Basically yes...grains, beans, veggies & fruits. - if vegan of course...lacto-ovo adds in the whole dairy group. Really you have lots of great options.

For those who don't want to/can't buy the imitation stuff, there's a lot you can do. We live in China, so we couldn't get a boca burger even if we wanted one.

What I do is make things ahead of time and freeze them for quick meals. I make vegetable patties for "burgers" and freeze them. Most nights we do a variation of veggies and rice or soup. Finding vegetable combinations that knock your socks off is key to a great meal even if you can't find the imitation things. Red onions, tomatoes, and garlic are great together. Brown mushrooms, bok choy, and red bell peppers are great (especially over cous cous). Broccoli, Cauliflower, and other root vegetables with an orange juice, syrup, and cayenne pepper blend is awesome!

Grains:
Quinoa
Brown Rice
Spaghetti
Mostaciolli
Farfalle
Wild Rice
Israeli Cous Cous
Regular Cous Cous
Whole Wheat Bread
White Bread (from the bakery because I found one that doesn't use dairy/eggs)
English Muffin Bread that I make
Cereal
Oatmeal
Muesli
Wheetbix type cereal
noodles (we like soba-style or thin noodles to pop in soup)

Veggies (these are our staple vegetables. We get fresh ones daily from the market behind our house and get more if we're in the mood for something different):
brown mushrooms
White mushrooms
Oyster mushrooms
Porcini mushrooms
Baby bella mushrooms (Mushrooms are a veggies good friend!)
carrots
potatoes
garlic
onions and shallots (these are actually in the pantry with the potatoes. red, white, and yellow onions and red shallots)
red, orange, yellow and green bell peppers
broccoli
cauliflower
bok choy
tomatoes
leeks (You must make friends with leeks. They are the most delicious, delicate flavor! I promise)
green onions

Misc Fridge:
Milk (soy, rice or almond, depends on the mood)
Jams
Soy Sauce
Rice Vinegar
Hot Sauce
Tomato Sauce
OJ

Misc. Pantry:
Vegetable Broth
Teas
Soups (I usually make them from scratch though)
Syrup
Spices
Beans galore (cannellini, black, red kidney, you name it, i love it)
Boxes of curry for quick meals
