For those who still don’t know, the vegan diet is based on grains, beans, fruits and vegetables (these are the most important items on the vegan grocery list). Before we present you the vegan grocery list, there is also one thing we must mention, something that worries many people who are about to become vegans; it’s a widespread myth that being vegan is expensive. Finally, here’s the vegan grocery list, started as essential, but we later extended it adding the items that are commonly used in vegan diary, although they are not actually considered essential.
Sometimes you probably find yourself  in a hurry and have no time to prepare something to eat.
The livestock industry is our most valuable food production industry, and includes cattle, sheep, chicken and pigs.
In 2011, there were about 29 million cattle in Australia, and about 91% of these were used for beef.
Farm numbers in Australia have been declining in recent times, but the average size of farms has increased by about 23%.
Agricultural production is concentrated on larger farms, with 10% of farms producing more than 50% of output. Of the food we eat, 90% is grown in Australia, and often travels long distances to reach us. We buy our food at supermarkets, delicatessens, butchers, bakeries, farmers, markets, fruit and vegetable stores and, more recently, online. Food is essential for our health and wellbeing, so it is important that we understand about the food we eat. About $63 a week was spent on food prepared outside the home (restaurants and takeaways), and $32 a week on alcoholic drinks.
Takeaway was the next most popular option for evening meals (9%), followed by eating at a restaurant (8%), and home delivery (5%).
The foods we choose are influenced by price, availability, culture, personal preferences and health and nutrition concerns. Food is an important part of our social and family lives, and the eating habits and preferences of those around us influence our food choices. Personal beliefs also influence food choices, such as concerns about the environmental impact of growing particular foods, or the wellbeing of animals.
People may also choose foods based on health concerns, such as high blood pressure, allergies, high cholesterol, or a need to lose weight. Food labels present nutritional and other information to help consumers make safe and healthy food choices. Food advertising to children is very common and most is for foods high in fat, sugar or salt content. Children who watch 20 hours of television or more per week (almost 3 hours per day) are twice as likely to be overweight or obese as children who watch less television. Good nutrition can contribute to quality of life, help to maintain healthy body weight, protect against infections, and reduce the risk of chronic diseases and early death. With the exception of breast milk for babies, no single food provides all the nutrients we need for good health-so it's important to eat a wide variety of foods and avoid restrictive diets.
Most experts agree that babies should be fed only breast milk until around 6 months of age, when solid foods can be introduced in addition to breast milk. 20% of adults are drinking alcohol at risky levels, men more so than women, particularly those aged 18-29. The number of people who are overweight or obese is continuing to rise-we have one of the highest rates of obesity in the world. Body mass index (BMI) and waist circumference are the two main measures used for monitoring body weight. These classifications may not be suitable for children, older people and all ethnic groups. Although all children gain weight as they grow, excess body weight occurs when more energy is eaten than used.
Some foods undergo processing, for example, to extend shelf life, improve flavour, extend seasonal availability, or make them easier to store and transport.
To address important public health concerns, in Australia, by law, bread-making flour must be fortified with folic acid and thiamin, and salt used in bread must be iodised. Sometimes, manufacturers fortify foods voluntarily-for example, breakfast cereals are often fortified with vitamins and minerals.
Food is not only fundamental to our health and wellbeing, but our food supply system also affects the world around us.
Food waste isn't just leftover food on our plates: it includes all food and resources (for example, water and fuel) wasted from paddock to plate. Each year, Australian households throw out about $600 of food, and nationally we waste about $5 billion of food.

The largest category thrown away in dollar terms is fruit and vegetables (just over $1.1 billion per year), closely followed by restaurant and takeaway food and then meat and fish.
Households with higher incomes waste more food; those with incomes above $80,000 waste an average of $803 worth of food per year compared with $518 for those with incomes of less than $40,000. In Australia, basic nutritious foods in rural and remote areas can cost up to 30% more than in capital cities and be less available.
In Australia, like the rest of the world, the lower your socioeconomic status, the worse, on average, your health will be. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, people in rural areas, those in disadvantaged areas and people with disabilities, generally have worse health than other Australians. How inequality influences food choices and behaviours, and affects health is largely unknown and difficult to untangle.
However, it is clear that certain health risk factors are more common among these population groups and diet can be linked to these risk factors.
Because food is so important to our bodies, economy and environment, there are some challenges to be faced in the future. With more people living in cities, it is likely that food supply and demand will be affected. Globally, urban dwellers generally eat more meat and dairy foods and less fibre-rich grain foods, whereas rural dwellers eat more cereals, tubers and roots. The Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations states that food security exists 'when all people, at all times, have access to sufficient, safe and nutritious food to meet their dietary needs for an active and healthy life'.
Global food production depends on land, water and energy (particularly fossil fuels) to produce, process and distribute food. Fertile lands for food production are diminishing due to urbanisation, and land being increasingly diverted to mining and biofuel production. Soils that are eroding, increasing in salt content and being depleted of nutrients threaten sustainable food production. The world's supply of clean, fresh water is steadily decreasing, with demand exceeding supply in many parts of the world. Agriculture currently accounts for 70% of freshwater from rivers, lakes and underground sources and most of this is used for irrigation.
The production of 1 kilogram of wheat requires about 1,000 litres of water, whereas about 5 to 10 times more water is required to produce 1 kilogram of meat. Fewer than 20 animal and plant species now provide most of the world's food and just 3 crop plants-wheat, rice and maize (corn)-supply more than half of the world's food energy.
