So many of us grew up in omnivore homes. Milk, cheese, butter, burgers… these were staples in our diets. Because of this, you might think there are no vegan substitutions for the foods you know. Good news – there are many!
When you switch to a plant-based diet, you might want some go-to substitutions to keep top of mind. Sometimes these aren’t fancy (beans have protein too!) but sometimes they are the spiffy new imitation meats like Beyond Burgers.

More Vegan Substitutions Every Day
The best part about this vegan substitutions guide? It’s always growing! Even Silicon Valley knows that vegan substitutions are the future with companies like: Beyond Meat, Miyoko’s Kitchen and Impossible Foods. These companies are giving us options that come closer and closer to tasting like the foods we grew up with. From plant-based burgers to cultured vegan cheeses – the future is vegan, people!
Of course, we love simple, whole foods also. You do not need to get fancy and packaged with your food. Veggies, whole grains, beans, legumes, etc. – there are so many foods in their original form that you can live off and love.
Make yourself a great meal this week with all of the plant-based abundance available to you. Better yet, share that meal with loved ones – vegan and non-vegan alike – to show how delicious a vegan diet is.
Or just go get a big bag of french fries (cooked in veggie oil!) because, remember, french fries are made from potatoes. The best plant-based junk food.
