Grilling Cheese At Aldi! – More New Finds at Aldi – Keto Grocery Haul – Low Carb Haul

Here we have a haul coming to you from where all these, no, it doesn’t sound right, guys, Aldys all these Aldi’s. I know I have a few of you correcting me on my pronunciation. All these is what it is all these is how I say it, which one do you like better. Oh these, the way it’s supposed to be – or all these I don’t know, I’m anyway enough of that – let’s go ahead and get to the details.

I have some new finds guys, let’s go ahead and get through it, we’ll go, buy them one by one, all right. So check it out, I think, of these salad, kids, like shared with you guys how much I like these. These are the little salad bar brands, and this is the Asian. You don’t really want to necessarily eat the salad dressing. However, everything else is good to go. This one actually seems like it has less carrot, and I know carrots aren’t kedo, but the other thing is David, doesn’t like them.

So I picked at the Asian, the Southwest salad, jalapenos, pretty little jalapenos. These were 69 cents, a pound, then my avocados 38 cents. Today. I got a cauliflower cauliflower, it was a dollar 69, what a great deal and I got some onions, 49 cents. This was new when I check it out. We know where I am with cheese, and this looked really good. This is the cheddar truffle cheese. Let’s check it out, I did not look at the carbs, it is a hundred and twenty calories per serving at 10 grams of fat and it is zero grams of carbs and there are the ingredients.

Folks too many for me to read out to you so there you go then guys I picked up these. This is what I would consider easy lazy, convenient keto. The reason why I don’t mean to offend anybody by the way it’s just lazy keto, simply because it’s pre-made, you know your your perfect keto – would be just buying the ground, pork and making yourself some sausage, but I needed some convenience things. We’ve got a lot going on right now, including having to purchase a new truck.

Oh my gosh, the truck went out. My husband’s truck went out so we’re going to have to purchase a new truck, so this might be a couple mornings before we go out and look at trucks and grab a couple of those and go we’ll see. If I do my meal, prep it’ll be great, but I’ve kind of been behind the past week and a half on nil breath. Other thing is, I have not seen these before. There was two flavors. I happen to pick up the olive oil with a garlic flavor.

It’s nonstick cooking spray and, of course the macros are great on that pick that up again a little more lady key though this is their pepperoni. I plan on making some pizzas. I want to deliver one of them to David’s friend John, who is doing keto and he’s so cute and on how old John is, but I know he’s older than us. At least I would say in this late 60s and John calls me up Emma, tell me about your Stromboli, and I just gotten gave me the biggest thrill, oh so cute all right.

Next guys this would be an equivalent to Frank’s hot sauce. This is by Berman’s. This was 79 cents guys. I thought we’d go ahead and give it a try. We loved our Frank’s hot sauce. That would give this one the chance. This is zero grams of carbs and the ingredients are really clean. So there you go two more new items that I found at mine. Is this right here, roasted garlic with extra virgin olive oil, stop by stone mill, and it is less than one gram of carb.

Here’s the ingredients – and I show sugar, however, thought I’d – give it a try same thing here. Is this minced chili with garlic? This one has sugar as the third ingredient less than one gram. That’s someone grab my carb 5 calories and it’s going to be such a miniscule amount guys that I thought it might worth be worth the try. I also picked up these little guys. This is the stone meal Carolina, Reaper, stir in paste, and doesn’t that look good and spicy? So I got that one.

These are all new finds the green jalapeno again a new find and the yellow habanero. Oh my gosh. I hope these are spicy. There’s a nutritional information, guys 25 calories. You hear Bulli in the ground in the background. Making noise – and here are the ingredients guys it does have sunflower oil, which of course, is something that we don’t always at 1:00 in our food and the sometimes anthem gum is even questionable as well as a bargain.

Still give me a chance. I I showed you guys these in a previous hall, we were really actually liking these. These are like $ 4.99. A bit of a splurge, but it is very convenient. Here are the items that are in this particular package. This is $ 4.99 for 4-6. Ounces love that okay, guys, here’s what I’m really excited about now. You guys have seen my article in regards to the grill and cheese right.

Let me show you it looks like here. It is oven, baked cheese with aged parmesan. This package is six ounces $ 7.99 and it is 220 calories. I believe four per serving what is it 120 calories per serving so quite a bit, and I jokingly said maybe a ladoos will come to the rescue. Well, maybe all these kind of has come to the rescue. Let me show you what I found all right, so this is vegetarian, a cheddar grilling, cheese, great for grilling or frying only at County.

This is by Earth grown again, all did only at Aldi, so I’m believe I’m beginning to believe this might be something they carry regularly. So it says it’s great for salads, like croutons and as a source of protein for your burger 13 grams of protein. Let’s check it out here, it is good through December 29th, so it has a really good a shelf life there. It’s four servings calories are 200 per patty. Each patty is 2.

25 ounces, so on this little bugger it would be 220 calories for one ounce. This is 2.25 ounces, so I guess, if you wanted to cut in half, you probably could – and it is 200 calories – 2 grams of carbs here – are the ingredients? Nothing really terrible. I mean you know tapioca starch yeah, I’m not too sure about that, but not terrible. Terrible so again, how many carbs? Is it it’s 2 grams of carb for one serving? You know what it’s worth a try guys.

So this is the cheddar grilled cheese. They also have the spicy cheddar, which I and excited about alright guys, here’s what they look like. I will do a separate article on this, for you guys and do a little taste test on it, but that’s what they look like. They are fairly deep. I’m going to give that a try today, I also going to be making some pizzas, so I picked up some of the mushrooms. I can get the brown mushrooms guys, they’re a heck of a lot better on keto and the white ones, but this is what they had so I picked these up.

I want to make a little bit of creamed spinach if you haven’t tried that check the recipe out in the upper right hand, corner that will be available to you. I got two broccoli crowns. I got some pistachios for Matthew. I was at school, so I try to go ahead and make him a little crab bag so that he’d take home with him every week or when I see him alright. So then, I also have all of this shrimp and it says it’s salad shrimp, but I’m actually going to use it on some rice, some cauliflower fried rice.

I’ve got some bay scallops for the same reason that these are like 339 a package I for these avocado containers, and these are a little bit more affordable than the holy guacamole. I don’t like the flavored ones at all guys, but these are delicious, also picked up. Some cilantro a little bit of ricotta cheese. Some basic butter get your Kerrygold if you can and they actually do sell it at Aldi’s. But I just need some plain one.

I also picked up four packages of pork rinds guys these for 75 cents, today, 75 or 78 cents today, yeah, typically 99 cents that went down in price. That’s cool, always little savings and they also have the max pork rinds. Now let me tell you this here: the spicy one where it does not have multiple dextran and that does have msg so you’ll see it down here yep. It does have mint MSG in it. So those probably go to Matt we’ll see he loves pork rinds.

We all do this is for my mom look at that budget. Mint cookies also picked up heavy whipping cream, and you know what, even though these are dollar 69. I’ve shared that with you before and even at this price point the fact that they put them in this type of container that has a little pour spout. I love that also got some half-and-half check out those some more heavy whipping cream and a cabbage and look at these new finds here guys this coffee, bourbon coffee, as well as maple bacon coffee.

So here the ingredients are for this, which is coffee, natural and artificial. Flavors, so that’s questionable, but hey guys, it’s coffee, let’s splurge a little bit and here’s the second one same same difference. So though I might do a article that just does it taste test on this, we’ll see guys. So. For my milk, I do love that, but I thought it’d be nice. Just don’t have a pretty container in the refrigerator a glass jar with a lid, this carafe.

So I got me a craft. This was 399 and then I had a puppy and you guys know about the sweet, sweet bow and I’ve got Daisy and I’ve got Bulli well. Other thing is, I purchased their bed and the bed is washable the outside cover, but the guts a lot. So I thought: well, you know what this way in case he has an accident, I’m not going to give him the bed just yet he needs to go into that because he still act yep peeing on occasion, so when he grows into that, I will also I Bought two of these, I will wrap one of these around the bed, because the contents aren’t washable, but the outside of it is so.

