Oh for the love of Trader Joe’s! It’s undeniably one of everyone’s favorite grocery stores. They have a ton of healthy options and items that are unique to their brand. I stop by about every 2 weeks or so and keep some regulars on hand. Here’s my top 8 that you won’t usually find me without.
1. 21 Seasoning Salute
This stuff is seriously underrated! Everyone gravitates toward the “Everything But The Bagel” seasoning, but seriously you gotta have this stuff. I put it on everything! Chicken, pasta, bread, in olive oil and vinegar, steak, potatoes…the list goes on.
2. Green Goddess Salad Dressing
In the last 6 months I have realized I am incredibly picky about my salad dressings. This one passes my test. It’s thick, and so good on a variety of types of salads!
3 + 4. Chicken Shawarma and Pita Bread
This ready to go, marinated chicken shawarma is probably my boyfriends favorite Trader Joe’s meal. We love Greek food and this is so easy. I will also get their humas and boom you have a meal. We cook the shawarma on the grill, but you could also throw it on a pan in the oven. Then we fill the pita with humas, yellow rice, and chicken. YUM!
5. Handmade Flour Tortillas
Yes, you read that right. Handmade. These tortillas are soooo good! I cant even come up with a way to describe them. You just need to try them.
6. Naan Bread
So there are two types of naan bread that Trader Joe’s sells. This one in the picture above is just the plain version. I actually usually buy the one in green packaging that is the garlic and herb version. I prefer the garlic version, but this was good with butter. You simply put it in the oven for a few minutes to warm it up and it’s good to go.
7. Orange Chicken
This is such an easy and quick dinner. The chicken goes on a pan in the oven and the sauce is in a packet in the bag. I like to serve it with white rice too.
8. Chow Mein
You could also serve this with the orange chicken! I like it as a meal as well. It’s not very filling with the amount of chicken in it so I like to add a chicken thigh to it. It does make a great mid day meal though.
What are your go to grocery items at Trader Joes?

I’m obsessed with the Green Goddess dressing! Vegan & dairy-free, something hard to find in a dressing. Also, that seasoning looks so good. I have to try it! Thanks for sharing (:

Definitely try the seasoning Erika!
That seasoning looks amazing! I also love the naan at Trader Joe’s, and the frozen meals! You have to try the French brioche bread if you haven’t yet!
Never had that! Adding it to my list right now.
Ahh I love this! I recently moved to an area where Trader Joes is a mile away so I’ve been frequently going. I definitely need to pick up this salad dressing!
You have to try the salad dressing Logan! There’s so many goodies at TJ!
