10 organic reasons to shop at Costco

It takes a visit to three, sometimes four, different grocers to stock my healthy kitchen. I know I am not alone. And, no offense to Costco, but it is the least favorite out of the bunch. Perhaps it’s the parking lot, maybe it’s the tempting gift cards, or the fact that I have to pay $50 a year to walk through the checkout line. For whatever reason, a visit to Costco feels like a drag. But, for all my griping, I must say, they are increasingly offering more and more organic foods. Even if it weren’t for needing diapers and wipes, I would still hit Costco for the bargain priced organic (and wild caught) goods.

While the Costco stock varies from store to store and month to month, I can always count on a few great deals on good quality (organic, wild caught and/or local) goods. Today, I found everything I was searching for, with exception for organic peppers.

There are many more organic items at Costco than I mention here (olive oil, quinoa, milk, butter, cheese, etc). These are my staples. What are yours? I am still waiting for organic almond meal to show up at some point. Fingers crossed.

    I adore Costco because of their large selection of organic items. I try and shop local as much as possible but for a lot of bulk items and grains I go to Costco.

    Our Costco in Sacramento used to group all the organic items together in one section, which I LOVED. Our SB Costco doesn’t do this which bums me out. Does the OC one group organic? Seems like it makes the whole shopping process so much easier!

      No grouping at my Costco either. That would be convenient though. How is is it settling back into SB?

    I eye that smoked salmon often but have never actually bought it. How do you eat yours, friend?

      I am thinking smoked salmon and spinach omelette for a quick dinner solution.
