You guys voted and wanted an entire post on my Trader Joe’s favorites. I think we all love Trader Joe’s, you can’t beat the prices and I love that they are always coming out with new items to try. I took pictures from a recent trip there and broke everything down into groups and then I also tried to list other favorites that I didn’t buy this grocery trip as well.
P R O D U C E
Mixed Cherry Tomatoes – great for salads
Rainbow Carrots- I love these to serve with hummus because they are so pretty.
Shaved Brussels Sprouts- I use these with Kale for salads for lunch.
Organic Apples- the kids love to snack on these
Arugula- easy simple salad tossed with olive oil, lemon juice and Parmesan cheese.
Riced Veggie Melody- great with Asian Salmon or Teryaki Chicken
Basil- use this all the time cooking
Broccolini- so random but this is the kid’s favorite veggie. I roast it with olive oil and a little Parmesan cheese
Myer Lemons- I use these for my hot lemon water every morning and also for dressings.

Meatballs- great for an easy dinner for the kids paired with a veggie
Mini Pepperoni Pizzas- we all love these, easy dinner for kids.
