The 12 Best Healthy Plant-Based Products to Buy at CVS
Do you often find yourself hungry in the city with nothing but pizza joints and burger places in sight? Turns out, there are plenty of healthy plant-based foods, snacks, and drinks that you can duck into CVS and purchase. Yes, CVS to the rescue.
In fact, earlier this week, CVS announced an expanded frozen foods lineup and better-for-you snacks coming to their store shelves, with plenty of options on the plant-based front including Beyond Meat Beyond Burger, Beyond Meat Beyond Meatballs, Bird’s Eye frozen veggies, and LesserEvil Organic No Cheese Cheesiness Popcorn. Below, 12 plant-based staples to grab on your next CVS run.
1. Beyond Meat Beyond Burger, $6.99

2. Beyond Meat Beyond Meatballs, $7.99
Another newcomer to CVS, Beyond Meat’s meatballs hit the spot, whether you’re piling ‘em on over a pile of zoodles or throwing into a hero with sautéed peppers and onions.
