Baking and Cooking:
Thank you for sharing. It gives it a yummy flavor. It was my pleasure. Click here to learn more. Find a Costco near you. A couple organic whole chickens were slowly smoked and deliciously juicy. We use it mostly to sprinkle over our usual breakfast of Greek Yogurt.
It is just a couple dollars more for a pack of 3 than what I pay anywhere else for just one. I love their Pesto. I put it in small containers in usable amounts and freeze them. Take one out put it in cold water for about 15 minutes and its thawed and ready. Thanks so much for sharing! I love your site, it is my go to when I need a new recipe. My entire Thanksgiving meal this year came from your recipes.
When shopping in Costco I always buy a roasted chicken. I would love to see you do some recipes using the meat or soups with stock made from the bones.
Thanks for following Debbie! I will definitely keep your suggestion in mind! Great suggestions, thanks for sharing! Those are all great suggestions Lauren! Wow your price for sweetened condensed milk is amazing! Why are they allowed to Jack up prices before Christmas?
Both my husband and I are addicted to Costco. I get all your emails and enjoy them. We buy butter lettuce in Costco as well for our lettuce wraps ,yumm!!! I agree with all the choices with the exception of water bottles…. Please watch the video of the miles of plastic garbage floating in our oceans! People need to STOP buying plastic water bottles and using plastic bags, etc.
KathJo, the plastic floating on the ocean was disposed incorrectly. That is why a recycling is essential. We also buy at least 6 of the items on your Costco list. One big item we buy every week is their Finlandia Cheese Slices. We also love their Avocados and Kiwi. I am new subscriber and tried your Roasted Pork Tenderloin tonight. Next will be the Chicken Pesto Roll-ups. Those are great suggestions Jody! Thanks for following and sharing your thoughtful comments!
I am loving your easy to follow instructions and your happy face that makes it much easier to watch. I would like to get the Fooducate app you spoke about. I was not able to find it in the app store. Would you please help me find it? Thank you so much!! I have it for my iphone. I hope you love that salmon!! I like your writing style truly loving this website. The Best Rotisserie Chicken, mangoes, berries, and cheese.
Many thanks to everyone! Toilet paper, paper towels, Costco zyrtec and baby aspirin, glucerna, books, and the list goes on. Those are all great suggestions Cheryl! Daves Killer bread, Brussels sprouts and butternut squash. We like the frozen organic fruits and broccoli they are a freezer staple.
Fresh Avocados are always on the list they consistently have the best quality and price. I totally agree Joaquin! Thanks for sharing your suggestions with other readers! We consistently buy milk, Cheerios, coffee, Skinny Cow ice cream sandwiches summer only , eggs, butter freeze the extra , and we fill up the car at the gas pump.
Those are all great suggestions Katie! My friends call me the Costco Queen!! I wanted to suggest a way to get a sweet, juicy watermelon. The tip is from my husband, whose father and uncles grew lots of them. Look for the yellowish spot where the watermelon rested on the ground.
The larger the spot, the sweeter the watermelon. Also make sure the stem end is brown, not green which is desirable for grape stems. What a great tip Nichole! Thanks so much for sharing with other readers! I agree with all of your choices.
We buy the Kirkland brand of Zyrtec. No one else can come anywhere close. Also, one of my children has medical need for glucerna brand shakes. Those are all great suggestions Sarah!
I love Costco too. Our kids have grown and flew the nest but we still go there, we get most of the things you do, love the jar peaches in the winter, soaps of all varieties, roasted chicken is excellent and I make chicken broth from the remainder. Much success to you. Thanks for following and sharing your great suggestions with other readers! Yes, great suggestion Christine!
The best hands down. I buy plums in a bag, avocados, fresh peaches, and tomatoes, milk, eggs plus everthing you buy also. Those are all great suggestions! Thanks for sharing your suggestions with other readers Maxine! Thanks for sharing Olga! It was enough to make joining Costco again a no brainer. Just came home with four cases and made my membership fee back in one trip!
What a great suggestion! Thanks for sharing with other readers Courtney! We buy our Dog food at costco , the ingredients are that with some of the best competitors ingredients , the bag is huge and a great price! Even the vet recommended kirkland dog food. Also avocados , bananas, organic blueberries , and danimals!
Yes, those are all great suggestions! Thanks for sharing Melissa! I just discovered the avocado mayo, which is Amazing!!! You must try the Kirkland brand of microwave popcorn. What a great deal, thanks for the suggestion Kathy!
