How To Choose, Use & Store Protein Powder for Preppers
Thanks for your help. We have been memberrs of Costco since one opened up in Roseville, Michigan. N K August 9, I believe that discrimination and no equal opportunity is being implemented in that working place. I'll poke around and see if I can find it. Then another cashier from another line went and got it for me and was very polite. Click here to cancel reply.

When the chicken is cooled enough I pull all the meat off and chop it up and add to the broth and veggies. I serve with a sandwich. Great for a summer meal as I get veggies in my son!! It makes 2 chickens go for 2 meals. Such a smart idea. My sister told me about rottisserie chicken soup. Now i am making soup or broth from one fresh chicken and one rottisserie chickent leftover , cause everyone loves chicken breasts.

I do this as well. The Kirkland plastic food wrap, it lasts forever. Thanks for sharing your suggestion with other readers Marcy! We never leave Costco without a bag of frozen chicken, toilet paper, paper towels, milk and eggs. We have 4 children… ha! I like to buy at Costco some items too. My choices are mostly organic: I do not like their bakery, fruits, vegetables, fresh fish, and meat. I prefer to buy my organic food as fruits, vegetables, grains, almonds, chicken, wild fish, sea food, grass fed meat, bread at the farmers markets Whole Foods, Sprouts or others as they are more fresh and tastier.

I like most of your recipes. Thank you for sharing with us. Thank you for sharing your great suggestions! Buy Starbucks French roast coffee, bean and pods. Those are all great suggestions Mary Lou! I love their bags of fresh avocados for five or six bucks. Yes, great suggestion Marilee!

Love Costco- I buy my cheese slices and our cheeses find it real good prices. Buy our berries and my multi-grain bun mmmm they are delicious. And I get books there too and great deli products. My Costco shopping includes many of your choices such as the tortilla chips.

It was mentioned about things from the spice aisle but specifically I want to mention Kirkland Garlic Powder and Kirkland Minced Onion. These jars are the mother load…16 oz each. I use one or the other often for many recipes. My hope is that Costco never stops carrying either one. Other must have super affordable staples are Jasmine Rice, Quaker Oats, and white granulated sugar. Yes, my hubby and I do use some white sugar…but mostly large affordable quantities are needed to feed the hummingbirds which live in my area all year around even in winter.

These are all great suggestions Myra! It was my pleasure. We love your recipe and sense of humor! And we buy everything at Costco they are the best! Excellent salmon also for the beautiful recipes you have! Thank you so much for sharing! Thank you for following and sharing your thoughtful comments! Oh ya, thanks for sharing with other readers! I love Costco, I buy all my meats there.

Those are both great suggestions Adrianne! In your 20 things to buy at Cosco article you indicated you avoid MSG. It is a very inferior product. Hi Tom, I think they have different varieties and this one clearly states there is no MSG on the label. The one they sell at Costco I believe does have msg in it. You do have to be careful! Those are great suggestions Gail!

I always purchase the large bag of real bacon bits. And I just heard from a friend that they have pre-cooked wings now! Apparently they rival KFC for taste, at a fraction of the price! Those sound like great additions!

I bought one of those bags of bacon bits a while ago, and left it out on the counter. Thank you for sharing that tip! We bought a pack. They are not precooked and take 20 minutes to cook, flipping once during cooking. They are pretty damn good. A great quick fix for a snack for the kids! I used them for my orange peel chicken and it was awesome. Actually, the tenders are made by Tyson. Never leave without one or two of their rotisserie chickens!

Those are so delicious! I buy many of those sane staples, plus: It has unhealthy fats in it, so I make my own with their avocado oil and eggs. Those are all great suggestions Melanie! Please tell me how to make the mayo with avocado oil and eggs. My husband eats so much mayo, I really need to make a healthy one for him. Thanks for your help. The quality of their meats is much better than supermarkets Organic milk Eggs Seasonal produce always very good Bananas Almond butter!!! Their meats are just top notch!

Thanks for sharing your suggestions! Those are all great suggestions Lina! All the staples for homemade everything! I just bought the traeger pellet BBQ and used my Costco annual rebate to get it!!

A couple organic whole chickens were slowly smoked and deliciously juicy. Aussie Bites and Premier Protein shakes. Great idea Jackie, thanks for sharing!! We buy everything food that we possibly can at Costco especially organic items. Fresh baby spinach, baby kale, asparagus, organic lemons, baby romaine- the list goes on! Nobody beats Costco prices or quality.

