I decided to do a trader joe’s haul because it is my current obsession! I mean seriously you can’t beat the prices. They have a lot of organic products which I love! The first time I went to trader joe’s was a few weeks ago and I fell in love. First the prices of course, but they also have a product selection that you will not find at any other grocery stores. Every time I go here I try to get a few new things to try, which is always fun. Also, can we talk about the employees? AMAZING. Keep reading to see what I got for my trader joe’s haul.
What I got:
Organic Pumpkin Puree- I use this to make a vegan pumpkin spice latte. I also used this to make pumpkin and cookie butter muffins and they were delicious!
Unsalted Peanut Butter- This is my favorite peanut butter because the only ingredients are peanuts.
Cookie Butter- When I first tried this I was not really a fan and was actually kind of let down. However, I made cookies and muffins with it and let me tell you something… they were the best damn cookies I ever had!
Frozen Mango- YUM! I love frozen mango in my smoothies with some berries.
Cucumber- I use this to make fresh juice.
Zucchini- I actually used this yesterday to make zucchini noodles and shrimp. Surprisingly it turned out really good.. not as good as regular pasta but it did the job.
Sardines- I know some of you probably think sardines are gross, but with the right seasoning, they are beyond ;). Plus, they are very healthy with you.
Chicken Chow Mein- This is something that I wanted to try out. I am sure you can make a much healthier version at home, but I wanted something that was going to be quick.
Pizza Crust- Ugh I made this the other day and now I want more. I added tomato, mozzarella, basil, and olive oil and it was soooo good. I loved it because the crust was not too thick or too thin which is always my issue.
Thai Red Curry Sauce- I got this to make a vegetable curry type of thing… yeah I am not too sure yet.
Ezekial Bread- I AM SO DISAPPOINTED BY THIS BREAD. I have watched so many youtube videos of people using this bread and say it is delicious. WRONG, this is the most disgusting bread I ever had and in my opinion is a disgrace to bread. Sorry.
Bread Crumbs- I wanted to get these because well if we’re being real I saw they were organic and couldn’t say no. I made the BEST chicken with these breadcrumbs yesterday, I am going to have to share the recipe soon.
Miyoko’s Vegan Butter- This vegan butter honestly tastes just like regular butter to me. It was the most expensive thing in this haul but definitely worth it to me. Plus, the ingredients are clean.
Peanut Butter Cups- Now for the real reason why I go to trader joe’s… these are the best thing that ever happened to me. I am not even being dramatic (okay maybe a little), but seriously if you get anything from this BUY THESE. They also have dark chocolate but I prefer milk. I love that the peanut butter does not taste processed. Please get these and let me know what you think!
Let me know if you liked this trader joe’s haul and if you try anything from here, or have any suggestions!
