Being healthy should be our number one priority. How can you ever take over the world if you’re sick all the time? It would be pretty hard to do so. Exercise is one thing that helps to keep people healthy. The food you eat is also very important. Eating too much fast food can cause loads of problems. Cooking and eating healthy foods is the way to go. Many stores sell healthy items. Today, I want to discuss a store called Costco and some of the healthy items that they sell.
What is Costco?
Costco is a membership-only warehouse club. They have a huge selection of items. It is the second largest retailer in the world. Costco has several locations across the world. There are over 500 warehouses in the United States. According to Fortune, Costco is the world’s number 1 retailer of prime beef, rotisserie chicken, and organic foods.
As I stated earlier, you have to buy a membership to get access to Costco. There are three membership types. The first membership is called the Gold Star. It costs $55 plus tax. It includes a free household card, and it is valid at all Costco locations worldwide. The next membership is the Business membership. It also costs $55 plus tax. It includes a free household card and is also valid at all locations. You can add affiliate cardholders for $55 each. You can also purchase this type of membership for resale. The final type of membership is called the Executive. Its annual fee is $110 plus taxes. The major difference with this membership is that you get an annual 2% reward on qualified Costco purchases, you get additional benefits and greater discounts on services, and you get extra benefits on select Costco travel products.
Costco sounds like a pretty good store to shop at. They have excellent customer service and a great selection of items to choose from. Below are seven different healthy foods that they sell.
Costco has a huge variety of fruits and veggies to choose from. Many of them are organic, which is the best way to go.
Chia seeds are very healthy. They are full of antioxidants, protein, fiber and omega 3’s.
There are many different types of flax oil out there. A favorite brand that Costco sells is Hain Pure Foods Organic oil. You can use it for a lot of different dishes. It is an excellent source of Omega 3’s.
These are one of my favorites. Costco has a nice selection of organic, dried fruit. They are very affordable.
There are way too many spices to list here. A few that they sell are garlic, paprika, and cayenne pepper.
One particular brand that people should look out for is called the Food Should Taste Good Multigrain Tortilla Chips. They are gluten free.
Costco sells a lot of good bread. One brand, Dave’s Killer Bread is a top choice for whole grain bread.
Costco has a well-deserved reputation for quality and good customer service. Part of this is their return policy – they will take pretty much anything back, provided that the sale was completed in less than 90 days.
