On a trip to Costco…

I’ve been asked by several people in my class to list some of the things I buy at Costco and their points values, since I get most of my food from there. I buy the following on a pretty regular basis.

  • Kirkland Signature Roast Beef (canned)—only 4 points for the entire can
  • Kirkland Signature Chicken (canned)—six points for the entire can
  • Montana Wheat Bread—all the varieties that Costco carries are 1 point a slice and they are nice, big slices. I prefer the Oat and Honey variety.
  • Orville Redenbacher Smart Pop 94% fat-free popcorn—only 2 points for an entire popped bag
  • Laughing Cow Lite Cheese Wedges—1 point for a wedge
  • Jarlsberger Lite Swiss Cheese slices—1 point a slice
  • Foster Farms Deli Style Smoked Turkey and Roasted Turkey slices—1 point a slice and they’re nice, big slices
  • Healthy Choice Fudge Bars—1 point apiece
  • Skinny Cow Vanilla and Chocolate Ice Cream sandwiches—1 point apiece
  • Fiber One Oat and Chocolate Chewy Bars—2 points a bar
  • Zone Bars, Chocolate Peanut Butter and Fudge Graham—4 points a bar
  • Cliff Bars—5 points apiece
  • Morton’s Steakhouse Tri-Tip—according to packaging 1 point an ounce, love to grill this up
  • Rader Farms Mixed Berries (frozen)—1point per cup
  • Fruit Spectrum Frozen Fruit Blend—1 point per cup
  • Cheerios—2 points per cup
  • Fresh fruit and vegetables
  • Crystal Light Lemonade Drink Mix—1 point per half gallon
  • Boca Burgers—1 point per patty
  • Foster Farms Frozen Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts—according to the package, 2 points per breast
