I am a HUGE fan of Cosco because, well.. both Matthew Barney (my fiance) and I eat a LOT.  Every 2-4 weeks I go and grab pretty much the same stuff.  I rarely venture from this list.

MEAT!  Cosco does a great job of carrying good quality meat, organic and fresh.

  • We like the organic boneless , skinless chicken thighs
  • Organic ground turkey
  • Organic ground beef
  • Tuna

FRUIT!

  • Frozen berries (we like the mixed berry blends for smoothies and healthy ice cream)
  • Bananas.. duh!
  • Organic apples (pink lady of course!)
  • Cara Cara oranges… the only kind I buy!  Always juicy.
  • Avocados

Paisley’s Famous Homemade Chocolate

  • 1/2c melted coconut oil
  • 1/2c UNsweetened cocoa
  • A pinch of sea salt
  • I use stevia to sweeten.. But lots of recipes call for 1-2 T Honey.
  • I have added vanilla, almonds, peanut butter… endless ideas!

Gently melt coconut oil in a saucepan over medium-low heat, or melt in microwave.  Stir cocoa powder, whatever sweetener you like, and vanilla extract into melted oil until well blended. Pour mixture into a candy mold or pliable tray. Refrigerate until chilled, about 1 hour.