This will protect the contents all right. So that’s my haul guys tell me what new finds you have found so anyway, guys that wraps that up have a blessed day. Let me know how you’re doing what you’re up to and let me know about your favorite Algie purchases. Alright, guys have a blessed day.

MEGA $850+ COSTCO GROCERY HAUL 65+ KETO ITEMS WE LOVE AND USE!

We were there all the time anyway. So this list will include over 60 items over $ 800 with the product of the things that we pick up at Costco, and I think it might find that it helps you if you’re not familiar with some of these products or if you don’t go to Costco.

Very often, or if you’re, not even a member, a lot of these things, you can get on Amazon, believe it or not, so you know me I’ll be linking some stuff in the description below anyway yeah. So, stick around see what all the things that we buy are and they’re, certainly even more than that at the store it’s just. This is a list of the things that we use, and this was what three trips right: three trips, three different trips and we’re combining it all into one.

Let’s take someone to talk a little bit about the store itself. We’ve been extremely busy it’s hard to film. In our warehouse one because I work there and everybody wants to chat with me, a lot of the members know who I am so it makes it very disruptive. So we’ve chosen not to actually film while were there, but we did take pictures of the products and price cards when we could, I think, we’re missing one.

Oh yeah yeah. I was putting it together before we did this article to talk about each of these items. So we’ll jump right into it copy draw, let’s start with my favorite cheese, cheese in more cheese and more cheese, that’s Stacey’s department, absolutely I’ve, always loved cheese. Since I was a little kid, we started off with our mozzarella cheese. This is a must-have in our household. At any given time it’s the basis of our Fathead pizzas, you know one of our favorites that we like to do and we did a how-to article.

That’s done very well for us, it is tapas. I usually mix up an egg with a little bit of nacho cheese for a trifle real, quick, absolutely the other staple that we like is the queso chihuahua cheese, chihuahua cheese, it’s about Wawa, cheese, yeah, Greg and Stacey. Kgp dough turned this on to that cheese and it’s definitely been a winner for Stacey. She loves that cheese and then we do taco bowls with it.

Yes are those taco bowls. We use that Kiesel yeah yeah, it’s good cheese, good, good, spicy, cheese. The Mexican cheese is another one. We love to do our tackle shows with the chocolate bowls with the flat breads with yeah. I’ve even seen, Stacey use a mission, carp shell, to make a quesadilla out of that and put it a little bit of jalapeno. Yes, yes, the next one is cheddar cheese, sugar. I can handle cheddar, you can handle again Bill likes to put cheddar on top of his chili yep.

I also put it on my broccoli and I love to make broccoli cheddar soup, with their cheddar cheese. Nope can’t go wrong with that. Can’t go wrong with each other, one of the other, quick and simple snack ideas that I always use as well as our daughters, love are. The mozzarella sticks now, don’t why are they great for snacking they’re great for homemade mozzarella sticks yeah, yeah radio. For that too Parmesan cheese, shakey cheese.

I call it. He always calls it’s tricky because you shake it. Okay, I mix this in with a couple of different recipes that I use even with the flat breads. It just gives a different texture to it, meatballs to the meatballs, and I love it with the parmesan crusted, pork, chops, cheese and texture of crust. That’s what she likes crunch is where it’s at crunches, where it’s at Thursday’s. So now it’s time to talk about the meats.

The one nice thing with Stacey working at Costco is she can get the prime picks of the rib eyes. I know everybody yeah, so we’ve gotten a couple batches of the rib eyes that have just been oh, my gosh perfection. They taste amazing. I even just did a article on how I make my rib eye steak. It’s wonderful! It’s a great treat now and then yeah. Absolutely he always asked after I buy them. He says how’d, it feel like a steak.

Yes – and I love me, the other thing I get from Costco is the chicken thighs they have the boneless chicken thighs and there’s no skin on them. I do grab some from the store that have skin on them as well with the boning, but the ones from Costco are just really nice package. You get a couple in in each package, so I don’t feel like I’m eat wasteful. I can pull out what I need and those chicken thighs are fantastic.

Another thing we get from there is regular ground beef. Now, instead of just getting a regular package of ground beef, we get the tube of ground beef, which is ten pounds. I believe yes just knock on the window, and anybody in the meat department can help you out with the tuba ground beef. It saves you money. Yeah, you get a better price per pound. We had to do the two tube they get into being 30.

40. 50 cents less per pound to do that to so, the tube is definitely worth looking into. If you’re, making a large amount, we tend to cook up that whole tube and put it into snap where and then we put it in the freezer when we pull it. When we want tacos – and we pull it when we want to make something, we also pick up the organic beef from Costco. That’s what I use when I’m going to make our meatballs hamburger patties.

They just definitely are just a really good tasting meat. I love a homemade hamburger for a quick meal bill tends to do for him and Julia the. I think it’s 1/3 pound beef, patty yeah that are possible from casco just fast and easy yeah. I like the home, cooked ones. Another thing that goes along with the meat very well is the rails, marinara sauce. We use that for our meatballs. We use it for all kinds of things.

Actually, I’ve even just made ground beef and put some rails and some shaky Parmesan cheese on it and just eat it like that, because that’s just how I roll sometimes it’s true, but the rails is great for a treat now and then, and we did pick up Recently here the beef pot roast it’s got a gravy in it and it’s got the beef in it. Oh my gosh, that’s a really nice little treat now and then to pick up.

This doesn’t really like that, but I love it. Next would be the roasted garlic sausage, it’s kind of like a Polish, a little bit like a hot dog. Oh my gosh, they’re, so good. I use them on the COS ass, a little spinning thing that cooks them up and gives them a nice crust. Love that thing another thing I always grab when I go in as a treat now man, maybe once a month I’ll, grab a rotisserie chicken, it’s already pre-made, I just strip it out.

I like to eat the thighs Stacy likes the chicken breast part, so she’ll tear that up and put it on a salad or something I just like the taste of it. I know that some people have issues with that, so I don’t do it very often, but I do like it chicken strips oh, my gosh. These are great. We use them without fredo sauce. We mix it in with a little bit of like ground, pepper and some garlic and some onion powder, because Stacy doesn’t like expiry things and it makes for a wonderful meal Stacy likes.

This is already precooked too, so you could throw it on top of the salad fast and easy just measure out a couple ounces, throw it on top that alfredo chicken is fantastic. Absolutely. I also like to do a couple ounces, usually about two ounces of the chicken strips and I’ll. Just do like a ranch dressing or Caesar dressing as a dipping sauce and I’m good to go, gives you a meal because you got a protein yeah and of course, you can’t go to Costco without buying bacon right bacon.

I buy the four packs of bacon a times. That’s the magic word of the article bacon yeah, you know we buy the four packs of bacon from Costco and Nightrain ration knows out to about once a week. The other thing for a bacon I use is the crumbles. The little crumbles I use those mainly in salads if we ever do make like a little quesadilla with that Mexican cheese or queso cheese, I’ll, throw some bacon bits in with that, of course, on the fat head pizzas, he has bacon and I do have it on The fat head – pizzas, yeah, that’s a staple got bacon, got ta, have the bacon absolutely oh and then add words to build omelets yeah.

I forgot about that yeah I put some bacon crumble, sometimes in an omelet, real, quick. This me it turns out. You know what happens is I start an omelet and it ends up being scrambled eggs. So you know he always eggs yeah. So that’s how that works, and last time I meet list would be tail off fruit. I love this stuff. I throw some of the pan with some vegetables a little bit of olive oil, so some of that gee use teriyaki sauce mix that all up cook it up.

