Sharing a roundup of my favorite healthy Costco foods!

Hiiiii! How are you? I hope you’re having a wonderful day! I have an exciting Zoom call this am, and then we’re taking Liv for her first contact lenses lesson. She’s been wanting them for a quite a while, so I hope she loves them.

For today’s post, let’s talk about the club.

The only clubbin’ I really do lately lol.

I freaking love Costco, which is one of the adult-iest things about me. I can roll in there for five things and spend a thousand dollars though, so I don’t go super often. When we do go, we stock up on our beloved faves, and it’s so fun to see what new products and brands they have. They’ve really upped their game on organic and minimally-processed options over the past few years, so I wanted to shout out some of my faves.

I’d love to hear about your Costco staples, too!
