I typically try to get my food shopping accomplished before the weekend begins so I can free up Saturday and Sunday for enjoyment rather than errands.
In case you are looking for some shopping list inspiration suggestions in addition to the Trader Joe’s Favorites For Runners from last week, I put together a list of what my typical Trader Joe’s shop looks like lately.
Of course there are things I am forgetting to include like the above pictured fresh pineapple because my son was with me and requested one. In general, this list is my focus and I add things each time based upon what I feel like, what’s in season, what’s new, what’s lacking in my pantry (if I ran out of quinoa or lentils) and what my son throws in the cart.
I do pick some things up at other stores like Whole Foods, Fairway and ShopRite, depending upon availability and sales.
I wish Trader Joe’s sold Kombucha because I am sort of developing a habit and fondness for the stuff.
I sipped some as I shopped quickly yesterday afternoon for a few things in Whole Foods and I think Cosmic Cranberry is my favorite flavor so far.
Recipe Links Of Interest:
I have been pinning up a storm of good stuff lately and wanted to share some of the recipe links today so that you could pick up some of the ingredients if needed over the weekend:
Thai Cauliflower Rice – super simple recipe that incorporates Sweet Chili Sauce which I love from Trader Joe’s so make sure it’s on your list!
Chocolate Chip Blueberry Bars – do we want to discuss that fresh blueberries are suddenly disappearing from store shelves for the season around here?
Paleo Chocolate Zucchini Bread – add organic zucchini to your grocery list!
I had planned on making this Peanut Butter Cookie Cereal with Chocolate Milk as soon as I came across the recipe but then I went on autopilot and ending up making my own peanut butter banana protein bites.
I didn’t follow my own recipe exactly though, I left out the chocolate chips and forgot the cinnamon but even so, these bites are crazy delicious and addicting. Let me know if you make them!
Have a great weekend 🙂My grocery list plus lots of yummy recipe links! #traderjoes #groceries #shoppinglist #recipes #proteinbites @healthyskoop Click To Tweet
