Honeybee Health: Trader Joe Goodies

Here are some of my favorites from Trader Joes! 
These are SO tasty and a great on the go snack option! They're under 150 calories and have 9grams of fiber, 6 grams of protein and only 6 grams of sugar! Highly recommend! I even have these as an after dinner snack when i'm craving something sweet.

My hubby LOVES a vodka sauce. Unfortunately vodka sauce is usually pretty high in fat. This one from Traders is lower in fat and still tastes great. I use this sauce with lean ground turkey meat or Chicken sausage and bell peppers.

This Gnocchi is a HIT in our house! Theres no heavy cream just marinara, basil and a little mozzarella. Its a perfect side dish when you want something tasty in a hurry!
I've been using these makeup wipes from Trader Joes for years! I have crazy sensitive skin (esp around my eyes) and these are perfect for that and not to mention super affordable!
And whats a trip to Traders without something sweet?! These babies were calling my name and I had to try them. SO GOOOOD! They are around 250 calories and I think 8 grams of fats so not to bad!

*What Trader Joe Goodies are you ladies loving?!

  6. These are COMPLETELY unhealthy, but for once a year (or twice) I will go to TJ's specifically for their chocolate covered potato chips. True story.

  7. Those ice cream sandwiches look awesome. You should try the green tea (or other flavor) mochi - it's in the frozen dessert section. Sooo tasty!

  8. i am TOTALLY going to have to hit up TJ's ASAP to grab some of these goodies!!! my fav is the chocolate covered banana bites

  9. I have never tried any of these - or even noticed them. Next time I go, I must pick up some of these items! I used to love their chocolate covered almonds, and their chocolate bars are way better then Godiva's. I read a NY Times article awhile ago, that a lot of Trader Joe's "Trader Joe" branded products are actually products made by really high quality food companies - these are items that they sell in other stores for much higher prices (and fancier packaging). Thanks for sharing your picks!

  12. I love love love Trader Joes! I will have to try those Fiber Bars and makeup remover. I have extremely sensitive skin so will look forward to picking those up. I have been getting the mini chocolate peanut butter candies. I stick them in the freezer and just grab a small handful and that satisfies my sweet tooth. They're so yummy!

  18. I looooove Trader Joes. Thank you for posting this. I spend hours browsing for healthy options at Trader Joes. I love the mini ice cream cones, baby spinach, mixed green mix, sesame soy vinaigrette, when I'm lazy I buy their precooked salmon and have it over spinach and the sesame vinaigrette for lunch. Their chocolate covered pretzels are great but I had to cut back, lol. I also love their instant oatmeal. its whole grain with real blue berries and i think it has flaxseed mixed in. Its great to take to work. I also love their crunchy almond butter...You are amazing Andee!!! Thank you for opening my eyes to more delicious options. Loove all your posts.

  19. I just picked up those makeup wipes, too! We don't have a Trader Joe's close, but when I splurge & go to Columbus, OH I always stop there!

    PS- Love the blog!! You are so pretty, and seem to have such a positive attitude on life. Commendable!

  20. I'm sure they aren't very good for me, but I'm in love with the Feta Cheese and Carmelized Onion Puff Pastry Tarts. I try to only get them for parties, otherwise I could probably eat an entire tray all by myself. Everyone has a guilty pleasure right?? lol : )
