Trip to Trader Joe’s

My Trader Joe’s Must Haves :)


Trader Joe’s is one of my favorite stores to go to. It is full of fun, tasty good for you products that are so different from what you find in a regular supermarket.  I’m always on the hunt to try out something new, but there a bunch of must haves for my family that I pick up every time I go.



I love to try out different blends of coffee and Trader Joe’s has a really nice selection.  My cutie of a Colombian husband picked this out, so we headed off to their awesome grinder to get the beans ready for some brewing.

There are so many different types of cheese to choose from, but my two favorites are Gruyère and Brie. If you want to make a pretty cheeseboard for the holidays, definitely go check out their cheese selection.

All you need is this and a crunchy french baguette and all will be right in the world. 😉

We are huge fans of indian food and this frozen meal is so good that my kids will come home from school and choose it over sweets anytime. I am always sure to buy a bunch to store in my freezer.

My daughter will heat this up and eat it for a meal. It’s more of a tasty, quick and easy side dish for me to use on a busy night.

These are my go to burgers when I am on a strict diet. They are low in calories and so good with roasted veggies or even on a toasted bun with avocado, lettuce and tomato.

Big favorite of mine. I usually just cut them in half and toast them up. Perfect in the morning with a little butter and jelly or even for your eggs Benedict.  A bag of these never last long in my house.

Chips & Crackers:

Olive oil:

They really have great prices when it comes to olive oil and this is my favorite to use for salad dressing and sautéing vegetables.

You just can’t go wrong with chocolate and nuts.

I love french macarons and what’s even better is that they come out with different flavors for each season. I can’t wait to try the four spice caramel :)

We left Trader Joe’s with a big cart full, so hopefully I’ll have some new favorites for you real soon.
