to keep around.

      HI Nickki, I would agree and the only reason it is mentioned here is because I actually found one small brand called Sun Fire that is based out of Austin that actually carries an amazing agave. But with that being said, he follows its processing very intimately and makes sure that nothing is heated, and that the source is very pure. But once again, yes, most all agave is not very good.

    Dr. Russell Blaylock, neurosurgeon states in his book that nutritional yeast is a form of msg.

      Hello Joanie, I have heard that before but have not been able to see the research behind that. From all my experience with nutritionists to raw foodist to naturopathic doctors and other alternative practitioners, nutritional yeast is always a key recommendation for a healthy diet. Rich in B12, B vitamins, glutathione and an excellent source of vegan protein, I believe it is a great good.

    Where are you sourcing sea vegetables and spirulina from that is not affected by the radiation from Japan?
    Everything I find seems to be from Korea, Japan, or Hawaii.

      Hi Gretchen, I get mine mostly from Korea. From the tests done on the foods grown there, I do not see a real reason to be concerned. I suggest contacting the companies directly and inquiring about their testing methods and their results on the levels of contamination including radiation.
