My Costco Must-Haves


If you know me or have been one of my clients, you know that I’m obsesseddddd with Costco.


I go about once per month, stock up, and just get what I need from grocery stores and local farms in between Costco hauls.


There’s a lot of good products at Costco, but there are also lots of products that are disguised as healthy and you kind of need to be the PUFA police🚨, especially when it comes to pre-packaged meals, snacks, chips, bars, etc.


There are a lot of things that I DON’T get at Costco like most of my meat and my eggs. Quality is realllyyyyy important to me in that department and sometimes Costco doesn’t have what I need.


When in doubt, just go for whole-foods that are organic, non-processed or minimally-processed, and with recognizable non-PUFA ingredients.


Happy shopping!


*Please note - every Costco is different. Some Costco locations have a lot more organic options than others. Some of these items are seasonal and some come and go. You just have to be willing to spend some time strolling the aisles and check for new things every visit*
