Where to Find ’Em

Many grocery stores have a natural- or health-food section, where many vegan items can be found. Some products are located in other areas, though. For example, veggie meat slices and tofu are often kept near the produce and some frozen products are kept near breakfast foods. Vegan margarine and soy milk are frequently kept right next to the dairy varieties. Be sure to ask a store clerk for help if you can't find what you are looking for.
