What I Bought at Trader Joe's

Hey y'all! I hope your week is off to a great start! We finally have a Trader Joe's in Greensboro! We have been driving to Winston-Salem (which is about 45-50 minutes away) to get our Trader Joe's fix for the past few years. But, now we have one so much closer and I am so super excited! I know, it's a grocery store but it's not just any grocery. They have great prices, unique products, and excellent customer service! It's just our very favorite place to shop for food. 

The new store just opened this past Thursday so we had to make a stop in over the weekend to grab some of our favorites and some new things try. I'm super nosy and I love snooping into other people's carts (I used to work at a grocery store in high school and I was always amazed at the weird combinations of things that people purchased) to see what they are buying, especially at Trader Joe's. So today, I'm going to share what I grabbed on this Trader Joe's run!

1. Cauliflower Gnocchi | This is one of my all-time favorite items at Trader Joe's! I love to cook it in a skillet with a little butter, salt, and pepper until it's golden brown. Such a delicious side item!

2. Plantain Chips | They are such a great, guilt free snack. I love to use them for salsa or other dips or they are also just really good all on their own.

3. Gone Bananas and Gone Berry Crazy | What better way to eat fruit than when it's been dipped in chocolate?! So yummy! I can eat a whole box at one time.

4. Avocado Tzatziki Dip | This is a new item for me so I'll report back on what I think. It sounds so good though and has great, simple ingredients. Another thing I love about TJ's!

5. Heirloom Popcorn | Another great, low guilt snack!

6. Mini Corn Tacos | This was the first time I've bought these and I haven't tried them yet so I'll report back. I'm planning to eat them for lunch with one day this week.

7. Mashed Sweet Potatoes | This was another new purchase for me and we had them as a side for dinner last night. Sweet potatoes made simple! We just added butter, stevia, and cinnamon.

8. Mandarin Orange Chicken | I had seen this orange chicken all over Instagram so I decided to give it a try. We had it for dinner on Sunday night and my girls loved it! Such a great, easy dinner idea and it's kid friendly.

9. Vegetable Fried Rice | We served the mandarin orange chicken with this vegetable fried rice. Such a yummy dinner combo! We will definitely grab it again.

10. Simpler Wines Rosè | I absolutely love bubbly wines and this is such a great one. Also, super budget friendly! It's five dollars for four cans.

11. Gluten Free Pumpkin Bread and Muffin Baking Mix | This was another repeat buy! We made muffins with this mix a couple of weeks ago and they were so good. My husband couldn't even tell that they were gluten free!

12. Bamba Peanut Snacks | These peanut snacks were an impulse purchase. I was intrigued! I just tried them yesterday and they were actually really good. I would definitely buy these again. A great, low calorie snack option!
