It’s all in there

I am a big fan of big things. I like Charles more now that he is bigger. He finally cracked the 200# mark. There aren’t enought places where weight gain is celebrated. Pregnant Clancy will always be my favorite Clancy. I like packages of toilet paper that are so big it is the only item I can carry in from the car on a single trip even though it weighs about 4 pounds. I like big dumpers and I LOVE Costco. It is my protein palazzo. At least once a week a stranger stops me on the street or in a store to make a comment about my arms. If often get the question “what do I gotta do to look like you man?” which makes sense because the answer will probably only take 30 seconds and you will follow through 100% on what I tell you while we stand in line for groceries. Anyhow part of that answer is Costco. It is where muscle food comes from. The paleo mama put up a pretty good post on Costco shopping that I thought I would share. There is a lot of good stuff in there. You don’t have to stick with the salted cashews and triple wide boxes of GoLean Crunch although now that I said that I want it. I am not going to eat it. But I want it. It sounds almost as good as the can of tuna that I just ate.

Check out the post here on paleo shopping at Costco. I don’t agree with everything she has on the list but it is a good place to start. I found it interesting that she listed quinoa as a “grey area” food which was followed on the list by agave nectar, honey, and maple syrup. Let’s be clear. If you are trying to get leaner then those three things have no place in your shopping cart. That being said for the fortunate folks who have eaten the fabulous confections that come from the HoPad you are experienced epic deliciousness that is sweetened with only dates. NO SUGAR! Agave, honey, maple, or otherwise.

  1. Thanks for sharing my Costco list! Quinoa is “grey” because it is, indeed, a seed. Of course, you should be aware of the effect it has on your body and it is rather high in the glycemic index. I didn’t take the time to explain every single food to my readers. I just provided a simple list that people can go off of. So many don’t know where to start. I, also, am not a fan of Agave but I provided the information because people buy this stuff. Honey and maple syrup are used by many Paleo people…not if you are strict Paleo, Whole30 or 21DSD. Your convictions about certain products and your preference on what Paleo is to you, should not stop at the door when walking into Costco!
