Trader Joe’s Love + Free Updated Shopping List!

Dear Trader Joe’s,

I miss you but it’s a good thing I stocked up well before quarantine with enough nut butters and chocolate to last me for months.  I remember other customers looking at me both because of the abundance of nuts in my cart and also because they thought I was nuts. I am on my last 2 jars (crunchy raw almond and organic peanut) so it’s time to go back which is why I was inspired to create an updated FREE shopping list of all my healthy picks just for you!

Want to know what to buy? Grab my list below!

I love TJ’s because it helps busy mamas like me. With just a few staple items in my house at all times, it allows me to create quick and easy meals in a snap.  The cut and washed produce and other “shortcuts” as I like to call them (frozen fruits and veggies, 3-minute brown rice, salad kits, individual nut packs, etc.) are a lifesaver.  Believe me, I don’t like prepping either! The little dark chocolate wedges in the tin by the registers are the nighttime-sweet-shut-it-down-for-the-day tool in our healthy toolboxes.  They are everything!

Plus, my bill is always significantly lower at the end of each shop because the prices are always right.  I swear no matter how much I buy, I’m shocked at how reasonable everything is.  Anyway I could go on and on…

 And just remember as with any grocery store, 99% of the items on the shelves are NOT healthy choices so I have done the homework for you and narrowed it down to my favorites.

So grab my FREE HEALTHY TJ’S SHOPPING LIST at and get your mask on because it’s time to head back!  Happy shopping!
