They helped me pay my way through college. I also met my soul mate, Matt, there.
So I have long ties to that store!
Now that I have a family, I shop there religiously.
When I first started eating a cleaner, vegan diet, I thought my Costco shopping days were over. But oh, contraire! Costco has lots of goodies for the healthy eater.
Keep in mind store items vary by location. But I have found most of these items at stores across the country.
Check out my list of Costco favorites!
They sell the small packs of seaweed. My family eats this instead of potato chips. My 2 year old daughter loves this stuff! 8 small containers come in a pack. This is a great on the go snack.
This is a huge bag of frozen organic veggies. I’ve seen everything from organic corn to organic broccoli and mixed variety depending on the store I go to. I prefer fresh veggies, but it’s nice to have a frozen bag on hand for days when we run out of fresh veggies. I can make a quick dinner with these and still feel good about what my family is eating.
Flaxseed & Pumpkin Cereal
I’m not much of a cereal girl, but my hubby loves cereal so we keep this on hand. It also is a great tasting granola to add to your yogurt or ice cream.
You can’t go wrong with organic fruit. Perfect for smoothies! My 2 year old is obsessed with ice and fruit. So I’ve even started giving her frozen fruit as a snack.
I love dates! We eat them plain or mix them up with nuts like almonds and pecans to make our own candy bars and snacks. Delicious! Want a great no bake cheesecake recipe that uses dates?? Here it is!
Black Bean Burgers
These. Are. The Best Burgers. Ever! I love them. Seriously, they are the best vegan burgers I’ve ever tasted!
I sometimes grab a big bag of nuts from costco. It’s a great snack.
Organic Chia Seeds
I was super excited the first time I saw these at costco. Chia seeds are expensive at Wholefoods and even Trader Joes. I’ve paid more for less chia seeds. That’s why Costco kicks a$$!
Coconut Oil (not pictured above)
I can’t talk about Costco without mentioning their coconut oil. They have organic, all natural coconut oil for a great price! The big container of oil lasts us about two weeks. We use it on EVERYTHING. I cook with it, season food, moisturize skin, treat diaper rash. We love this stuff.
