I have off on Thursday mornings, so I often use my work and kid-free time to stock up on IP staples that I will need to make my upcoming weekend a low carb success story. Today, while doing my usual shopping order, I decided to make a list of my go-to Costco items. So here it goes...take a look at what's in my shopping cart...
From the Butcher:
I must confess, I really wish that I liked fish...but no matter how it's dressed up...I just can't.
That said, I have heard Costco is a great place to pick up all things fish!
These next two items are definitely my favorite Costco finds. I use the salsa as the "Pico De Gallo" that Janeva calls for in lots of her recipes (ex: mocamole). I also use the salsa straight up with some IP Garlic & Herb Chips.
It's a must have for your fridge!
This is THE STOCK!!! Everyone asks me if they can sip on stock when they are hungry ...or add it to their soup... or use it in recipes...and my answer is always
"only if you can find a 0 carb stock".
This is always the stock that I recommend...so "stock-up" on this stock.
I find buying cauliflower that is already prepped increases the odds of me making it...even on nights when I.just.can't.think.about.cooking. I do love making caulirice, caulimashed and caulisoup, so buying this prepped bag makes my life much easier.
Asparagus is one of the easiest veggies to cook...and I'm into easy...so a few nights a week, asparagus it is in my house. Plus, asparagus is one of the main ingredients in, my favorite, mockamole.
So, that's my Costco run.
I'd love to hear your Costco IP secrets too.
Please comment on what you have found in the aisles of Costco that have made
Phase 1 easier for you.
