WHAT I BUY AT TRADER JOE’S

I love Trader Joe’s and do 90% of my grocery shopping there. I am always interested in what people buy and love seeing grocery hauls. I feel more inspired to cook after and I find it fascinating! So I thought it would be fun to share with you what I get on my trips to Trader Joe’s.

PRODUCE

To be honest, I mostly buy produce when I go to Trader Joe’s. I love that it is affordable and the quality is top notch! Things I typically buy are carrots, celery, potatoes, baby spinach, onions, apples, pears, lemons, limes, zucchini, cherry tomatoes, and fresh herbs (if my herb garden is on the “used” side).

During the summer I am always buying cherries, corn, and asparagus. If you haven’t tried the prepackaged ready to cook corn you are seriously missing out! It is always so delicious and easy to make. Hello Mexican corn!!

DAIRY, MEAT & CHEESES

I love the variety of cheese you can find at Trader Joe’s! When I need to do a cheese board I typically spend too much time staring at all the cute wedges they have. I also really love their ground beef. I know, it sounds strange, but it is so delicious and extra lean.

On a regular grocery run I like to stock up on the blend bags they have (cheese goes really fast in my house). I love the Swiss/Gruyere blend they have. It elevates any dish you put it on…soooo good!

Trader Joe’s also has THE best gluten free products around and these egg fettuccine noodles are no exception!

So this is the other section of the store I buy a lot from. I love their lactose free whole milk and their oat beverage! I go through a carton every two weeks. I also stock up on unsalted butter, greek yogurt, eggs, and orange juice.

FROZEN GOODS

I usually get frozen fruit for smoothies, carrot spirals, hash brown patties, and croissants.

I love the cauliflower cheese pizza and the gluten free Mac & Cheese! They are the best and great for days when I don’t want to cook and am craving some comfort food.

MISCELLANEOUS

On this trip I was stocking up on some usual things, but I also have an “at-home movie night” planned that I was buying a few things for. I typically get maple syrup, chai concentrate, matcha powder, and sourdough bread.

I go through this pancake mix pretty fast, especially in the summer. It is so delicious and I love adding blueberries to mine.

I am a huge fan of the shade grown coffee and espresso ever since I went on a Safari Tour at the San Diego Zoo and learned that it is better for the environment because it grows naturally. The flavor is so amazing that I literally can’t use anything else now!

I also picked up some gluten free bread and hamburger buns to have for the week. This bread is so versatile! I can use it for sandwiches and French toast…yumm! The burger buns only come around during the summer so I like to snatch them up and freeze for when I have burgers.

I love the dark chocolate PB cups and these crisps! I don’t always buy them but again…movie night!

Well, there you have it! That is what I get on my Trader Joe’s run. Do you shop at Trader Joe’s? If so, I would love to know what you pick up! Also let me know if you like posts like these.
