WIAW: Trader Joe’s Edition

I’m currently in Rhode Island for work but popping in with another glimpse of my daily eats, also known as What I Ate Wednesday! Yesterday was a pretty typical, albeit veggie heavy, day of food. I went to Trader Joe’s over the weekend and stocked up on all my favorite staples and have been making my way through them all week long.

Thanks to Laura for hosting this link-up. It’s one of my favorites to read through each week and I truly find so much inspiration from all of the posts!


Here’s a look at yesterday’s food…

Breakfast was a green smoothie. Just when I thought tropical fruity smoothies were my new favorite, I made my perfect green smoothie recipe and the peanut butter + banana combo won me over again. I used Trader Joe’s flax + chia seed peanut butter (the BEST) and it kept me full all morning long.

Lunch was a new favorite salad combo. I bought a bag of broccoli slaw at Trader Joe’s over the weekend and made a salad with broccoli slaw, chopped cucumber, grape tomatoes, honey roasted almonds and feta. I topped it with Harris Teeter greek yogurt dressing for one of the best lunches I’ve made this summer! I also had a pink lady apple on the side. They’re the best!

I also snacked on another unpictured apple and white chocolate macadamia Luna bar around 3. I always forget how much I love that flavor!

Dinner was taco salad with TJ’s spicy guac and greek yogurt. I am also addicted to TJ’s flax seed tortilla chips and try to find as many excuses to eat them as possible.

 Clearly Trader Joe’s has my heart.  The only negative thing about our house is that we’re about 20 minutes from the closest Trader Joe’s, whereas we used to be five minutes away. Although Nick would argue that that is probably a very, very good thing. :)

What was the best thing you ate yesterday? Are you a Trader Joe’s lover like me?
