Trader Joe’s is probably one of my favorite places to shop, not one of my favorite grocery stores to shop at, but my favorite store in general. Being the foodie I am, I’d much rather food shop than shop for clothes. I don’t live near a Trader Joe’s, so when I am able to go I like to stock up on my favorites. Trader Joe’s is awesome because you can get great quality foods for low prices. The service is great, and they’ll always help you in any way they can. If you’ve never been to a Trader Joe’s you definitely should find one, and go! When you are able to go, make sure to try out some of my favorite products, I’m sure you won’t regret it!
1. CURRY SIMMER SAUCE
This sauce is incredible, it’s kind of like my ketchup, I put it on just about everything! I love putting it over some freshly steamed potatoes, or in a tortilla with some sprouts and avocado. It’s so versatile and can really add some flavor to any type of dish.
2. CORN AND CHILE SALSA
This salsa will probably change your life, for the better of course. It’s both sweet and savory and a perfect salsa to top off any meal. I love using it in a burrito bowl, or on top of a salad.
3. 21 SEASONING SALUTE
Trader Joe’s has a large variety of spices, and this one stands out. It’s a combination of, you guessed it.. 21 different seasonings. It has sort of an Italian seasoning taste, and is great to season tofu, tempeh, salads, or dressings.
4. COCONUT OIL SPRAY
I absolutely love using this coconut oil spray to protect all my pots and pans from food sticking to them while I’m cooking. Coconut oil has a high smoke point, so I even use it to spray the grill before I’m about to grill up some veggies!
5. TO THE POWER OF SEVEN ORGANIC JUICE
Trader Joe’s has some awesome juice blends, and they are all made with great quality ingredients. I recently tried the To The Power Of Seven Organic Juice and fell in love! It’s a combination of pomegranate, cherry, mullberry, red grape, purple carrot, cranberry, and blueberry. The flavors a light and refreshing, and it’s filled with powerful anti-oxidants.
6. GREEN PLANT JUICE BLEND
This is another one of my favorite juices at Trader Joe’s, it’s taste a lot like the Naked juices, but is way cheaper and has lots more nutrients. I’ve gotten many skeptics to fall in love with the sweet flavors of this juice. The color is somewhat scary, but the flavor is incredible you wouldn’t even know it was green.
7. BLACK MISSION FIGS
Trader Joe’s has a huge variety of dried fruits, nuts, and seeds all for great prices. I absolutely love their dried figs. They are so juicy and sweet, the perfect snack!
8. ORGANIC POPPING CORN
A big bag of ORGANIC popping corn is only about $2.00, which is insanely cheap. I love Trader Joe’s huge varieties of organic products, and I really love how inexpensive they are. I usually try to buy organic corn products, so shopping at Trader Joe’s makes that super easy and affordable.
9. KETTLE POPPED POPCORN CHIPS (AKA HEAVEN IN CHIP FORM)
This is probably one of my favorite snack foods of all time. Not only are they delicious, but they are whole grain and have chia and flax seeds. These are the perfect combination of sweet and salt, and are the best chips in the entire world, definitely a must-try!
10. QUINOA AND BLACK BEAN INFUSED TORTILLA CHIPS
Another awesome snack that’s both delicious and filled with healthiness. I love how most all of Trader Joe’s chips are made with good quality ingredients so you can feel good about munching on some chips. I love the flavor of these tortilla chips, they really go great with any type of salsa of Mexican dish.
11. ORGANIC STRAWBERRY & SUPER FRUIT JAM
These two fruit spreads are so delicious and a great spread on some toast or crackers. I also love these jams because they have no added sugar, like most jams do. They are just pure organic fruit! Yummm!
12. ORGANIC LOW SODIUM VEGETABLE BROTH
I absolutely love using vegetable broth in stir-fries, sauces, and rice it’s just an easy way to add flavor to different dishes. This vegetable broth is so flavorful and packed with some awesome organic vegetables.
13. FROZEN ORGANIC WHOLE GREEN FIGS
Trader Joe’s is the only place I’ve found that sells frozen figs, and I’m so glad they do. Frozen figs are so delicious in smoothies, they are super sweet. I also love cutting them up and adding some almond milk and nuts and eating it like a frozen cereal.
14. SOY CREAMY CHERRY CHOCOLATE CHIP
I saved the best for last with this one. This dairy-free ice cream is actually mind blowing, so watch out if you try this product! I could eat this everyday, it’s sweet, creamy, and super inexpensive.
