New Shopping Items

Filed under: Bellingham local,local,Pacific Northwest — Bellinghamster @ 4:26 pm

I have added 3 new items to my Costco shopping list: organic quinoa, Clif ZBars and Medjool dates.

Clif Zbars are organic energy bars for kids. They come in three flavors:  chocolate brownie, chocolate chip and honey graham. Ever try to find an energy bar where the protein source is NOT nuts? Your search is over. Be aware, these may have traces, but my family is OK with traces; it’s the chunks that give us hives and wheezes. No GMO’s and the protein is from soy.

Organic quinoa is a staple in our kitchen. It looks similiar to couscous, but is crunchier and has a nutty taste. It is the perfect protein, nutrient dense grain all but 1 person will eat. We are moving on from Dom DeLuise’s Lasagna to organic quinoa  beef stir fries. We have different comfort foods now. See Raw Energy Balls.

Have you ever had Medjool Dates? Well, I’ve been a little late coming on the scene with this fruit. But let me tell you, it’s my favorite. Especially frozen. You should try freezing fruit – it is very satisfying to eat. You won’t even miss cow’s milk ice cream. Much. The only thing you’ll find in these dates are pits. No preservatives. So don’t break a tooth. It’ll cost you.

Clif ZBars 24 1.27oz bar variety pack @ $10.79
Sun Date Medjool Dates 2lb @ $7.99
truRoots organic Quinoa 4lb @ $10.99
