I go to publix several times a week, maybe more than 3-4 times. It's very frustrating and time consuming when I find I'm out of nuts or whatnot. Do you guys buy in bulk? If so, where and what do you usually get?

Not having nuts must be a bummer lol....

Trader Joe's is my first food market of choice. BJ's (wholesale club) on occasion for bottled water and frozen blueberries.

Oh yea, ground meat from US Wellness.

Trader Joe's and also a local Co-Op. I go probably 5x a week, but the Co-Op is a block away from CrossFit, so it's not bad.

Costco sells big sacks of nuts(walnuts,pecans,almonds) 4lbs. for ~$12. 5 lb bags of broccoli, 10 lb bags of frozen skinless chicken breasts. I get the majority of my food there.

Sadly I have to go to many different places. Wild Oats for Omega 3 eggs, raw cheese and sometimes buffalo. Trader Joe's for the canned salmon, grassfed beef, free range chicken, fish, etc. plus the nuts and seeds, nut butters, almond flour. A local store for raw milk and kimchee.

Oh and usually just once a week. I buy some fresh and some frozen fruit/veg.

I do the same as Yael...many different places. Wild Oats, Trader Joes and Sunflower Market (in Nevada...I am here for work for a few months). I actually live in Colorado where Vitamin Cottage has great prices. I eat about 80% organic, so I am always looking for food on sale. Also, the hubby normally does the shopping - usually twice weekly.
