Trader Joe's Has Vegan Alternatives To Your Favorite Foods

Come through, frozen aisle!!!!

Grocery shopping trips when you're vegan might take a little bit extra time—or at least some more planning—than just grabbing whatever you want off the shelves. Fresh produce is an easy pick-up, but boxed snacks and meals might take a second or two of reading through the label to ensure it's in line with your eating habits. At Trader Joe's, there are a bunch of vegan-friendly options you can pick up, so we decided to explore some of the most popular products for you.

Perhaps one of the best things about Trader Joe's is that they offer plenty of vegan alternatives to typically non-vegan foods. Think plant-based versions of feta cheese and cream cheese, which offer similar texture to the non-vegan counterparts and can be used in all of the same ways. These products are made with ingredients like potato protein, chickpea protein, and coconut oil, so you can count on them to work with your diet.

Trader Joe's is also well known for their selection of dips that pair with chips, crackers, or vegetables. The vegan tzatziki dip uses dairy-free cream cheese as the base, instead of yogurt, and combines lemon juice, chopped cucumber, fresh dill, and garlic for flavor. Trust, this dip with some chopped jicama from TJ's is an absolute treat. Opt for the vegan caramelized onion dip, vegan bolognese sauce with pea protein, vegan caesar dressing, and herbed tahini sauce for toppings you can use to round out your meals.

It's safe to say the frozen section of Trader Joe's is their claim to fame, so rest assured there are vegan options to pick up in those aisles, too. The chicken-less mandarin orange morsels (made with soy), tofu scramble with soy chorizo, vegetable Pad Thai, and protein patties are all a great place to start.

These are just a few of the many vegan snacks and meals Trader Joe's has to offer. Some are sold with unmissable "VEGAN" labels on the packaging, but others might require taking a closer glance at the label to check up on the ingredients. Either way, I see a full Trader Joe's cart in your future. Just a hunch!
