Vegetarian and Vegan Shoppers Are Right on Target.

Target has been in the news for some interesting reasons recently. Apparently, where people with gender identity issues go to the bathroom is the most important issue these days {Sarcasm}. So, at Appetite for Peace we thought we would focus on  much larger issues: environmental sustainability, animal rights, and speciesism as a whole.


These are all areas where Target is an industry leader as it caters to vegan, vegetarian, and plant based protein desiring customers. Consumers have continued to flock to Target for their cruelty-free lifestyle choices. As we have reported in previous months, consumer demand for meat and dairy is declining. Meanwhile, plant based nutrition is facing unprecedented growth. Target has watched these trends closely as it continues to add new products.

IMG_0038Many carnivores do not know how excited vegetarians and vegans get when we stumble across our favorite products. If they only had hummus or salad options 80% of the time they would understand. Here are a few of our favorite products, which we were surprised and elated to find at our local store.


Vega plant based protein is a staff favorite. It is non-GMO, gluten-free, certified vegan, made without dairy or soy ingredients, and has zero artificial flavors, colors or sweeteners. Best of all it mixes easy and tastes great. We often sprinkle in some PB2, powdered peanut butter for an awesome flavor kick. Buying this at your local Target will also save you on the additional shipping costs of buying from your favorite online retailer.

Aloha plant based protein powder was not a new product to us. It is another great option if you like smooth mixing, tasty vegan protein powders. However, the Vanilla Almond Crunch Bars were amazing! As you can see from the picture, they did not make it through the trip home unscathed. This author’s spouse is super-picky, but the chewy, tasty texture of these cruelty-free, blissful bars was a hit with the whole family.

Amazing Grass Green Superfoods is a staple item for this author. It is an every morning item that sets the tone for the day ahead. Staff has purchased this product online through Amazon for months, but we did cartwheels down the red aisles today when we saw this super product available in three flavors including Chocolate.

Thank you Target! We value your product selection and wellness options, particularly those catering to vegetarians and vegans.
