C One of North America’s largest wholesalers, Costco, is now offer- ing a variety of vegan options in their food court! Good-bye Polish hot dogs, hello açaí bowls and vegan “al pastor” salad! Yes, you read that right! Costco will be replacing their fa- mous Polish hot dog with a much healthier vegan option. So far, Costco has only added the new vegan items onto their menus in select stores. The açaí bowl is just 330 calories, full of antioxidant-rich fruits, and can be purchased for $4.99. The “al pastor” salad, which is made from 100% plant-based soy pro- tein, can be purchased for $4.99 as well. When giant chain stores like Costco bring vegan options onto their menu, it’s easy to see how widespread vegan and plant-based diets are becoming! Veganism is becoming more socially acceptable and people are beginning to see and learn more about veganism. It’s not a trend, it is a lifestyle. A cruelty-free, compassionate lifestyle that is here to stay. The next time you need a good meal after a long day of shopping for your weekly supplies at Costco, stop by the food court to try out their new vegan items! 20 Raise Vegan OCTOBER 2018 ostco Wholesale Goes VEGAN!
