I have a mild obsession with Trader Joes. It is one of my favorite places to go.  Every week I go there to stock up on the groceries I need. There are hundreds of reasons why I love it, but the top 5 are:

  1. The people are incredibly nice. True story: I was having a rough day and the cashier could tell. I explained what was going on and she said “excuse me for a second” and walked away. When she came back she had a large bouquet of flowers and said “I really hope this brightens the rest of your day.”
  2. It’s small so I can go in and have all of my groceries picked up and check out in 30 minutes or less.
  3. I try new samples every time I go in and everything is delicious!
  4. Everything is cost effective! It works with our budget.
  5. All of the organic and natural foods and ingredients fit in with my lean, clean and green lifestyle.

I love trying new things, but there are several staples I always have in my kitchen.

So, what are some of my favorites/ must have items?

  1. Organic srirarcha and roasted garlic BBQ sauce– This stuff is great on everything, but it really spices up grilled chicken.
  2. Gluten free cranberry and maple granola– I use this to top smoothie bowls and yogurt parfaits.
  3. Dark chocolate cocoa nibs– I love these to mix in smoothies or for a late night sweet cravings.
  4. Nonfat plain Greek yogurt– Great in the mornings for breakfast or morning snack.
  5. Almond beverage– both regular and vanilla unsweetened (great for smoothies and cereal)
  6. Fruit bars– great for snacks and made of only 2 ingredients
  7. Creamy unsalted peanut butter– it speaks for itself. I would marry peanut butter if I could.
  8. Organic unsweetened flake coconut– I top everything with this!

What do you love about Trader Joes and what are some must haves for you?

    Love this! You’re so right, they’re so friendly there! My must haves are the coconut flakes, cilantro jalapeño hummus, and to splurge, their coconut macaroons! So delish! Thanks for sharing your must haves!

      Yummy! My splurge is probably the cookie butter cheesecake bites. We don’t buy them too often because we eat them all in one sitting. Haha.
