I’m making it a point to take pictures of my Trader Joe’s shopping cart every few weeks so that I can share what I’ve been buying (and eating) lately.
Here’s a look at my Trader Joe’s shopping cart from a couple of days ago. It’s really just a bunch of my weekly staples plus some odds and ends that I noticed were running starting to run low (like oatmeal and ketchup!).
- Romaine Lettuce
- Baby Carrots
- Grape Tomatoes
Forgot to buy apples. Ugh!
Frozen Fruit & Vegetables:
- String Beans
- Brussels Sprouts
- Roasted Peppers & Onions
- Blueberries < – I love frozen blueberries in my oatmeal. I stopped eating fresh blueberries so long ago after a stomach virus!
- Organic Steel Cut Oatmeal
- Organic Ketchup
- Organic Fair Trade Columbian Coffee K Cups
- Organic Chick Peas
- Organic Tomato Paste
- Organic Crunchy Salted Peanut Butter
- Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
- Balsamic Dressing
I’m scared because I didn’t see the everything but the bagel sesame seasoning on the shelf with the other spices and seasonings. I actually read on Instagram that other people haven’t seen it either. Have you seen it recently?!
- Ground Turkey < – For my son. I will probably make this into taco meat or chili.
- Skim Milk
- Whole Wheat Pizza Dough
My grocery shopping would probably have better structure to it if I were a more meal planner. But I’m not. A friend of mine is looking to get into some meal planning though and asked me for a few plant-based recipes, among other meal planning ideas. I know how to meal plan so I can advise on it, I just don’t do it myself. 🙂
I thought maybe you would be interested in the recipes I shared with her from here on the blog!
Black Bean & Quinoa Chili < – Love this recipe. Will probably make it this week! Also, for my son, I would make his turkey chili basically like this recipe, only with the addition of ground turkey. He likes quinoa now so this meal comes out terrific.
Eggplant Cacciatore < – This was always so easy and good! Definitely considering an eggplant as part of my grocery shopping list for later this week.
Sweet Potato, Black Bean & Quinoa Burgers< – I loved making these burgers and keeping a bunch in the freezer.
Oh! And I had lunch from The Little Beet yesterday. I hadn’t had The Little Beet in a really long time!
I created my own bowl which contained a brussels sprouts salad, a cucumber and greens mix, roasted green beans, and a delicious avocado white bean dip. I really liked this lunch!
