I have an addiction, I must admit — it’s Costco! I think I go at least once a week — and some weeks I go even more! Today I stopped by — just because I was in the area and had some time to blow. Check out some of the additional great finds I came across on Organic Products.
These Kirkland Signature Organic Tomatoes are a great price — at only $.75 cents per can! That’s about the same price as Winco for diced tomatoes. And people say Organic costs more?! Costco had 4 different styles to choose from and ranged from $5.99 -$6.99 for 8 -14.5oz cans.
I also found some Organic Sprouted Rice and Quinoa Blend by TruRoots. I have never had Quinoa, but I’ve been seeing it around a lot lately. A quick check at Amazon and you can tell this is an amazing deal at $8.99 for a 3lb bag! Amazon is selling the same 3lb bag for $22.39! After doing a bit of research, I might even purchase some seeds and try growing it myself. I hear it’s quite pretty…
I also came across something called Organic Italian Pearled Farro. I had never heard of this and did some quick checking to find out how it is used in cooking. Apparently, it is similar to rice or barley and has twice as much protein as regular rice, so it makes it great for Vegans! Looks like I might be headed back to Costco to pick some Farro up!

So I stopped by Costco yesterday to pick up some grapes for my Green Smoothie Challenge (cant wait to try a grape smoothie :)) and came across some great finds on Organic Products. Looks like with the New Year they have decided to start carrying some healthier alternatives!
Check out this great buy on Coconut Oil! I usually get the little 16oz jar from Winco for $10. I sure hope this is something they plan to continue carrying …What a bargain!
The price for Organic Sugar is a little more than double the price for C&H right now. I have noticed in the past that the C&H will jump up to around $6.89 or so, but right now, it’s still running around .44¢ a pound. Hard to justify the added expense at this time for the sugar since I am trying to cut back on cooking sweets. So I picked up the Agave Nectar instead and will try that in my next batch of protein bars.
