Grocery Haul: Costco Edition

In the past year, Costco has become one of my favorite grocery stores. There are several items that I love buying there for their quality and price.

I’ve noticed an increase in keto friendly options/brands as well as lots of overall healthy options.

Here’s what’s often on my Costco list:

Fresh Fruits & Vegetables

  • Organic Bananas: they’re always just almost ripe when they get delivered and that’s just how I like them.
  • Organic blueberries: never mushy, always super flavorful!
  • Organic cucumbers: great quality and much better price than other grocery stores.
  • Organic greens: If I don’t get them from the farmers market, I like to get spring mix and spinach at Costco for the price.
  • Organic apples: best price I’ve seen unless they’re on a Prime Deal at Whole Foods
  • Avocados: Costco has the best avocados. They’re large and always green inside.
  • Limes: They come in 5lb bags and they’re usually large and smooth skinned- perfect for margaritas!
  • Clementines: Perfect for kids’ lunches.

Frozen Fruit

  • All of the frozen berries are a great price compared to other stores. We like the organic blueberries from Whole Foods better but we like the price at Costco.
  • Frozen Avocado! Great for smoothies!
  • Frozen Mango

Keto Essentials

  • Kerrygold Butter! The best price I’ve seen for this grass-fed butter. I stock up when it’s on sale and end up paying around $3 per pack of two sticks.
  • Lakanto Sweetener: My favorite keto friendly sweetener (monkfruit) at my favorite price!
  • Avocado Oil: For high temperature cooking.
  • Organic Olive Oil
  • Organic Coconut Oil
  • Nuts: We buy all of their raw nuts, pecans being my recent favorite.

Other Essentials

  • Himalayan Salt: Already in a grinder. Score!
  • Honey: Best price, great quality.
  • Maple Syrup: Like the honey, best price, great quality.
  • Almond Milk: Organic, low carb and shelf stable until opened.
  • “Paleo Bars”: A great, clean snack without junk ingredients, not low carb.
  • Organic Apple Sauce: Perfect for school lunches. I also buy the Costco brand apple sauce pouches.
  • Sparkling water cans
  • Water jugs/bottles
  • Pirate’s Booty: For boat days and school snacks.
  • Siete Brand Chips: These are not always available but their my favorite grain free chips to buy when they have them!
  • Late July Chips: When I need Chips and they don’t have Siete, I get these.
  • Organic Almond Butter: No junk ingredients. Great price.
  • Eggs: When I don’t get them from my local farmer, I get these. They’re organic and free range and affordable.


  • Ice Cream: Costco has THE BEST vanilla ice cream. Seriously. Do yourself a favor and try it. Then add some…
  • Chocolate Chips: Costco also has the best chocolate chips! They’re so creamy. A total non-keto indulgence that’s worth every bite.
  • Keto Ice Cream Bars: These are so good, you’ll forget they’re keto!

Ok, I think that’s it! What do you like to buy at Costco?
