Shopping for Organic / Non-GMO / Vegan Food at Costco Wholesale Supermarket

Shopping for Organic / Non-GMO / Vegan Food at Costco Wholesale Supermarket

For more info, check out

About a month ago or so, I decided to check out Costco Wholesale Supermarket and I was shocked at all the organic, non-GMO, vegan, whole plant food I was able to find. There was produce, frozen vegetables and fruits, dried fruit, spreads like hummus, jelly, and guacamole, veggie juices, coconut water, cereals, plant milks, pasta, rice, soups, and so much more! Costco is great because not only can you find all these awesome organic, non-GMO, vegan food, but you also save a lot of money by buying food in bulk!

When I was a kid, we would shop at Costco but we didn’t buy what you saw in this video; we bought A LOT of junk food such as meat, dairy, cheese puffs, chips, candy, and chocolates. I am amazed how much a huge wholesaler has transformed in the past decade into a giant health promoting supermarket. Don’t get me wrong, there is still plenty of junk food in Costco. Always read the food labels and the ingredients list for packages as they still may contain animal-derived products such as eggs, dairy, honey, gelatin, etc. Don’t be fooled by the front cover. Anyway, here are a few items I found at Costco that were plant-based. Enjoy!

Shopping Organic: How to shop for organic, GMO free food without pulling your hair out…

Please watch: “Where’s the B12? Is the Vegan Diet Really Nature’s Way?”

How are we supposed to stop large companies like Monsanto who are only concerned with profit at the expense of our own health and animal welfare? Shopping organic can be tricky if you haven’t done it before. The answer is one step at a time. This video describes my first time at an organic grocery store, Whole Foods in Schaumburg, Illinois and a couple basic steps toward success. Avoid GMO food…consider animal welfare…avoid pesticides and herbicides…start now! Whether to choose organic food vs. non-organic food is just one of dozens of decisions you probably make every time you go grocery shopping. Choosing organic food supports farmers and producers who believe in good health, quality foods and earth-friendly (though some like to say eco-friendly) sustainable agricultural practices. Organic products are grown in environmentally friendly ways, without toxic or persistent agricultural chemicals. Organic agriculture is a production method that emphasizes the use of renewable resources and the conservation of soil and water to enhance environmental quality. 1.2 billion pounds of pesticides are used in this country every year, and non-organic produce is 4 times more likely than organic to contain some level of residue. Organic produce generally only has residues about 20% of the time, and that’s generally in very trace levels.
