The number of people choosing to reduce or eliminate animal products from their diet is on the rise. As a result, a growing selection of plant-based foods is becoming available at restaurants and grocery stores, and one food market in particular is leading the way.

Trader Joe’s has earned its status as a beloved grocery chain for several compelling reasons. Renowned for its consistent introduction of vegan products and its proactive stance on reducing plastic waste to protect the environment, the chain remains at the forefront of industry trends.

I love the fact that, while Trader Joe’s is not strictly vegan, they do carry a huge variety of items that are. So much so that plant-based and vegan customers need a buggy and not just a basket to do their shopping! In case you didn’t know, just because a food item is listed as vegan doesn’t necessarily mean it is also whole food plant-based (WFPB). Come to find out, these are not just diets but lifestyles as well, and our article about the differences and similarities can explain what we mean.

Take a look at our comprehensive list of oil-free plant-based and vegan items available at this famous grocery store. We will show you how to ensure your shopping cart is stocked with meat-free, dairy-free, and oil-free goodness. The amazing Chef AJ has a very helpful YouTube video about how to eat vegan at Trader Joe’s that you should definitely check out.

I am not an affiliate of Trader Joe’s but get asked often by our plant-based readers about a grocery list for Trader Joe’s, so we decided to try to answer all of your questions in this article. All stores may not carry every product on this list, and their inventory is constantly changing, so be sure to read the labels.

Changing plant-based food items

While products at Trader Joe’s are known for their tendency to come and go from the shelves, when they discontinue one item, another new option is right behind to replace the previous one. The biggest issue is for healthy plant-based folks who are avoiding oil, because the replacement of a previously oil-free product may now contain oil, so always read the labels.