I have 6 people to feed…. I buy 2 rotisserie chickens and use the meat for one meal. Then I take what is left over bones and juices as well and throw them in a large pot to simmer. Then I take out all the meat and bones, add soup ingredients and spices and simmer. When the chicken is cooled enough I pull all the meat off and chop it up and add to the broth and veggies. I serve with a sandwich. Great for a summer meal as I get veggies in my son!!
It makes 2 chickens go for 2 meals. Such a smart idea. My sister told me about rottisserie chicken soup. Now i am making soup or broth from one fresh chicken and one rottisserie chickent leftover , cause everyone loves chicken breasts. I do this as well. The Kirkland plastic food wrap, it lasts forever. Thanks for sharing your suggestion with other readers Marcy! We never leave Costco without a bag of frozen chicken, toilet paper, paper towels, milk and eggs.
We have 4 children… ha! I like to buy at Costco some items too. My choices are mostly organic: I do not like their bakery, fruits, vegetables, fresh fish, and meat. I prefer to buy my organic food as fruits, vegetables, grains, almonds, chicken, wild fish, sea food, grass fed meat, bread at the farmers markets Whole Foods, Sprouts or others as they are more fresh and tastier. I like most of your recipes.
Thank you for sharing with us. Thank you for sharing your great suggestions! Buy Starbucks French roast coffee, bean and pods. Those are all great suggestions Mary Lou! I love their bags of fresh avocados for five or six bucks. Yes, great suggestion Marilee! Love Costco- I buy my cheese slices and our cheeses find it real good prices. Buy our berries and my multi-grain bun mmmm they are delicious.
And I get books there too and great deli products. My Costco shopping includes many of your choices such as the tortilla chips. It was mentioned about things from the spice aisle but specifically I want to mention Kirkland Garlic Powder and Kirkland Minced Onion.
These jars are the mother load…16 oz each. I use one or the other often for many recipes. My hope is that Costco never stops carrying either one.
Other must have super affordable staples are Jasmine Rice, Quaker Oats, and white granulated sugar. Yes, my hubby and I do use some white sugar…but mostly large affordable quantities are needed to feed the hummingbirds which live in my area all year around even in winter.
These are all great suggestions Myra! It was my pleasure. We love your recipe and sense of humor! And we buy everything at Costco they are the best!
Excellent salmon also for the beautiful recipes you have! Thank you so much for sharing! Thank you for following and sharing your thoughtful comments! Oh ya, thanks for sharing with other readers!
I love Costco, I buy all my meats there. Those are both great suggestions Adrianne! In your 20 things to buy at Cosco article you indicated you avoid MSG. It is a very inferior product. Hi Tom, I think they have different varieties and this one clearly states there is no MSG on the label. The one they sell at Costco I believe does have msg in it.
You do have to be careful! Those are great suggestions Gail! I always purchase the large bag of real bacon bits. And I just heard from a friend that they have pre-cooked wings now!
Apparently they rival KFC for taste, at a fraction of the price! Those sound like great additions! I bought one of those bags of bacon bits a while ago, and left it out on the counter.
Thank you for sharing that tip! We bought a pack. They are not precooked and take 20 minutes to cook, flipping once during cooking. They are pretty damn good. A great quick fix for a snack for the kids!
What gets lost in this discussion is practicality in this busy world of ours. If you CAN make a low-calorie whole food meal for all of your meals, then do it. No need for protein shakes. However, if you cannot, then protein shakes as meals would be a good option. You will want to get a protein shake that is high quality. I go with whey protein and sometimes egg white protein. I only get protein powder that is 3rd party tested.
Shoot for about 30 grams of protein at least in a shake. Here are some examples I use with my patients. I typically have them replace their worst meal or meals of the day in terms of calories:.
I will mention that dinner is the meal I least likely push to have a shake at for my patients. Sign up for my email course below to get updates on recipes. What about ready-to-drink shakes the ones you just shake and open the top and drink? My favorite brand is Premier at Costco. Join my Fat Loss Prescription Program where you learn how to lose fat and keep it off without counting calories or following a no carb diet.
I typically have them replace their worst meal or meals of the day in terms of calories: We had about 22 free samples which I am always happy to participate in such an adventure.
What a great deal! Your email address will not be published. Start your day with this deliciously easy Tropical Sunrise Berry Smoothie. Comments This is a great savings.
My dad is looking for ways to add more protein to his diet. These drinks look like a good idea. Son can use this. You will love them — the shakes are delicious! I have a pick-a-day free pass for Costco. I will pick a day while these are still on sale.
This is a good savings. The Tropical Sunrise smoothie sounds really good. Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
