Trader Joes, it’s been too long.
Like, nearly 6 weeks since I’ve graced your aisles of food items that I usually don’t need but just can’t seem to live without…
That’s pretty much the beauty of specality grocery stores.
Purple sweet potatoes, almond butter granola, jalapeño limeade…
Y’all, to me, those are needs, not just wants.
This paleo foodie gets so much joy out of discovering new snacks, treats, and everything in between.
So when I was just a few miles from a Trader Joe’s earlier this week and I knew the store was overflowing with pumpkin all the things, I couldn’t help but drag my teething tater of a 6.5 month old in for a half hour of paleo foodie bliss.
Of course, he thoroughly enjoyed himself, too.
So what wondrously delicious, fall-tastic and paleo(ish) goodies did I discover at Trader Joe's this week?
Oh. My. Lordy.
Just y’all wait.
AND, I decided to take things one step further and tell y'all how I'd use [nearly] each ingredient this week. So, if there's an item that you don't know how or why you'd buy it, click on the image for a link to one of my recipes to use it with.
Yup, it's like I've hooked y'all up with a shopping AND meal guide in one.
You are welcome.
Here y'all go...15 things y'all need to go buy from Trader Joe's now AND how I plan on using them (just click on the picture to zip over to one of my recipes)
Which of these paleo(ish) delights strikes your fancy and makes you want to sprint over to the nearest Trader Joe's?
Or, have you tried some of these already and care to share your thoughts/opinions/idea of how to use one?
I LOVE hearing from y'all, so leave me a comment telling me what y'all think. And if you head to Trader Joe's soon and pick up one of these, snap a pic and post to instagram, tagging me @michelle.mcnutt or #healthyhappytexan . You can also post to Facebook and tag me, Michelle McNutt, too!
