Costco Healthy Grocery Haul

Here's my Costco Canada  grocery haul this week!  I picked up a few basics (fruit, veg, Turkey, bread), a few treats for the kiddos (Chicago Mix, croissants) and found a few new low-point treats for me to try.

I could have gone for the gradual self tan lotion that Jergens is so famous for, but no, I went straight for the big guns. If you're gonna do something, you have to be all in.
