5 Healthy Must-Have Items from Trader Joe’s
If you read basically any of my recipes on here you know by now I am obsessed with Trader Joe’s. I figured why not share what I think are some of Trader Joe’s healthy must-have items!
1. Vegan Kale, Cashew & Basil Pesto
Not just for vegans- this pesto is just the bomb, and it’s healthy too! I like to mix this in with red sauces, or in pasta dishes where I make my own sauce. It’s also really good in sandwiches and on eggs! You can find this near the refrigerated pastas.
2. Organic Creamy Cashew Fiesta Dip
This dairy-free cheese dip alternative is so good with crackers, chips, or on sourdough toast. It’s a healthy alternative to nacho cheese dip, though it doesn’t have that consistency – it’s thicker, and quite delicious! I highly recommend heating it up for a bit before eating. This can be found in the hummus section.
3. Organic Buffalo Style Hummus
This hummus packs a flavorful punch without being overly spicy. The consistency is perfect- so smooth, and tastes great with crackers, on a sandwich or in a wrap!
4. Corn and Chile Tomato-less Salsa
This salsa is ALWAYS stocked in my house. It tastes great as a dip with tortilla chips, but I mainly use it in tuna salad (don’t knock it ’til you try it!), or in tacos. It’s SO GOOD!
5. Everything but the Bagel Sesame Seasoning Blend
This wouldn’t be a complete list without the Bagel Seasoning on here! This is literally a staple in my pantry. It takes avocado toast to the next level. It’s also great to season meats with, sprinkle on eggs, or even on veggies (definitely try it on roasted sweet potato!).
BONUS: If you haven’t already tried this, do yourself a favor and pick this up!… Trader Joe’s Sparkling Watermelon Juice!! I love that it has no added sugars, and honestly it’s just plain delicious!!! It’s so refreshing in the hot weather, and this mixed with a little vodka makes for such a yummy Summer cocktail!
Honestly, this list could go on and on but I wanted to keep it short. Next should I make a list of Trader Joe’s must-haves of “unhealthy” items?! Because we all know they have some DELICIOUS treats too! Let me know what your go-to Trader Joe’s products are..
