Food items

Natural Non-Fortified Nutritional Yeast Flakes (24 oz.) – I’ve been using this for years to avoid unwanted additives. My son and I enjoy it so much! We mix 2 TBS with some water for a tasty umami-flavored paste every single day! I also use it in various recipes.

Organic Date Sugar – This is an excellent 1:1 replacement for other processed sugars and includes several nutrients as described in Dr. Greger’s outstanding video.

Tasty Bite Indian Entree Channa Masala – My son and I both enjoy these while on road trips and sometimes in a pinch at home too. Note that it does contain a trivial amount of oil and added sugar. I also found them at my local Target.

Butler Soy Curls – These are an excellent meat replacement given its texture and protein content! I often made BBQ Soy Curls during extended family road trips.


B12 Vegan Vitamin – Vegans and/or WFPB people MUST ensure a reliable source of vitamin B12 in their diet to avoid irreparable harm. As a supplement, Dr. Greger recommends getting cyanocobalamin due to higher shelf stability over the active methylcobalamin form.

Vegan Omega 3 – I’ve been taking this for years and also giving it to my kids. I’m not totally convinced it’s necessary or recommended after seeing Dr. Klaper’s video in February 2020. I’m still taking them today but will let the evidence guide me accordingly.

MRM Vegan Vitamin D3 & K2 – I’ve been taking these for years.

Vegan Vitamin D3 Gummy – Both of my kids love them!

Kitchen tools

Vitamix blender – This is indispensable in my kitchen as I use it daily for smoothies and more. Vitamix and Blendtec blenders are definitely worth the premium cost given their power and reliability. Unsure which one to get? Check out this great review site explaining the different Vitamix blenders.

Instant Pot Pressure Cooker – This is another must-have item for optimal plant-based eating! I use mine daily for cooking dry beans, sweet potatoes, rice, quinoa, greens, soups, etc. I also have an 8-quart InstantPot for larger recipes.

Cuisinart Food Processor – A good food processor makes quick work of veggies for super salads, nice creams, etc. FYI, I purchased the larger 14 cup model DFP-14BCNY.

Silicone Bread and Loaf Pan Set – This is excellent for making lentil loaves!
