The Obvious: -Cereal(Check the labels to make sure it doesn't have gelatin). -Vegetarian Baked beans. Heinz makes great vegetarian baked beans. -Rice -Bread(wonder bread and home pride bread is vegetarian) -Fruits(fresh and/or canned) -Vegetables(fresh and/or canned) -Tofu(go online to find out how to make it. Be sure to drain the tofu, cut it into small pieces, and pat it down with a towel, to get out all the excess water. If you don't, it will end up tasting like mush). -Peanut butter and Jelly Not so obvious Vegetarian mock meats, pasta, and entrees. Boca, Morningstar Farms, Lightlife, Amy's Kitchen, Annie's Homegrown, Quorn, Tofurky, Tofutti, Worthington, and Yves are brands of vegetarian foods that can be found at Whole Food stores, Health Food Stores, Pathmark, Stop & Shop, and Shop Rite. These companies sell vegetarian deli slices, veggie burgers, imitation turkey roasts and dinner roasts, vegetarian mock chicken cutlets, burritos, macaroni & cheese, and much more. What to avoid Kraft Cheese- This company uses animal enzymes that comes from calf and goat stomachs. They kill the calfs and goats in the process and then use them for meat. Philadelphia cream cheese is their only vegetarian cheese. Frosted Poptarts(contains gelatin) Campbell's lentil soup(contains animal enzymes from baby calfs that are slaughtered for veal). Tropicana Orange, Strawberry, and Banana Juice(contains cochineal beetles) Tropicana Grapefruit Juice(contains cochineal beetles) Lucky Charms(Gelatin from animal hooves and bones) Top Ramen cup noodles and beef or chicken or shrimp flavored soups. Jello Alternatives Horizon and Organic Valley makes vegetarian cheeses. Some of boar's head cheeses are vegetarian. Call them and ask them for a list of vegetarian cheeses, if you wish to find out more Unfrosted Poptarts(Vegetarian) Dole Juices(100% Vegan/Vegetarian) Campbell's Vegetaraian Vegetable soup and tomato soup is vegetarian Top Ramen oriental flavored soups and chili flavored soups are also vegetarian. Apple Jacks, Froot Loops, Corn Flakes, and Raisin Bran crunch is vegetarian Royal Jelly is a vegetarian version of jello Good luck.

You could get your favorite kinds of beans, brown rice, fresh carrots, celery, onions, green peppers, mushrooms, different kinds of lettuce, broccoli, apples, oranges, grapes and pineapple. These are also excellent: pasta, whole grain breads and fruit juices. The following soy products are also great (even though you can make your own with soy granules available at the health food store): Morningstar Grillers, vegetarian sausage, stripple, Boca burgers and vegetarian chicken products. These are meatless. Joining the Yahoo Vegetarian Group can also be very helpful. Many members post vegetarian recipes that are very useful. However, in order to join, you have to submit a vegetarian recipe. God bless you on your new adventure. I wish you the best!

Brown Rice Beans(black,pinto,military,baked beans and many others) Legumes(nuts,nut butters) Lentils Rolled Oats(for oatmeal) Whole Wheat bread(simply determine the labels to be certain it is vegan) A WIDE type of end result and greens. Onions,Tomatoes,Cucumber,Zucchini, Eggplant,Spinach,Mushrooms(ok, it is technically a fungus,however nonetheless yummy!), Sweet Potatoes,Bananas,Strawberries and many others. If you are on a decent price range. Get the stuff that is on sale,in season and many others.

There are several things that you should buy: Tofu ( if you want an alternative for meat ) Beans and lentils buy carrots, broccoli, as they are high in vitamins, and buy a variety of fruits and other vegetables. I know this is random, but some hummus and/or falafel are awesome. Hope I helped :)

Peaches, bananas, blueberries, cucumbers, carrots, green leaf lettuce, onions, grainy bread (the grainier it is, the better), oranges, cherries (NOT cocktail cherries, real cherries), a pineapple, various beans, oatmeal (not instant. try for steel cut, but regular rolled oats would be fine), milk (or soy milk) for protein. Oh, and hot sauce. Also some olive oil + various vinegars (rice, balsamic, and red wine) for dressings. Also, black pepper (not grounded, ground it yourself. tastes much better).

