Want to eat sustainably? But don’t know where to begin?
Here are a series of weekly shopping lists for the flexitarian, pescatarian, vegetarian, and vegan -ites.

Woo! You’re skipping both meat and fish. Can’t give up that cheese though huh? I’m with you. Here’s a shopping list that will meet your nutritional needs while giving tips/tricks for sustainability.
Dang, you’re hardcore. This is the most sustainable diet! WOO. But not always sustainable… you need to be extra diligent to get the nutrients you need, and still take steps to shop sustainbly. Those vegan mini highly processed corn dogs? Probably not good for you or the planet…
