I have been a vegan for a whole 2 months. (So long, I know) It’s been hard! What’s keeping me going?! I FEEL GOOD!! I’m down 20 pounds and ready for a new week for sure. The first couple of weeks, I spent a lot of time thinking about what I couldn’t have, instead of what I could have. Being a vegan is hard! But the health benefits have been totally worth it! I know what you are thinking… “She’s only been a vegan for 2 months and is already telling me what I should eat.” False. I said it was hard. So I wanted to let you know that I have found a few snacks that have totally made it easier!! AND. I said these were snacks EVERYONE will love. You don’t have to be a vegan to indulge in these items. I’ve been asked a few times what I like to eat so…
I wanted to start sharing a few of my favorite finds, because everyone, not just vegans, will LOVE these snacks!!
Here we go!
1.Vegan Banana Bread – Trader Joe’s
This. Is. Perfection. Vegan Banana Bread from Trader Joe’s is incredible. My mom would make homemade banana bread all the time and this totally compares to that homemade bread. It’s moist, it’s very flavorful… it also has walnuts, which adds to the delectable taste. I have no negative things to say about this bread. GET THIS BREAD.
2. Jalapeno Lime Chips – Costco
Guys. These are delish. One thing I totally miss in the non-vegan food category is Doritos. I love snacking on chips. I love the cheesy goodness that comes with it. These Jalapeno Chips are like the… the classy, yet slightly edgy older brother of the Dorito. (I hope that makes any sense.) They have just a little zest, not too spicy, but they taste just like a Cool Ranch Dorito with a little extra flair! The main issue: You won’t be able to stop eating them.
3. Coconut Clusters – Costco
I am a huge coconut fan. I am a huge granola fan. I am a huge cluster fan. So I am a huge Coconut Cluster Fan. The sugar content on these is a little higher than I would like, but totally worth it. (It’s all about the moderation) These are found at Costco, which means it is in a Costco sized bag and I am here for it. I will typically eat a couple clusters and call it dessert after lunch or dinner. Super satisfying!
BONUS: Costco also has vegan-friendly DARK CHOCOLATE Coconut Clusters. These will BLOW YOUR MIND. Seriously addicting. So be careful.
4. Simply Truth Organic Sea Salt & Butter Flavored Baked Puffs – Smith’s
Have you ever had Pirate’s Booty? These are kind of like that. They taste like buttery balls of goodness and they are vegan friendly! My only issue… I literally eat the bag in one sitting. I am not joking. They melt in your mouth and ugh. They are just SO good! Trust me on this one.
5. Peanut Butter Granola – Trader Joe’s
I am obsessed with peanut butter. Like. It’s bad. Which means this granola is my new guilty pleasure. It’s just a beautiful oat mixture with PEANUT BUTTER! It also makes me drink a ton of water, because peanut butter makes me so thirsty. But seriously you guys, but this on your next shopping list. You will NOT regret it. (And if you do, you can take it back to Trader Joe’s. Yeah, they let you do that.)
I am in no way a vegan expert, but I do know that all these treats are fly as hell. They aren’t terrible for you either. I will totally have more posts like this. There is way more that goes into my diet, but everyone likes a good snack. So ENJOY! Let me know what you think when you try these!!!!