Those are all great Costco bargains! Thank you Natasha for sharing this info. That helps a lot. I do not have a Casco membership now. But I need to get one now. Love their Parmesan Asiago bagels, wine, and Kirkland brand Vitamin water. Those are great additions! Those are great additions Jennifer! Chicken broth — not as good as homemade but as good a substitute as you can find at a store.

These are all good items to grab at Costco! I use it for everything.. I realized that recently and stopped buying it as well. Natasha, How did find out about hidden GMO? And what do you use instead? Our favorite items we buy all the time: Everytime i go to Costco, my list includes: The other things would be whats in sale at the moment and if i need it. We also buy izze beverages for my husband he loves those and organic honest juice for our toddler the only juice that isnt sweetened w thousands calories..

Those are some great suggestions Olga! Regular purchases at Costco are, water bottles, organic eggs, milk, organic hamburger, apples, oranges, cucumbers, romaine hearts, beef tenderloin, roasted chicken and butter. Thank you for sharing your suggestions Becky!! Holiday- Pumpkin cheesecake, electronics. We watch the prices and compare them often. We go weekly and fill up on of the cars tanks. How about meat and fish, organic milk? Wraps, chicken pot pie, chicken and dumplings, make stock from the bones no waste!

Did you know that many of the pickles sold were made in India? I quit buying them and learned how to make them myself! No I did not know that! Make sure to get the whole ones though, not the sliced or diced. Thanks for the tip!! Thanks for sharing your list! The dreaded Costco receipt! Do not by the kirkland cheddar cheese is tast sour. Did you have that experience more than once? I purchased a super salty block of Mozzarella there once but it only happened once thankfully!

Costco is our favorite family store especially for kids. I have 10 daughters — future cookers. I like to buy Rustic bread thee because it is bigger loaf then at Winco and same price. Also we buy snacks for our kids. Thank you for sharing your Costco faves! Great to hear you love Costco! Pretty much we buy everything you buy. Someone was talking about hamalayan salt. That is true that this is the most affordable salt of all good salts out there on a market.

I have been using Hamalayan salt for many years, I try to stay away from Morton salt. Sea salt is also good but not as much as Hamalayan, due to it being collected from sea, and now days sea is no that clean as we all know.

Also I like to buy daisy sour cream and Korean jerky. The second store we like to shop at is ALDI. Aldi store is an a German owned supermarket. Love the canned salmon! I make kotleti- saute the onions first.

Anything with the Costco name is of great quality! Hi Natasha, another Costco fan here in Georgia! Hefty disposable plates, Kirkland brand paper towel and toilet paper and napkins. Laundry detergent, softener, dishwasher soap. We love Costco, too! The quality is so much better than we expected. We get the extra light olive oil by the ton, and always get canned salmon, bagged garlic, the store brand beef jerky, canned cat food and kettle chips. They had the sliced light Jarlsberg for a long time and then suddenly discontinued it last winter, which crushed me.

But they suddenly had it again last weekend! Their snack aisle rules. My mom loves it when I get her a bag of the dried young coconut strips, and we love checking what they rotate in and out. Thanks for the list! The Spam gave me a bit of a turn, but I was able to recover. Thank you for sharing your awesome list! Traditional carb heavy dishes like oatmeal and mashed potatoes are another good place to use it. Take a look at your long term storage food preps, many of which may be freeze dried and stored in canisters.

US Nuclear Target Map. I like to use dietary yeast. Thanks for the heads up on this. In my 68 years I have only related whey protein powder and others as something the body builders would be taking on a regular basis. This definitely has me rethinking prep plans for the future.

Hi there, you can purchase protein powder just about anywhere. You first need to decide whether you want plan t or animal based protein powder. Then, make a trip to walmart or Costco or any large grocery store and you will find lots of choices. If you want to make shakes buy the flavor that is your favorite. I keep both on hand. The best protein powder a person can buy is from Zurvita.

It is all natural. Comes in chocolate or vanilla. Can be used as a snack or a meal. Notify me for more info. Granted, there is a slim chance that Nestle is trying to get involved with something good for a change , but the higher probability is that they are not…. Your e-mail address will not be published.

Monday, January 4, Survive your Whole30 with Costco!

Happy New Year Everyone! Whether you are just finishing day 4 of your first ever Whole30, this is your 5th Whole30 or you're sitting there thinking "Whole what??? The first book, It Starts With Food explains what the Whole30 is, why it works and provides science-based evidence about the program. I have not seen this book for sale at Costco for some time now but you can find it for a similar price on amazon.

