Wellness Wednesday: 46 Favorite Finds at Trader Joe’s

Here are 46 of our favorite finds at Trader Joe’s including recipes to use their products in. What do you love at Trader Joe’s?

Happy Wellness Wednesday, everyone! I hope you’ve had a fabulous week so far. I landed in NYC late last night after a couple days of recipe-testing at AK HQ, and I couldn’t be more excited to share all of the new recipes with you guys (Abra and I had trouble just fitting them all into the upcoming weeks!).

If you know me at all, you know I LOVE Trader Joe’s. Not only do I find it less expensive than most grocery stores here in Chicago, but I love their fun, new products and bopping around in those cute little red carts. Of course, it’s essential to avoid the Trader Joe traffic so I find that early morning shopping is best.

Before I left for NYC, Abra and I took a trip to Trader J’s to stock up on staples, specifics for the new recipes, and a few things we thought looked interesting + delicious.

Give me an empty cart at TJ’s and I can go wild… SO we rounded up 46 of our favorite finds at Trader Joe’s for you to check out. Ready?
