The Ultimate Whole30 Costco Shopping Guide – an extensive list and photos of everything that is Whole30 compliant at Costco. Updated as of January 2019.

Costco grocery cart filled with whole30 approved food items

Costco is an amazing grocery store to stock up on food. You save a ton of money when buying in bulk. Ever wondered what is Whole30 approved at Costco? I’ve compiled the ultimate list for you, complete with photos of every item to make your shopping experience as easy possible.

And by ultimate, I mean *ultimate*. I spent almost 4 hours reading the labels of every. single. item. at Costco so you won’t have to.

Before we start, a little information. First, if you’re new to Whole30, I have a Whole30 beginners guide where I share everything you need to know about Whole30. Includes compliant foods, other grocery store guides, how to stock your pantry, 100’s of free recipes, meal plans and more!

Second, products can vary from Costco to Costco and season to season. For example, in the summer you’ll find watermelon in stock at Costco, in the winter you’ll find butternut squash. I did this shopping guide in January 2019 at my Costco in Danville, California.

Third, be sure to follow me on Instagram! I share new Whole30 Costco finds and grocery store hauls weekly! You can also check out this Instagram Story Highlight on all new finds at Costco.

Fourth, a bonus tip! Costco offers free 2-day delivery on their non-perishable items! This is a great way to save time and get Whole30 Costco items delivered directly to your door. Perfect for stocking up on nuts, cooking oils, canned goods, etc. For perishable items, look in to Instacart, which does Costco same day delivery for an additional fee.
