Trader Joe’s is one of our happy places. From the pre-washed and pre-chopped veggies that are easy to grab to their incredible chocolate snacks, we’re in love. You can really go to town at TJ’s with all of their unique and fun products, but today we’re talking healthy items. There are so many healthy things offered that won’t break the bank. Just close your eyes when you walk past that cookie butter (but then again, you’ve got to #treatyoself too). Here are our Top 10 Healthy Things to Buy at Trader Joe’s right now:
Cauliflower Pizza Crust | Our dreams have come true and can be found in the freezer section.
Organic Red Lentil Pasta | Gluten-free, nutrition-full pasta. Yes. Please. Top it off with marinara and some Italian chicken sausage and fresh basil and you’ve got a meal.
Everything But The Bagel Sesame Seasoning | This stuff is addictive and you’ll want to put it on everything: avocado toast, salads, eggs. You name it. This $2 seasoning will go a long, long way.
Nut Butter | Unlike health grocers, TJ’s actually offers nut butters at a reasonable price. And if you look at the ingredients, they are clean as can be – no added oils! Pro tip: there’s also a yummy Sunflower Seed Spread alternative for those with a nut allergies in the same section as the nut butters.
Organic Popcorn with Olive Oil | The tastiest, low-cal, clean snack. Once you pop…
Ancient Grains & Nuts Granola | This one is lower sugar than the rest and contains amaranth, quinoa, chia seeds and other superfoods. Tastes delicious on top of a yogurt bowl and smoothie. Or by the handful!
Fully Cooked Organic Quinoa | Also found in the freezer section. Poke a few holes in the bag, microwave, and you’ve got fresh, fluffy quinoa on hand. We love adding it to our salads or making burrito bowls with quinoa instead of rice.
Avocado Oil | A kitchen staple. It’s high in healthy fats and also has a high cooking temperature so its perfect for cooking your favorite foods. Also, it comes at a lower price tag than most other stores – win!
Acai Packets | Tired of spending $10 every time you’re craving an acai bowl? Pick up acai packets in the frozen section and make smoothie bowls at home.
Organic Superfoods Pilaf | This is the easiest, quickest healthy meal for when you’re in a pinch. Found in the freezer section, this meal packs a punch with tricolored quinoa, sweet potatoes, kale and carrots. We love topping pairing it with ground turkey or a grilled chicken breast or a fried egg.
