Updated TJ’s Shopping List

I am a loyal shopper of Trader Joe’s.

I discovered this find a couple of years ago and have never turned back. They have great, healthy selections with very reasonable prices. Although, like every supermarket, not everything they sell is “healthy”. You still have to read packages and ingredients.

I published this list quite a while ago and have since learned even more about healthier choices and selections. Plus, TJ’s has expanded it’s organic/non-GMO offerings – always a plus!

As before, I am not suggesting everything on this list is the perfect balance of nutrition, but most on the list are excellent choices. I have spent the time reading the packages and narrowing down selections.
