Can you do Paleo at Costco? I asked myself that question when the receipts from Whole Foods started adding up. Paleo is expensive. Organic, grass fed, fresh, 100% natural all add $$ to the price of food. The benefits are worth it, but hopefully there are some budget friendly options. Well, here is what I found at Costco. I didn’t realize it before, probably because I was never looking for it, but all of the organic foods at Costco have a green highlighter mark on the description sign. That makes life a little easier, but the difficulty is finding very many of them. The things we did find to be good deals and Paleo were:
1lb tub of Taylor Farms Organic Spring Mix salad greens for $5.99. About twice as much lettuce as Whole Foods for the same price.
54oz tub of Carrington Farms Coconut Oil for $15.99. This is $19.99 at WF. I hope this tub lasts a while.
Organic Chicken Breasts for $5.99/ lb. These are $8.99/ lb at WF, but I think the WF chicken tastes better.
Pure Nature Organic Broccoli Florets (frozen) 64 oz for $5.99. Not sure what this would cost at WF, but it would be at lease twice that amount. We are going to be swimming in broccoli recipes for a while.
Bulk nuts… almonds were a really good deal, but I already threw away the receipt and can’t remember the price.
I think we will do a fairly regular trip to Costco to restock. I am going to start checking out the local produce markets as well. Update: Weight is at 190.4 lbs and seems to have leveled out here. My goal is 185 lbs, so I expect to hit that as I get out and run more. Energy levels and attitude are amazing!
