A Few of my Trader Joe Favorites

July 11, 2017

Yesterday was a really good Sunday. We slept in. I made a simple breakfast. I went to a Hot Yoga class at 10:30. I ran a few errands. I got my steps in throughout the day. I planned for the week. I roasted a chicken and the house smelled like grandma’s.

I went to bed early and got 9 hours of sleep. Pretty good day, wouldn’t ya say?

Week 5 of the StepBet is now complete and I’m feeling really good about figuring out how to work steps in on a busy day.

I was at Trader Joe’s forever stocking up on a few favorites.

I always stock up on the raw nuts. These are great for salads, homemade trail mix or just for snacking!


I finally discovered why so many people are talking about this seasoning. I am loving it on so many different foods!


Loving this Mixed Nut Butter. 1 T. = 3 SmartPoints, but if you like a drizzle, then 1 tsp will do ya for 1 SmartPoints.


These are delicious with the nut butter or chopped up in your own homemade trail mix! The only ingredient is Apples! They do need to be counted though.

10 rings = 6 SmartPoints.


Here are yesterday’s eats…

Breakfast – 7 SP

Scramble Egg and Egg Whites with cooked Pork Sausage mixed in. Fresh Strawberries and a Pear.


Snack – 2 SP

Double Espresso Shot in a Venti cup with Ice and I added one 11 oz container of Premier Protein Vanilla. This was a great cool treat after Hot Yoga!
