To say life has been busy would be an understatement. Since I got back from Denver a few weeks ago, life has been nonstop. This past weekend we finally had the chance to make a much needed Costco run and we came back with a few goodies.
1. Organic Coconut Oil
In my opinion, Carrington Farms makes the best coconut oil. The price at Costco can’t be beat! I’ve been using this brand for almost two years now and I based on it’s quality/price, I don’t think I’ll ever use another brand. I use this for cooking and beauty projects (like this or this).
2. Orgain Chocolate Plant Protein
If you’re already someone who uses plant protein, you’ll appreciate this brand. It actually tastes good. So good, that Matt will drink it without complaining. It’s a lot creamier than my Garden of Life protein and the flavor is great.
3. Rojo’s Organic Salsa
This was an impulse purchase. They were sampling it with edamame chips (also amazing) and we purchased it since we were going to a BBQ at my parents house. It’s fresh and delicious. I would definitely buy it again if we were having a get together or felt like we could eat 3lbs of salsa fairly quickly.
4. Seeds of Change Brown & Red Rice
We don’t usually buy prepackaged grains BUT this was too good to pass up. Not only was it on sale, with a nearly empty pallet, the Costco employee who was restocking nearby vouched for it. I’ll give you an update once we try it.
5. Organic Tomato Sauce
I think it’s good to have tomato sauce on hand to use as a base in Indian vegetable dishes, Italian and Mexican dishes. And since we’re big fans of all three this seemed like a good purchase. I made a really delicious one pot Mexican rice with tomato sauce and that was on my mind when I put this into our cart. Lots of Mexican rice is on the horizon.
6. Fresh Fruit
Costco has so much amazing fresh fruit right now. I wanted to buy it all but walked away with two pineapples and a bag of Cara Cara oranges (I’m obsessed with them). Since we snack on fruit quite a bit these days, it’s always nice to find it at a good price.
Your turn: favorite Costco buy? Do you like wholesale stores or would you rather shop small scale?