Leighton Originally Answered: Ideas of healthy foods you can get at the grocery store, please?
Here is a list of healthy food ideas :) - If you can go for organic, natural foods ~ Greek yogurt or yogurt (nonfat) - Greek yogurt has more protein than regular yogurt ~ Eggs, cheese, cottage cheese (2% is fine), goat cheese, skim milk or goat milk, etc. ~ Vegetables ~ Fruit & Berries ~ Beans (chickpeas, black beans, kidney beans, mixed beans, etc.) - full of fiber and protein :) ~ Veggie burgers (Amy's makes great veggie burgers) ~ Whole grain breads: multigrain bread, ezekiel bread, rye bread, whole wheat pitas, whole grain tortillas or bagels, etc. ~ Whole grain pasta or brown rice pasta, brown/wild rice, quinoa, buckwheat, etc. ~ Sweet potatoes or potatoes ~ Hummus ~ Oatmeal - great source of fiber, you can add toppings like: almond butter or peanut butter, nuts, fresh berries/fruit, raisins, dried fruit like cherries/cranberries/blueberries, cinnamon, skim milk or non-dairy milk, nonfat greek yogurt, jam, honey, agave nectar, maple syrup, etc. ~ Healthy cereals (Kashi, Nature's Path Organic, etc..high in fiber like raisin bran) ~ Nuts, seeds, almond butter, peanut butter ~ Non-dairy milks like soy, almond or rice milk ~ Ground flax seed to add into a smoothie, top yogurt, etc. ~ Olive oil, good healthy fat, great for stir frys with lots of veggies. ~ Salmon & Tuna ~ Tofu & Tempeh - are great in sandwiches, wraps, on salads, etc. ~ Whole grain crackers ~ Whole grain waffles or pancakes ~ Dark chocolate - in small amounts :) Healthy alternative ideas =) - Replace fast food french fries with homemade sweet potato or regular fries (made with a touch of olive oil, salt) - For chips, you could try natural sweet potato chips, pita chips, fat free popcorn, pop chips or a natural potato chip brand like Kettle. You can also make your own chips by thinly slicing potatoes or sweet potatoes, glazing with olive oil, sprinkling with salt (pepper, basil if you'd like - cinnamon goes well with sweet potatoes) & baking them. - Replace candy with things like frozen grapes or banana slices, dried mango strips, dried blueberries/cranberries/cherries/papaya, raisins, etc. - Try a veggie burger on a whole wheat bun, topped with some things you like. - If you want soda, try cold sparkling water with lemon or mixed with 100 % organic fruit juice instead - Replace white pasta with whole grain in pasta dishes + add veggies (for example adding baby spinach to pasta, grilled vegetables to lasagna, broccoli/grated carrot/spinach/kale to pasta salad, etc. - For a creamy pasta sauce try tomato sauce with goat cheese mixed in, for a healthier dish - Enjoy pizza, try it on thin multigrain crust topped with fresh veggies. - For healthier treat options try things like: frozen yogurt, vanilla greek yogurt with berries & grated dark chocolate, etc. Desserts are fine in moderation :) Recipe ideas: * Sweet potato fries http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/recipes/2906 * Black bean burgers http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/recipes/2565 * Pasta salad with grilled vegetables & mozzarella http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/recipes/1920 * Grilled vegetable pizza http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/recipes/1749 * Grilled vegetable & goat cheese pitas http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/recipes/3002 * Mediterranean crunch salad http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/recipes/2935 * Wilted kale with cherries http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/recipes/3029 * Whole wheat pancakes with pears http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/recipes/2833 * Light banana bread http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/recipes/2198 Website with great recipes, meal/snack ideas, nutrition information: http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/values/building-blocks.php I hope this helps :) ♥
