Favorite Trader Joe’s Items

Favorite Trader Joe’s Items

Hello again! I have kept a saved instagram story highlight of my favorite Trader Joe’s items but similar to Costco, I figured it would be easier to keep this on the blog for your reference. 

I used to shop almost exclusively at TJ’s, around 95-98% of my groceries were from there, because they have a great price point and awesome products. When we lived in NC it was super close to me, but now it’s harder for me to get to at a time where it isn’t swamped with people.

Here are my tried and true Trader Joe’s favorites:

Fridge

  • Perfect Bars
  • Shaved brussel sprouts
  • Persian mini cucumbers for the daily green along with organic celery hearts, cilantro, parsley
  • Organic Free Range Chicken Breast Tenders
  • Healthy 9 chopped veggie mix in the prepared items section
  • Cruciferous Crunch salad mix – kale, brussels, broccoli, cabbage 
  • Cheese slices sliced sharp cheddar
