Trader Joe’s Breakfast Trek Mix

Granola, Roasted & Salted Almonds, Cranberries & Greek Yogurt Flavored Chips This is one of my favorite trek, or trail mixes that Trader Joe’s offers. It’s a lower-calorie option than some of the trail mixes, and having the sweet and salty mix of flavors, makes it one of my personal favorites. I haven’t really figured out what makes this a breakfast trek mix, since to me it has many of the same nuts, and berries that other trail mixes that Trader Joe’s offers have. Perhaps…

The Baked Potato – Cheap and Ready to Eat

Well, Ready to Eat After You Cook Them That Is! I am a huge fan of baked potato's, both because they are relatively inexpensive, and very easy to cook. Sure, there are many places that you can get a baking potato, everywhere from your local Kroger, to in some quick markets. Yet, those that I get at Trader Joe's I feel tend to be a bit fresher, a tad bigger, and much more flavorful. Of course, being honest there are very few baking potato's that…

Eggs, Not Just for Breakfast…

Eggs can be for Lunch and Dinner too! Eggs are one of my favorite foods that I get from Trader Joe's. I know you can get them pretty much at any grocery store, but I tend to pick them up at Trader's more often, for two reasons. One is because I am pretty much only ever at Trader Joe's for fresh items, and two I think that they may be fresher, and therefore more tasty. When you pick up a dozen of eggs, you are…

Did You Know that Trader Joe’s has Burgers?

Beef, Turkey, Veggie, Oh My!!

People are Obsessed with Trader Joe’s Frozen Foods

Of course Trader Joe's is my favorite store, but it always makes me giggle a bit to find out how much others enjoy it. Especially when those flattering comments about Trader Joe's are being shared by a mainstream news source. The video below is from Business Insider, an online publication, that for the most part focuses on business news. This video is one of their more playful, and is featuring comments from their own reporters (I assume) about the benefits, and enjoyment that they get…

When You Need a Quick Meal, Trader Joe’s has you Covered

Look No Further for a Refreshing Pasta Salad When you have had a long day, cooking is the last thing that you want to do. What better way to end the day then is a quick stop in your local Trader Joe's for a quick meal. No, I'm not suggesting that like Whole Foods, that Trader Joe's has started serving meals, and offering tables to eat at, but instead pick up one of these great pastas and salads. They are always fresh, almost amazingly so…

Happy Fourth of July

Independence Day, also referred to as the Fourth of July or July Fourth, is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence 241 years ago on July 4, 1776. The Continental Congress declared that the thirteen American colonies regarded themselves as a new nation, the United States of America, and were no longer part of the British Empire. The Congress actually voted to declare independence two days earlier, on July 2. Independence Day is commonly associated with fireworks, parades, barbecues, carnivals, fairs, picnics, concerts, baseball games, family reunions, and political speeches and ceremonies, in addition to various other public and private events…

I love salads of most any kind, and I have a special fondness for Caesar salads, of which I have had many types of the years.
