Costco's Gone Paleo & Beyond: 100+ Recommended Buys, including Beyond Bacon and a GIVEAWAY!

While there are plenty of negative news stories circulating daily on the downward spiral of our nation’s health, there are many positive changes that we see happening both in our own backyard, in states across the U.S. and in neighboring regions as well. From gluten-free options at national chains and amusement parks, to a paleo section at the Whole Foods hot bar, and now national grocery stores (both big and small) are not only supporting organic farmers and vendors, but dedicating entire sections of their store to sustainable and healthy options to help inform their customers!

Costco has been selling organic produce for a long time, and has been quietly surprising their customers with more and more paleo/primal options found throughout their store. In recent months they have made their support for organic fare all the more clear and known by labeling all organic options with green, very visible labels. And beyond the items labeled organic, there is a wealth of sustainable and healthy products and resources. In fact, we have been seeing paleo cookbooks on their book table for years, long before the word paleo was even mainstream.

That large table in the center of Costco has become somewhat of a coveted spot for authors. In addition to waiting for news regarding placement on the New York Times Best Sellers list, many authors wait for news on whether or not they will be carried by Costco. You may remember that this last fall we received some big Costco news when we found out that our third book, Real Life Paleo, became available in Costco stores throughout Canada. And what a massive moment that was when I went to Canada and saw our third book baby there on those tables in Costco, accessible to so many people whom we had hoped to share our message with. After all, it has always been our dream to share our learnings with the masses – to provide “regular families” with a tool to change their health the way that we were able to change ours!

Costco's Gone Paleo & Beyond: 100+ Recommended Buys, including Beyond Bacon and a GIVEAWAY!

And then it happened again – this last week we received news that our second book, Beyond Bacon, AS OF TODAY will now be available in Costco stores across the U.S. (insert very loud squee here)!!!! Beyond Bacon holds a very special place in our hearts. While we love all of our books, Beyond Bacon is our serenade to all the things we love about food – amazingly rich flavor combinations, beautiful presentation, pasture raised flavor and quality, and eating in a way that is both sustainable to your health, wallet, and the eco-system!

So this past weekend as we headed to Costco (as we often do on the weekends – hello family of five with three active, growing boys!) to stock up on our usual favorites, we approached the book table with breaths held in the hopes that there our pork-loving baby would be. And oh my lard – THERE IT WAS!

Costco's Gone Paleo & Beyond: 100+ Recommended Buys, including Beyond Bacon and a GIVEAWAY!

You better believe it that we signed as many copies as we could!! If you are in the NoVa area, be sure to grab a signed copy from the Costco in Fairfax! And to everyone else in the U.S. be sure to grab your copy of Beyond Bacon – available now!

While you are there, we highly encourage you to check out the items labeled in green so you can see all the many affordable organic options that Costco so wonderfully provides. And if you are curious to know what we put in our cart and recommend to others, check out our full list below, complete with printable shopping guides!

Finally, we are looking at setting up some signings at other Costco stores across the U.S. If you would like us to visit your hometown leave us a comment and tell us where we should go!

Costco Collage Home Section

Home Section

  1. Beyond Bacon!!♥!♥!♥!!
  2. Ello Glass Water Bottles
  3. Snap Top Reusable Glass Containers
  4. Compostable, Recycled Material Paper Plates (for paleo potlucks!)

Costco Meat and Refrigerated Section

Meat & Refrigerated Section

Our local store is rather small and doesn’t have fresh grass-fed beef or lamb or pastured pork – but may large stores (especially West Coast locations in America), so make sure to ask your butcher shop!

  1. Fresh Organic Chicken
  2. Fresh Organic Beef
  3. Fresh Wild Caught Tuna
  4. Fresh Wild Caught Salmon
  5. Fresh Wild Caught Tilapia
  6. Fresh Wild Caught Cod
  7. Fresh Wild Caught Scallops
  8. Fresh Wild Caught Lobster
  9. Salmon with Basil Pesto Butter or with Pesto and Pistachios (prepared in-house)
  10. Bacon (ours doesn’t have any great brand, but some locations carry clean paleo-friendly brands)
  11. Hot Dogs (ours doesn’t have any great brand, but some locations carry clean paleo-friendly brands)
  12. Uncured Ham
  13. Smoked Salmon
  14. Prosciutto
  15. Aidell’s Chicken Sausage
  16. Cuisine Solution Sliced Beef
  17. Kerrygold Grassfed Butter and Cheese

Costco Fresh Produce

Fresh Produce

Even our small store carries SO much fresh produce, in both the open air, dedicated cold fridge, and even the area by meats and cheeses. Just consider the dirty dozen and clean fifteen list. We consistently find that Costco has the best prices on:

  1. Love Beets
  2. Fresh Organic Salsa
  3. Organic Spring Mix Salad
  4. Parisian Salad (we skip the croutons and use our own dressing)
  5. Sweet Kale Salad (we skip the croutons and use our own dressing)

Costco Frozen Section

Frozen Foods

We find the key to success with paleo is planning ahead. Filling our freezer full of healthy meats and vegetables means that we never have an excuse that “there’s no food in the house”. These frozen foods are favorites in our house, especially the Jones sausages – which the boys are able to microwave themselves (and may or may not be the fantastic reason we get to sleep in a bit more on the weekends):

  1. Jones Sausage
  2. Organic Wild Berries
  3. Shrimp
  4. Various Cuts of Chicken (like wings, breasts, tenders)
  5. Wild Caught Salmon
  6. Wild Caught Cod
  7. Wild Caught Flounder
  8. Wild Caught Mahi Mahi
  9. Wild Caught Mackerel
  10. Duck
  11. Baby Peas
  12. Normandy Veggies (broccoli, cauliflower, carrots)

Costco Eggs and Dairy

Dairy Section

Unfortunately our store doesn’t carry any grass-fed dairy, other than the Kerrygold in the meat section – but, we can find Silk Almond Milk there (noted below in not paleo list).

