Did you know there were so many healthy foods at Sam’s Club?! A few weeks ago, we bought a Groupon for a Sam’s Club membership.
For $45. We got the Sam’s Plus membership (normally $100), a $20 gift card, and coupons for a free rotisserie chicken.
Free salsa (which is my favorite salsa EVER), and a free 8-ct. cupcakes (which we never redeemed, hooray!).
As much as I love Harris Teeter, our local grocery store, I have really been trying to save money on groceries lately!
This is going to be even more challenging without using potatoes, pasta, and rice as filler, since we try to mostly stay low-carb.
So far, we have found some really good healthy choices at Sam’s Club, and while we end up eating the same things more often.
We have saved money and time. Because a lot of what we buy from Sam’s is really easy to heat up or throw together! Did you know you can even order your healthy foods at Sam’s Club online and pick them up in the store? Awesome!
13 Healthy Foods at Sam’s Club
We have saved money and time, because a lot of what we buy from Sam’s is really easy to heat up or throw together! Did you know you can even order your healthy foods at Sam’s Club online and pick them up in the store? Awesome!
Hormel Black Label Fully Cooked Bacon
(72 ct.)–$8.48–I love this bacon! It only takes about 15 seconds to cook in the microwave, and 4 slices equal 70 calories. Gone are the days of cooking a whole package of bacon and eating the whole thing.
Since a 12-pack of fully-cooked bacon is around $5 at Wal-Mart, this is probably my favorite value item.
Italian Rose 48oz Salsa
$9.98–This is kind of a splurge, but it’s the best salsa in the world to me. I can’t even make it this good. I put it on everything and it’s usually gone within a week.
Gourmet Vegetable Platter
4 lbs–$9.97–Give me all the veggies, please! Already sliced and ready to go. I need my healthy to be as convenient as possible.
Casa Di Bertacchi Turkey Meatballs
(64 oz.)–$9.98–We eat these a lot because they are so good and so easy to heat up!
Green Giant Antioxidant Blend Steam-in-a-Bag Vegetables
(7 oz. pks., 5 ct.)–$5.26–I am a nut for the bags of steam fresh veggies you just throw in the microwave. This is one of my favorites!
Oscar Mayer Deli Shaved Smoked Ham
2 lbs–$5.98–The turkey is only $1 more. Gotta have lunch meat on hand for lunch sandwiches and salads!
5 lbs–$5.98–I may or may not have already eaten like 4 of these since yesterday.
16 Oz Organic Baby Spinach
$4.98–This is a big box of spinach, and it will be gone before the week is over.
Tyson Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts, 6 Lbs
$12.46–I like these because the fat is already trimmed off of them and they’re individually frozen so they don’t stick together. We use these probably 3-4 times a week!
Mt. Olive Kosher Dill Pickles, 1 Gallon
$4.57–Pickles go with everything. The end.
Butterball Turkey Burgers – Original Seasoned – 12 Ct.
4 lbs.–$12.47–We eat a lot of turkey meat now; Joey is even starting to really like it. These patties are easy to cook or formulate into mini meat loaves, and we don’t have to use more than we need.
Rotel Diced Tomatoes & Green Chilies – 10 Oz. – 8 Ct.
$6.48–This is about the price I pay for the generic brand normally, and we tend to go through cans quickly in our house!
$4.98–They also have boneless skinless chicken breast for $1.98/lb, but that’s what I pay for it fresh at Harris Teeter. I guess where I buy just depends on where I am for that one, but Sam’s Club beats Harris Teeter by about $2 on their rotisserie chicken!
We spent less than $100 this past weekend buying groceries at Sam’s Club, didn’t buy any starches or carbs. And we have enough groceries to last almost 2 weeks. I am very excited about being able to both save money and eat healthier. And the best part? No coupons or sales hunting!
Do you shop at any “big box” stores? What are your favorite things to buy?

healthy foods to eat at various fast food and sit-down restaurants. Today I will be featuring Wendy’s, the hamburger fast food chain. Wendy’s is actually where I had my first job, and where I started dating my first boyfriend, who is now my husband!
As much as we try to make healthy foods at home instead of eating out, sometimes it’s unavoidable. Fortunately, Wendy’s has a lot of healthy options. The great thing about Wendy’s, though, is that you can eat healthy while staying on the Value Menu.
Wendy’s is also a great place to find healthy gluten-free options, and it’s pretty much the winner as far as healthy and low-calorie foods with variety and value.
Check it out! healthy foods to eat at various fast food and sit-down restaurants. Today I will be featuring Taco Bell, everyone’s favorite place to eat their “Fourth Meal”. Eating at Taco Bell can be challenging because they have so many things covered with cheese and/or fried, but it is possible to get out of there eating something with at least some nutritional value, or at least lower in calories. Check it out! healthy foods to eat at various fast food and sit-down restaurants.
Today I will be featuring Hardee’s/Carl’s Jr., a notoriously unhealthy fast food restaurant known for its piled-to-the-sky Thickburgers and 2000 calorie combos. Did you know there’s a whole other side of Hardee’s?
. They actually have some of the tastier not-as-bad-for-you restaurant options. Another salad? No thank you! Sometimes you just want a burger! healthy foods to eat at various fast food and sit-down restaurants. $4.98–They also have boneless skinless chicken breast for $1.98/lb, but that’s what I pay for it fresh at Harris Teeter.

Today I will be featuring McDonald’s, the most popular (for better or worse) fast food restaurant there is! McDonald’s is famous for having unhealthy choices, and they’re often bait for being attacked for the fillers and preservatives they put in their foods to keep costs down.
But they are also one of the more accommodating restaurants when it comes to finding a healthier option. Did you know they even have a section on their website of foods under 400 calories? They also have an excellent meal builder, and you can even sort for foods by calories, total fat, sodium content, protein, and more!
