What’s in the bag? {Trader Joe’s}

Standard

This weekend, I took a fun trip to Trader Joe’s with my friend Leslie for some “staples.” Our closest TJ’s is about 35-40 minutes away so I don’t get there very often, so when I do get there, I try to stock up on some non-perishables to last me awhile.

Here’s what was in my bag(s)…

Trader Joe's bagWhat I always stock up on:

  • Unsweetened vanilla almond milk (3) 
  • Raw, creamy, unsalted almond butter (2)
  • Maple Agave Syrup Blend (2) — I love this stuff on my pancakes & two ingredient Paleo pancake!
  • Fat Free Balsamic Vinaigrette (2)
  • Country Choice Multi Grain Cereal (perfect for making protein bars)
  • Turkey Bacon (2 — I freeze one)
  • Shaved parmesan, asiago, and romano blend (I typically keep this in my freezer and it’ll last me about a month.)
  • Almond flour (Cheapest I’ve ever found!)

What I threw in my cart this time:

  • Sweet potatoes 
  • Fresh salsa mild
  • Black Bean Quinoa Chips — Yes, these are already open. Enough said.
  • Coconut milk (I want to make more of my coconut shrimp quinoa next week!)
  • Not pictured: unsalted, roasted peanuts; brussel sprouts; celery; multigrain rustic bread; raisins

Other favorites from Trader Joe’s:

  • Spinach Tortellini 
  • Whole Wheat Pizza Dough
  • Grilled asparagus (frozen)
  • Corn (frozen)
  • Reduced-guilt greek yogurt guacamole (I LOVE this stuff!)

I love Trader Joe’s quality of food…and pricing! I have yet to find nuts (especially roasted & unsalted), almond flour, almond butter, or bananas cheaper anywhere else.

Do you shop at Trader Joe’s? What are your favorite staples and must-haves?
