We like a deal almost as much as we like wellness so when we find a healthy, warehouse club deal, we are loving it. There are lots of finds at Costco, Sam’s Club and BJ’s and we are sharing a few of our favorites with you today. The majority of what we buy, we buy local but it’s easier when you have a cupboard stocked of the essentials.
When you are into wellness, there are certain items you go through a lot of and organic can get costly. Not if you are shopping the warehouse clubs right though! They have a solid selection and there are many organic items you can get at a steep discount compared to Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s and the others.
Don’t just take our word for it though. They are always adding new things, so you want to be open to the hunt when you are looking for the warehouse club deals. If you see something you like- buy it right away. It might not be there later, especially if it has an asterisk by the price or the price ends in .01 at Sam’s Club or .97 at Costco.
1. Wild Caught Fish
We love sustainable, healthy ways of getting our omega-3’s. Amazing distribution of the warehouse clubs means its fresher too.
2. Organic, Non-GMO Corn Chips
Make sure you use a chip clip because this giant bag will last you a long time. It’s also cheaper than the name brand regular size bags that aren’t organic. Use this guacamole recipe for more yummy, healthy fats.
3. Organic Guacamole and Hummus
Sometimes we don’t have time to make a batch of our own when a lot of us are getting together. On those occasions, we opt for giant tubs of organic guacamole or hummus.
4. Squeezable Organic Apple Sauce
It’s great to always has a snack on hand, especially if there are kiddos around! Sometime the apple gets bruised in the purse or rolling around on the front seat. In addition, to being yummy, these are portable, and a healthy snack is always right there.
5. Organic Chickens and Other Meats
Go slow in the freezer and refrigerator sections to snag these deals. Use this recipe for a whole chicken for an easy, healthy meal.
6. Organic Fruits and Vegetables
Organic berries are always a solid buy and full of antioxidants. We never have a problem eating them all. Bananas cheapest ever found. The buys on organic vegetables are frequent and organic spinach and salad mix is always easy to find.
7. Organic Frozen Fruits and Vegetables
Sometimes you can’t make it to the store but if there are frozen fruits and veggies in the freezer you always have a healthy option. Plus, having a variety of frozen fruits in the freezer is an easy smoothie shortcut.
8. Apple Cider Vinegar
We go through a lot around here. Check out Doc’s Quick Tips Video on why he loves apple cider vinegar. There are lots of reasons to buy in bulk.
9. Organic Eggs
I don’t know what your household is like, but for households that don’t have egg allergies, we see a lot of egg cartons. They even have the hard boiled option.
10. Organic Oils
You can find a variety of organic oils including olive, avocado and coconut. They are lower cost for larger quantities. With almost 2.5 lbs of coconut oil you could slather yourself in it. Oh wait- we suggest that. Here is a great body butter recipe. You should also check out the massage in Happy Tatas.
11. Kombucha and Fresh Pressed Juice
We knew they were stepping up the warehouse club game when we found the variety increasing on these healthy drinks.
12. Almond Crackers and Sweet Potato Crackers
For the occasional snack and party food these crackers are a great buy.
13. Lara Bars
Not organic but usually five ingredients or less. Plus, you can pronounce them all!
14. Organic Veggie Bites
Yummy snacks you can pop in the oven. They are like tater tots but veggies!
15. Organic Maple Syrup and Organic Raw Honey
Processed sugars are the worst for you. They have no nutritional value and are high in inflammation. Using these sweeteners for baking is the sweeter choice! Less processing means more nutrients.
16. Organic Coconut Flour
Another baking essential! This alternative to flour doesn’t have gluten, is high in fiber and helps maintain a healthy blood sugar level. It’s great for pancakes, desserts, breadings and more!
17. Canned Wild-Caught Tuna and Salmon
More great sources of omega-3’s and wild-caught! Use these for salads or in a burger like this one.
18. Organic Chia Seeds and Flax Seeds
Nice sized bags for a low price. They are full of protein, omega-3’s and are good for your heart. Eat lots because they are an anti-inflammatory food. Because of the way chia seeds gel you can use them as a egg replacer. Throw these in your smoothies and baked goods.
19. Organic Quinoa
Another giant bag! Can’t get enough of this ancient superfood with tons of protein. You will have plenty of this yummy, healthy grain to make this Butternut Squash Quinoa Risotto.
20. Glass Containers with Snap on Lids
Plastics are full of dangerous chemicals. Glass is the better choice and these stackable containers make it an easy choice. Great for freezer meals too. Check out some of our favorite freezer meals.
21. The Honest Company Shampoo and Body Wash
Free of parabens, harsh chemicals and synthetic fragrances. It’s a great choice and we found it for in a 2-pack at Costco for $12.49.
With all the deals you find on chia seeds, fruits and greens you might need a new blender for your smoothies. They have a few options including the Nutribullet RX and Vitamix.
23. Organic Wine
You don’t often think of organic wine but if they have it in stock, grab it for your next party.
Find The Warehouse Deals
There are lots of reasons to shop organic for you and your family. It also makes a lot of sense as more people purchase organic it will lower the cost and be better for our environment and community.
Don’t always assume that the warehouse club price is always the better deal. Sometimes you can find prices better at your local store. These are ones that we have consistently found to be winners and always keep our carts full when shopping the clubs. They are always changing it up and adding new things. Let us know what you find in the comments below! We all win when it’s healthy and it makes it easier (and cheaper) to keep us on our path of wellness.
