Almost 2 years ago, I shared my top 15 Healthy Costco Items, and guess what, I’m here to do it again! Some items are the same…others are new!
Eating healthy doesn’t have to break the bank…..and with the rising costs of EV-ERY-THING, eating healthy without giving up your last born [which BTW, I would 100% do…kidding! sorta ;)] is totally possible. With a little help from Uncle C, you can buy alot for a little. They might possibly have the largest section of any bulk retailer and do pretty well at populating their stores with regional brands as well. Now, before you start coming at me with support local, let me be clear. We support our local Farmer’s market from May-June, but living in Eastern Canada means winters are long and cold and access to vegetables and fruit is limited. Shopping at Costco (and other stores) in the winter months allows us to still maintain a healthy diet without freaking out about how much it all costs.
Ideally, you want to be eating mostly real, whole foods and minimizing the processed junk and ‘food’ out of packages. We are what we eat…and what we eat eats sooooooo, prioritizing organic, grass-fed meats, organic produce as much as your budget allows is a good idea. If you want a little reminder of the Dirty Dozen and The Clean Fifteen, check them out here and here.
At the end of the day, some vegetables are better than no vegetables so if budget is tight, consider checking out the frozen vegetable section. SO MUCH VARIETY. And very little downside. #SavingCoin
Here’s my 2019 list of Healthy Costco staples that you should check out (and buy) the next time you are there.
