Ok, I admit it, I have a slight  serious love affair with Trader Joes. It is the best option to help keep me healthy and fiscally responsible (really, you can’t beat the price.) Also, some people give the produce a bad rap, but from personal experience I am a fan!

Here are my “must have” trader Joe’s items.
Arugula (I love the flavor and texture. It makes a salad so much more interesting.)
Persian Cucumbers
Bag of Onions
Baby Heirloom Tomatoes
Sliced Crimini Mushrooms
Organic Sugar Plum Tomatoes
Long stem baby broccoli
Haricot Vert (bagged string beans)
Balsamic Glaze (do it…so good!)
Organic Baby Carrots
Olive Oil (cheapest gig in town and still delish.)
Cocunut Oil Spray
White Meat chicken Salad
Trader Joe’s Parmesan, Romano & Asiago Cheese – Freshly Shaved
Trader Giotto’s Fresh Bruschetta Sauce
Just Sauce Turkey Bolognese (frozen, seriously amazing.)
Clemintines (great snack and helps with sugar cravings.)
Cantaloupe (pre-cut)
Quinoa and Brown Rice pasta (though this is a “treat” and must be eaten in moderation or can be dangerous)
Organic Brown Eggs
Hard-Cooked Peeled Eggs (easy for on the go when you don’t have time to hard boil yourself.)
100% Liquid Egg Whites
Almond Milk
