My Latest Trader Joe’s Obsessions

Though we’ve only had a Trader Joe’s store for the past 4 years, I can’t remember my life without it. Even though in the most horrible spot in Birmingham (seriously, who decided to put a grocery store in the middle of a shopping outlet) but I push thru because Trader Joe’s isn’t just a store, it’s an experience. Seriously, I took my husband for the first time a couple of weeks ago and now he’s hooked. We’re thinking of making this a family tradition …. Pizza Sunday, Taco Tuesday, and Trader Joe’s Thursday (because whoever decides to brave the crowds and traffic to shop TJ during the weekend … God bless you!!)

Here are my latest obsessions (FYI: this will be a recurring this on the blog because 1. Trader Joe’s is just that awesome 2. They are always coming out with new things and 3. I mean its Trader Joe’s … need I say more?)

Mango Sorbet


Hubby is a sorbet lover so we came across this and had to try it out. I wish I was joking but I went back the VERY next day and bought another one. Not that we ate thru the first one the night before but because Hubby was convinced they were going to sell out and take forever to restock. I love to crush fresh blackberries and add diced strawberries….so good and great for a low calorie sweet snack. 

Everything But the Bagel Seasoning


If you haven’t tried this seasoning on just about any and everything, you’re missing out. I’ve seen this sell for over $20 on Amazon just so international shoppers can try the goodness that is this seasoning. Not sure if I would pay that much but you can rest assure at least 2 of these are in my cabinet at all times

Hot & Spicy Pickle Chips


Great for snacking

Triple Ginger Snaps


portion these as soon as you get home so you won’t get carried away…like I did…twice!

Kung Pao Chicken

Beef & Broccoli


Another one of these quick easy dinner in less than 20 mins

Cauliflower Pizza Crust

59139-cauliflower-pizza-crust Me and hubby have Pizza and Mojito’s on Sundays. While he’s basically been the same size since high school, I look at pizza dough and gain 1.7 pounds so we occasionally switch up our dough and this is a great substitution. Reminds me of a thin crust pizza

Mini Quiche Duo

Salt & Pepper Pistachios

Sweet Potato Fries


there are no words to describe how good these things are!

Soyaki Sauce


Great on Salmon 

Oven-Baked Cheese Bites

Greek Honey Yogurt

Great for parfait making (the only version of breakfast my husband will eat)

Crispy Rice Salmon Bites


great snacking or when you’re hungry but not full meal hungry

Non-Dairy Oat Beverages


with my world being rocked about Almond milk, I’m trying to transition to oat milk. It’s been a struggle but this has helped a little bit

Organic Spicy Taco Sauce


what’s Taco Tuesday without a spicy taco sauce? 

Soft-Baked Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies


I purposely leave these at work so I don’t eat the entire bag while binge watching You

Creamy Chicken & Poblano Ravioli


Love meal prepping my lunch with this quick and easy pasta

Organic Thick & Chunky Salsa


I’ve tried to make my own salsa and have failed EVERY SINGLE TIME!! This is a great salsa and tastes so fresh

That’s my roundup of my current faves at Trader Joe’s. Stay tuned next month for the home/beauty edition.
