Hey friends!!!! How is your week going so far? Ours has been pretty normal and non-eventful, which is really nice sometimes. 🙂 We are going to the Taylor Swift concert this weekend (!!!!) and I cannot freaking wait! Call me crazy, I don’t care. I love Taylor Swift and I think her music is awesome. It has definitely changed over the years, but I still really like it!
Did I ever tell you guys that some of my high school friends and I got to meet her on her tourbus in a Walmart parking lot when we were in high school? This was back before she was super famous. She was so genuine and really sweet, and SUPER tall. We had a really fun time chatting with her… she said she loved my name. 😉
Anyway, today I am sharing my latest favorite finds at Trader Joes. I don’t shop at Trader Joes often because I usually can’t get everything I want from there and it’s not in a very convenient location for me to go shopping, but I do love stopping by there every now and then to stock up on some goodies! I really love all of there snack items and dips! Let’s get started!! Here’s what I picked up on my latest trip to Trader Joes!
Broccoli Florets. You guys, these are so so so good. They are like freeze-dried pieces of broccoli with yummy seasoning. Great for an easy snack, but if you are like me, the whole bag is usually gone in one sitting. Whoops. 🙂
I love all of their different types of trail mix. I usually stick to one with raw nuts and maybe some raisins, but they have a ton of unique ones with different types of nuts, seeds and dried fruit. They also have individual portioned packs of trail mix which I will occasionally buy so I don’t eat 5 servings at once! This Go Raw Trek Mix is super yummy with walnuts, almonds, cashews, hazelnuts, and raisins.
My husband and I are obsessed with pistachios and Trader Joes has such a good price for them. I think this bag was around $5. They do have the pre-shelled ones, but for some reason I like the process of taking the shells off myself. Weird, I know. 🙂
I just tried these cheese bites for the first time the other day and I am still on the fence about them. It’s like dried out, crunchy, cheese cracker. I don’t think I love the by themselves, but I think they would make a really yummy crouton on a salad so I think I will give that a go soon! They do pack a good punch of protein so that is nice.
A little girl I used to babysit way back in the day was obsessed with all kinds of freeze-dried fruit and she got me hooked. I don’t buy them often because I cannot portion control them for the life of me, but had to pick up a bag of these bananas the other day. I love all the freeze-dried berries, but the bananas are definitely my favorite.