Although 25,000 plant varieties are available for agricultural purposes, fewer than 3% are in use today. Agricultural systems without much variation are more susceptible to pests and diseases, and are less able to adapt to environmental changes.
During this time, the potato was the staple crop for the poorest regions of Ireland and for more than 3 million people was their only significant food source. In 1845, a plant disease commonly referred to as potato blight spread rapidly through the poorer communities of western Ireland and caused massive crop failures, turning susceptible potatoes into inedible slime. As a consequence, about 1 million people died of starvation and more than 1 million people emigrated. Evidence for climate change is growing, with increasing air and ocean temperatures, rising sea levels, and melting snow and ice. The food and livestock industry is a major source of greenhouse gases, due to livestock emissions, soil disturbance, use of machinery and chemicals, food transportation and waste. Agriculture contributes to greenhouse gas emissions through land clearing and methane releases.
According to some climate change experts, moderate increases in temperatures (1-3°C), along with increased carbon dioxide and rainfall changes, could benefit crop yields for some regions. Daylesford Organic at 208-212 Westbourne Grove is a uber stylish cafe and food store offering a range of organic meats, fruits, vegetables, breads and cheese. Realizing that the consummation of the industrially produced food and stress are the main causes of many diseases, more and more people turn to the different, healthier lifestyles, such as veganism and vegetarianism. Vegans never eat or wear animal products, which means they don’t eat eggs, milk and milk products, and don’t wear leather, fur, silk and wool. For example, growing fruit is part of a primary industry, canning it is a secondary industry, and selling canned fruit is a tertiary industry.
Milk is used mostly for drinking, but also for making cheese, milk powder, butter and other dairy products. Australia is the second largest exporter of beef in the world and the eighth largest producer.
The number of chickens used for chicken meat increased from 433 million to 512 million between 2005 and 2010.

Farming practices have also changed with the use of more intensive production systems and techniques.
The two major supermarket chains own about one-third of all supermarkets in Australia, and more importantly have almost 80% of the packaged grocery market.
In 2009, most Australians (78%) reported eating a home-cooked meal around 5-6 nights a week. Males were more likely than females to report eating out at restaurants, eating takeaway and eating home delivered food. In some circumstances, limited access to affordable fresh fruit and vegetables (among other products) may be an important factor influencing dietary choice.
Some labelling information is mandatory, while others are voluntarily added by manufacturers. However at 6 months, just 15% drank only breast milk and 21% drank mainly breast milk with occassional water or juice. Excess weight increases the risk of poor health during childhood and of developing chronic conditions as adults.
For example, heating food can destroy some nutrients, whereas freezing can help retain some nutrients. This causes nutrient losses and environmental effects, such as rapidly expanding landfill areas. In 2011, more than half of the world's population lived in urban areas-an important shift from the 1950s when the figure was less than 30%. This has dramatically reduced the diversity of plants contributing to food supplies and is known as 'genetic erosion'. Farmers relied heavily on one main variety of potato, the 'lumper', as it produced greater yields than other varieties. Despite advances in farming practices, weather and climate are still major factors in determining productivity. Although some conventional grocery stores are finally carrying organic produce and natural products in limited quantities, you’ll pay a higher price for them there than at the health food store.
Although this seems impossible to many people who can’t imagine their lives without milk and meat, it is actually very easy, since there is a healthier alternative to everything today. Like we said, beans and grains are one of the most important ingredients in the vegan dairy and they are very cheap. Females were more likely than males to report preparing the evening meal themselves (84% compared with 62%).
Labelling must include a list of ingredients and food additives, as well as any potential allergens. People who are physically active, children, breastfeeding women and those in hot environments may need extra.
For example, 8 out of the 10 countries with the greatest increase in obesity are developing or newly industrialised nations.
Although the famine had many causes, the lack of genetic variation in Irish potatoes contributed to the severity of this disaster. For a truly unique lunch experience, call into Books for Cooks at 4 Blenheim Crescent where not only are they are fantastic shop filled with cookbooks but they also cook up a three course meal from one of their books each day and if you are lucky enough to get there early enough (we recommend by 12pm) and get a table you are in for a real treat.
Furthermore, the owners and management of conventional stores are often driven mainly by profits, while owners of health food stores are driven by both profits and a philosophy. As vegan, you’ll spend a little extra on fresh veggies, especially organic ones, but even an omnivorous diet includes some vegetables.
Eat like the stylish locals and visit Ottolenghi at 63 Ledbury Road where they serve delicious, largely organic healthy salads, sensational buttery croissants and a whole range of beautifully prepared food to either eat in or take away. The philosophy is that we should only use products that are healthy for us and for the environment.
Also, packaged store-bought vegan sausages and other store-brought items are always more expensive than homemade variants. Organic supermarket Planet Organic at 42 Westbourne Grove with an impressive range of organic food, a cafe and juice bar. Every business must make a profit to stay in business, but not necessarily at the expense of our health or the environment! On a Saturday you will find the Notting Hill Farmers Market in the carpark behind Waterstones, tucked in behind Notting Hill Gate where you can pick up some fresh seasonal produce, some of which is organic. Health food stores carry not only a wide selection of organic produce, but also carry almost all the other types of products you would find at a conventional store—only these products are more healthy for us and the environment.
