My biggest food excitement recently (aside from our Mother’s Day breakfast) has to be that Trader Joe’s brought back the colorful carrot coins to their frozen section! A very kind reader notified me when she spotted them at Trader Joe’s the other day and I can’t thank her enough! She totally made my day with this information.
I made a special stop at Trader Joe’s as soon as I could after receiving the notification that the colorful carrot coins were in stock. Of course a part of me was nervous that my Trader Joe’s wouldn’t have the colorful carrot coins in stock but they did!
Since then, my big salads have been looking like this! A mix of romaine, cruciferous crunch, the colorful carrot coins, grape tomatoes, chick peas, and avocado. I also add a shake of the everything but the bagel seasoning – it’s so good on salads!
I needed something different to add to my salads as of late and heating up the colorful carrot coins before mixing them with the other ingredients is just perfect.
If the colorful carrot coins could come back, I now wonder if Trader Joe’s ever plans to bring back my onion rings to their frozen section. It’s maddening when good products are suddenly missing from their shelves! And also, that frozen root vegetable blend. I liked that too.
Also! I enjoyed this salad one night when my son requested Moe’s for dinner. As I was eating it, I decided that I really do prefer Moe’s over Chipotle. While Chipotle gives a heavier hand with the guacamole, Moe’s offers me more toppings.
And a typical salad order at Panera. Apparently I eat a lot of salads these days. Do you like Panera’s hummus as much as I do? It’s been a favorite of mine for years. I love it combined with avocado in a salad.
It had been a long time since I had a Synergy Organic Kombucha! I used to grab a bottle all the time while at Whole Foods or even Target but then stopped. I picked one up at Whole Foods yesterday on a whim while shopping and really enjoyed it. Maybe next time I’m in Target (which is like every other day) I will get more as they are a little cheaper there (plus I get 5% off when I shop at Target with my Red Card).
What foods do you miss from Trader Joe’s that they used to sell but no longer seem to sell?
Do you love the colorful carrot coins too?
Are you a Kombucha drinker? Which one is your favorite?
