tuesday ten: trader joe's favorites

..t r a d e r   j o e ' s..
there is no better place to grocery shop if you ask me.
here are some favorites.. it was hard to choose just 10 with so many things we love there!
1. my first love from trader joe's, and it still lives on today. these are tiny but dangerous!
we eat them by the handful, put them into brownies, blend them into shakes, 
pour them straight into our mouth...fight over the last few...you get the idea.
2. joe's o's...a simple, healthier version of cheerios. 
we LOVE them with blueberries {and peaches} cut up.
3. best salad dressing, hands down! 
4. the best tasting almond milk i have found. we put it in our 
green smoothies, and i eat it with cereal & oatmeal!
5. pair these two things with chicken, brown rice, sweet potatoes and carrots. win.
6. you can't go wrong with their yummy granola flavors..the chocolate 
almond is more like a dessert than a breakfast though :)
7. i didn't like any type of nuts growing up, but now i'm randomly 
obsessed with almonds..and trader's just taste the best! i snack allll day.
8. BEST snack...and these have no salt!
9. same thing as above, but covered in chocolate..these 
are dangerous//amazing//i need some now
10. best of all, a trader joe's cookbook to use all of their yummy food in recipes!
another post will have to come soon, there are just too many gems!

  10. Mmmm that granola and that curry look so good! When I move to SLC in the next few weeks I'll be about 2 blocks from Trader Joes. At least I don't have to feel as bad about binge eating their food. It's healthy!

  11. It breaks my heart that there isn't a Trader Joes here. The French don't know what they're missing!

  12. Stumbled upon your post. Thanks for the recommendations. Is the Thai Yellow curry sauce spicy or mild?

  13. I drive an hour to get to Trader Joe's in Madison. I LOVE IT I discovered it years ago in CA, my boyfriend took me there and it was love at first visit (I later dumped the boyfriend) Once a friend and I went for a shopping trip and I got sick, my appendix was rupturing but I would not stop shopping, not for a minute. Filled up my cart, drove an hour home and off to the hospital. I am officially there most loyal customer.
