It is no secret that I absolutely LOVE the grocery store. Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s are two of my favorite places to spend some money!!! Here are a few of my latest finds…
This cereal is from Whole Foods. You can use it as a warm cereal, in a smoothie or even as a base for oatmeal cookies.
La Granja is a Trader Joe’s favorite.
I discovered the Zebra bottle last summer, and the tempanillo is smooth and fantastic. For around $5 each, these red wines taste way above their price!
Whole Foods Go Raw Cookies…lemon and ginger are my favorite!
Dark chocolate is a must have in this house. Trader Joe’s has some fantastic vegan options.
These mushrooms are the best I’ve ever had. They are great on the grill or in the oven.
This Black Bean Soup from Trader Joe’s is one of the best canned soups out there.
This Barbara’s cereal (known for their puffins) tastes like the childhood favorite Life.
I like it mixed with other cereals (ie puffed millet) with fruit and almond milk.
Another Trader Joe’s wine to make the list is this meritage that just arrived in stores this spring.
Which I discovered while I was stocking up on my new summer favorite, TJ’s Blanc de Blanc. You HAVE to try this refreshing sparkling wine.
Picky Bars can be ordered online. I read about them in a magazine which recommended these natural bars for post-exercise recovery.
I am a huge fan of this unsweetened ice tea. It is perfect for breakfast or a sunny day outside.
This Almond Smooth came highly recommended (I am yet to try it), but I decided to go with the chocolate flavor. I can’t wait to have my first glass!
I’m sure you have seen this LWYD favorite all over my blog. I always keep a box in the freezer for when I need a quick and healthy breakfast. I add in a banana, chia seeds, and almond milk for my typical pre-race meal.
You may have seen these in your grocery store freezer, but they are about $1 cheaper at Trader Joe’s. They are jam packed with veggies, not fillers. My favorite way to eat them is broiled or grilled, but the microwave will work too if you are short on time.
Since we’re talking about the freezer, I always keep one of these available for a quick and tasty appetizer. I promise you will love it and so will your guests!
And what is there to eat with this cheesy dip??? Either of these will do!
This new find is decadent! Spread it all over these Soda Bread Scones.
A flattened banana…random right??? My mom and I picked these up in the check out line. I haven’t opened it yet.
Mom…how does it taste?
I eat this 8 veggie salad over greens, with feta, or as a stirfry. Even the BOY likes it!!!
And last, but certainly not least, the BOY’s ultimate favorite. They never last the weekend!
This is only a fraction of our favorites, but should be a good start. If you are looking for more inspiration, pick up one of these books that I randomly found at Barnes & Noble today.
What is your favorite shopping find?
Has anyone tried the Trader Joe’s cookbooks?
