What’s in the trader bag today?

by Healthy Diva on January 18, 2012


Its fun to do the Trader Joe’s weekly post with things I bought there of the week! Some things I buy every single week, but I do find some new stuff too. I will try to only post the new stuff,  but I will also post repeats, my faves!

The goods in the bags  :-D

Clif Mojo bars, the best ever and only 99 cents at Trader Joe’s!

Pocketful of Fiber Pita Bread

Love these for wraps, healthy personal pizzas, or quesadillas!

Ground Turkey 

Great to make turkey chili with or turkey burgers  ;-)

You can make turkey meatballs too, which are delicious!

Peanut Butter Granola Bars

Mike loves these for a afternoon snack, the y have other flavors too, but these are one of his top favorite.

Grape Tomatoes

I get these every single week, perfect to add to my salads  :-D

Soycutash Mix

First time buying this mix, I figured it would be great in a salad, a wrap, or mixed with some cottage cheese and salsa as well.

Red Chile and Garlic Edamame

We love edamame, and once in Florida we had a spicy edamame at a sushi place and loved it. I saw this and knew mike would like it, so Im hoping it is good!

Frozen Strawberries

Frozen fruit is so much cheaper at trader joe’s than anywhere else, at least thats how it is around here. I always get the cherry berry blend but got just some strawberry loving this time.

Tomato Basil Hummus and Roasted Garlic Hummus

I love the tomato basil it is amazing, and the roasted garlic I am trying for the first time. I hardly buy garlic hummus, due to garlic kisses for Mike, haha!

Egg White Salad with Chives

One of my very favorites, get this tub of love every single week!

Eat it right out of the container, with crackers, or in a wrap, and love!

What is in your grocery bag this week or trader joe’s bag if you went there?

Have a great night friends, I will be back tomorrow. Today has been a long day and lots going on, so I am not on my typical schedule, so please understand and I love all of you!

$0.99 for Clif bars is amazing – they’re at least $1.99 everywhere I’ve been! I love grocery shopping, and also checking out others’ groceries!

Have a good relaxy night :)


2 Healthy Diva January 18, 2012 at 6:23 pm

Yes I know, I find them cheapest at Trader Joe’s!

Hope you have a good night too love!

I love grocery shopping… and it’s because of Trader Joes! =)

Love the quote at the end, too. There have been a lot of what-ifs happening in my life. I, too, get very caught up in figuring out the whys. I need to remember to just let things happen and play their course.

Hope you are having a wonderful day today love!


4 Leanne @ The Skinny Architect January 18, 2012 at 6:20 pm

Glad to hear you like the tomato basil hummus, I just bought some this weekend during an impulsive T.J.’s shopping trip but I haven’t eaten any yet.


5 Healthy Diva January 18, 2012 at 6:22 pm

You will LOVE it! I get it every week! : )


6 Tara @ Sweat like a Pig January 18, 2012 at 6:27 pm

This is a random question, but how much did you pay for the ground turkey?


7 Yaara January 18, 2012 at 6:30 pm

Katie–we’re twins!! I went to TJ’s yesterday and got that same big box of grape tomatoes–I’m addicted to those–they taste like grapes or cherries!! I used to eat like 2-5 boxes a day–but had to cut back because my skin turned bright orange!! I also got the egg-white salad–that’s great.
You know–another great find at TJ’s that I love that you should try is the Mache lettuce salad mix. Mache is amazing! It is a soft, leafy lettuce and has a nutty flavor to it!
I also got sweet red peppers and eggplant. Hope your day is going well!!–and I hope Anthony is feeling better!!


8 Cindy January 18, 2012 at 6:39 pm

I love TJ’s too! I’m packing to head back to NYC for the second semester and I stocked up on some of my favorite goodies so I’m all set to go on Monday! Nut butters, of course ;) some of my favorite cereals by Nature’s Path, chia seeds, and tea galore!


9 Healthy Diva January 18, 2012 at 8:55 pm

Glad you stocked up girl!

Their nut butters are great and a great price too ; )


10 Jessica @ Healthy Dairyland January 18, 2012 at 6:40 pm

I love the soycutash blend and that edamame. Hopefully I have time to buzz up to Trader Joe’s this weekend! Happy Wednesday!!


11 Jen@FoodFamilyFitness January 18, 2012 at 6:57 pm

Trader Joe’s has the best prices on salad mixes, frozen fruits and vegetables and hummus. I don’t get there very often, but when I do, that’s what I stock up on! Oh, and the Clif and Luna bars. Another fave of mine at TJ’s is the Spicy Chai Latte mix…I’m pretty sure I have 3 or 4 canisters right now :)


12 lisa January 18, 2012 at 7:19 pm

I just went shopping- got some snacks for college life. veggie chips, smart puffs, chocolate muffins, chex mix (honey nut!) and of course the healthy stuff like chobani, cottage cheese and nut butters!
oh. and a jar of Biscoff spread. TOO good!


13 Healthy Diva January 18, 2012 at 8:55 pm

Oh chex mix is so good! I try to keep cereal away now, I found myself eating it for too many meals, haha!

I really need to do that : )

Happy Thursday!


28 The Girlie Blogger January 18, 2012 at 10:43 pm

Super yummy stuff Diva. We eat edamamme as a snack. Love how it’s loaded with soy and protein.



29 Healthy Diva January 19, 2012 at 8:15 am

Yes edamame is so good and good for you ; )


30 Emily January 18, 2012 at 11:00 pm

Trader Joes is amazing. Plain and simple.
I am hopelessly addicted to their grape tomatoes and eggplant hummus. I buy them every week, without fail! And I love how cheap all of their Clif, Luna, and Clif Mojo bars are. How can you beat 99 cents??
You’re going to love the soycutash! I use it for so many different things. It’s really yummy if you mix it in with stir fried veggies. (:


31 Healthy Diva January 19, 2012 at 8:14 am

Yes it is amazing there! Oh you can’t beat the price of the luna bars or clif bars, I get them there every week!


32 Liz @ iheartvegetables January 18, 2012 at 11:02 pm

I’ve never seen those pocket full of fiber pitas!!! I’m definitely keep an eye out for those next time!


33 Healthy Diva January 19, 2012 at 8:14 am

Yeah, they are great to stuff with something good ; ) or use as a pizza!


34 Linz @ ItzLinz January 18, 2012 at 11:51 pm

Frozen fruit is the best from TJs! I always get the wild blueberries! I should try the cherry blend!


35 Emily January 19, 2012 at 2:15 pm

Last week I bought the cherry berry blend too (since they were out of the one with out cherries) and now I love that one even more! I also bought ground turkey. :) (among other things)


36 Healthy Diva January 19, 2012 at 4:01 pm

The cherry berry blend rocks ; )

Oh how can you not buy so much when there! Love TJ’s!
