Hi friends! Happy Friday.
Sorry this post is going up a bit later in the morning than usual, Mauricios company Christmas Party was last night on top of the Prudential Center so we were out pretty late. The theme was ‘Casino Night’ which was actually so fun! Normally Company Christmas Parties are super awkward and you find yourself sucking down drink after drink trying to make it more bearable. lol.
Luckily for me (since I don’t have the option of doing that right now) this wasn’t the case. They had various casino games (Craps, Black Jack, Roulette, etc) laid out around the room with actual table attendants monitoring them. We were playing with fake money (they gave us each a $5,000 chip when we walked in) so of course the rules were very lenient, but it was actually so fun. Mauricio and I ended up staying at the Craps table all night, which is a great way to mix and mingle with his co-workers without just awkwardly standing there making idle conversation as you clutch your drink.
Anyway, that lasted 4 hours so by the end of the night my feet were pretty tired and I was ready to hit the hay. But as luck would have it, baby boy decided to wake up right as I laid down for the night and he proceeded to kick and squirm around until 3:30 in the morning.
Needless to say, I’m dragging a bit this morning.
But on to the point of todays post… What to Buy at Trader Joes!
My favorite of their soups. Ingredients aren’t wonderful, but it sure is tasty.
PS- for a low fat soup, this tastes way creamier than most! It’s definitely filling.
**Cauliflower Soup: Good but you have to add a bit of seasoning to it**
Best place to buy zoodles if you don’t want to spiralize them yourself.
They are so over-priced everywhere else!
I eat these with PB2!
I use these to bulk up meals. Eggs, Zucchini Pasta, Stir Frys, you name it.
same with this ^ great way to add in Fiber to your diet. Cook on stove top!
Great pasta alternative!
I put this on everything! Great source of B12 if you don’t eat a lot of red meat ^
I cook this in the microwave- super easy! BUT again, add seasonings to it otherwise its bland.
Tastes nothing like Eggplant I swear ^
Great low fat cheese option if you like cheese
Yum- Highly recommend this Hummus ^ this and the Eggplant hummus are my two favorites.
I can’t seem to find the Eggplant hummus here in Boston for some reason so I’ve just been
getting this one lately. Anyone from the North East… Do your Trader Joes not carry Eggplant Hummus?!
Another great dip option! I love dipping pretzels in this ^
I use this to make a breakfast scramble when I’m doing my Vegan Days.
Not as good as real cheese, but does the job.
This stuff is amazing IF and only IF you are one of those people that can eat a serving size
and then put it away. Don’t eat this out of the bag or you’ll finish half the bag before realizing you just
ate 1500 calories of granola. lol.
So if you are one of those people who can’t resist eating more than the serving,
this is a safer option!
Great for when you’re craving something fizzy!
Personal avocados…love these!!
