Trader Joe's Haul

trader joe's hi-protein vegan veggie burgers macros

Hi-Protein Vegan Burgers /// The macros are fantastic on these, but the texture is just something I can't get into to. It's so different to any veggie burger I've ever had that I'm having a hard time comparing it to any existing ones out there. I've only made these in the microwave so that's probably my problem, but they are very mushy and fall apart easily even after letting them sit ~5 minutes after cooking. With that said, I'd still buy these again because they're perfect for when I need a lot of protein but don't have much carbs left.

trader joe's silver dollar pancakes

Frozen Silver Dollar Pancakes /// These have been a lifesaver on busy mornings! Grab a few out of the freezer, put them in the microwave, and breakfast is done in a minute. They taste great and my daughter loves them. She eats them plain because she doesn't like maple syrup on pancakes or waffles.. I don't get it either 😜trader joe's organic strawberry smoothie

Organic Strawberry Smoothies /// I'd never bought these before, but my mission on my last Trader Joe's visit was to get some new things that my daughter might like in the mornings because it's tough to get her to eat breakfast sometimes. I bought these strawberry smoothie bottles and she loves them! I figured she would because she's a big fan of kefir. I used to make her smoothies in the morning but our blender broke awhile back and I haven't gotten around to replacing that yet. These are a good substitute in the meantime. Sugar is high in these - 26g a serving - and sugar is the second ingredient after milk, so these are definitely not an every morning thing.

Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups /// The perfect thing to have on hand for when I'm craving something sweet. I'm really good at limiting myself to 2 or 3 of these a day unlike if I bake cookies or something myself.. I will most likely end up eating half the batch myself so I stick to these. I keep these peanut butter cups in the fridge and they're delicious!

trader joe's cowboy caviar

Cowboy Caviar /// I love this stuff for when I make nachos with Beyond Meat crumbles. It's great alone on chips, but the perfect topper for nachos. It's not spicy, but slightly sweet and so good.

trader joe's red lentil sedanini

Red Lentil Pasta /// This pasta is awesome! Each serving is 190 calories / 13g protein / 0.5g fat / 32g carbs / 3g fiber so it has great macros as well. I pair this with a Tofurky Italian sausage and Newman's Own marinara to get a cool 45g of protein in one meal 👍

trader joe's plantain chips

Plantain Chips /// If you haven't had these before, definitely try them! I snack on these all the time. I wouldn't compare them to chips or anything - especially macro wise, they're essential the same there - but they are a lot heartier and satisfying to me. Good stuff!

What are your favorite things to get at Trader Joe's? I'm already making a list so I can stock up next time we drive to Knoxville :]

  1. Cowboy Caviar is so good!! I don't think I've tried any of the other products though- will keep in mind for next time I'm at TJ's!
