My Costco Plant-Based Food List
This post may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure here.
I’m sharing my favorite Costco Plant-Based food items that I love for my large family.
Having a Costco membership with a large family is an absolute must-have.
We need the extra-large box of trash bags and endless toilet paper that are so cheap!
It also takes a lot to feed all 6 of us breakfast, lunch, and dinner each day.
There are many items we use on a regular basis when eating Whole Food Plant-Based.

My Costco Plant-Based Food List
If you are not familiar with Costco, you will need a membership to shop there.
No worries because you actually get a check back at the end of the year with two percent of your purchases back in cash. for us, it pays for our next year’s membership with quite a bit of extra money.
Now onto the whole food plant-based Costco food list.
Nuts and Cashews at Costco
I can get a huge tub of organic raw cashews for $14.99 and we use it to make sauces and cream-based items. It’s the cheapest I’ve found by a lot.
They always have a good deal on their organic nuts like almonds, cashews, and peanuts as well.
What are the other pantry items I grab while at Costco?

As you can see they have a ton for plant-based or vegan families!

- Banana and nut butter
- Veggies in a skillet over rice
- Chipolte black bean burger
- Sweet potato in the air fryer
- Mushroom stroganoff
- White bean soup with kale and sweet potato

Since we are whole food plant-based, we try our best not to consume vegetable oils.
There is a bit of oil in the pre-made Chipotle Black Bean Burgers so we only eat those if we are in a hurry. It’s a healthier replacement for fast food for us.
Not ideal but way better than fast food when we are in a rush.
