If you’re looking for a convenient, gluten-free option from Costco’s frozen food section, look no further than this Lemon Chicken Piccata with Cauliflower Rice. It’s packed with 21 grams of protein in every serving and only 2 grams of sugar. We’re loving this frozen dinner’s swap of cauliflower rice for traditional pasta, too. Those on a pure keto diet may still consider this one a splurge, but for those of us simply trying to cut back on carbs, this freezer meal is a great start.

Acai bowls remain a highly popular heart-healthy food trend that is now available right in your Costco freezer. Many acai bowl products often just contain the acai fruit puree and require you to BYO toppings to complete your meal. We love that these include fruit and granola with each serving, making it the perfect, healthy grab-and-go breakfast for your busy morning.

Who doesn’t love a good bowl of zoodles? If these organic zucchini spirals are not already a staple in your freezer, they need to be. This 3-pound bag is divided into several smaller portioned freezer packs so you can easily whip up your favorite low-carb zucchini noodle recipe any night of the week.

Use these wraps made with eggs and cauliflower in place of tortillas, buns, taco shells and crepes. With only 30 calories and zero carbs, they’re a great keto- and paleo-friendly option that is also gluten- and dairy-free. Try them out with one of these great sandwich wrap recipes.

Salmon is always a great healthy option thanks to its omega-3 content. When paired with spinach, broccoli, edamame and chia seed in the form of poppable bites, you get a tasty superfood snack or meal in minutes. With just 110 calories per six salmon bites, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a more flavorful and nutritious option in Costco’s freezer.

This one may sound unhealthy, but these muffins are loaded with veggies. In fact, zucchini and carrots are their first ingredients. While each muffin does contain 10 grams of sugar, we like to think that they’re at least a small step up from your classic jumbo bakery muffin. Everyone is allowed to indulge a little bit, right?

Southwest Mango Quinoa Blend

If you’re looking to ramp up your protein uptake, look no further than this Southwest Mango Quinoa Blend. While quinoa isn’t low-carb, it’s a complex carbohydrate that will fuel your body for the long haul with whole grains. Blended with mango, black beans, roasted corn and cilantro, we bet this quinoa would taste great alongside a number of our favorite Southwest or Tex-Mex recipes.

Now that your cart is full of healthy meals and snack options, learn how you can maximize your savings with these helpful Costco shopping tips.
