About our team WE LOVE TRADER JOE'S: My favs.

Sunday, September 08, 2013

Since I just wrote a blog about my teams, I thought I would write about Trader Joes:

I know TJ is kinda of out of the way! I use to live in N.AZ & traveled 3 hours to get to the nearest 1! I contacted the CEO several times to open one in our area. After YEARS they finally did, but now I do not live there any more. The people of Prescott AZ are quite pleased, though! I would take coolers with ice packs with me. (Not good for their coconut ice creams, though, haha!)

Have fun when you DO go! Make a lovely day of it. I'm not sure what you like there, but some of my favs. are raw cashews, soy protein pd, Very green drink powder, raw single serve nut packs, pear salad dressing & cranberry salad dressing, near the salad greens, low fat cheese sticks, 70% chocolate bars, small, light kettle corn= single serve, BBQ pops (baked potato chips) Peace Peas= like a roasted pea snack, unsweetened almond milk, chocolate almond milk (LOVE this HOT!), unsweetened coconut drink= I use for cereal, etc., Olive oil, raw honey, french coffee, Charles Shaw wines, almond horns= a cookie in the bakery area= they are dipped in chocolate on 1 end. About 180 cals EACH, they are for VERY special occasions only for us, I sometimes cut in half & serve like that.... some are with chocolate & some are without! Cooked Brown rice packs= great for traveling! Single serve HIGH protein oatmeal packs, fresh carrot juice, 3 triple ginger cookies, baked tofu, Just chicken already cooked, Raw turkey roll, stuffed.... this is VERY pricey but delicious, makes the house smell delightful! Tiny yams, they look like little fingers, they cook quickly & are DELICIOUS plain! & quick for the season! & the list goes on!

I love Trader Joes! I have even thought about working at one in our area, if I need another job, but not time for that right now!

Have a Sparkling healthy day!

    Yep, TJ's has some wonderful food, especially for when you don't have time to cook. The chana masala, the sweet corn tamales... and the Dark Chocolate Lover's Chocolate Bar, oooooo, so good one square is a satisfying treat. Thanks for sharing the TJ's love.

    I too LOVE Trader Joes! They opened one in Naples about 1 year and 1/2 ago and the first day it was so MOBBED you couldn't find a parking place. Guess that says something for how popular REAL food is to people. I like that it is so much more reasonably priced than Whole Foods also.

    I need to get down there more often...I get a mailer every month of all their specials...must remind myself to take that 25 minute drive and GET there!

    Hugs to you my dear friend! emoticon emoticon
