My food treasures from Trader Joes
I went to Tradder Joes today. I enjoy that store so much, I could spend hours scouring the isles, reading labels, looking at all the yummy good for you foods. I came home with a couple bags full of treasures. Here are some pics of my finds.....
Ezekiel Bread! If you all have not tried this bread, you've got to try it. It is so delicious. Made from 100% sprouted whole grains. No flour what-so-ever! Low low glycemic index! Yum! I got a loaf of the Ezekiel 4:9 and also a loaf of the 4:9 cinnamon raisin (which I haven't tried yet, but will tomorrow morning with my egg whites..can't wait!)
Ezekiel also has tortilla wraps....so I had to get a package!
Got a couple tubs of Trader Joe brand Greek Yogurt. Can't wait to try this brand and see how it compares to Fage brand. It was about 1/2 the price so I'm anxious to see how I like it.
Mmmm, Mediterranean Hummus. This stuff is "to die for" absolutely amazing! Spread this baby on the Ezekiel sprouted tortilla wrap, top with sliced grilled marinated chicken, sweet peppers, onions, tomatoes, baby spinach...roll up and voila...nutritious, and amazing tasting!
Jar of Trader Joes Raw, Crunchy, Unsalted Almond Butter. I've only tried the creamy so I thought I'd see how the crunchy tickles my tastebuds!
I've been reading about Puffin cereal goodness all around the foodie blogs, so when I saw that TJ's had them, I had to grab me a box of the cinnamon. High fiber, low fat, wheat free. I think this will make a great mix in for the greek yogurt or some non fat Cottage cheese, or with unsweetened vanilla Almond milk...you think?
I have only tried the Amber Agave nectar so far (and I love it), so thought I'd give the blue agave a try. Also grabbed a couple cans of organic garbanzo and black beans.
I picked up a bag of Unsweetened, unsulfured dried Lychees while there, um, not so sure about these guys, maybe they will grow on me? LOL!
Last item in my food treasure finds is Trader Joe brand 72% Dark chocolate bars. Yummy! I will only allow myself to have a few squares on my laxed days.
So, that is what was in my two goodie bags from today's shopping expedition. Hope you see something that tickles your fancy and you want to try.
