A Nutritionist’s Grocery List to Costco

Who likes to buy in bulk?! Whether you have a big family or you just hate running out of anything, Costco is the place to shop for things you need in high quantities, which includes a lot of our favorite foods! But how do you navigate the massive stores to find what you want, let alone what you didn’t even know to look for in the first place! Well, Weeknight Bite’s Lindsay Surowitz is here to help you navigate the warehouse style stores with ease and find the healthy options. Yes, Costco has healthy options!! She’s taken us through Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods too, but sometimes it’s better to buy your almonds in 10 pound bags, you know? Here’s the nutritionist’s grocery list to Costco so that next time you visit, you grab the right things, instead of being left with that giant case of mega muffins (we’ve been there).
