Nutritionist's Guide to Costco

Big box stores might not be your first thought when it comes to purchasing healthy food. But these days retailers are keeping up with the demand for better options. I recently went shopping at my local Costco to see what I could find. My strategy when shopping big box stores is that I want to find things that don’t contain inflammatory oils. I want to find things that we know will be beneficial for our bodies. I want to find organics and products that are gluten and dairy free. Here is a list of what I grabbed from my recent haul to Costco in Northern Virginia.

If you’re sick of the food industry and the diet food product industry like I am, I would love to help you navigate what foods you should actually be consuming. I co-authored a book, Primal Eating, and I would love to hear what you think about it. Inside the book we dispell myths, nutrition dogma and give you actionable advice. I’m so proud of it and I hope you enjoy it too!

What are your family favorites from Costco? I’d love to hear from you. Simply drop a comment below!
