shopping, processed, plant-based

Walk into any grocery store, especially the big ones, and you’ll likely see a plethora of vegan commercial products lining store shelves, beckoning you to buy them with shiny packages and bold words declaring they are ‘plant-based’ or ‘vegan’. These options certainly look good, but the question is, are these good for you and should you buy them? Where is the best place to spend your hard-earned money - on processed commercial vegan food products…or elsewhere?

That’s what we’re going to talk about today. Whether you’re a brand-new plant-based eater, in the midst of your diet transition, or a seasoned plant-based eater, this episode is for you. Let’s see what would be the BEST options to pick in the grocery store, and which foods would be BEST for both your health and your wallet. I’ll see you on the inside!