Oh my gosh, it’s amazing! Next to a steak or a piece of chicken, it’s just fantastic! You! You owe it to yourself to try. These almonds happens to be one of my absolute favorites. I love them by themselves, but I actually really like to pair the almonds with extra sharp cheddar cheese, see that just doesn’t sound like a good combo, and I like both of those things. I just don’t think I want them together.

You know, and the funny thing is I would have never eaten them together, but I think my taste buds have changed slightly. Walnuts is another thing that we always have here at the house. I do a lot of baking with the walnuts our Kido mug cake has walnuts. Peekytoe moose has walnuts. You can’t go wrong with two ounces of walnuts in your hand, yeah. We always have 200 snack bags of walnuts and almonds in the and sometimes of academia TIFF.

We have them yeah and in the refrigerator, so there’s like a grab and go back for any of us that need to grab something to go. Yes, keeps you keeps you honest now the macadamia nuts. I have to be careful with those because our youngest daughter – yes, she tried it for the first time at Gregg and Stacy’s with Kazu Kido, I had to keep taking the bag away from her about Mike stop yeah she’s just sitting there eating them like it’s popcorn, Yeah and they’re like leave her alone, let her eat them.

I’m like no okay, it’s back to me now and these little beef sticks I find are fantastic for on-the-go. I actually grabbed the big pack. I think there’s 28 in the pack and – and I throw a couple of my car for a couple because you don’t have to refrigerate them even and and I always grab a big handful of them. And I give my daughter at college because I wanted to have something in their backpack between classes or one, not if she’s in a rush and then just they taste, wonderful and they’re, just so convenient in their own little packages.

Also, we found a new product at Costco called the keto snack mix. This is something great to sit down with a small bowl if you’re going to read like TV or something and you kind of Miss having that little snack, this will fit the bill perfectly. Also, these little cheese wisps are pretty darn good in a little Bowl. If you want a little snack, too kind of an indulgent thing, just sit down with little balls.

Those just measure him out follow the basics. Yeah next are the folio wraps. Everybody was talking about these before Costco had them, and the buzz was just crazy online about it. When we finally got him, I said: oh, we got to get them, who got trying well I’ll, tell you what the texture of them they’re very slick and smooth is not for me. I tried to do a tack on them. I tried to do some lunch meat in them.

They’re. Just not my thing: they don’t taste horrible they’re, just it’s a texture thing and I normally wouldn’t say I’m a texture person, but Stacy ate them now onto the baking stuff. For me, at any given time, we always have at least a couple dozen eggs in the house a couple dozen. What are you talking about six to eight dozen in almost any time, so maybe a few dozen more than a couple yeah we buy the organics and that’s what I use when I’m doing omelets in the morning, primarily for truffles and omelets, I use the organics any Baking thing I do the arena cakes as well.

Now I do buy the regular eggs, our youngest daughter and our old Center love Excel. It now eats up eggs right yeah. Whenever I’m making excelled, I’m usually using eight to ten eggs and they both love. It Carrie gold is another. One of our staples Billy says Kerry gold, probably more than I do yeah I do every morning for ages. I use Terry gold. He hasn’t done it in the coffee, yet he can’t have to do that boy yeah! I don’t do that stuff at Costco as well as I always have the unsalted butter.

We have quite a few recipes that call for the unsalted butter, so it’s ready yeah. So I always make sure I have that on hand and ready to go Philadelphia, Cream Cheese. An absolute staple in the house why go ahead be took dad had pizza, that’s the only thing. I know we use it for there’s a couple other recipes, but also call for the Philadelphia Cream Cheese, but the fact that is the majority of our cream cheese.

So another two bags table that we have in our house is almond flour. Many many many recipes call for the almond flour, so we always have at least two bags on and at any given time. The other thing that we keep on hand is the baking cocoa you’ve done a couple different articles with that the mug cakes things of that nature, so it’s always good to have for a sweet treat the one thing that surprised me is every time we would go To Kroger or somewhere she’d say pick up some vanilla extract and that little bottle was like nine dollars, twelve dollars, something like that right well, Tosca might be a little more expensive on the initial purchase, but what you get for that price? Amazing! Let me tell you it’s 30 bucks and after the vanilla extract yeah, I figure out how many asks you.

37. 28 bucks yeah. It definitely is a game changer when it comes to purchasing vanilla, especially if you’re going to use it for more than one recipe. The birch benders keto pancake mix is amazing. Let me tell you when we buy that stuff at the store we get a lot smaller bag and it costs eight or nine dollars. This thing is like three times the amount for just a little bit more. So definitely if you use that product, this is the way to go, get it at Costco.

Another thing we buy in bulk, obviously at Costco is my broccoli. I have five ounces of broccoli next to a piece of meat, probably at least four times a week. I, like this stuff, super easy, throw it in the microwave I split it up, and then I have a few meals. I do meal prep in containers and I set it all aside and then I eat that for the next couple days. The broccoli is awesome and then I steal the broccoli to put in with my chicken in alfredo sauce, even for your soup and for my soup.

Yep another thing to put next to a piece of chicken in the afternoon, for me at least, is the Caesar salad kit. Now I don’t use the Cutrone’s, I do use those the dressing experian there, but I really like their Caesar salad kits. Stacy does too so when we open the back, we get about three to four servings out of that bag, so we’re in the produce department of Costco you’ll notice. Everything is a little bigger.

I really like their mushrooms there I cut those up. I wash them. I cut them up, I throw I want to p.M. A little olive oil man, they’re they’re, just awesome, and the next thing on the list here is we grab and we’re going to try hava kado again, I don’t know we’ll do another article of it, but we’re Going to try them again, because I know that there’s some great benefits too, you know and they say your taste buds changed and they say your taste much change, so we’re going to give it another.

Try one more try, but there won’t be a article this time. I also grabbed a baggie, these mixed peppers now and then I just wash them up cut them up and again fry them up in a pan, real quick, so tasty so good for you really good stuff. We just tried this bag of cauliflower rice. I have not made it yet. My intention is to use a little bit of soy a little bit of teriyaki, sauce and fry it up in a pan with some butter and see.

If I can replicate something close to a fried rice, it might be disgusting. I don’t know, the other thing you can do is throw some salt, pepper and butter on it and try and eat it as a side dish and again haven’t done it yet. So let me know in the comments if you have and what do you think of it or the best way to make it. Everybody knows we’re not doing sugar on keto right. So the monk fruit from LA canto is is a great substitute.

It’s kind of like swerve to Stacie uses in her recipes mm-hmm. Everybody knows I have a sweet tooth, so I tend to do more of the sweet treats so that I don’t feel like. I need to go away from quito when I want something sweet yeah and that be used a little bit of coffee here, and there too, I actually use the monk fruit drops as well. Yeah so see there, either or depending on what we have most of at that time.

Now, with the avocados remember how we talked about trying the avocado skin, which we will do, but we do use the avocado oil and we do use the avocado spray yeah. What kind of oil I’m used for vegetables sometimes instead of olive oil and the avocado spray I use for things? I don’t want to stick like if I put some parchment paper down or some foil down and I’m going to make something in the oven like the tortilla chips or I don’t know anything, I could spray a little bit of the avocado spray and nothing sticks and That kind of replaces those old canola sprays that we used to use all the time.

Oliver can’t go wrong, use the heck out of it. I use it a lot. I do it mainly for vegetables, I’ll, put vegetables and mix them up with some garlic and stuff love. Love, love the stuff. Yes, and I use it when I do the crispy chicken or the parmesan crusted pork chops and coconut oil ain’t bad either. I’ve tried some of that in the pan and mixed up some things. It doesn’t really have like a super strong, coconutty taste to it.

