As a vegan and a health blogger I get asked a lot what are the things that I always keep on my pantry. A lot of people get scared of trying a vegan diet thinking that it is hard to find vegan products and cook. Truth is I though the same thing when I started but as a keep looking and reading I found out that it is really not that hard. There are lots and lots of things that we can still buy and eat, so I want to share with you my extensive grocery list. Because I love cooking and I rather have everything made at home (pasta sauces, mayo, ketchup, bbq sauce, etc) I always keep my list on my kitchen so that way if I’m running out or I run out of something I check it and when its grocery time I know what I need.

(Como vegetariana y un blogger de salud me preguntan mucho cuáles son las cosas que siempre guardo en mi despensa. Mucha gente (al igual que yo cuando comenze) le asusta intentar una dieta vegetariana y piensan que es difícil de encontrar productos veganos y cocinar vegetariano. La verdad es que al seguir buscando y leyendo descubrí que en realidad no es tan difícil. Hay montones y montones de cosas que todavía podemos comprar y comer y quiero compartir con ustedes mi extensa lista de compra. Debido a que me encanta cocinar y preferiría tener todo hecho en casa (salsas para pasta, mayonesa, salsa de tomate, salsa de barbacoa, etc) siempre guardo mi lista en mi cocina para que de esa manera si se me está acabando o se me acaba algo, verifico, marco y así cuando llegue la hora de hacer mi compra sé lo que necesito.)

    I like to go for fresh, seasonal and organic on everything. Since I know organic can be expensive, I recommend if you are going to buy non organic fruts go for the hard shell ones, those are more difficult for all the pesticides to get in unlike soft fruits pesticides get inside more easily.  Just make sure to always wash your fruits, vegetables and herbs at your home.

(Siempre me gusta los alimentos frescos, de temporada y organicos.  Como se que comprar organico puede ser un poco costoso, opta por frutas y vegetales de cascara dura, ya que es mas dificil que los pesticidas entren a la fruta o vegetal, a lo contrario de los que son blandos, los pesticidas entran con mucha facilidad, solo asegurate de lavarlos cuando llegues a tu casa).
Enjoy your grocery Shooping and remember to always be healthy and be happy.

(Disfruta de tu compra y recuerda siempre estar saludable y feliz)
