If you know me, then you know I LOVE Trader Joes! I've been going to the same one in Dallas for several years that all the managers know me and they are all so nice! When Jackson was born and I started bringing him, one of the managers would always come by and say hi to us. I just love the small community feel and of course their products and prices can't be beat!

I've organized my favorite products in categories to make it easy. One thing about TJ's that I don't especially love, is that there are several products that are seasonal and only come out once a year for 2-3 months. So it's a bummer when you get hooked on a product and go to buy more and they tell you that it was just a seasonal item and won't be back till next year :(


  • Precut Veggies (Butternut squash crinkle "fries", Sweet potato cubes)

  • Cooked Beets (love these for salads)

  • Bulk bags of Potatoes (these are SO cheap)

  • Green Goddess Dressing (by the salad mixes-freshly made, so good)


  • Wild Caught Sockeye Salmon

  • Chile Lime Chicken Burgers

  • Cauliflower Rice

  • Cauliflower Gnocchi

  • Jasmine Rice

  • Shredded Hash browns (Only ingredient is shredded potatoes. Eat these almost everyday for breakfast!)

  • Frozen Berries

  • Colorful Carrot Coins (These are GOLD! I buy bags of them!! They are made with a little olive oil and thyme, salt and pepper! So yummy!)

  • Frozen Sweet Potato Mash (One of my favs! Unfortunately it's seasonal. I don't get why!! It's so nice to have in a pinch! Great for babies)

  • Tandoori Naan Bread


  • Nonfat Plain Greek Yogurt (great price!)

  • Dry Rubbed Bacon (so yummy and only 3g of fat for 2 slices)

  • Sun Dried Tomato and basil chicken sausages

  • 96/4 Lean Ground Beef

  • Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast

  • Lean Ground Turkey

  • Light Shredded 3 Cheese Blend

  • Fat Free Crumbled Feta

  • Cranberry Goat Cheese Log (this is usually seasonal but so yummy for a cheese board)


  • Reduced Guilt Guacamole (so good!!)

  • Hummus (they have tons of different varieties)

  • Avocado Tzatziki (LOVE this the most!)

  • Salsa (I love their Roasted Chipotle one and there are several other ones that are good)

  • Everything but the bagel seasoning (yummy on eggs, avocado toast, salads, just about everything!)

  • Peanut Butter (their PB is my favorite!)

  • Pumpkin Cream Cheese (Seasonal! Yummy spread on pumpkin pancakes)

  • Fig Butter (I'm not sure but I THINK this one's Seasonal too. But it's SO good! I first got it for a cheese board I made for Friendsgiving and then I used it for Grilled cheese-AMAZING)


  • Brown Rice Tortillas

  • Sourdough Bread

  • GF Pumpkin spice bagels (So GOOD!! But, Seasonal!)

  • GF Pumpkin Spice Pancake Mix (Seasonal)

  • Plantain Chips

  • Kettle Cooked Chicken Soup (tastes homemade-so good! Discovered this one in pregnancy and it was all I wanted along with my turkey sandwiches...if you know, you know)

  • Quick Cooking Quinoa & Brown Rice Pasta

  • Canned Sockeye Salmon (loving having this in the pantry for easy protein. Jack loves it too!)

  • Coconut Oil Nonstick Spray


  • Dark Chocolate PB Cups (BEST for that sweet tooth! I found these during the second half of my pregnancy and ate 2-3 EVERY DAY all through pregnancy and then after Jack was born they were my treat after a hard day with a newborn)

  • Dark Chocolate Pretzel Slims (SOOOO good!! They also have a Peppermint one at christmas time that's dangerous!)

Did I miss anything?! I probably did!

Tell me, what are some of YOUR favorite TJ's must-haves?

Stay Strong Ladies!
