Overwhelmed at the grocery store? You're not alone! Transitioning to a whole food plant-based diet can do wonders for your health, but there is a learning curve, especially when it comes to filling up your grocery cart. Worry not! MamaSezz is here to aid in the transition with this list of whole food plant-based and oil-free brands.
While most of your whole food plant-based groceries are going to come from the produce and grains sections, there are some whole food plant-based packaged food brands. Here's a list of some of our oil-free favorites to add to your shopping list.

Look out for "enriched wheat flour," "wheat flour" "organic wheat flour, " and "unbleached flour" - this means they are not whole grain. Look for the word "whole" in the ingredients.
The best plant-based milks have no sugar added and limited ingredients/preservatives.
A lot of store-bought condiments are loaded with sugar, salt, and additives. But these brands can be added to your whole food plant-based pantry supply:
