Sometimes the healthiest product options at grocery stores can be expensive, but if you’re able to buy in bulk it can be very cost-efficient to shop at places like Costco or Sam’s Club. Costco is one of our favorite places to get high quality #TrashPandaApproved products at a reasonable price, so this week we’re doing a roundup of some of our favorite Costco products. We know available products can vary by region, so head over to Instagram and let us know your favorite Costco purchases in your area!
Purely Elizabeth Granola
Purely Elizabeth is one of our favorite brands at Trash Panda, and this grain-free granola is next level. With tons of seeds, almond butter and MCT oil, it’s a great salty/sweet combination that we can’t help but eat right out of the bag.
Kirkland Organic Almond and Peanut Butter
We feature these a lot on Trash Panda, but that’s because we can’t get enough of them! They only have 2 ingredients - organic almonds or peanuts and salt - and that’s our favorite kind of nut butter.
Garofalo Organic Pasta Variety Pack
It doesn’t get any better than organic pasta made with just organic wheat! We love that this brand comes in a variety pack of multiple shapes too.
Rao’s Homemade Pasta Sauce
Unlike some other pasta sauces out there, Rao’s is made with only simple ingredients and no added sugar. Sold in two big jars at Costco, it is a pantry staple for us.
Organic Hemp Hearts and Chia Seeds
These products can be expensive in most grocery stores, so we love that Costco has great options. We love to make chia seed jam, and toss the hemp hearts onto salads or smoothies.
Simple Mills Almond Flour Crackers
These gluten-free crackers are so crunchy and salty, and have zero harmful or questionable ingredients in the Trash Panda App! They go FAST in our house, so luckily the box from Costco comes with two bags inside.
We love using this as a protein boost in smoothies, or spreading it onto apples as a snack. Another hack is to mix it with peanut butter to get the best combination of protein + fat!
Birch Benders Pancake and Waffle Mix
This Birch Benders pancake mix has 0 potentially harmful or questionable ingredients! We love to take it with us on trips, since you only need to add water to whip these up. They’re also great for a quick weekday breakfast, and go great with Kirkland’s brand of high quality pure maple syrup!
We hope you can find some of these great options at your local Costco on your next grocery haul. The more Trash Pandas who buy these products in-store, the more likely that they’ll stick around. We’d love to hear what #TrashPandaApproved products you find at your local store!