To me it is pretty good and you used it for fat bombs. Yeah I’ve tried a couple of fat bombs with the coconut oil. They always call for a dark chocolate. I’m not a fan of dark chocolate, so I’m I found I haven’t, found a really good fat bomb for me with that. Quite yet, but we’ll see cilantro lime, crema, this stuff is awesome again. Greg and Stacey turned us on to this from kzp dough. We were out there in Kalamazoo doing something and we were making taco balls.

I think that day – and you know goods like hey, have you tried this so no haven’t tried, it tried it and guess what we’re buying it a pretty regular basis. Every time we make anything, it has a type of meat or type of bass with a taco ball, I’m putting that stuff on it. I love the taste. True story, true story, I see, I see we do use a lot of spices. I now make my own taco seasoning mix yep in Julie labels and Bill.

Does his chicken rub, so we always have a ton of spaces. We try to get the big bottles when we can. Paprika is one of the big ones that we can get from Casco. We use paprika often the pure sea salt is something we always have on hand and goes in almost everything that we cook a lot of the recipes that we do and definitely a staple. In pepper. We use a lot of pepper in this house. We are not afraid of pepper, not afraid of pepper.

So if I make pigs in the morning, I’m putting pepper and salt every day, yes, but lots of pepper, definitely in a lot of recipes yeah. The other thing is the pink Himalayan sea salt. We have it on hand, then you have quite a few recipes that will call for that too adds a different flavor to it. So that’s pretty good as well, not my favorite honestly, but I know it’s good for you and we do use it yeah in the recipes.

It kind of hides it a little bit right. No, I wouldn’t put that in my eggs just personally but yeah. It’s not bad when she puts in their recipe and all you did that way, sneak it in minced garlic. We use the heck out of this stuff. We do almost all the meats that we make. We use the minced garlic and on our fat head Pizza, vegetables. All kinds of places every time you turn around pulling out the mince garlic so now onto some of the drinks, we have an RO system here at home and I love it and we’ve added some minerals and some other things into that, our own filtering system.

So I tend to drink a majority. That’s a eight! Even ninety percent of my drinking is water and I drink a lot. But when we go to Costco we splurge occasionally we buy like the propel zero. I love that stuff and I really like the way that that comes in a variety pack, so you don’t get tired of one flavor. You grab one this day and you grab another one a different day and another drink we’ve tried. It recently was the I believe they call it.

Bai Bai they’re, pretty good too. They have a different taste to them, but it’s just something to throw into the refrigerator and have as a an offering or a different taste. If you just want to grab and go with something last time, the drink list is, if is, if you haven’t tried these, give them a try. Costco sells a variety pack and they’re, really pretty good. Yes, I’ll grab my drink of water, I’ll grab a bottle of water.

Take a few drinks first put, the zip is in shake it up. Trust me trust me if you have never done this before take a few drinks first put. The zip is in then put the cap on and shake it up, because if you don’t get him a mess like I did so just you know, take care of ice before key Tori needs to be a really heavy milk drinker. Yes, you do every day every day had to have my milk, but I had stronger bones.

That’s true! So now I always have a little bit of almond milk on hand great for recipes and just to have a sip of milk, so in the health beauty in pharmacy area of Costco. Two of the things that I use are the apple cider, vinegar capsules. I like those because just kids teased about the cider vinegar, so I’m trying to get the outside the vinegar in in a different form in a capsule form, so I’m trying to do good right and the other thing I use from that area is super beet complex.

I take that every day as well. For me, I use the nature’s bounty, hair, skin and nails. I’ve been using that for about six months and definitely notice the difference. Yeah, you are having some trouble of hair loss in the beginning. I think right yeah. However, I find out now that it’s pretty menopause causing the hair loss, not Kido – oh geez, sorry, but it does help your hair skin and nails alright, but it does okay, a few staples that we have that I used almost every time I do any baking is Parchment paper are usually yeah, can’t have enough parchment paper, it’s great.

So, when you’re rolling out the dough’s yeah, it’s not sticking to your rolling. Pin it’s not sticking to your hands. That’s sticking to the counter! It comes right off when you’re done baking. I’ve even used it to make bacon yeah deep, well sheet. Aluminum, foil is also something that we keep on hand it’s great when you have to let something set up, and we want to cover it when you put it in the refrigerator, and it’s also really nice to store things with as well.

Yep. Their foil is thicker. Next, on my list are the vinyl gloves bill makes fun. I don’t like to touch raw meat so, but he’s the final whoops and it works well for me, are you sold now read means I don’t like to touch the meat, it’s a texture thing, but I will tell you garbage bags. We go through a ton, more garbage bags because we’re cooking all fresh now, cooking at home and cookie, more real foods, yeah yeah, definitely stead throwing on a McDonald’s bag, we’re making all this food and then all the waste of that food or the XS or the Skins or whatever all goes in the garbage, absolutely there must have yeah, and I like that.

Garbage bag safer, archaeans well and we just go through so many of them and they were so economical compared to just going and buying a smaller package or get ripped off with us at the store. She knows that’s one of the reasons I do love Kasich. Oh, hey, it’s flu season, guys and also everybody’s all worked up about this coronavirus stuff too, but basically it is flu season. Don’t forget that? Yes, so we go through a lot of tissue in this house with the kids and everything and then when Lauren comes home she takes some tissue back to the dorms.

I think she feeds everybody else to eat it, but we do go through a lot, so we buy in bulk at Costco. We use the heck out of it and I really like it. Yeah Clorox wipes goes right along with that we’re always sanitized and everything whitening things down doorknobs. When Julie comes home from school, I cringed to think of all the things that she’s touched along the way, and I want her to wash her hands when she comes home from school.

I know that might be a little crazy, but then I grab a clerics clock and I’m getting the door knobs and anything else is she talks before she came in okay, just because I’m kind of weird like that and don’t forget to wake your fridge handles the Last two things on the list for today are not Kido but definitely staples in the household we use everybody’s advice, household, the tide and UNSTOPABLES cuz you’ve got us no good yeah.

You got ta smell, good and here’s the thing you get more for your money, more volume for the price, I believe at least at Cosmo. So when we do know, we pick up the tide, we pick up the downy or the fabric sheets. So that’s the majority of the things that we buy when we go to Costco. Hopefully you got some new ideas. You know we did quite a few items here on these last three trips that we shared with you guys.

So maybe in the comments below, let us know what your favorite things from Costco are. If we didn’t cover one of them, let us know, because I’d like to look for it and start using it, possibly absolutely yeah. So that’s how we all learn. So thanks for joining us and keep it keto, you

Pumpkin Seeds are a great addition to your Keto snack list!

LAZY KETO FAMILY FALL GROCERY HAUL 2019

I bet you are ready for some regular articles again. The past three articles have all been travel vlogs I figured. I would start it out with a little bit of a grocery haul, for you guys. So, let’s hop it into the article where we hop into the groceries that I got I just kind of want to go over. How I make my grocery lists and how we typically eat my grocery list. I will mostly go off of Pinterest or just like recipes that I know I want to make or the season so right now it’s like supergluing, it’s cold outside.

It is totally fall mode here in Minnesota. So I got things for like soups and like like hot dishes, like warm things, also incorporating lots of keto style of these meals. I do like to keep pretty keto still in the fall anyways, so we like to eat pretty clean and healthy. For the most part. There are some like I do like cheat meals in here for sure, but keto paleo. That is typically how we like to eat.

We stay away from sugar and we try to stay away from gluten things like that, but let’s hopping into the food because there’s a lot of it: okay, so starting out over here, I’m going to start with our meat. I got some sausage patties for breakfast. This is always yummy to go with like eggs or sometimes Mike will make crepes for like kaya. She loves to have these with crepes. We have a pot roast here, pork chops, so the pot roast will be a meal.

