Costco's BEST Healthy Options

Costco.. the mecca of oversize and over portioned food, gadgets, TVs, tupperware, samples... you name it.

Some people loathe Costco because it can be hard to get in and out of. However, I LOVE Costco! And not because I can't go in without spending at least $100 BUT because I love samples.

But as stated above, its hard to get in and out of Costco without spending minimum of $100.... but that money is going to waste if you are buying crappy unhealthy food.

Costco plays with my emotions. It has healthy options, then it has every cheat meal I could ever dream of. Did you guys see the BROWNIE brittle? I died a little inside.

But let's talk about the healthy options there....

My TOP 10 Favorite Healthy options at Costco:

  • Almond Blueberry Crisps-- YUM! An awesome blend of brown rice, almonds, and  blueberries. Sweet enough and perfect as a quick snack! 

  • Wholly Guacamole 4 pack-- a MUST in my house! I use guac on just about everything, eggs, sandwiches, salads, whatever I can put it on! 

  • Chobani Greek Yogurt variety pack - Need a quick easy snack or breakfast side? This is my GOT TO! I love the peach flavor in this pack! 

  • Seeds of Change (brown rice and quinoa packets)- LOVE this! Throw in the microwave for 90 seconds and you have some bomb rice! I LOVE these, I only use maybe half a packet per meal and it's so EASY! 

  • ALL natural ORGANIC Peanut Butter 2 pack-- Organic and all it has is peanuts! But it tastes amazing. Perfect for my Shakeology! 

  • Kirkland Albacore Tuna- packed in water and it's albacore, as well as dolphin friendly. Easy to make for lunch (tip: mix tuna with guac vs. mayo--healthy fats vs bad processed fats)

  • ICE Water-- if you are trying to ween yourself off soda, well I have good news--this is a GREAT product to switch to. And it's with carbonated water! I indulge here and there! 

  • Giant bag of Frozen blueberries or berry medley- LOVE this stuff! LASTS forever too, I love to throw in my Shakeology or other smoothies, on top of pancakes, in yogurt, or in oatmeal! 

  • Coconut Oil-unfiltered and cold pressed--you can use coconut oil for so many purposes: lotion, hair masks, makeup remover, it goes on and on. 

  • Organic Quinoa-- the great thing about quinoa, it's a COMPLETE protein which means it has all NINE essential amino acids. So eat up, you gotta eat good to look good! 

Welp, there ya have it! Shop on peeps! 


  1. Do you not buy produce at Costco? Maybe its because we are a household of 8 v a household of 1-2 but I go to Costco weekly and rarely go down the aisles. I head straight for meat/dairy/produce.

  2. This is highly informatics, crisp and clear. I think that everything has been described in systematic manner so that reader could get maximum information and learn many things. dumbbell reviews
