My Top 5 Healthy Items From Trader Joe’s
Do you love Trader Joe’s? Are you always looking for healthier alternatives to snacks when you’re shopping around? Have no fear! Here is a quick list of my favorite healthy items that you should grab on your next Trader Joe’s run!
Trader Joe’s Jerk-Style Plantain Chips $1.79
These Plantain Chips are the perfect midday snack! I love how they are sweet, spicy, and salty and I always dip them in my favorite hummus or guacamole. They also make a great, crunchy salad topping and are the perfect alternative to potato chips.
Chili Spiced Dried Mango $2.49
Speaking of sweet and spicy, the Chili Spiced Dried Mango is another one of my favorite healthy snacks. A pro tip of mine is to leave them in the fridge so they’re nice and cold! I even add them on top of vegan yogurt in the morning.
Chocolate Hummus $1.99
Now this one may freak some people out.. Chocolate and hummus? How could it taste good?! I thought the same at first, but you have to try it. It tastes just like brownie batter and with only 5g of sugar! My favorite things to eat it with are fresh fruits like strawberries and pineapple.
My Kosher Cart
Okay, something I will always buy when I go into Trade Joe’s is their sourdough! I love the flavor and consistency of their bread and it is perfect for making avocado toast in the morning and nutrient-packed sandwiches in the afternoon.
Hearts of Palm Pasta $2.99
Another healthy pantry staple of mine is the Trader Joe’s Hearts of Palm Pasta! This is probably the quickest and easiest meal you will ever make and it's packed with fiber as well as other nutrients. Just heat up the pasta in a pan and serve with your favorite sauce and toppings & voila, you have a perfect healthy dinner right in front of you!
Next time you go to Trader Joe’s look out for a few of my favorites while shopping around! They definitely will not disappoint.
