I had already been transitioning my family over to organics before I started on this weight loss journey, but over the last year I have made a full transition, with the exception of some cheeses. I do all of our shopping through these three resources:
Natural Grocers at Vitamin Cottage
Natural Grocers is a local company, but I think they are in several states nowadays. I'm sure that any local health food store would have a similar feel and selection of products. The thing I love most is that they only carry organic produce. I don't have to look at the little tags to know if something is conventional or organic, like at some other stores.
I buy the bulk of my produce here, and try to just get a good variety every week, and generally go with what's on sale. This week I got zucchini, mushrooms, onions, garlic, avocados, tomato, carrots, peaches, and bananas. I often get apples there too, but Costco had organic gala apples so I got them there this week. In the summer I try to frequent our local farmer's market.
Here's a list of other products that I buy at Natural Grocers:
Applegate Farms roasted turkey, herb turkey, pepperoni, salami, and uncured hot dogs.
Rudi's Organic wheat hot dog buns and multigrain wraps
Ezekiel 4:9 sprouted grain english muffins and pita pockets
Wild Thyme Naturals roasted red pepper hummus
Organicville salad dressings
Spectrum organic mayo and apple cider and white vinegars
Organic Valley milk, buttermilk, and sour cream
Nancy's cultured cream cheese
Roberto's Green Chile Salsa
Chocolove Dark Chocolate Bars
So Delicious coconut milk, popsicles, and ice cream sandwiches
Coconut Bliss coconut milk ice cream
Organic Prairie breakfast sausage
Farmer's Hen House organic eggs
Lundberg organic brown rice
Bob's Red Mill oats, oat flour, and whole wheat flour
Sunbutter sunflower seed spread
Oogavé agave sweetened soda
Izze soda (fruit juice and sparkling water)
Green & Black's organic dark chocolate
Enjoy Life chocolate bars, chocolate chips, cookies (for my allergic daughter)
From the bulk section I get raw, organic almonds, sunflower seeds, and occasionally walnuts or pecans. I would love to be able to purchase more items in bulk, but everything has a peanut cross-contamination statement and is therefore not safe for my daughter. I go ahead and get my almonds and sunflower seeds there since she doesn't eat them.
Over the last several years Costco has started to carry a ton of organics. It's great!

Frontier Natural Products Co-op
Frontier is an awesome company. I run co-ops for a group of family and friends that allows us to purchase at wholesale prices. From them I get our coconut oil, spices, herbs, tea, essential oils, several of our vitamins and supplements, household cleaning products, and body care products.
In addition to Frontier, I've been able to run or take part in additional co-ops to purchase local, organic grass-fed beef from a farm here in Colorado, Fox Fire Farms. We've gotten eggs from them (so yummy), and chicken. I ran out of chicken though, so I now get Coleman organic from Costco until we do another co-op. I get my agave nectar from a co-op as well.
And the one thing I have to go to a regular old grocery store for: lentils. Natural Grocers only has them in bulk, and I haven't seen them at Costco.
I'll come back and add other things that I think of, or new products that we try and like. I didn't include some of the items that I buy for my husband and kids but I don't eat, like Annie's Mac & Cheese.
