Bread

This supermarket aisle is usually a disappointment for plant-based eaters. Many well-known national brands use non-plant-based ingredients. Many whole-wheat breads contain milk products, for example, and some traditional Italian breads contain lard.

But better supermarkets also stock bread from a local bakery. You have to check the ingredients, but locally baked bread is frequently vegan. Oddly, these local breads are often kept in a different aisle than the national brands.

The solution? Look for breads that are made from 100 percent whole grains and have either active cultures (for sourdough bread) or other added ingredients like nuts, seeds, or even legumes. You should be able to recognize every ingredient in your bread. If you’re savvy in the kitchen, make your own bread instead.
