Diabetic Friendly Foods to Buy at Costco

I love working with different grocery stores exploring the healthy options that they have available. I have worked with Aldi and Sam's Club showcasing my favorite products that they sell. I had the opportunity to check out Costco for healthy items. I am not a member of Costco currently but had a blast finding out the awesome items that they sell. These are some of the Diabetic Friendly Foods to Buy at Costco. When I walked into Costco, I found many different healthy and fresh foods available.

Diabetic Friendly Foods to Buy at Costco

-Fruit! All kinds of fruits including nectarines, mangoes, apples, sliced fresh fruit bowls, grapes and more.

-Veggies galore!- I was very impressed with the amount of organic options that Costco had for sale. I had no idea that they sold so many organic foods. They had an awesome squash mix that I want to try. Other healthy options are organic baby carrots, min bell peppers, green beans, lots of salad and more.

-Whole-grains- Kashi Organic Promise Sprouted Grains cereal, organic quinoa, old-fashioned and steel cut oats, flax and chia seeds.

-Proteins- Costco had my favorite veggie burger which is MorningStar Farms chipotle black bean burgers. They also had edamame, salmon, turkey burgers, organic canned beans and boneless skinless chicken breasts.

-Various healthy favorites- Plain Greek yogurt, fresh salsa (Garden Fresh is awesome!), almond milk, guacamole and more.

Diabetes is a disease that many people are affected with. As a dietitian, I work with many patients with diabetes. The good thing is that diabetics have so many food options available to them. I believe that most foods can fit into a diabetic diet, in moderation of course. Costco had many healthy foods for people with diabetes such as fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, protein rich foods and dairy products. 

As you can see, Costco has many different products that can be beneficial to diabetics. If you have diabetes or are at risk for diabetes, I recommend following a healthy eating lifestyle to best manage your diabetes and to help prevent diabetes.
