Whether you’ve just turned vegan and are searching for the best plant-based swaps or you’re simply looking to cut back on your meat consumption but don’t know where to start, switching to a vegan diet has never been easier. Long gone are the days where limp lettuce and veggie bean burgers were the only option, we’re now seeing big name brands offering vegan options and independent brands popping up with innovative and exciting vegan alternatives to meats, fish, dairy and sweet treats.
If you’re looking for easy vegan swaps that not only look good but taste delicious, online grocery experts Ocado are here to help. They have taken their range up a notch, offering plant-based options for just about everything.
