You gotta love the kind of stores you go into to buy one thing, but leave with a bag full of stuff you never knew you always needed (looking at you, Target). And cult favorite market Trader Joe's is definitely in that category. Between the completely legitimate beauty products to the pre-made dinners, there's so much to stock up on — even if you've got special dietary needs. Specifically, with so many seriously good Trader Joe's vegan finds, eating more plant-based is easier — and more delicious — than ever.
From the classics to the soon-to-be favorites, TJ's never disappoints when it comes to fridge and cupboard staples, and some of its meat-free/dairy-free products are so tasty, you don't even have to be vegan to form an obsession. Honestly what was life before the grocery store's Cauliflower Gnocchi existed? And if you have yet to dip your toe into the Trader Joe's vegan world, you've got a lot more than just that to look forward to.
Between the healthy snacks and the freezer section favorites, you won't feel like you're missing out on a thing with some of TJ's most beloved plant-based products. Ready to stock your home with the goods? Read ahead for 10 vegan favorites to try right now — while they're still around!