Pork chops will be a meal, got chicken. Thighs almost put these in half and that’ll, be two meals, I’m and then we’ve got a pound of hamburger, and one thing we did forget was chicken breasts, which kind of sucks, because it’s make for a lot of our meals, but we’ll go back and get some We’ve got pepperoni because Kyle and I at low to snack on pepperoni, and then we’ve got bacon some pork sausage. Now, with this meat we’ll do like just roast and carrots potatoes for like a normal meal and then we’ll do pork chops with like side of veggies things like that chicken thighs same thing, we’ll do chicken thighs with like rice and a side of veggies, and then This hamburger – I got this specifically for something I’ll have to pull up my me list, for you guys I can go through all the meals but um, and then this is her breakfast and then the pork sausage will be for a soup, making a keto style Tuscan Soup, which is really good so you’ve got whole carrots back here, which will go with the rose to mitosis and with a few other things they are higher in carbohydrates.

But what I like to do is because give me more of that, like potato, a starchy type of like feel taste, I guess you could say with my roast and then I can still do like a keto gravy and keep my carbs down now. This is more like a lazy keto, because when I’m pure keto, I won’t carrots or anything like that. But and then we’ve got a spaghetti squash because spaghetti squash, spaghetti or a spaghetti squash alfredo is really good jalapenos because we love to do jalapeno poppers.

So with fees to cut these in half and then I will fill it with something like this, usually I do like a normal cream cheese, but I found this jalapeno and cheddar cream cheese which looked super good, and that is, you know friendly. We try to stay lower on our dairy, but cream cheese is a yummy add-in once in a while, we’ve got avocados and then we’ve got some salad, some spring mix. Underneath here we really like to have Cobb salads.

My favorite salad. Lately is just a simple just. My greens, all as like maybe some cucumbers, some avocado and then I will do sriracha and Italian dressing. It’s super good at super spicy, it’s kind of like an Asian vinaigrette, I’m a zucchini because we like to slice these in half put them in the oven, sprinkle them with cheese. If you’re going Terry free, you can just leave the cheese off and season them very good.

Getting into some of this stuff for kaya, I will munch on blueberries and strawberries once in a while, but I’ll cut these up. These are really nice to have on hand and for healthy snacks. For Chi we’ve got unsweetened almond milk in the back here I don’t think it’s vanilla. I think this is just regular, unsweetened almond milk, which is really good to have with our iced coffee. You guys know every grocery haul I’ve got iced coffee, unsweetened, iced, coffee and unsweetened almond milk, because that’s my go-to in the morning, then we’ve got bananas back here and then, if we don’t eat all of these, and some of them go bad.

I will make banana bread with them because Mike loves banana bread, we’ve got some frozen mango chunks and these are mostly yeah weaknesses, banana bread, I’ve got frozen mango chunks, and these are mostly for raker. We like to put him in his little mesh thing and he can’t eat on them. He loves these and then I’ve got this mixed berry blend and I plan on doing some smoothies with the unsweetened almond milk and the mixed berries instead of ice cream for kaya.

We’ve got some raw shrimp now my tip to my friends and family, and my viewers is, if you want really good shrimp, make sure that you get the tail on peeled and deveined raw shrimp. Do not get the quick shrimp, don’t get the pink stuff because it’ll be overcooked and gross if you want to like saute it up until like a scandi style, so this will be a good meal. Just this with a side of rice and veggie is super yummy.

Potatoes – and these are mostly for kaya – I might have potatoes once in a while, but mostly for Mike and kaya. I’ve got mixed frozen veggies. So this is something that I don’t normally get, but I was craving the catch icahn potpie, so that will definitely be a cheap meal for me, but I figured maybe tonight or tomorrow night. It would make like a really warm yummy chicken pot pie because it’s cold and rainy outside, so these frozen mixed veggies are for that, along with these grand biscuits that I’ll put on top Mike’s going to have to go back and get the chicken breast for it.

But that’s okay, some veggies for the side, we’ve got broccoli and then we’ve got broccoli and cauliflower, so one of these bags will be a side to a meal in here. Like I said, we do a lot more hot dishes and things like that during the winter time. So I’ve got like a bunch of corn here for Tater Tot hot dish which to make it keto. I just take the tater tots off so that it’s just that’s. What the ground beef is for.

That’s there we go Tater Tot hot dish and I’ll just get the tater tots off, so that it’s just corn, hamburger and then cream of mushroom soup in there with a little bit of cheese. On top again, it’s not super healthy, but it’s a good like lazy, keto meals. I’ve got Rotel because I am making enchiladas, which we got gluten-free tortillas this time for the enchiladas. We do like a salsa verde style enchilada, so I’ve got roads, help for that and another can of Rotel back here for right here for like a taco soup, which is good yep, so diced tomatoes we make salsa out of these diced tomatoes and there’s a seasoning Somewhere in here and we’ll get to it eventually, if I can find it, but there’s a seasoning that we use for our salsa, we make our salsa ourselves.

I just have some beef bullion here, and this is what I use in a lot of like soups, and I use this for my roast super good. It’s like a good, not a cream style, but it’s not powdered, it’s more of like a liquid form of bullion. It’s really good. I get a chicken one like this, too cream of mushroom and cream of chicken in here for miscellaneous, the crewmen chicken is for it, the chicken pop hi and then per chicken divan.

I make the good a lazy, keto style, chicken divan and it is fairly low carb, since it’s spread across so many servings. Oh here is that hot sauce mix – this is what we use for our salsa. This is something local to our area. I don’t know if this is something you guys can get on like anywhere else besides within like the Midwest area, but this is super good and die screen Chili’s for the enchiladas.

I’ve got some for cheese, Rosa Alfredo for half the spaghetti. Squash will be used for alfredo half of it will be used for spaghetti. I’ve got some fresh garlic back here or just like diced garlic back here. Let’s see what else is in here, ketchup for kaya because always need ketchup, veggie chips for kaya, because she’s been loving, Pringles lately and I’m trying to find a better alternative. I did find so.

This is totally going to be a cheat, because this is super processed. This is super process, it’s really going to be a cheat, but it looked super yummy, the carbs on it there’s like eight grams of carbs per five serving or per serving in those fights it rings. So it is a little bit higher in the carbs, but it looks so good. The Thai curry chicken yeah. It looks so good and then we’ve got some almonds back here: pups for Ryker baby food for Ryker kya.

This is her treat. I tried to get the Stonyfield organic, but it was literally like three times the price of these were on sale. These are not healthy and I don’t like to get these for kaya very often, but I do like to show you guys that, yes, we are human and we still get like regular, kids food so and then we get this apple juice for kaya. It’s a pure pressed, that’s why it looks so dark and it’s like not clear it’s because it’s not from concentrate it’s really good another treat for kaya.

She was just tossing things in the cart this time and I had no willpower to tell her. No, I don’t even know what this is. It is fruit. Snacks we’ve got some gogo squeeZ, some apple strawberry, a cup from I don’t know, got some oranges. Please little hick come in sighing, hello, guys. We always get these every grocery shopping trip. I’ve got mini bagels. No, these are for kaya for breakfast in the morning, she’s been having like new to green bars, and I do I don’t know.

I wanted to switch it up a little bit for her but she’s very hungry in the morning. So we’ll have these on hand for her breakfast got some bread because Mike and kaya do like to have bread they like to have toast in the morning, so I’m not going to deprive them from it completely. So I’ve got this oat nut bread and then here we’ve just got some ramen again ramen chicken nuggets. These are like things that I like to have on hand for kaya.

If she’s not eating anything else. I at least like to put something in her tummy, and this will do the trick and I might even have one of these for like a cheat meal which is awful but ROM and there’s something about ramen, that I just love but again, not healthy, but nice. To have on hand for the kids, I might even give right here some noodles too. If you make a cup and then I’ve got some. This is like the Uncle Ben’s rice.

