All beef is grass fed. None of it at costco is grass finished. Sneaky.

No you didn't. Did you? I mean, is it really true Costco has "grass-fed" anything and "wild-caught" anything? If so, decent prices? If so, I'm headed there soon. Yep, I'm a member, and yep, I sort of assumed I couldn't find anything truly healthful there. Happy to be wrong on that score...

When you buy Australian/NZ grass fed lamb, is it marked as "grass fed"? I just bought an Aussie lamb roast from costco unmarked as grass fed specifically, but under the impression most/all aussie red meat is grass fed. If yours is marked as grass fed and mine (Texas') is not, I done goofed.

The one's that come in the bulk package are the worst flavors ever, I think they have a deal to get rid of the cheapest ones to make that are also the worse tasting. Blech!

To add on, comparing to my Carlson fish oil. In a 1600mg serving, 800mg EPA, 500mg DPA, 300mg Other Omega 3's. So more EPA/DHA than "other".

The Kirkland's brand 1000mg pills. They don't list out the EPA/DHA distribution on it, other than a total (300mg). So you've got a 1000mg pill of which 70% is NOT EPA/DHA, and of that 300mg, you don't know how much of each is in there...

My understanding of beef is there's hardly any PUFA anyway. Of the relatively small amount of PUFA, it's mostly O6 but as far as total fat, it's mostly saturated.

the first ingredient is dates, so they are sugary from that. They don't contain any added sugars, they are really just smashed up fruit and nuts with some spices or cocoa added.

The are usually in the same area as snacks, chips, protein bars and the like. At my location, they only have 3 flavors. Not the best flavors, but still tasty.

My last few hauls have included:

  • Fletcher's dry-cured bacon. (Yes, it's factory farmed, but it's extremely tasty.)
  • Zico coconut water
  • Frozen wild-caught mahi mahi.
  • Tinned sardines in olive oil.
  • Canned wild-caught salmon.
  • Pickled herring.
  • Dried cherries.
  • Mediterranean Tapenade (artichokes, olives, tomatoes, capers, red peppers, garlic, oregano in olive oil).
  • Roasted red peppers in a jar.
  • L??rabars.
  • Chicken stock.
  • Sun-dried tomatoes.
  • Raw oysters.
  • Canned clams.

I used to buy all my meat and produce at Costco but not any more. The one I go to in NH does not sell grass-farmed beef nor any other naturally-raised critter products and rarely has organic produce. I think I'm not going to renew it this year. Of course for not-food things they're great but I don't buy much "stuff" aside from cheap clothing I've needed lately because all my old stuff is ginormous.

What annoys me about them is reading that someone is getting grass-farmed ground beef there, but the stores seem to vary pretty widely in their offerings. THe NH store had the ground beef for maybe two months then stopped selling it.

It's also vexing that they sell frozen lobster imported from Brazil, yet Maine's finest are maybe an hour away. Most of the fish is farmed, all the frozen shrimp are farmed too. Blech. No thanks, trying to cut down on the parasites, feces, antibiotics and heavy-metals.

Maybe I should go to one closer to Boston, probably more of a demand for it there.

Oh, and I just chewed a piece of broken glass in the grass-farmed ground beef I got from Whole Foods... nice job there guys. I split my meat & produce Between them, Trader Joes (lots of wild seafood, hit or miss on grass-farmed cow) and online sources of frozen stuff.

Just renewed my long-dormant Costco membership on the rumor here of finding grass-fed beef. Sadly, that turned out to be mere rumor - but I did get the following:

  • 1 carton heavy cream
  • omega-3 free range brown eggs
  • aidell's chicken-apple sausage (easy quick breakfast for me most days)
  • the fletcher's bacon someone else referenced above
  • organic spinach-
  • bag of avocados-
  • 10 lb bag of local-ish sweet onions from Hermiston (I'm in
    Oregon)
  • jumbo-sized contact lens solution

On a side note, I will NEVER EVER go again on a Saturday afternoon.

their wild caught fish is seasonal, though i haven't seen the wild caught salmon in a while. we've been using the wild caught cod instead. definitely can't control ourselves with the macadamia nuts. otherwise: berries, salad greens, kerrygold butter, occasional bulk nuts, magnesium, fish oil, cheese, wine, and flowers :)

I agree, I think the Kirkland's Fish Oil is questionable now. The wild salmon oil sounds interesting, but I haven't looked at the ingredients.

