Why Trader Joe’s is THE Best

I usually make my weekly Trader Joe’s haul and I’ve found some awesome products that we love. They’re flavorful, easy, international, and cheaper than traditional grocery stores and I play a little “Guess how much?” game with friends when I unload because it’s ALWAYS cheaper than what everyone guesses. 

                                                                 Must Try Products

  • Flowers-I have fresh flowers in my kitchen every week and they make it a lot more affordable to keep the habit. I can get a beautiful bouquet for $5.99.
  • Produce– All beautiful and reasonably priced. They also have bagged riced cauliflower and broccoli, precut butternut squash, and a great selection of fresh fruits and veggies.
  • Tamari Flavored Mini Rice Crackers- salty, crunchy, and asian inspired. The serving size is 37 crackers and believe me, it’s hard to even stop there.
  • Herb and Olive Oil Popcorn– flavored with olive oil, dill, and other spices, this popcorn is a satisfying salty snack.
  • Peach Mango Salsa- The perfect combination of sweet, spicy, and smoky elevates your mexican meals.
  • Creamy Almond Butter (no salt)– This is the creamiest version I’ve tried and I like to add my own salt to control it.
  • Low Fat Tuscan style Marinara– big cans for just over a dollar and it’s great! I mean it’s not Rao’s, but it’s not $9 a jar either.
  • Brown rice or red lentil pastas– A great way to get a healthier version of pasta without as much guilt
  • Dried Mango– pretty much vegan jerky
  • Hummus– there’s several varieties but my favorite is the original
  • Organic tofu– firm or extra firm
  • 3 Grain Organic tempeh– under $2 for a package and it makes the best “sausage” crumbles
  • Animal crackers– a huge tub that make you feel 4 years old again
  • 72% Dark Chocolate packs– perfect after dinner treat
  • Simply Nutty Bars– nuts, dark chocolate, and sea salt

Frozen section

  • fruit and veggies-mango, raspberries, peas, grilled cauliflower
  • Brown rice – just microwave a bag and it serves two people
  • Organic quinoa-did you know quinoa has a lot of protein?
  • Shrimp or Veggie Gyoza- they’re so affordable and so delicious! Just a few minutes to pan fry then steam and it’s a quick weeknight delight.
  • Japanese style fried rice– rice with seaweed and edamame with veggies mixed in.
  • Mahi Mahi burgers– bought these last time but haven’t tried them yet!
  • Vegan Tikka Masala- when you want quick Indian without the heavy cream.

And no, this is not an ad. I’m not famous.
