Keto Approved Costco Shopping List

Keto Approved Shopping List

Having access to a wholesale club like Costco can make stocking up on some of the Keto essentials a much more affordable task. You still have to watch out for all of those tempting samples that they are so famous for handing out, as most of those are still not going to be keto-friendly. I hjave been shopping at Costco for years, and I have been stocking up on my Keto-approved foods there too. There are quite a few items that I probably could not live without around the house that help make sure that I always have a variety of food choices for various snacks and recipes.

This list is not 100% comprehensive, meaning that there are going to be food items that I missed that would still be Keto. I just wanted to compile a large list of foods that you may want to stock up on, while taking advantage of your Costco membership. Just because you are choosing to eat the Keto way of eating doesn’t mean that you have to run to specialty grocery stores all the time to get the foods you need to eat healthy.

If you know of some of the other foods at Costco that I missed (there will be quite a few I’m sure), please feel free to leave that information in the comments below so that other people can discover them too.

Feel free to print out this list and take it with you as a reminder when you head to Costco the next time. If you don’t have a Costco membership, or just prefer to purchase through Amazon, I have linked many of the items below so you can add those to your cart and order through Amazon too. Sometimes prices can be higher or lower at Costco compared to Amazon, depending on what the item is and what seller you purchase it for, FYI. Prices will typically be SIGNIFICANTLY cheaper at Costco in person.

If you would also like to print out my Keto Approved Sam’s Club Shopping List, you can do that here.

You can access our Keto Approved Trader Joe’s Shopping List here.

      1. Can you do one for bj wholesale?

        1. Possibly. They don’t have one in my state so I will need to look up where I can get to one.

          1. Can you do Sam’s club also? Please and thank you!

          2. Yvonne, we have one for Sam’s Club already 🙂

        2. Pachamama Essential Wellness

          That would be helpful.

        3. Yes! We are down to just BJs and a new Costco (finallllly) that’s way far away. So BJs it is for us. They suck in the food dept. Nothing better than Walmart prices, the produce is spoiled when bought or goes quickly in the fridge—unacceptable. I go mostly for BJs coupons. They don’t even have Hormel Black Label bacon that’s not the maple type SIGH

      2. Wish they had these products in Massachusetts. They have some but not all 🙁

    1. Has anyone seen the almond flour in Ontario? Thanks.

      1. Wal-Mart ? Oregon Natural Market

      2. I found it at Costco on Wellington just off the 401.

      3. Yes they have it. I buy mine at the oshawa ontario location

      4. Bulk barn has the flour as almond meal

      5. bulk barn, costco london, both location

      6. Yes, I’ve seen them in Burlington, Hamilton and the Ancaster stores so most likely in all.

      7. They have the almond flour in the Barrie Costco.

      8. Almond flour is available at Ottawa area Costcos. So most probably it can be found elsewhere in Ontario.

      9. Freshco has it in the “gluten free/organics” section $17.98 bag.

      10. Stoney Creek Costco (Winona) has almond flour

      11. Yes. Best price. Richmond Hill

      12. Almond flour is found at my Costco in Hamilton, Ontario as well as a lot of other products shown. I do wish they would bring back the frozen cauliflower though, such an integral part of Keto.

      13. I have bought Kirkland Almond Flour at Costco in Ontario (Burlington and Guelph).

      14. You can purchase at any Bulk Barn.

  1. Thank you, I have been needing a list, and I have ordered 3 cookbooks but have not received them its been for weeks now, this is a great list, thanks again.

    1. I don’t sell the cookbooks, but I am glad that you enjoy my free resources here!


  2. This was interesting

  3. Pumpkin seeds and pistachio? On keto?

    1. Yes, absolutely! The pistachios are a little higher in net carbs than some other nuts, but they are not inflammatory like peanuts.

    2. pumpkin seeds are great for healing the gut, like in leaky gut. Plus sprouted releases more nutrients that are blocked by phytic acid in non-sprouted seeds.

  4. Love Costco. Thanks for the list. Another thing I love is their salmon patties. No added fillers just salmon.

    1. I haven’t tried those, but I love their fresh Salmon fillets 🙂

      1. The salmon patties are wonderful and great to keep a tube of them in the freezer for a quick meal! Pan broil each side, put a pat of butter on top to melt and sprinkle with a bit of dill, squeeze a bit of lemon over the top… YUM!

  5. And how much did all of this cost? $500+? Too expensive for me.

    1. This isn’t something you would be expected to buy all at once. Just a guide on what you CAN buy from there 🙂

  6. Are these foods Gluten free also?

    1. Yes, Keto foods are Gluten-Free (but not all Gluten-Free foods are Keto).

  7. Great list, but be aware that that brand of Apple Cider Vinegar will mold if you don’t use it quickly enough. Also, the Kerry Gold butter is cheaper at Winco, if you’re lucky enough to have one near you. Sam’s Club also has a lot of good keto choices.

    1. Cheryl, I found out that there os a Sam’s Club still open in the town over from me so I may go do a similar list and video of that one over there. 🙂

      1. Please do a Sam’s Club list! I have a membership and would love to know what I should consider buying that is Keto-friendly. Thanks for this list.

        1. 100% going to do one now, based on the support from all of you all. I love you guys!

          1. would love a list from Sam”s Club… if you do make one can you email it to me please..

