Today I made my very first trip to Trader Joe’s, and I was pretty impressed. Everything in the store looked edible … drool worthy … delicious but I narrowed my purchase down to:
- Jalapeno & cilantro hummus
- pomegranate greek yogurt
- French Roast Coffee
- Almond butter!
- Salmon Patties
While in Cleveland, we also had lunch at Melt and devoured the blackened chicken gourmet grilled cheese and 3 bean chili with chicken AND hand cut fries with malt vinegar. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm……….
Even though Trader Joe’s has a ton of delectable goodies for me to try, I was a little sad that they didn’t have more low calorie or low carb options. I need to find a store in the area that sells the crazy healthy items I’ve thus far only been able to find on the internet. I just put in my next Netrition order, so that shall fill the void in the meantime.
Some recipes I’d like to attempt this week (or sometime soon):
- Grilled Black Bean and Rice stuffed peppers
- Grilled Shrimp & Zucchini in a light tomato sauce
- Eggplant Ricotta Rolls
- Turkey Zucchini Burgers
Also searching for some healthy tapas recipes for the jewelry party I’m hosting Wednesday evening. The BF thinks these jewelry parties are like cults, I however enjoy them because it brings together a random group of women for a fun female-only evening. That sounds like a cult worth joining 🙂
Some thoughts of the tapas:
