There are some grocery items we could not live with out – truly! These are things beyond produce & meat that we use almost every day. Funny that almost all these items are bought at Costco as well, for us a Costco membership is a huge must have and saves us a ton of money.
These are in no particular order:
1- 2% plain Greek yogurt. We also buy the 0% plain (Kirkland) but I find that the extra fat helps fill me up more. Avery loves plain Greek yogurt with just honey mixed in and actually will not eat flavoured yogurt.
2- Almond milk. We use this in our coffee, oatmeal, cereals, baking and in cooking. I used to prefer the unsweetened kind but this is sold at Costco so saves money!
3 – Natural Peanut Butter. Probably my number one must have 😉 I am PB obsessed and ever since moving to the natural stuff 6 years ago I cannot go back! Another Costco buy:
And this new seed and nut butter is from Costco too and really yummy!
4 – Chia seeds. I make overnight oatmeal a lot with chia seeds, we also use them in baking and in smoothies almost daily.
5 – Quality spices. I am a huge Epicure fan and have a ton of their spices and mixes, below are just a few of my favourites. We use Epicure products every day!
6 – Kodiak Cake mix. I love this mix! It makes the best pancakes which I like to make weekly. I use half water, half almond milk and add vanilla and cinnamon to the mixture. Another Costco find 🙂
7- Quick Oats. We ate a ton of oatmeal, whether its baked, stove-top or overnight oats so we buy this at Costco as well.
8 – Coconut Oil (yes, Costco again!). I used to only use extra virgin olive oil but in the last year have moved to using coconut oil more and more. My favourite is using it to make eggs!
9- Kid’s Clif Bars. Probably not the best thing for kids, but convenience wins here and Avery loves them.
10 – Maple Syrup. We have this (expensive) habit of using it in our coffee in the morning…and of course on pancakes. Thankfully Costco makes this semi-affordable 😉
