New at Wheatsville

Gardein (“garden” + “protein”) is a line of healthy and delicious plant-based foods slow cooked to have the authentic taste and texture of premium lean meat. Made from a savory blend of vegetables, grains and plant-based proteins including pea, wheat and soy, Gardein is free of cholesterol and trans fats and the majority of products provide a good source of fiber and are low in fat. Gardein's plant-based foods offer a good source of vegetable protein and all the health benefits of eating less animal-based protein without sacrificing the texture and taste that many people crave. 9-10.5oz, Reg. $4.69-4.99

Chapul has a simple goal: to build a more sustainable future by introducing incredibly efficient insect protein in a delicious, organic product... tasty Chapul bars. Delicious and all-natural, Chapul bars are made with protein from crickets, one of the planet's most amazing, energy-efficient creatures. No soy, no dairy-- just an innovative flour inspired by native techniques used for centuries in the American Southwest and Mexico, where insects have historically formed part of a healthy diet. The Chapul crew believes passionately in sustainable use of precious water resources. Since agriculture absorbs 92% of all freshwater consumed globally, the company believes change starts with what we eat. Chapul also donates 10% of all profits to water conservation projects. 

The Chaco Bar is inspired by one of the great pre-Columbian civilizations of the American Southwest. The Chaco peoples lived in and around the high plateau of Northwestern New Mexico for roughly 300 years, and their survival in such an arid region is attributable in large part to incredibly efficient agricultural practices. They grew corn, beans and squash... all while living in the high desert. Some of their great buildings– one of which was the largest dwelling in North America until the late 1800s– can still be visited today. The tasty Chaco Bar combines dates, peanuts and dark chocolate, with a touch of agave nectar to tempt your sweet tooth. And of course, energy and protein from crickets! 1.8oz, Reg. $3.39


LÄRABARs are delicious blends of unsweetened fruits, nuts and spices. Made from whole foods, each flavor contains no more than nine ingredients-- they're pure and simple, just as nature intended. New LÄRABAR ALT bars are substantial enough to stand in for a meal, packing 10 grams of protein per bar (versus an average of 5 grams per bar for the remainder of the LÄRABAR line). Pea protein, valued for its high digestibility (90-95%) and low potential for allergic response, is paired with rice protein to achieve a superior amino acid profile than either protein alone. Gluten free, dairy free, and non-GMO.
1.77-1.95oz, Reg. $1.89
