Current Trader Joe’s Obsessions…

My meal mantra for this week is “eat your vegetables,” but woman cannot survive on rabbit food alone, so I had to sneak some chocolate and cheese onto this list, ha ha!

  • Just Beets: These dehydrated beets can kindasorta take the place of chips on my plate when I’m eating a sandwich…

    I actually like beets, and I think these taste really good. They’re a little sweet and a little salty. They’re also CRUNCHY and surprisingly filling.

  • Crispy Crunchy Broccoli Florets: These crunchy fried broccoli florets are dangerously delicious and addictive.
  • Seasoned Kale Chips Dressed With Cashew butter Tahini: I’m still not all aboard the kale train yet, but I actually don’t mind these gluten-free kale chips.

    They’re crispy, which hits the spot sometimes, amirite? And they taste a little cheesy, too.

  • Oven-Baked Cheese Bites: Mm… Crunchy medallions of cheesy nirvana…

    These baked cheesy bits are gluten-free and protein rich, and they have a strong, sharp flavor that tastes like a mix of cheddar and Parmesan to me.

    Five or six of ’em, and I’m a happy camper.

  • Mini Milk Chocolate Bars: There are five individually wrapped bars per box, and the creamy, smooth chocolate melts on your tongue.

    I don’t know how they squeezed so much chocolate flavor into these bars, but however they did it, they definitely don’t just taste like sugar and butter. If you like Lindt truffles, you’ll probably like these. They also come in a dark chocolate version, which I haven’t tried yet because dark chocolate tastes like punishment to me.

  • Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies: Ever since El Hub was diagnosed with Celiac disease last fall, I’ve tried to keep an open mind about gluten-free baking…

    I mean, I’ve tried…but to be honest, most gluten-free stuff just depresses me, especially the gluten-free bread, UGH. But some of the gluten-free cookies I’ve tried aren’t half bad, like these.

    They’re crispity, crunchity buttery cookies have a very satisfying snap, and the chocolate is droolingly flavorful.

  • Fresh Mozzarella Cheese Sticks: When you want bougie cheese sticks that taste more special than basic string cheese, these are pretty good. Sometimes I chop a couple of them up with some cherry tomatoes and drizzle balsamic vinegar on top.


  • Frozen Cheese Pizza with a Cauliflower Crust: This actually tastes like REAL cheese pizza to me! IT’S INCREDIBLE. When I have this, I don’t ever feel like it tastes “less than” flour pizza. Both the cheese they use and the red pizza sauce are so good on their own that I don’t even feel like I have to doctor them up with anything. Bonus: It’s gluten-free!
