Are you as crazy over Costco grocery shopping as I am? You’re in the right place! I put together a Whole30 Costco shopping guide and list for you to see all the Whole30 compliant and Whole30 approved meat, seafood, pantry staples, condiments, and more for your shopping list at Costco, complete with the ingredients and price of each item!
Whole30 Grocery Shopping Info
I say this often, but just please remember — Your groceries don’t have to be organic, non-gmo, plastic free, freshly picked, and kissed by a unicorn. Of course, all of those options are wonderful, but it’s not feasible for most of us.
Choose your groceries based on what you can afford and what’s available, and keep it moving .
Remember, ALL fruits, veggies, nuts, meat, eggs, and seafood are compliant, as long as they don’t have anything non-compliant added to it. So the .89 cent/dozen eggs are TOTALLY compliant, and the regular ground beef is cool too!
One other helpful tip: Focus on what you can have, instead of what you cannot. A huge variety of real foods are available to us here in the US, even when we’re on a budget, and that’s quite a privilege.
Most importantly, always check and double check your ingredients labels to make sure your groceries are Whole30 compliant!
