Today I’m giving my readers a truly awesome resource to celebrate The Healing Kitchen making it into Costco stores around the country! This is an awesome feat for any Paleo cookbook, but I’m especially proud that it so closely aligns with the goals we laid out when we put together this cookbook.
We wanted this book to be the most accessible, approachable and budget-conscious approach to the Autoimmune Protocol ever presented. To that end, Alaena Haber and I worked hard to ensure every one of the 175+ recipes in The Healing Kitchen used ingredients you could easily and affordably find at big, well-known grocery stores like Costco. Our idea was to make sure you could heal your body while preparing quick and easy recipes that didn’t sacrifice flavor OR strain your wallet.
I absolutely love the idea of towers of The Healing Kitchen in the Costco book stacks because it I know how many more people it now has the potential to help heal!
In case you aren’t familiar with Costco, it’s a grocery store based on a club model that makes buying in bulk incredibly affordable. Members pay a yearly fee of about $50 and have access to goods at a much lower price point than would normally be possible at a smaller grocery store. I’ve personally been a Costco Member for about 16 years (Costco Canada until I moved to America in 2005, and a Costco USA member since then). Beyond the fact that I’m addicted to Kirkland brand toilet paper, paper towel, and baby wipes (yes even though my girls are now 9 and 6!), I save the value of my membership or more with every single shopping trip.
I’ve also been positively thrilled to see Costco stocking its shelves with tons of Paleo-friendly staples like grass-fed meat (location-specific) and wild-caught seafood, organic fruits and vegetables, and healthy oils like olive, avocado and coconut at a very reasonable price. You can find a local Costco near you using this link!
I often get questions from busy families who are daunted by the prospect of shifting to a diet that emphasizes high-quality meat and produce. One of my top tips for making this transition a seamless (and much more affordable!) one is to consider finding a way to buy in bulk! You will almost always save money when buying this way, and you’ll cut down on your trips to to the store. If you’re feeding a large family or even splitting a membership with roommates or friends, I can’t recommend Costco highly enough!!
To celebrate The Healing Kitchen in Costco, I’m giving my readers a brand-new FREE resource: The Healing Kitchen Costco Guide. This free downloadable guide will help you stock your pantry with the AIP-friendly ingredients you’ll find in the cookbook. You’ll also find awesome lists like easy ingredient swaps, budget-friendly ingredients and time-saving superstars. Plus, I’ll give you a breakdown of my favorite Costco buys with brand names, to make shopping a breeze.
This download is fully printable, or you can tote it along in your purse or on your phone while you peruse the aisles at Costco. You’ll be able to download the PDF, head to the store, grab a copy of The Healing Kitchen and get cooking in no time!
Speaking of which: if you’ve already purchased The Healing Kitchen from a different retailer, I am so incredibly thankful for your support! However, it’s important for us to show Costco that Paleo books from my publisher, Victory Belt Publishing Inc., are wanted and even needed in their stores. If you like the idea of Paleo cookbooks making it into the mass market—where they might catch the eye of an everyday family—won’t you consider picking up another copy (or any another Victory Belt book) to show your support? The Healing Kitchen makes an amazing gift, and the recipes will please even the pickiest, non-AIP members of your family.
I’m so very thankful for your support, which made this super cool achievement possible. Don’t forget to download your The Healing Kitchen Costco Guide today!