It’s just the Target brand got garden vegetable, Spanish style, wild rice and then a whole grain blend with lentils and quinoa. So it’s like brown, rice, lentils and quinoa, and this looks super good, tater tots for Decatur hot hot dish. Again, if I’m going to eat it all these potato tots off of my portion and then hash browns for the kids or hash browns for Kai, I make in the morning once in a while I’ll.

Have these too when I’m doing keto. Like I said, I went on doing lazy keto, I’m mostly just like comp my total cards for the day and make sure that I’m under 50 and that will still get me into ketosis and just maybe not lose as much weight as I could have doing it. A hundred percent put in the fall we like to divulge a little bit, get some casseroles and some soups and some warm things in our tummies but yeah.

This is an overview of all of the food that we got. This is about 240 ish dollars, 230 ish dollars, including all the meat so – and this will last us typically about like 10 to 12, maybe 2 weeks worth of food. All right, you guys, I am going to wrap up the article there for today. I just wanted to include a couple of more comments like I said we based all of our groceries around our meals, our meals.

For this time we’ve got Tater Tot hot dish. We’ve got chicken divan and we’ve got pork chops and veggies roasted veggies chicken breasts and veggies chicken enchiladas chicken pop hi. Let’s see what else do I have a with spaghetti squash, spaghetti, spaghetti squash, Alfredo two meals worth of chicken thighs and then shrimp and veggies? So we’ve got lots of really good things and we’ve got some fish left in the freezer, so the family that we need to eat up.

So this is what we’re going to be eating for the next couple of weeks. All right guys! Thank you. So much for tuning into today’s article. I hope you enjoyed this grocery haul and this meal planning with me, and I will see you guys in a couple of days for the next article. Okay, bye, guys

MEGA $850+ COSTCO GROCERY HAUL 65+ KETO ITEMS WE LOVE AND USE!

We were there all the time anyway. So this list will include over 60 items over $ 800 with the product of the things that we pick up at Costco, and I think it might find that it helps you if you’re not familiar with some of these products or if you don’t go to Costco.

Very often, or if you’re, not even a member, a lot of these things, you can get on Amazon, believe it or not, so you know me I’ll be linking some stuff in the description below anyway yeah. So, stick around see what all the things that we buy are and they’re, certainly even more than that at the store it’s just. This is a list of the things that we use, and this was what three trips right: three trips, three different trips and we’re combining it all into one.

Let’s take someone to talk a little bit about the store itself. We’ve been extremely busy it’s hard to film. In our warehouse one because I work there and everybody wants to chat with me, a lot of the members know who I am so it makes it very disruptive. So we’ve chosen not to actually film while were there, but we did take pictures of the products and price cards when we could, I think, we’re missing one.

Oh yeah yeah. I was putting it together before we did this article to talk about each of these items. So we’ll jump right into it copy draw, let’s start with my favorite cheese, cheese in more cheese and more cheese, that’s Stacey’s department, absolutely I’ve, always loved cheese. Since I was a little kid, we started off with our mozzarella cheese. This is a must-have in our household. At any given time it’s the basis of our Fathead pizzas, you know one of our favorites that we like to do and we did a how-to article.

That’s done very well for us, it is tapas. I usually mix up an egg with a little bit of nacho cheese for a trifle real, quick, absolutely the other staple that we like is the queso chihuahua cheese, chihuahua cheese, it’s about Wawa, cheese, yeah, Greg and Stacey. Kgp dough turned this on to that cheese and it’s definitely been a winner for Stacey. She loves that cheese and then we do taco bowls with it.

Yes are those taco bowls. We use that Kiesel yeah yeah, it’s good cheese, good, good, spicy, cheese. The Mexican cheese is another one. We love to do our tackle shows with the chocolate bowls with the flat breads with yeah. I’ve even seen, Stacey use a mission, carp shell, to make a quesadilla out of that and put it a little bit of jalapeno. Yes, yes, the next one is cheddar cheese, sugar. I can handle cheddar, you can handle again Bill likes to put cheddar on top of his chili yep.

I also put it on my broccoli and I love to make broccoli cheddar soup, with their cheddar cheese. Nope can’t go wrong with that. Can’t go wrong with each other, one of the other, quick and simple snack ideas that I always use as well as our daughters, love are. The mozzarella sticks now, don’t why are they great for snacking they’re great for homemade mozzarella sticks yeah, yeah radio. For that too Parmesan cheese, shakey cheese.

I call it. He always calls it’s tricky because you shake it. Okay, I mix this in with a couple of different recipes that I use even with the flat breads. It just gives a different texture to it, meatballs to the meatballs, and I love it with the parmesan crusted, pork, chops, cheese and texture of crust. That’s what she likes crunch is where it’s at crunches, where it’s at Thursday’s. So now it’s time to talk about the meats.

The one nice thing with Stacey working at Costco is she can get the prime picks of the rib eyes. I know everybody yeah, so we’ve gotten a couple batches of the rib eyes that have just been oh, my gosh perfection. They taste amazing. I even just did a article on how I make my rib eye steak. It’s wonderful! It’s a great treat now and then yeah. Absolutely he always asked after I buy them. He says how’d, it feel like a steak.

Yes – and I love me, the other thing I get from Costco is the chicken thighs they have the boneless chicken thighs and there’s no skin on them. I do grab some from the store that have skin on them as well with the boning, but the ones from Costco are just really nice package. You get a couple in in each package, so I don’t feel like I’m eat wasteful. I can pull out what I need and those chicken thighs are fantastic.

Another thing we get from there is regular ground beef. Now, instead of just getting a regular package of ground beef, we get the tube of ground beef, which is ten pounds. I believe yes just knock on the window, and anybody in the meat department can help you out with the tuba ground beef. It saves you money. Yeah, you get a better price per pound. We had to do the two tube they get into being 30.

40. 50 cents less per pound to do that to so, the tube is definitely worth looking into. If you’re, making a large amount, we tend to cook up that whole tube and put it into snap where and then we put it in the freezer when we pull it. When we want tacos – and we pull it when we want to make something, we also pick up the organic beef from Costco. That’s what I use when I’m going to make our meatballs hamburger patties.

They just definitely are just a really good tasting meat. I love a homemade hamburger for a quick meal bill tends to do for him and Julia the. I think it’s 1/3 pound beef, patty yeah that are possible from casco just fast and easy yeah. I like the home, cooked ones. Another thing that goes along with the meat very well is the rails, marinara sauce. We use that for our meatballs. We use it for all kinds of things.

Actually, I’ve even just made ground beef and put some rails and some shaky Parmesan cheese on it and just eat it like that, because that’s just how I roll sometimes it’s true, but the rails is great for a treat now and then, and we did pick up Recently here the beef pot roast it’s got a gravy in it and it’s got the beef in it. Oh my gosh, that’s a really nice little treat now and then to pick up.

This doesn’t really like that, but I love it. Next would be the roasted garlic sausage, it’s kind of like a Polish, a little bit like a hot dog. Oh my gosh, they’re, so good. I use them on the COS ass, a little spinning thing that cooks them up and gives them a nice crust. Love that thing another thing I always grab when I go in as a treat now man, maybe once a month I’ll, grab a rotisserie chicken, it’s already pre-made, I just strip it out.

I like to eat the thighs Stacy likes the chicken breast part, so she’ll tear that up and put it on a salad or something I just like the taste of it. I know that some people have issues with that, so I don’t do it very often, but I do like it chicken strips oh, my gosh. These are great. We use them without fredo sauce. We mix it in with a little bit of like ground, pepper and some garlic and some onion powder, because Stacy doesn’t like expiry things and it makes for a wonderful meal Stacy likes.

This is already precooked too, so you could throw it on top of the salad fast and easy just measure out a couple ounces, throw it on top that alfredo chicken is fantastic. Absolutely. I also like to do a couple ounces, usually about two ounces of the chicken strips and I’ll. Just do like a ranch dressing or Caesar dressing as a dipping sauce and I’m good to go, gives you a meal because you got a protein yeah and of course, you can’t go to Costco without buying bacon right bacon.

