I love getting nutty in Trader Joe’s. They have a great selection of nuts and seeds from raw to roasted, conventional to organic, whole to pieces. We are talking walnuts cashews, peanuts, pecans, roasted pecan pieces I make these yummy vegan Geneva cookies with roasted pecan pieces), pepitas, candied walnuts, raw almonds (great for making almond milk) etc. etc. Then they have the dried fruit and dried fruit and nut mixes.
Coconut bits are the latest find a Trader Joe’s. They make great toppings for desserts or vegan yogurt, garnish your smoothie or just straight up eat them or dunk them in melted chocolate. You can’t go wrong! If you are a coconut lover these babies are right up your ally.
Their fresh produce is awesome with lots of organic options and the price is right. Most stores price by the weight but Trader Joe’s doesn’t. It is whatever it says it is like $.17 bananas. You can’t get anything for $.17 anymore, that’s, well, bananas!
Vegan salad dressing plus an abundant selection of vegan condiments as well.
Tofu, tempeh, vegan hotdogs and everything in the refrigerated vegan section.
Lots of frozen veggies – organic corn, green beans, artichokes to name a few.
Great frozen fruit for smoothies like mango, pineapple and berries.
For your super sweet tooth there are vegan ice cream sandwiches and this strawberry coconut ice cream was insanely delicious. Comes in chocolate too.
Almond milk and lots of other nondairy milks.
Maybe the best thing about Trader Joe’s, the labels. Everything that is vegan is labeled vegan.
