By now, I hope everyone understands that I love nothing more than grocery shopping. Trader Joe’s is my go-to, but I have to say… I am really impressed with the vegan options that I have been seeing at Target. Between their cruelty-free and all-natural product aisle and the scattered vegan-friendly options throughout the store… damn. They have a crazy selection of Gardein products, and that alone is awesome. I didn’t think I could love Target any more than I did. But I guess it’s possible.
#1: Gardein Meatless Meatballs. They’re the best meatless-meatballs I have had to date – incredible flavor, taste, and texture. 3 meatballs per serving for 150 calories is not bad, especially since they are filling and I like to make mine with sweet onions and peppers.
#2: KIND Peanut Butter Granola Clusters. Joe and I can’t keep our dirty mits out of this bag. Good as is, mixed with yogurt, or with some cashew milk. They remind me of Reeses Puffs cereal, but without the processed fake crap. It’s made with oats, brown rice, buckwheat, millet, amaranth, quinoa. Powerhouse!
#3: Annie’s Fruit Snacks. Flavors ranging from Berry Patch to Pink Lemonade, these gummies are vegan and organic. A great snack to keep in your bag for those on-the-go days.
#4: So Delicious Mocha Almond Fudge Ice Cream. Target has a wide variety of non-dairy ice cream options, and this one is my favorite.
#5: Gardein Crispy Tenders. Sometimes, you just feel 12 and want to eat tenders. Soy nuggets are the best, and these are the real deal.
#6: Simply Balanced Organic Fruit Strips. Because who doesn’t love an organic and natural fruit roll-up? Talk about nostalgia.
#7: Simply Balanced Vegan Meats. Target actually has a vegan meat line now. I love me some Gardein, but these are also great. The smokey chipotle “chicken” is delish.
#8: Amy’s Roasted Vegetable Pizza. I am a fan of making my own pizza, but like to keep a frozen one in the freezer for those once in a blue moon nights that I don’t feel like doing anything but sticking something in the oven.
#9: Clif Bars. Target now carries the Berry Pomegranate Chia flavor, and it’s awesome. They have a wide variety of packs to choose from.
#10: Blue Diamond Habanero BBQ Almonds. I keep these babies at my desk. PACKED with flavor!
