Frozen chocolate covered bananas – I love these frozen treats because they are a quick yummy frozen dessert for kids and adults!

FullSizeRenderCranberry-orange iced scones – These yummy treats only come out during the fall and I love them! They are great with a cup of coffee.

Produce – The organic strawberries are much less expensive than at other grocery stores – as are the naval oranges and bananas, my kids’ favorites.  I always grab some avocados as well.

IMG_0307Organic Brown Rice – This rice is found in the frozen section and is easy to add to a quick family meal – usually fish and salad.

Frozen Turkey Bolognese with Organic Brown Rice & Quinoa Pasta – I tried this not too long ago in the back tasting section of Trader Joe’s. Great for a quick meal that FullSizeRender6is always on hand and something the whole family will love.  (I add sauteed onions and garlic to the bolognese) Include a green veggie or a salad and you have a 10 minute meal.


Mini Ice Cream Cones
– My daughter and her friends have loved these tiny chocolate dipped cones as their summer treat.  They think they are great because they are so cute and I think they are great because the  portion size is much smaller!

Dark chocolate – You cannot beat their Dark Chocolate and Sea Salt covered almonds, Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter cups and dark chocolate IMG_0305covered mints. They all are to die for!

Fresh Flowers – Trader Joes has the best deals and their variety is always beautiful and fresh. I love treating friends with an occasional vase full of flowers and Trader Joe’s allows me to do that without spending a fortune.
