Trader Joe’s Favorites: Things I Always Buy at TJ’s


When I lived back east the closest Trader Joe’s was 45 minutes away so I barely ever made the trip there. When I moved to Southern California I was excited to find out that stores were located all over the South Bay! Trader Joe’s is where I do most of my grocery shopping now. Sometimes I head to Whole Foods and Von’s for a few things, but I try to buy the majority at TJ’s.

Here is everything that is usually on my Trader Joe’s shopping list:

  • Lemon chicken and arugula to-go salad (lunch for work when I’m too lazy to meal prep)
  • One bars (almond bliss and birthday cake) (pre- workout)
  • Sourdough bread
  • Vanilla overnight oats (an easy breakfast for work when I’m too lazy to meal prep)
  • Goat cheese
  • Fat free crumbled feta
  • Frozen cauliflower gnocchi
  • Chile lime chicken burgers
  • Jalopeno chicken sausage
  • Garlic or Mediterranean hummus
  • Carrots
  • These sprinkles walk into a sandwich cookies 
  • Very berry clusters cereal
  • Chunky salsa
  • Sesame honey cashews (great for salads)
  • Coconut oil spray
  • Everything but the bagel seasoning
  • Bolognese sauce
  • Frozen brown rice
  • Egg whites
  • Vanilla almond and coconut milk creamer
  • Vanilla unsweetened almond milk
  • 99% lean ground turkey
  • Chicken breasts
  • Cashew or peanut butter
  • Romaine lettuce
  • Strawberries
  • Raspberries
  • Blueberries
  • Banana
  • Watermelon
  • Honey crisp apples
  • Sriracha
  • Honey pale ale mustard (love dipping sweet potatoes in this)
  • Sweet potatoes
  • Red onion
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Cucumbers
