With all the vegan options available at Whole Foods, we’ve decided to take the liberty of making your grocery list for you. (It’s mostly vegan desserts, #SorryNotSorry.) We’re here to help you navigate the dairy-free dessert aisles, the meatless meat section, and the gelatin-free candy shelves. If you’re a new vegan who’s just getting started or someone who gets easily overwhelmed when presented with too many delicious decisions, this list is for you. Are you running short on time or don’t live near a Whole Foods Market? No need to worry. Whole Foods’ website features a vegan filter to make your grocery shopping experience so much easier (and more compassionate).

Vegan Cheese

Whole Foods carries all our favorite dairy-free cheeses, including Follow Your Heart, Violife, and Kite Hill, and even has its own brand of vegan cheese slices and shreds.