The Costco in Harlem in NYC has a lot of organic ground beef and chicken bundles (individually wrapped but in bundles of 3 1lb packs) but it doesn't say that is grassfed, so I prefer to stick to grassfed brands. However, there has been a huge increase in organic produce lately.

I love Costco lawnchairs. Yummy. No appreciable insulin effect. Yahoo.

best find for us out west: canned wild caught salmon - 3 cans for $9.99. I use all three cans to feed my family of four (big eaters) by making salmon cakes with coconut flour. Great quick dinner and good cheaper whole food way to get omega 3's into us. Fresh wild caught Alaskan salmon for us is $30 a pound or more here in Oregon.

I also buy the raw almonds and soak/dehydrate them, make flour out of that or just eat as snacks. But I'm not eating many nuts right now until I get closer to goal weight. Hence not buying the ADDICTIVE macadamias!!

I'll have to check out the Larabars. I use these for emergencies only, but they are a lifesaver when I need them. I stay away from the varieties with chocolate in them as they're higher carb. The cashew one only has 20 carbs in it.

just made a new paleo (plus salt and dairy) find at costco: ready-made chicken korma.

it is more than just a bit salty but pretty good for a fast, easy cheap meal. i just nuked the $9 container and served it with cooked veggies to my family of four. the kids had some trader joe's rice and naan too. it was more than enough.

the ingredient list is pleasantly grain and additive/fake stuff free - caramel color aside.

ingredients: chicken tenders, heavy whipping cream, organic coconut milk, onion, tomato paste, garlic, butter, water, salt, ginger puree, kasuri methi (dried fenugreek leaves), caramel color, cumin, seasoning(coriander, cumin, black pepper, cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg, cloves, ginger, bay), cayenne pepper, white pepper, cardamom, black pepper, coriander, turmeric.

organic ground beef, omega-3 eggs, fishoil, raw nuts, wild blueberries, wild salmon, salad mix, organic coffee, green tea, when you have no time and dont mind conventional chicken their rotisserie chickens for 5$ are good. overall dissapointed in thier selection of things though. no dark choc worth buying and no coconut milk or organic heavy cream!

I have started shopping at Costco much less after coming back to Paleo. I do still get walnuts and their avocados are excellent but I now buy from local farms for meat and eggs and simply eat less vegetables and almost zero fruit.

I believe their walnuts are processed on equipment that touches wheat.

I actually get a pretty good fish oil from my Costco. It's a total EPA/DHA is 900mg, so I take eight of them a day split between two meals. Granted, there are some bad ones, but this one that I get comes with 150 capsules. What fish oil do people have at their Costco that they do not consider good?

To add on, comparing to my Carlson fish oil. In a 1600mg serving, 800mg EPA, 500mg DPA, 300mg Other Omega 3's. So more EPA/DHA than "other".

The Kirkland's brand 1000mg pills. They don't list out the EPA/DHA distribution on it, other than a total (300mg). So you've got a 1000mg pill of which 70% is NOT EPA/DHA, and of that 300mg, you don't know how much of each is in there...

Aren't larabars just insulin bombs? I crash from heavy sugars in one sitting like that, even after heavy sprinting like ultimate frisbee

Bumping this old topic to point out that the Verde Farms organic ground beef is grain-finished. See the last question on VF's FAQs.

Just remember, most of their stuff isnt organic, often irradiated, and not grass-fed. So its not 100% paleo for the purists, but good enough for the novice and intermediates

Costco lamb is yummy! It is imported from Australia and I believe it is grassfed.

Costco's one of the few places I've found that sells a few cuts of USDA Prime beef, the kind that restaurants use and typically unavailable in supermarkets. Granted, it's not grassfed, but it's very meaty, marbly, and tender. You definitely taste the difference. You have to buy a half-dozen New York Strips at a time, so freeze a few!

My understanding of grainfed is that the fatty ones have the most O6

My understanding of beef is there's hardly any PUFA anyway. Of the relatively small amount of PUFA, it's mostly O6 but as far as total fat, it's mostly saturated.

the first ingredient is dates, so they are sugary from that. They don't contain any added sugars, they are really just smashed up fruit and nuts with some spices or cocoa added.

The are usually in the same area as snacks, chips, protein bars and the like. At my location, they only have 3 flavors. Not the best flavors, but still tasty.

The one's that come in the bulk package are the worst flavors ever, I think they have a deal to get rid of the cheapest ones to make that are also the worse tasting. Blech!