The second Whole30 book The Whole Fortunately Costco carries a multitude of organic foods! Your sources for protein while doing Whole30 come entirely from animal sources.

With that said, here are all the delicious Whole30 meats, poultry, eggs and seafood you can buy at Costco. Costco even carries juicy lamb chops and lamb rib roast - both imported from Australia. Ground turkey is great for making "tacos," stuffed peppers, turkey burgers and more. Coleman's Organic Chicken from Costco is a staple in our household. Luckily thanks to Costco's awesome prices, 2 dozen organic cage-free eggs are totally affordable.

On the west coast I have seen pre-cooked hard boiled eggs at Costco which I am totally jealous of, but if you see them at your Costco be sure to check the label to make sure they are not cooked with any noncompliant ingredients! When it comes to frozen shrimp, Costco has tons of options. Choose from cooked or raw in several different sizes. The numbers on the bags indicate approximately how many shrimp you get per pound.

Higher numbers like indicates tiny shrimp - perfect for salads - and smaller numbers like indicate much larger shrimp.

Kirkland Signature frozen raw sea scallops are another delicious seafood option. I try not to eat too much tuna, but I love making tuna boats occasionally for lunch. Not only is it Whole30 compliant, it's Kosher to boot! Minimally processed Whole30 compliant foods do exist and can be found at Costco! Though processed, all ingredients are Whole30 compliant and these sausages go with pretty much anything. Butternut squash is so tasty but such a pain to peel, remove seeds and chop that I nearly jumped for joy when I found this organic chopped butternut squash at Costco.

Pick some up today and try roasting it! I wish I could find organic bell peppers at Costco but at these prices I still buy conventional bell peppers quite frequently. I never see green bell peppers at any of my Costcos. Whether you prefer fresh broccoli or frozen broccoli, Costco has you covered. Mushrooms are kind of like my new best friend - I try to add them to everything.

Green, leafy vegetables are so good for you and I just love making spinach salads with the organic baby spinach. I buy the romaine hearts and use them as "taco shells" or wraps for tuna or chicken salad, the organic spring mix for other salads, and chopped kale in frittatas.

Although as you can see, or not see I guess, I forgot to take a picture of the bag of kale! I've decided that all vegetables are better if you roast them - even asparagus and brussels sprouts. I love chopped celery in chicken salad and chicken soup and nothing is more refreshing to me than ice cold cucumber water. If your family really likes carrots the 10 lb bag may be right for you, otherwise stick with the slightly more reasonable 5 lb bag of organic mini carrots.

Ten and eight pound bags of onions may be a little much even if your entire family is doing Whole30 so it might be a good idea to split these with a friend or your mother. They literally go with everything and every meal. You can even cut them into thick disks to make "buns " for burgers and other sandwiches. I prefer fresh vegetables but it's nice to have some canned goods on hand just in case. Costco has a good selection of Whole30 compliant canned vegetables like mushrooms, green beans and tomatoes and some are even organic!

I always have crushed tomatoes on hand so I can whip up spaghetti sauce on a whim. All fresh fruits are Whole30 compliant but the program does caution you not to go nuts and replace your old sugary junk foods with sugary fruit. Mango is so good! Costco sells fresh whole mangos too but I like to splurge and get the fresh cut mango to save on prep time. At Costco of course! We have one of those fancy shmancy pineapple slicing doodads so I prefer to buy the whole pineapple but if you want a lot of pineapple without a lot of hassle Costco also carries fresh pineapple slices too.

Brunch just isn't the same unless you have some cantaloupe! Costco carries a fairly wide selection of apples including some not pictured here like Gala, Red Delicious and Fuji apples, and I'm seeing more and moe organic options. I love chopping up apples to throw into a salad or including apple slices with my lunch. Fresh berries, cherries and grapes make wonderful additions to just about any salad - sometimes I even add sliced grapes to my chicken salad.

Sometimes I can find organic berries at Costco, but more often than not all I can find are conventional. Pears and pomegranate seeds are two more delicious fruits that make excellent additions to your favorite salads. Where would we be without citrus? When they are in season I buy clementines by the bagful and always have a few stashed in my purse.

In the It Starts With Food book the authors explain all about why fat is crucial to a healthy diet and they go into detail on the differences between good fats and bad fats. Here are a handful of good fats that you can pick up at Costco. Kerrygold Pure Irish Butter is now the only butter we ever have in our house - it's just so darn good!

By melting butter slowly over low heat the milk fats separate and float to the top as foam which you can skim off with a spoon. I let my jar sit until the clarified butter cools to room temperature and starts to solidify then I store it in the fridge.
