My Trader Joe's Staples

You know you’re becoming an “adult” when you suddenly have grocery stores you like more than others. Trader Joes is this for me. When thinking about moving from Greenville I had it in my head that I couldn’t move anywhere that didn’t have a Trader Joes. While this would definitely be negotiable, I’m glad it didn’t have to be when coming to Birmingham. Over the past few years, I’ve come to gravitate toward the same items consistently when stocking up at Trader Joes and today I thought it would be fun to share those with you. 

Although most of you probably adore Trader Joes some of you may be unfamiliar with my holy grail of a grocery store. For anyone who falls in that category, Trader Joes, for the most part, carries their own brand. Their prices are great and I'm always able to find what I need. 

I’ve decided to set up this post by where in the story these items can be purchased in order to attempt to make your life a bit easier. While the photos don’t necessarily provide the most clarity, I’ve shared the names underneath each one. 

Frozen Food

Quinoa, Chicken Fried Rice, Chicken Tenderloins, Turkey Burgers, Grilled Chicken Strips. Brown Rice, Margarita Pizza, Cauliflower

Refrigerator Foods

Broccoli Florets, Baby Spinach, Kale, Shredded 3 Cheese Blend, Edamame, Ground Turkey, Perfect Bars

Pantry Foods

Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups, Granola Bars, Avocados, Whole Wheat Wraps, Sweet Potatoes, Mini Cheese Bites, Limes, Pita Chips, Candied Pecans, Chocolate Chunks, Cheddar Cheese Bites


Soyaki, Coconut Oil Spray, Olive Oil, Taco Seasoning Mix, Pepper, Seasoning Salt, Himalayan Pink Salt, Cinnamon, Everything But The Bagel (not pictured)

I would love to know what some of your Trader Joe’s staples are so that I can add them to my shopping list next time!