          2. Yes please do a Sam’s
            I have both. As this was such a big help!!

      2. Please let me know if you do one for Sam’s Club, I would really be interested it that as I mostly shop at Sam’s and I am brand new to Keto.

        Thank you for the list at Costco!

      3. I would also like a Sam’s Club list.

        1. Yes, please do one for Sam’s. That would be so helpful.

  8. Do you deliver to the UK

    1. Do you deliver to africa

  9. They also have canned organic unsweetened Thai coconut milk. I use it as a base for my keto shakes. It is thicker than the stuff you buy in a carton so makes my shakes nice and creamy thick.

    1. Do you have a recipe for your KETO shakes?

  10. You rock! Thanks! My bf is 2 hours away. He has costco. I have sams. I’ve thought of doing my shopping at the costco and putting things in an ice chest for the drive. Looking forward to the same list!

  11. Yes a Sam’s club list please!

  12. Would you be able to do a list for BJ’s?

  13. How are berries allowed on keto? They are full of fructose… Another form of sugar/carbs.

    1. Strawberries and Blueberries are allowed in small quantities, as their forms of sugar are less effective on blood sugar.

  14. This is very helpful. Thank you! As you get new additions, would you be so kind as to continually update your list (with a date when you last updated. Edition 8/22/18 for example?) That would be SUPER helpful. Thanks again. I know this wasn’t an easy task.

  15. Eggs, Kirkland Bacon, frozen Organic Riced Cauliflour can be bought there too!

    1. Yes! The riced cauliflower is a better price per ounce at Costco than any other stores in my area.

    2. There are a lot of items not available at the Calgary, Alberta Costco’s. Any ideas on how to get Kerry gold butter and a bigger variety in Calgary?

  16. Could you do Sam’s club next? Wegmans. Weis. Walmart….

    1. Sam’s Club and Wal Mart are definitely on my upcoming checklist 🙂

      1. Thank you sooo much! This is super helpful. I’m down 38 lbs. and you’ve broadened my menu a lot!

  17. I would love a Sam’s club list. The closest Costco is almost 2 hours away and Sam’s is right around the corner.

  18. I always buy the cauliflower rice at Costco, I think it belongs to keto. I am in a Low Carb diet and I am so happy to find at Costco a lot of things that I can eat .

  19. I was surprised to not see kale on you Costco list. I’ve just started on a Keto diet and that was the first item I picked up when I went to Costco Friday to stock up.

  20. I’m relatively new to Keto, so maybe I have a misconception. I thought peanut butter was a great Keto snack due to fat, protein, and low net carb content. I was surprised not to see the Kirkland peanut butter listed. Should I be staying away from peanut butter?

    1. Peanut Butter is low-carb and High-Fat, but peanuts cause inflammation, which makes it harder to lose weight. You are better off going for some Almond Butter as an alternative. The peanuts won’t kick you out of ketosis though if you don’t eat to much of them, but the inflammation is not good overall. It’s up to you though on how you personally want to eat, there’s not JUST one way to eat Keto.

  21. Costco sells pork belly, both sliced and whole. Fabulous meat!

    1. What else do you use pork belky for besides bacon?

      1. I use pork belly for keto pork fried rice.

  22. I would love a keto list from Publix or Winn Dixie , Walmart please

  23. Thanks! This is fantastic!! Is there a way to easily print it?

  24. Costco also has cauliflower rice 2lb. bag

  25. Our local Costco in Syracuse carries Nuttzo 7 seed butter. I thought I wouldn’t love it because I love peanut butter, but this is way better. It’s not smooth like PB, it has a crazy good texture (I’m a texture-girl).

  26. I understand the need to post advertisements, but why put them IN the printable lists? HARD PASS

    1. When you use the print option, is it not removing them? we recently changed the print option a few weeks ago to this newer one because this one IS supposed to remove the advertisements.

  27. Costco also has moon cheese and pork rinds.

    I’ve heard they have the cheese tortillas but have not been able to find them. Has anyone seen them there? Might be regional?

    1. Our Costco doesn’t have the Moon Cheese or Pork Rinds, and have also yet to see the Folios wraps.

  28. Thank you for the list, so thoughtful of you, sure helps a lot. Your a great help!

  29. Costco fresh pork bellies are excellent! Whole or sliced, tastier and cheaper than bacon

  30. Folios cheese wraps for. Perfect for tacos and taste wonderful!

  31. It’s too bad you have to pay for a card to shop there!I’m a a senior on low income and have talked to many other people also lower income and not seniors but WE are shut out because of our income status,we would love to shop their!not everything is cheaper than other large stores,but there are things I (we)would love to come and shop..Thanks for the opportunity to vent!Sincerely Heidi

    1. If you know someone that has a membership you can ask them to purchase a gift card, you can go in and shop if you have a gift card without buying the membership

  32. What about Costco Kirkland Coconut Oil?

  33. Where in Az is this Costco, thankyou

    1. Hi Dawn, this is the one in Gilbert at the San Tan Village area.

  34. Do you have a link for Sam’s video that you did? I read where you had already videotaped for Sam’s.
    Much appreciated if you would,
    Vicki in Txs!

  35. what about Costcos frozen veggies?

  36. New to Keto, can you tell why it’s good to use the kerygold butter vs the Kirkland butter?
