    It's COSTCO time... what are some of your favorite foods from there?

    well its been a rough couple of weeks with midterms and programs. This caused my food supply to become pretty much depleted, so this friday is going to be costco day and was wondering if you guys could let me know some of your favorite food items from there.(both healthy and a little unhealthy...but mostly healthy). im trying to shift my diet from a college students diet to a more well rounded diet that would enfore "the 7 habits".

    thanks for your input!

    They have individually packed bags of jerky. It tastes good. It's a little sweeter than I like, but good for the price.

    Olive Oil. Canola Oil.

    Tuna. Canned salmon. Smoked salmon.

    Fish oil caps. Flax oil caps (if you're so inclined (I'm not))

    They have huge bags of spinach for very little money. Bell peppers are cheap, too. The whole veggie section is good, as long as your eating a lot of veggies.

    Cottage cheese is cheap there, provided you like that brand and can deal with the big tubs.

    Eggs are VERY cheap. Good for all the egg whites, and cheap enough to not feel guilty about tossing the yolks.

    Chicken Breasts, Protein Powder, tuna fish, frozen vegetables, steak, lobster, I can't think of anything else. Oh yeah tubs of cottage cheese, fish oil capsules and multi-vitamins.

    BTW one of my bros goes to UCSB he drinks 24/7 if you're thinking about eating clean instead of partying what's up with that? If you're doing that you should transfer to UC Davis or some school that is less of a party school. But that's just me.

    other: fresh veggies and fruit, frozen veggies, eggs, egg beaters, salmon, chicken breasts

    I love Coctco.

    damn all that stuff is sounding sooooo good right now. cant wait to go.


    (hey bobby whats your bro's major, year, and name, i might know him. As for "eating clean instead of partying" both can be done in my opinion, plus you dont need to be bellig'd/faded to have fun out here.)

    They also sell cases of power bars for pretty reasonable prices.

    Splenda, don't forget Splenda. Giant bags of it that last a long time!

    OK, Kashi GoLean Crunch, that's a good one. The whole family likes that.

    Chicken Sausage, Turkey Bacon, Bags of Frozen Chicken Breasts. Yum!

    Have fun, bring lots of money. I've never (over 8 years) spent less than $100.

    I got some frozen salmon burgers on my last visit. They're great - wild salmon, canola oil and spices. Cheaper than regular salmon, tasty, and very convenient.

    By the way, the protein powder there is milk protein concentrate and milk protein isolate. If I understand John Berardi's explanation correctly, those are the things to look for to make sure that your powder is both casein and whey proteins.

    their trail mix is pretty good, I add some almonds to it (already has a lot in there, but more is good too)

    One more thing. Fresh Salsa! It comes in a large refrigerated container (maybe 32 oz?).

    Great big chunks of tomato and onion. Works great in the morning omelet
