7 Great New Vegan Costco Items
To all my readers who love my vegan Costco updates: Here’s a new one for you. I’ve been snapping pictures left and right and buying these new products and testing them for you. Whenever I’m photographing in Costco, I turn to my husband and say, oh this is for my blog. His response: Yeah, I know. He’s used to me snapping pics of my food!
Caveat: I don’t know if your local Costco sells the same exact items, so if you don’t see these in your store, request them.
1. Organic Millet & Brown Rice Ramen
Brendan and I have made veggie Thai green curry and added these noodles. They’re delish, and packed with 8 grams of protein per serving. Like the packaging says, the noodles are done in 4 minutes. Definitely a must grab!
2. Health Warrior Chia Bars
3. Rhythm Superfoods Kale Chips
I’m a kale chip fan, but usually they are so pricey compared to what you actually get in the bag. This giant bag was about $8 and I love the Kool Ranch flavor. As a kid, I used to love cool ranch Doritos, but this is like a way healthier Dorito.
4. Gardein Beefless Szechuan Strips
Brendan and I have what we call “lazy Chinese night.” When we’re both beat from work, all we do is toss some brown rice in our rice cooker, bust out the Gardein Chinese frozen goods, toss in some veggies, and call it dinner. It’s better than takeout! These beefless Szechuan strips are absolutely delicious and the giant bag lasts at least three meals for us.
5. Late July Sea Salt Multigrain Tortilla Chips
I’m seriously obsessed with these chips. I love that they are non-GMO and organic, but also have a satisfying crunch and loaded with chia and flax seeds. I haven’t seen them when I last went to Costco, so let’s hope that they bring this guy back.
6. Tolerant Red Lentil Rotini
I rarely eat white pasta any more in favor of quinoa or brown rice-based pastas for extra protein and fiber. When I spotted this red lentil pasta, I quickly snagged it. One serving has a whopping 21 grams of protein and the only ingredient listed is red lentils. And it tastes great! There’s no beany flavor. This is a must get if you see it!
As I mentioned, I love having snacks that I can stash in my purse so I don’t turn into a hangry monster when I’m stuck in traffic. I love that these bars have simple ingredients like dates, cashews, cinnamon, and apples. Flavorful and simple—just the way I like it!
