A lot of my buddies are weight lifters, figure competitors, and all around athletes – they need healthy food, and in serious quantity! While I can’t say a restaurant-sized mayo is on my list (nor can I quite figure out who – OTHER than a restaurant could use it), there are so many great options at stores of the Costco ilk.
For families who need to feed a lot of mouths, you can count on these kinds of stores to carry gargantuan spices too – things you will need on a daily basis, such as salt, pepper, and seasonings (giant plus – and kudos – for having the mineral-rich Himalayan pink salt also! They were ahead of the curve on this one, and I’m psyched they still carry it!
It definitely can save you a penny – or several – over time, so any of the more basic items are worth snagging there if you can. They had a ton of organic fruit, and the fish, poultry, and meat sections are ENORMOUS (you can always freeze what you won’t consume right away!)
Of course there is a plethora of other stuff as well – frozen veggies, frozen chicken, salmon burgers, shrimp, cartoned egg whites and organic eggs – it’s score city if you have a solid appetite OR just need more than what the regular supermarket has on hand. They even have salsa, hummus, turkey slices which, generally, aren’t the unhealthier ones – nice!
You can also find large-scale holiday paraphernalia while you’re out stocking up on food – always a blast. I’m not necessarily coming home with these private skeletons but…way to go, Costco, busting out the Halloween so early! YAAAHhHHHssSS! (Happy little (protein-eating) goth girl!)
