It's me just living the my life obsessed with all things Trader Joe's. Still. Can't stop. Won't stop. It wouldn't be right if I didn't tell you about the THREE new gf cereals they have. Have you been to Trader Joe's yet? If so, what are your favorite gluten-free products? I love that they are always coming up with new products. The only negative is that some of my favorites are temporary or seasonal. The good news is, I'm just as likely to like next new products as I was the last.
Ok, it’s real. You’ve heard of Cupcake winery right? Well, they debuted some vodka . And it’s $2.99 a bottle. Only at Trader Joe’s. I left it all on the shelf for you guys.... I’m not going near it. It’s all yours. You’re welcome.
@Regrann from @cynthjewel - Chia seed pudding is so versatile. Strawberry Banana Honey Yogurt Overnight Oats with Chia Seed Pudding. That's a mouthful, isn't it! So does this yummy, yummy pudding. 😋😋🍓🍌
My favorite breakfast is Overnight Oats with lots of protein and fiber! Try this Chia Seed Pudding Overnight Oats packed with and fiber!
To make chia seed pudding, mix together 3/4 C Unsweetened Almond Milk, 1/3 C chia seeds, 1 scoop Sunwarrior Vanilla Protein Powder, 1 t stevia extract or 1 T maple syrup. Leave in refrigerator overnight.
To make overnight oats, mix together 2 handfuls of rolled oats, 1/2 C prepared chia seed pudding, 1/2 C vanilla yogurt, dairy or non dairy for vegans and sliced fresh or dried strawberries. ☝🏼Optional: Drizzle with 1 T honey or maple syrup or raw agave nectar for vegan option. Leave in refrigerator overnight. Top with sliced bananas!
I used Trader Joe's Dried Strawberries.
My friend and her sisiter invited me about on January, but I thought I couldn't make it as I work on weekends, but as they changed time, I can be there today.
They are #vegan and I went to #TraderJoes to buy #pasties , but there was only banana walnut bread for vegan option, so I bought some cider and wine. I didn't consider that I need to walk about 22 minutes as I don't drive( I had to cancel my driving test for some reason, and my driving permit is expired.), and it gave me kind of trouble to carry them. But it was time for me to reflect on myself and I made up mind to meditate more regularly.
@traderjoes cauliflower gnocchi, brussel sprouts, and shrimp tossed in their cashew fiesta dip 🥰 thank you @sara.haven for the amazing suggestion of eating cauliflower gnocchi with the cashew fiesta dip! definitely a game changer 😊
Decided to make a dinner/breakfast hybrid using @traderjoes GF everything bagel, cheddar, bacon and @bellandevans GF breaded chicken patty 🥯 🧀 🥓 🍗 After all the sweets this week, this was very needed and too good for words 😋
Woke up, went to Galentine’s brunch, found a new grocery store and had the time of my life, and basically went back to bed (ok the couch but ya know). I felt a cold coming on this morning so I’ve just been taking it easy the rest of the day. AKA reading and eating a bagel so hey it’s not so bad 😛
🥯: @alvaradostreetbakery sprouted wheat bagel with @georgiagrinders pecan butter and chia seeds. Other half was topped with @miyokoscreamery vegan cream cheese and @traderjoeslist everything but the bagel seasoning

A 6 point pizza for dinner tonight. 1 @kboshfood broccoli crust (3 sp), 3 sp worth of @traderjoes light cheese mix, and @theskinnyishdish zero point crockpot sauce. Really good! I’m going to try to crisp up the crust a little in a cast iron skillet next time, but, other than that, it was pretty good! I’d have added onions and mushrooms but I was in a hurry :)
Basic ass caesar salad?? Thank u, next. taking things to the next level with some salmon and pseudo croutons made by crisping up some cauli gnocchi in the oven! My thoughts on this: I see it, I like it, I want it, I make it. 🤪 thx @arianagrande for the weekend MOOD
It's a lovely cool weekend here, and we're enjoying the open windows (while our AC is on break/getting repaired). It's so quiet and pleasant, and kinda fun to hear our neighbors come and go. Reminds me of a simpler time. I hope you all have a happy Saturday! #refiningthenest
For the 8th time this month, I would like to apologize to all the customers at @traderjoes today that had to swerve out of the way due to Emmie’s violent driving of the shopping cart. She’s getting better I promise.
Quick lunch today - heated fresh chopped broccoli and red onions in a pan on medium-high heat with olive oil cooking spray, about 5 minutes. Added turmeric and cumin a couple minutes into cooking. Then added TJ’s frozen cauli gnocchi and stirred some more, a few more minutes until almost cooked through. Then added minced garlic from a jar, and some Gardein meatless ground “meat” and continued to heat. When everything was heated through, seasoned with a few cranks of salt and some TJ’s Everything but the Bagel seasoning. Dessert was some Lil Buff Protein chocolate cake. Went on a 20 min jog and had a 20 min Tone it Up workout today- trying to burn off some random energy I have. Must be the 3 cups of Nespresso lattes I made 🤔😝. #traderjoes#traderjoescauliflowergnocchi#everythingbutthebagel#gardein#stirfry#healthylunchideas
if you love ginger salad please go out and get this dressing it’s perfect 🥕 • all from TJ: jasmine rice on the bottom, butter lettuce, persian cucumbers, tomato, yellow pepper, avo. I also added a leftover chicken tender (previous post)! ☺️🧡
Thanking la #Pachamama & @Kari_barranco for this sunny day and lovely lunch she got just for me; I have the best roomie😌 My coworkers ask why I make a dash for the exit every break I have, and my answer is always, “It’s so beautiful outside! How could I not?”💚🤪
saturday shopping is a zoo 🐾
After sitting at the doctors office for a 2 hour glucose test, we hit the streets for some groceries! Target + TJs + Costco = a happy home. Now, off to the in-laws for a full, authentic Arab dinner. What did your Saturday look like, friends??

Trying out the new pizza crust from Trader Joe's. Onion, mushrooms, sausage, spinach and basil along with the sauce. Tasty!
Store # 3 - Trader Joe’s!
Did a little poll on my stories to see how much you guys guessed this haul cost and most guessed $40-60! The highest guess was almost $90 (?!) and the lowest $17, which was literally my mom. You could’ve checked my bank account girl, so disappointed.
All this just shows that healthy grocery shopping is sometimes misconstrued. You can find deals and 1000% go even cheaper than this.
I know not everyone has access to Trader Joe’s, but they’re popping up more and more and if you do, it’s a great choice to save some $$. And, much to my excitement, they are working to decrease their packaging on produce to be more sustainable. I’ll be waitin 👏🏻 @traderjoes
This should last me 5-6 days, given i already have pasta and quinoa and such from sprouts. If i were needing those things it’d be closer to around $42, which is still a good deal for me. Again, you could definitely get things cheaper than this as well by buying conventional rather than organic!
Do you shop at Trader Joe’s? Do you have access to one? Comment below!
One thing I love/hate about myself is that I will wake up at the same time every day, no matter what time I go to sleep😒 So even though I could have “slept in” today, I still woke up at 6:30am😐 Anyone else have the same struggle?
Throwing it back to this sweet and savory waffle combo I had last weekend 😍 because I’m about to head to @inbalancesa for a workout with @bethsdailyplate 💃🏼 Then we’re going to make crepes for brunch 🤤 HAPPY WEEKEND!
“Though the fig tree should not blossom, nor fruit be on the vines, the produce of the olive fail and the fields yield no food, the flock be cut off from the fold and there be no herd in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord; I will take joy in the God of my salvation.”
