I saw this thread on Costco finds. Right now we're weighing whether or not to switch from Sam's Club to Costco when our Sam's membership runs out this summer, and at the core of this decision is the quality and prices of paleo-friendly items available. It occurred to me that there might be paleo foodstuffs that I haven't even noticed before as being available at Sam's, so tell me:
What paleo-friendly items do you buy at Sam's Club? I would LOVE it also if you can post approximate or exact pricing.
I'll kick it off with items we sometimes buy on our Sam's Club jaunts (about 1x/month) with approximate pricing:
*ETA: I am not asking for commentary on me buying organic milk v. raw milk, pasteurized v. unpasteurized. This question is not about analyzing my personal once monthly Sam's run grocery list, it is about us all sharing which groceries we buy at Sam's and at what prices, as a basis of comparison against what is available elsewhere and determining whether Sam's Club membership is worthwhile depending on each reader's own dietary choices within a loose paleo/lacto-paleo framework.
I don't find much at Sam's. Here is what I do buy. They occasionally have organic raspberries, the organic spinach, huge thing of pre peeled garlic. I have never seen organic eggs or kerrygold butter there. I may have to look closer! Have you looked into raw milk? Weston Price has a lot of information on why raw milk is best!
You don't have to be a Costco member to go in and poke around. Just tell them you're interested in becoming a member but you want to look around first before you make your decision. That way, perhaps, you can see what is available at your local Costco and compare prices before making any sort of commitment. :)
Re. the "organic milk". It's organic, but it is also usually ultra-pasteurized, meaning it was heated to 280 degrees for X seconds. Not necessarily bad (unless you're in the raw milk faction), just means it's more processed.