I buy the four packs of bacon a times. That’s the magic word of the article bacon yeah, you know we buy the four packs of bacon from Costco and Nightrain ration knows out to about once a week. The other thing for a bacon I use is the crumbles. The little crumbles I use those mainly in salads if we ever do make like a little quesadilla with that Mexican cheese or queso cheese, I’ll, throw some bacon bits in with that, of course, on the fat head pizzas, he has bacon and I do have it on The fat head – pizzas, yeah, that’s a staple got bacon, got ta, have the bacon absolutely oh and then add words to build omelets yeah.

I forgot about that yeah I put some bacon crumble, sometimes in an omelet, real, quick. This me it turns out. You know what happens is I start an omelet and it ends up being scrambled eggs. So you know he always eggs yeah. So that’s how that works, and last time I meet list would be tail off fruit. I love this stuff. I throw some of the pan with some vegetables a little bit of olive oil, so some of that gee use teriyaki sauce mix that all up cook it up.

Oh my gosh, it’s amazing! Next to a steak or a piece of chicken, it’s just fantastic! You! You owe it to yourself to try. These almonds happens to be one of my absolute favorites. I love them by themselves, but I actually really like to pair the almonds with extra sharp cheddar cheese, see that just doesn’t sound like a good combo, and I like both of those things. I just don’t think I want them together.

You know, and the funny thing is I would have never eaten them together, but I think my taste buds have changed slightly. Walnuts is another thing that we always have here at the house. I do a lot of baking with the walnuts our Kido mug cake has walnuts. Peekytoe moose has walnuts. You can’t go wrong with two ounces of walnuts in your hand, yeah. We always have 200 snack bags of walnuts and almonds in the and sometimes of academia TIFF.

We have them yeah and in the refrigerator, so there’s like a grab and go back for any of us that need to grab something to go. Yes, keeps you keeps you honest now the macadamia nuts. I have to be careful with those because our youngest daughter – yes, she tried it for the first time at Gregg and Stacy’s with Kazu Kido, I had to keep taking the bag away from her about Mike stop yeah she’s just sitting there eating them like it’s popcorn, Yeah and they’re like leave her alone, let her eat them.

I’m like no okay, it’s back to me now and these little beef sticks I find are fantastic for on-the-go. I actually grabbed the big pack. I think there’s 28 in the pack and – and I throw a couple of my car for a couple because you don’t have to refrigerate them even and and I always grab a big handful of them. And I give my daughter at college because I wanted to have something in their backpack between classes or one, not if she’s in a rush and then just they taste, wonderful and they’re, just so convenient in their own little packages.

Also, we found a new product at Costco called the keto snack mix. This is something great to sit down with a small bowl if you’re going to read like TV or something and you kind of Miss having that little snack, this will fit the bill perfectly. Also, these little cheese wisps are pretty darn good in a little Bowl. If you want a little snack, too kind of an indulgent thing, just sit down with little balls.

Those just measure him out follow the basics. Yeah next are the folio wraps. Everybody was talking about these before Costco had them, and the buzz was just crazy online about it. When we finally got him, I said: oh, we got to get them, who got trying well I’ll, tell you what the texture of them they’re very slick and smooth is not for me. I tried to do a tack on them. I tried to do some lunch meat in them.

They’re. Just not my thing: they don’t taste horrible they’re, just it’s a texture thing and I normally wouldn’t say I’m a texture person, but Stacy ate them now onto the baking stuff. For me, at any given time, we always have at least a couple dozen eggs in the house a couple dozen. What are you talking about six to eight dozen in almost any time, so maybe a few dozen more than a couple yeah we buy the organics and that’s what I use when I’m doing omelets in the morning, primarily for truffles and omelets, I use the organics any Baking thing I do the arena cakes as well.

Now I do buy the regular eggs, our youngest daughter and our old Center love Excel. It now eats up eggs right yeah. Whenever I’m making excelled, I’m usually using eight to ten eggs and they both love. It Carrie gold is another. One of our staples Billy says Kerry gold, probably more than I do yeah I do every morning for ages. I use Terry gold. He hasn’t done it in the coffee, yet he can’t have to do that boy yeah! I don’t do that stuff at Costco as well as I always have the unsalted butter.

We have quite a few recipes that call for the unsalted butter, so it’s ready yeah. So I always make sure I have that on hand and ready to go Philadelphia, Cream Cheese. An absolute staple in the house why go ahead be took dad had pizza, that’s the only thing. I know we use it for there’s a couple other recipes, but also call for the Philadelphia Cream Cheese, but the fact that is the majority of our cream cheese.

So another two bags table that we have in our house is almond flour. Many many many recipes call for the almond flour, so we always have at least two bags on and at any given time. The other thing that we keep on hand is the baking cocoa you’ve done a couple different articles with that the mug cakes things of that nature, so it’s always good to have for a sweet treat the one thing that surprised me is every time we would go To Kroger or somewhere she’d say pick up some vanilla extract and that little bottle was like nine dollars, twelve dollars, something like that right well, Tosca might be a little more expensive on the initial purchase, but what you get for that price? Amazing! Let me tell you it’s 30 bucks and after the vanilla extract yeah, I figure out how many asks you.

37. 28 bucks yeah. It definitely is a game changer when it comes to purchasing vanilla, especially if you’re going to use it for more than one recipe. The birch benders keto pancake mix is amazing. Let me tell you when we buy that stuff at the store we get a lot smaller bag and it costs eight or nine dollars. This thing is like three times the amount for just a little bit more. So definitely if you use that product, this is the way to go, get it at Costco.

Another thing we buy in bulk, obviously at Costco is my broccoli. I have five ounces of broccoli next to a piece of meat, probably at least four times a week. I, like this stuff, super easy, throw it in the microwave I split it up, and then I have a few meals. I do meal prep in containers and I set it all aside and then I eat that for the next couple days. The broccoli is awesome and then I steal the broccoli to put in with my chicken in alfredo sauce, even for your soup and for my soup.

Yep another thing to put next to a piece of chicken in the afternoon, for me at least, is the Caesar salad kit. Now I don’t use the Cutrone’s, I do use those the dressing experian there, but I really like their Caesar salad kits. Stacy does too so when we open the back, we get about three to four servings out of that bag, so we’re in the produce department of Costco you’ll notice. Everything is a little bigger.

I really like their mushrooms there I cut those up. I wash them. I cut them up, I throw I want to p.M. A little olive oil man, they’re they’re, just awesome, and the next thing on the list here is we grab and we’re going to try hava kado again, I don’t know we’ll do another article of it, but we’re Going to try them again, because I know that there’s some great benefits too, you know and they say your taste buds changed and they say your taste much change, so we’re going to give it another.

Try one more try, but there won’t be a article this time. I also grabbed a baggie, these mixed peppers now and then I just wash them up cut them up and again fry them up in a pan, real quick, so tasty so good for you really good stuff. We just tried this bag of cauliflower rice. I have not made it yet. My intention is to use a little bit of soy a little bit of teriyaki, sauce and fry it up in a pan with some butter and see.

If I can replicate something close to a fried rice, it might be disgusting. I don’t know, the other thing you can do is throw some salt, pepper and butter on it and try and eat it as a side dish and again haven’t done it yet. So let me know in the comments if you have and what do you think of it or the best way to make it. Everybody knows we’re not doing sugar on keto right. So the monk fruit from LA canto is is a great substitute.

It’s kind of like swerve to Stacie uses in her recipes mm-hmm. Everybody knows I have a sweet tooth, so I tend to do more of the sweet treats so that I don’t feel like. I need to go away from quito when I want something sweet yeah and that be used a little bit of coffee here, and there too, I actually use the monk fruit drops as well. Yeah so see there, either or depending on what we have most of at that time.

