These healthy Trader Joes recipes are inspired by TJs specialty items and grocery staples to inspire your next shopping trip.
Hi friends, I hope you had a lovely Father’s Day weekend.
As you guys know, I LOVE Trader Joe’s. I discovered them in Grad School and was instantly hooked. What’s not to love? The stores are small, so you don’t get overwhelmed. Pre world pandemic world they used to have all kinds of samples like wine and cheese, coffee, featured items, and more. And, there is an obvious commitment to cleaner food items (although I’m not sure if it’s stated anywhere. ) I mean even there candy is free of artificial colors, so I think that’s pretty awesome.
I’ve written about my Trader Joe’s Pantry staples before, my favorite Healthy Trader Joe’s Snacks, shared grocery hauls with y’all, and recently shared a 7-day Healthy Trader Joe’s Meal plan and shopping list. However, I realized when I put together that meal plan that there were A TON of recipes I could have put on it but didn’t have space.
You can only eat so much in a week, right?
The thing about Trader Joe’s is they aren’t a giant grocery store, you can’t get everything you ever wanted there. But, on the flip side, they also have specialty items you can’t get anywhere else (like cauliflower gnocchi.) So, today I’m rounding up all the recipes on my site that are TJ’s inspired. Some of the recipes with specialty items, some of the recipes with regular items you know you can find there, but all delicious inspiration for your next shopping trip!
