My Top 10 Healthy Picks at Costco

UPDATE: I did a Periscope recording of my most recent Costco haul in Feb 2016. Click the link to watch that and you can watch all of my previous Periscope recordings over on my Katch Channel!

 Okay - so I'm not a superfan of Costco but I have a membership and go every couple months to stock up on about 10 items + the odd kitchen gadget just to make my hubs roll his eyes ;) 
 I like the way Costco has been evolving over the last few years to include more healthy items at a pretty decent price. So I thought I'd put a quick Top Ten together of my picks for the healthiest items they currently have (Note - Costcos tend to vary in different parts of the country)

1.Taste of Nature Granola Bars: Organic & real ingredients. Good for those times when you want a little more texture than a larabar, but still want a simple ingredient list.
 2. Maranatha Almond Butter. The price is the perk for this guy - around $6. Just wish they carried the organic version.
 3. Blue Diamond Almond Breeze 40 cal $9.99: Again - pretty decent price as these usually sell for between $3-5 per carton. I like to always have some of these on hand in the pantry but do prefer to make my own when I have time.
 4. Simply Natural Organic Pasta Sauce: There are 3 things I love about this product: Organic is important when buying a tomato product (part of the dirty dozen club), Sugar is NOT in the ingredients and most pasta sauces have a lot and the jars are perfect for resusing. Triple Score!
 5. Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts: Oh be still my little hemp hearts...do I even need to say why this is on the Top Ten? Amazing that Costco is carrying these sweet little seeds and I think the price was awesome at around $13. 
 6. Oh Mary...you make the most lovely crackers. Gluten free, wheat free, dairy free + Organic and about the closest thing to dehydrating your own. These are the most affordable way to buy at around $7 for two bags of cracks
7. Tru Roots Organic Quinoa: Okay quinoa lovers - this is the show stealer. Best price you will ever find on quinoa, and it's organic...AND it's pre rinsed. Because in case you didn't know - you should always rinse your keenwa before cooking to get rid of the saponins (aka nature's soap)
 8. Organic Brown Rice $9.99: Since we've cut wheat out of our diet - I rotate through this rice, quinoa & buckwheat for our sources now. I've been loving this brand...
 9. Tru Roots Sprouted Bean Trio: Sprouted adzuke + mung + lentils + 15 min cooktime = a busy healthy mama's dream. I use this every week in soups, burgs & loaves. 
 10. Last up is the deal of the day: over a kg of whole, raw, unsalted almonds. If they were organic I would have chosen a sparkly font to write this, but at $9.99 a bag - I'll take it.
So there you have it. Hope this helps you navigate those aisles a little easier - cause holy dude - you've got to wear protection when you shop in there. Costco members are nuts.
