The cilantro and chive dip.  It is amazing on veggies (especially carrot sticks).  Or with their multi colored flaxseed & veggie tortilla chips.  I do not share this!!

I’m obsessed with Trader Giotto’s Ricotta & Spinach ravioli – SOOO good (frozen foods section – comes in a bag).  Great for a quick easy dinner when paired with a salad.  Their berry sparkling water.  Frozen naan bread.  Store brand lentil soup / vegetarian corn dogs / Greek yogurt.  Awesome produce (love the little multicolored mini heirloom tomatoes).

LOVE Trader Joe’s.  $70 will get you a whole cart filled with delicious tasty groceries.  So much cheaper than what we spend at a regular grocery store.

I’ve never had anything bad from TJ’s, but my favorites are:

  • Balela (chickpea black bean salad)
  • Tarte D’Alsace flatbread pizza – particularly the ham, carmelized onions & Gruyere cheese one
  • COOKIE BUTTER! – original or crunchy
  • Cookie Butter ice cream is pretty amazing as well
  • Dried chile spiced mango
  • Cilantro and jalapeno hummus
  • Even their plain ground turkey is amazing
  • Bavarian bratwurst

Masala veggie burgers (soooo good on a roll with some mango chutney) and candy. Also candy. Did I mention candy? Chocolate covered caramels, peanut butter cups, etc.

the chia seed crunchy peanut butter is reasonably priced and very good!  their cereal is good as well.  They also make a knockoff of pirates booty that is better than pirates booty 🙂  their fish is usually very good as well.

I forgot to mention the pre-made salads are amazing.  I could (and sometimes do) eat the harvest salad with grilled chicken every day of the week.  I need them to sell the dressing alone.  The mexicali salad with chili lime chicken is also really nice.
