You know I love to shop at Trader Joe’s, but the truth is, there are a few items that Trader Joe’s doesn’t carry that I wish they did!
I can do almost all of my food shopping at Trader Joe’s but still need to fill in from time to time from other grocery stores.
Nutritional Yeast – This is the one item that sends me to Whole Foods most of the time. Not only do I like the taste of Nutritional Yeast, as a vegetarian, I need the B Vitamins.
Plantains – Like, what’s the big deal for stocking them? Sell them in the area next to the bananas.
Japanese Sweet Potatoes – Carrying these sweet potatoes only sometimes is not okay! The other grocery stores always have some sort of variety including the Japanese, white, red, purple etc.
Onion Rings – They had them until they didn’t. Bring them back to the frozen section please!
More organic/hormone-free meat/poultry – Especially in the frozen food section. Most of the frozen meals are not made with organic or free range or at the very least, hormone/antibiotic free meat or poultry. The shrimp stir frys are not made with wild shrimp either. I understand it would cost a little bit more money but there are some of us who are willing to pay it. Offer both options!
What do you wish Trader Joe’s sold? I would love to know!
It’s time to start planning out dinners for next week. After a week-long winter break which saw a bunch of meals out of the house, I have to think ahead a bit to what we will eat next week when life gets a little more hectic again and back to routine.
Sunday – Zucchini Noodles with Cherry Tomatoes Garlic Cream Sauce – I keep meaning to use my spiralizer! Perfect recipe for it.
Monday – Some sort of chicken and baked potato for my son (he’s thrilled < – not really) & Power Bowl for me
Tuesday – Pizza night
Wednesday – Breakfast for dinner (omelets and homefries < – made with sweet potatoes)
Thursday – Roasted Broccoli Tomato Soup – We will both like this I think, we grilled cheese or potatoes.
Friday – Probably Out for Dinner, if not, something like this Roasted Cauliflower Broccoli Stuffed Potatoes with Cheesy Butternut Sauce
Saturday – Out for Dinner
Other Recipes of Interest:
Pinata Cake – Already decided that I am making this for my birthday this year. And probably not sharing.
