I have a serious love affair going on with Trader Joe's. Who doesn't, right?! I can browse their aisles for hours (and sometimes have to because they never label what's down them. What's up with that TJs?) I recently shared on Insta-stories a TJs find and so many people DM'd me wanting to know if I liked the product. I figured this might be something others want to read about too. So without further ado, my favorite tried and true TJ staples (*fingers and toes crossed* that they never discontinue them, 'cause they do have a bad habit of doing that!)

1. Ultra Moisturizing Hand cream: the best $5 hand cream I've ever bought. OK, the only $5 hand cream I've ever bought. Super luxurious without the grease (and the cray price tag!). Also Paraben free = major win.

2. Chunky Spicy Guac: call me basic but I cannot get enough avocado/guac. Gimme All. the. Guac. This is a great spicy guac that I don't have to make myself. I also love the Avocado's Number Guac to Go single serve packets. They are great additions to...

(please ignore the fact that I need a manicure)

3. Pre-packed salads: If you haven't already picked up on this, I like to pack healthy food for work without all the drama it usually takes to pack a healthy lunch. Thank goodness for TJ's pre-packed salads. I'll buy 3 (for the 3 shifts I'll typically do in a week) and they hold up all week long. They have some great combos but my favs are: the Southwest salad, the Broccoli Slaw & Kale salad with chicken,  and the Mexicali salad.

3. Mini Dark Chocolate Bars: There are SO many great options at TJs for basically chocolate covered everything. I love these single-serving dark chocolate bars because...well, portion control. I can indulge without the risk of finding the {full sized} truffle chocolate bar wrapper - empty- after a Friends binge-watching session. That's a hypothetical scenario of course...

4. Just Mango Slices: Great mid-day snack. Easy to cart to work. Sweet without added sugar.

5. Single serving Organic Acai Puree Packets: Again with making my life easier. This product is basically *superfoods* made super easy. I love adding them to my smoothie in the morning.

6. Chunky Almond Butter: I've looked everywhere, including Christmas Tree Shoppe (yup..) and TJ's has the cheapest organic almond butter around without sacrificing taste.

7. Go Raw trail mix: A great trail mix without having to buy all the stuff individually and combine it yourself. SO many different options. My only complaint is how they use fake M&Ms in the one called "Rainbow's Trail" (yes that's the real name.) Just use the real stuff guys. Currently, I'm into their raw mix (and occasionally add my own M&Ms....)
