Has anyone tried this brand? I like the taste of Nutiva (which is more expensive) - does it taste as good?

Im not so sure about this brand. Perhaps the batch I got from Marc's grocery was tainted. Was a good deal $ wise, and I don't think it was rancid... just smelled a little funny. I used half the container but since then Ive purchased a... (more)

I've found that Costco is about as hip as a large mega-chain can get. The Costcos in Arizona were quick to stock coconut oil/almond butter/Kerrygold/grass fed beef/etc. and I often find a good selection of local products, such as a delightful... (more)

Are you referring to the Wholly Guacamole they sell? I used to buy a lot of that. The ingredient list looked perfectly paleo.

I don't rely on Costco for staples anymore. Every time I did, that particular item happened to disappear, never to return. I am being completely serious.

I am really enjoying these wild alaskan pacific frozen cod filets I got from costco. What is the omega-3 content in these like? Is this a good choice to eat for dinner 3-4 nights per week? Is this a very nutritious fish?

SteveParkerMD 0 · October 16, 2011 at 10:37 AM

According to NutritionData (http://nutritiondata.self.com/) raw Pacific cod has 188 mg of omega-3 fatty acids per 3 ounces (85 g). In case you worry about contamination with mercury or polychlorinated biphenyls, I've never seen a case of those in... (more)

I was in my local Costco this weekend and discovered a 3 lbs pack of Organic Ranchers ground beef for $13.99 ($4.66/lbs). While it doesn't label the meat as "grass-fed", a visit to their website says that their cows are grass-fed. Although their... (more)

Yes, it is farmed animals and they don't disclose the source of the animals. Wild boar, confusingly, is the species, not whether or not it's wild. Farmed game eat some grains and some wild forage. Additionally, some of these sausages also contain... (more)

I can't find any info about that brand anywhere online, including the Costco site. However, the one brand of organic beef they do list online says pasture-raised but also "organic vegetarian feed." In my experience, organic does not mean... (more)

Costco (USA) sells a rack of Australian lamb chops. They're quite tasty and not too expensive. Anyone know if this source is pastured? Is pastured (weaned I suppose) lamb as omega-3 balanced as grassfed beef? I love the latter, but I'm tiring of... (more)

I am 99% sure they are grass-fed if they from here in Oz. In fact, I am not even sure they'd eat grain. There is nothing like a good lamb chop - if you are cooking them on the BBQ (which is undoubtedly the best way), right at the end of cooking,... (more)