Now, with the avocados remember how we talked about trying the avocado skin, which we will do, but we do use the avocado oil and we do use the avocado spray yeah. What kind of oil I’m used for vegetables sometimes instead of olive oil and the avocado spray I use for things? I don’t want to stick like if I put some parchment paper down or some foil down and I’m going to make something in the oven like the tortilla chips or I don’t know anything, I could spray a little bit of the avocado spray and nothing sticks and That kind of replaces those old canola sprays that we used to use all the time.

Oliver can’t go wrong, use the heck out of it. I use it a lot. I do it mainly for vegetables, I’ll, put vegetables and mix them up with some garlic and stuff love. Love, love the stuff. Yes, and I use it when I do the crispy chicken or the parmesan crusted pork chops and coconut oil ain’t bad either. I’ve tried some of that in the pan and mixed up some things. It doesn’t really have like a super strong, coconutty taste to it.

To me it is pretty good and you used it for fat bombs. Yeah I’ve tried a couple of fat bombs with the coconut oil. They always call for a dark chocolate. I’m not a fan of dark chocolate, so I’m I found I haven’t, found a really good fat bomb for me with that. Quite yet, but we’ll see cilantro lime, crema, this stuff is awesome again. Greg and Stacey turned us on to this from kzp dough. We were out there in Kalamazoo doing something and we were making taco balls.

I think that day – and you know goods like hey, have you tried this so no haven’t tried, it tried it and guess what we’re buying it a pretty regular basis. Every time we make anything, it has a type of meat or type of bass with a taco ball, I’m putting that stuff on it. I love the taste. True story, true story, I see, I see we do use a lot of spices. I now make my own taco seasoning mix yep in Julie labels and Bill.

Does his chicken rub, so we always have a ton of spaces. We try to get the big bottles when we can. Paprika is one of the big ones that we can get from Casco. We use paprika often the pure sea salt is something we always have on hand and goes in almost everything that we cook a lot of the recipes that we do and definitely a staple. In pepper. We use a lot of pepper in this house. We are not afraid of pepper, not afraid of pepper.

So if I make pigs in the morning, I’m putting pepper and salt every day, yes, but lots of pepper, definitely in a lot of recipes yeah. The other thing is the pink Himalayan sea salt. We have it on hand, then you have quite a few recipes that will call for that too adds a different flavor to it. So that’s pretty good as well, not my favorite honestly, but I know it’s good for you and we do use it yeah in the recipes.

It kind of hides it a little bit right. No, I wouldn’t put that in my eggs just personally but yeah. It’s not bad when she puts in their recipe and all you did that way, sneak it in minced garlic. We use the heck out of this stuff. We do almost all the meats that we make. We use the minced garlic and on our fat head Pizza, vegetables. All kinds of places every time you turn around pulling out the mince garlic so now onto some of the drinks, we have an RO system here at home and I love it and we’ve added some minerals and some other things into that, our own filtering system.

So I tend to drink a majority. That’s a eight! Even ninety percent of my drinking is water and I drink a lot. But when we go to Costco we splurge occasionally we buy like the propel zero. I love that stuff and I really like the way that that comes in a variety pack, so you don’t get tired of one flavor. You grab one this day and you grab another one a different day and another drink we’ve tried. It recently was the I believe they call it.

Bai Bai they’re, pretty good too. They have a different taste to them, but it’s just something to throw into the refrigerator and have as a an offering or a different taste. If you just want to grab and go with something last time, the drink list is, if is, if you haven’t tried these, give them a try. Costco sells a variety pack and they’re, really pretty good. Yes, I’ll grab my drink of water, I’ll grab a bottle of water.

Take a few drinks first put, the zip is in shake it up. Trust me trust me if you have never done this before take a few drinks first put. The zip is in then put the cap on and shake it up, because if you don’t get him a mess like I did so just you know, take care of ice before key Tori needs to be a really heavy milk drinker. Yes, you do every day every day had to have my milk, but I had stronger bones.

That’s true! So now I always have a little bit of almond milk on hand great for recipes and just to have a sip of milk, so in the health beauty in pharmacy area of Costco. Two of the things that I use are the apple cider, vinegar capsules. I like those because just kids teased about the cider vinegar, so I’m trying to get the outside the vinegar in in a different form in a capsule form, so I’m trying to do good right and the other thing I use from that area is super beet complex.

I take that every day as well. For me, I use the nature’s bounty, hair, skin and nails. I’ve been using that for about six months and definitely notice the difference. Yeah, you are having some trouble of hair loss in the beginning. I think right yeah. However, I find out now that it’s pretty menopause causing the hair loss, not Kido – oh geez, sorry, but it does help your hair skin and nails alright, but it does okay, a few staples that we have that I used almost every time I do any baking is Parchment paper are usually yeah, can’t have enough parchment paper, it’s great.

So, when you’re rolling out the dough’s yeah, it’s not sticking to your rolling. Pin it’s not sticking to your hands. That’s sticking to the counter! It comes right off when you’re done baking. I’ve even used it to make bacon yeah deep, well sheet. Aluminum, foil is also something that we keep on hand it’s great when you have to let something set up, and we want to cover it when you put it in the refrigerator, and it’s also really nice to store things with as well.

Yep. Their foil is thicker. Next, on my list are the vinyl gloves bill makes fun. I don’t like to touch raw meat so, but he’s the final whoops and it works well for me, are you sold now read means I don’t like to touch the meat, it’s a texture thing, but I will tell you garbage bags. We go through a ton, more garbage bags because we’re cooking all fresh now, cooking at home and cookie, more real foods, yeah yeah, definitely stead throwing on a McDonald’s bag, we’re making all this food and then all the waste of that food or the XS or the Skins or whatever all goes in the garbage, absolutely there must have yeah, and I like that.

Garbage bag safer, archaeans well and we just go through so many of them and they were so economical compared to just going and buying a smaller package or get ripped off with us at the store. She knows that’s one of the reasons I do love Kasich. Oh, hey, it’s flu season, guys and also everybody’s all worked up about this coronavirus stuff too, but basically it is flu season. Don’t forget that? Yes, so we go through a lot of tissue in this house with the kids and everything and then when Lauren comes home she takes some tissue back to the dorms.

I think she feeds everybody else to eat it, but we do go through a lot, so we buy in bulk at Costco. We use the heck out of it and I really like it. Yeah Clorox wipes goes right along with that we’re always sanitized and everything whitening things down doorknobs. When Julie comes home from school, I cringed to think of all the things that she’s touched along the way, and I want her to wash her hands when she comes home from school.

I know that might be a little crazy, but then I grab a clerics clock and I’m getting the door knobs and anything else is she talks before she came in okay, just because I’m kind of weird like that and don’t forget to wake your fridge handles the Last two things on the list for today are not Kido but definitely staples in the household we use everybody’s advice, household, the tide and UNSTOPABLES cuz you’ve got us no good yeah.

You got ta smell, good and here’s the thing you get more for your money, more volume for the price, I believe at least at Cosmo. So when we do know, we pick up the tide, we pick up the downy or the fabric sheets. So that’s the majority of the things that we buy when we go to Costco. Hopefully you got some new ideas. You know we did quite a few items here on these last three trips that we shared with you guys.

So maybe in the comments below, let us know what your favorite things from Costco are. If we didn’t cover one of them, let us know, because I’d like to look for it and start using it, possibly absolutely yeah. So that’s how we all learn. So thanks for joining us and keep it keto, you

The diet go pick anymore. I only buy my love. Sweet’ n go PT yeah, so I have two small bottles to the large bottles.

All of my drinks that I have today should last for the next two or three weeks. All right, then I picked up some Swiss cheese. It was quick sale for sale by the 21st.

I also got these spicy pickles great value brand. They used to make them by Clausen and they were delicious. They were in the chill section. They don’t have them anymore.
