Tips and Tools for A Vegan Kitchen
Ok, so what is a Vegan Kitchen?
Nowadays, a vegan lifestyle is easy to obtain; many great products are available. Some of our favorites are Beyond Meat Burgers, Oat milk, and Tofutti ice cream. But a vegan lifestyle is more than just what you eat. We compiled a great list of tools and tricks to make your vegan kitchen super easy. They are helpful products that are 100% vegan, but will also help you maintain your vegan diet and lifestyle.
When it comes to vegan kitchens, a wooden cutting board is necessary. It is because wood cutting boards hold fewer bacteria when compared to plastic cutting boards. Once plastic cutting boards are scarred with a knife, it is hard to clean and harbors more bacteria. The bacteria that seep into the wooden cutting board have a shorter lifetime than the plastic cutting boards.
Another significant advantage of choosing a wooden cutting board is that it is more durable and easier on your knives. The lesser plastics we use, the more sustainable our environment becomes. You will also be creating less plastic waste.
I cannot stress enough how vital knives are in the kitchen. Knives are the most critical tool in your vegan kitchen. Using the right knife will reduce your prep time in half and make your so much easier and faster. There was a time when I used cheap knives, and I did not know what I had been missing until I invested in a good knife. Now, I cook just to use my knife. I know it sounds crazy, but it's true. Chopping vegetables and herbs can sound like a gigantic task when you don't have the right tools. There are tons of options when it comes to knives. But high carbon stainless steel knives are the best since they don't rust when exposed to moisture. You get your money's worth, and you make your work easier. Another critical factor in buying your knife is checking if you feel comfortable holding the knife.
Freshly squeezed juices can get so expensive at the juice bar; why not make your own? Investing in a good and effective juicer has so many benefits. This way, you can pick the ingredients that benefit you. For example, switching to a glass of fresh-squeezed juice instead of coffee can make a huge difference in your gut health. Plus, you can use the leftover pulp in veggie burgers, vegetable broth, granola bars, etc. You can also combine the pulp with some juice and freeze them in popsicle molds to have vitamin-loaded popsicles!
Swedish Dishcloths are one of the most critical eco-cleaning tools for keeping a kitchen clean. If you use paper towels to clean the spills, you calculate the number of paper towels you use just to clean the falls in your kitchen. And the sad part is you cannot reuse them or recycle them! They just end up in landfills. What is the best alternative to paper towels? It's the Swedish Dishcloth! They absorb the spills super quickly and leave no streaks behind. When you are done cleaning the spill, you can wash them up and dry them on your dish rack to reuse them whenever required. When it's time to say goodbye to your Swedish Dishcloth, you can toss them in your compost bin because they are biodegradable. Supra Endura's Swedish Dishcloths consist of 70% cellulose and 30% cotton. So, they are bio-degradable and compostable. On average Swedish Dishcloths can last anywhere from 9-12 months.
Vegan wax wraps
Yes, I had to mention our stylish and colorful Supra Endura's vegan wax wrap. That's because these vegan beeswax wrap alternatives are that good! When it comes to a vegan kitchen, we know that having the right tools can make a world of difference.

There are many great options to help achieve your vegan lifestyle in the kitchen. Investing in the right tools can make your life so much easier. We are pleased to offer some great vegan and eco-products to help your kitchen journey.
