Wellness Wednesday: 29 Healthy Things to Buy at Trader Joe’s

Everyone loves Trader Joe’s, right? Well I’m a SUPER fan, and I thought it would be fun to tell you all about my favorite healthy products I purchase frequently from good old TJ’s.

This post may contain affiliate links, which means that I make a small commission off items you purchase at no additional cost to you. Please read my policy page.

apples at trader joes

1. Fruit. I love that I’m able to find seasonal fruit at Trader Joe’s. They even have organic apples year round.

tomatoes and avocados at trader joes

2. Fresh veggies. Okay so there’s a picture of an avocado and tomato but you get what I mean. There’s a wide array of seasonal veggies available at Trader Joe’s. I love their organic carrots!

blueberry muesli box

3. Blueberry Muesli. Their breakfast section never disappoints. Beware of their granola; you’ll find lots of extra sugar so just make sure you’re reading the nutrition labels and are comfortable with what you are purchasing. I’ve been really into this Blueberry Muesli lately. So good with vanilla almond milk!

bag of rolled oats

4. Oatmeal! These gluten free oats are my favorite to enjoy in the morning or to bake with. I love how inexpensive they are too!

jar of almond butter

5. Almond Butter! It can be difficult to find inexpensive almond butters, right? That’s when TJ’s steps in. They’ve got some pretty great varieties including creamy, chunky, salted and unsalted. I love them all because I’m a nut butter addict.

greek yogurt

6. Greek Yogurts! My favorite is the pomegranate because sometimes plain greek yogurt gets a little boring. This stuff is good as is for a snack or for breakfast spread on toast. Sometimes I’ll swirl in almond butter too!

package of turkey bacon

7. Turkey bacon. I’m not a huge meat eater, but when Tony eats meat in the morning, I always end up wanting some. A good solution is turkey bacon. I love that it’s minimally processed and nitrate-free. Serve it with eggs, toast and fruit for a filling breakfast.

crunchy peanut butter jars

8. Peanut butter with chia and flax! Only $2.99 for this jar? That’s good because I tend to go through peanut butter pretty quickly. I love the crunchiness of this nut butter and how I get extra nutrition in.

loaves of bread

9. Sprouted bread. If you love toast like I do, then you need to try this bread. It’s really only best when toasted. I recommend trying it with almond butter and banana slices.

maple syrup

10. Pure maple syrup. If I’m not buying maple syrup off Amazon, then I’m buying it from Trader Joe’s because it’s the least expensive I can find. I use this maple syrup in most of my baking recipes. It’s also great on pancakes and waffles!

raw honey

11. Raw organic honey. Remember it’s best to buy raw honey because it has all the good for you minerals. Read more about honey in my unrefined sweeteners guide.

jars of coconut oil

12. Organic unrefined coconut oil. It has great coconut flavor and is wonderful for baking, cooking and even using on your skin or hair. I even shave my legs with coconut oil! The benefits are beyond amazing.

bag of coconut flour

13. Organic coconut flour. This is the coconut flour I use. It’s super inexpensive and a little goes a long way in baked goods. Try out my coconut flour banana bread or my coconut flour chocolate chip cookies.

bag of trail mix

14. Trail mixes. I try not to buy too much trail mix from Trader Joe’s because I tend to go a little overboard on shoveling them into my mouth. What works best for me is dividing it up into baggies for perfectly portioned snacking.

candied ginger

15. Candied Ginger. My mom actually got me into these little snappy bites. They’re slightly sweet yet intense from the ginger. They also help with tummy troubles. So if your stomach is ever upset, chew on a few of these and it should feel better pretty quickly.

bag of dried pineapple

16. Dried Sweet Pineapple (unsulfered). Mmmm this stuff is addicting! I love munching on these when I’m on a long car ride or taking them with me when I travel. Sometimes they curb my sweet tooth too.

boxes of kind bars

17. Kind bars. They always have a full array of Kind bars that I love. The Dark Chocolate Cherry Cashew is delish, but my goodness don’t ever try to make me choose my favorite.

package of guacamole

18. Spicy Guacamole! I’m head over heels in love with guacamole. I personally think Tony makes the best spicy guacamole, but Trader Joe’s is pretty decent too. Use carrots or celery for dipping… or my favorite chips on the planet: Garden of Eatin’!

container of hummus

19. White Bean Basil Hummus. Probably my favorite thing at Trader Joe’s. I will never stop loving it. EVER.

cream cheese

20. Creamy Goat Cheese. INCREDIBLE spread on toasted french bread. Cheese lovers rejoice!

shelves with beans

21. ALL THE BEANS. Make black bean burgers or a fresh salad. Delicious and cheap!

package of tamales

22. Vegetarian Tamales! These are so great and easy for entertaining. Whip up some Spanish rice, guacamole and beans to serve with these. Such a fabulous, easy meal to enjoy!

chocolate covered bananas

23. Chocolate Covered Bananas. The only thing that’s missing is peanut butter.

bag of olive oil popcorn

24. Olive Oil Popcorn. This one is great if you are looking for a light snack.

dark chocolate bar

25. Dark Chocolate Bar (85%): Try this in cookies or straight from the freezer. It’s fairly low in sugar and rich like coffee. I need it right now.

corn and chile salsa

26. Tomato-less Corn Salsa. I love serving this over salmon or grilled chicken. Try it!

snap peas

27. Crunchy Pea and Bean snacks! Salty and more protein then your regular potato chip.

brown rice pasta

28. Brown Rice & Quinoa Pasta. Gluten free friends, rejoice! This pasta is delish!

bag of hemp seeds

29. Hemp Hearts! Try it on top of oatmeal or in baked goods.