  1. Organic Eggs
  2. Naked Smoothies

Costco Collage Pantry and Snacks

Pantry Items & Snacks

It had been a long while since I weaved my way up and down the entire Costco store, looking at all of the foods they offer – and then reading ingredients lists. I am extremely pleased to tell you, that past the processed food there are seemingly endless paleo-friendly items in just my small local store! The kids love getting fruit in cups and apple squeezers while Matt and I love all the affordable basics, like nuts and dried fruit for trail mix snacks and baking needs. If it’s been a while for you, too, we highly encourage you to spend the hour or two it takes to fully look at all the things you may be interested and read the ingredients, we think you’ll be pleasantly surprised!

Costco Collage Pantry Fruit Nuts

  1. Organic Power Nut Mix
  2. Beef Jerky
  3. Cashews

Costco's Gone Paleo & Beyond: 100+ Recommended Buys, including Beyond Bacon and a GIVEAWAY!

Non-Paleo,  but we buy it:

So, the 80/20 rule applies here… although, since these are 10 items out of a 100+ item list, that’s actually even better odds at 90/10. Technically, these items aren’t paleo – but our not-paleo-perfectionist household sometimes buy some of them… and thought we should mention these are better options than their alternatives that we find to be worth a splurge!

  1. Udi’s Gluten-Free bread (bakery)
  2. Rotisserie Chicken (meat)
  3. Good Food’s Cranberry Almond Chicken Salad (fridge)
  4. Salmon Burgers (frozen)
  5. Almond Milk: Silk (in the fridge) and Almond Breeze Unsweetened Vanilla (shelf-stable)
  6. Skinny Pop Popcorn (big bag or snack bags)
  7. Pamela’s Gluten-Free Baking Mix (pantry)
  8. Bark Thins Fair-Trade Chocolate Almond Coconut Bark (snacks)
  9. Annie’s Bunny Fruit Snacks (snacks)
  10. Kirkland Brand Cashew Clusters (snacks)

To celebrate this very wonderful news our publisher, Victory Belt, has partnered with us to sponsor a giveaway where one lucky winner will win a Costco Membership or Gift Card ($55 value) and one copy of each of our books, Eat Like a Dinosaur, Beyond Bacon and Real Life Paleo.

a Rafflecopter giveaway

We’ll pick and announce the winner in one week – we will both announce the name on this post and email the individual drawn! 

Remember Matt’s rules of giveaways!

  1. Please use a valid email address when entering. I cannot use my dowsing rods to attempt to find which bytes form your contact address!
  2. Please follow all the rules so I don’t get frustrated by invalid entries. Nothing makes more of a sad panda than picking a winner who I have to disqualify.
  3. Please respond within 48 hours or I will have to pick a new winner! I have a certain set of skills that make me a nightmare to people who don’t respond: the ability to randomly draw again.
  4. Please be a US resident. My mana is too low to cast a Teleportation Spell!

    Well you just made me realize how much a Costco membership will be worthwhile. I’ve been debating getting one since my mom got me a Sams club membership last summer, but besides a couple of items, I really can’t buy much there that sticks to my guidelines, very slim pickings in terms of organic produce (or any decent produce), and meats as well. So Costco membership, here I come!

  • Elizabeth

    Oh, I need to make an effort to find the nearest Costco!

  • Danielle C

    Love the list! Thank you!! My closest Costco is 3.5 hours away in El Paso, Texas – and yes, I do go about once a month. I spend 3 months a year in Austin, Texas so that would probably be more bang for your buck iykwim.

    Costco is a great place to stock up on a lot of paleo food items like produce, the cookbooks and a few other paleo friendly finds like organic coconut oil and Maranatha almond butter. Unfortunately, many items on this list are not paleo at all, so be sure to read every label. The dried fruits all have added sugar, as does all the jerky. Peas are legumes, so not paleo. Yogurt? Nope. And while the beef and chicken are organic, they are not grass-fed or grain free raised. While its understandable that paleo shouldn’t be 100% strict and so many confusing food misnomers and information out there, we should try to not make it more confusing by endorsing false claims.

    I’ve never shopped at Costco but I’ve seen so many Paleo peeps recommend it that I’d love a membership!

  • Jasmine

    I’m gluten free and saw the items in your Costco shopping cart and I purchased a few of them last month! Too funny, glad I’m on the right track for GF & Paleo 🙂

    I appreciate you posting this list including the “non-paleo” foods and maybe the “less than paleo” foods. Its reassuring to me knowing that others also buy things like uids, and Bunny gummies for the kiddos, as well as the organic meat and what not (recognizing its not grass fed). Sometimes, you just need to do what works best for your and your family, which might not always be strict paleo.

    Thanks for this list! I used it this weekend, but you would think a Costco in Eugene, Oregon, of all places, would have more grass-fed stuff. I did slow down and find a few extra random things I hadn’t seen before.
    One tiny tidbit of advice. My Costco does sell the Wholly Mole Guac, but only in the big containers. My toddler loooves eating that stuff right outta the single serve packs when we buy them, but the cost is too much, especially compared to Costco’s price for the three big ones. She can’t eat through those big containers fast enough (And i prefer a different kind of guac) to not have them go bad. I decided to open one and freeze small portions in some silicone cups and then empty them into a bag for grab-n-go guac. I’m quite pleased with myself for thinking of this. I should trademark grab-n-go guac! But your post inspired me to think beyond what I normally do, so thanks to you, too!
